About Us



"Building Community Through Sports, Social & Charitable Events"


Our Mission


San Diego Social Leagues is a nonprofit 501C(3), community building organization that passionately believes in the transformative power of sports; that we can bring people together and strengthen our communities particularly those that are underserved.

So many great opportunities come from sports; friendships are made, good health is realized and with our reliable (and fun!!) programs we are able to keep members highly engaged while providing outreach to critical vulnerable groups.  When we look at the social problems of our day we realize that human connection and support are paramount in navigating the systems of the world we have created.  San Diego Social Leagues aims to be a beacon to those whom need what we offer to their lives.




Sports Leagues:

We offer Men's, Women's and co-ed basketball, slow pitch softball, volleyball, flag football, kickball, volleyball and soccer (bowling coming soon!!). We pride ourselves in providing a fair, fun and safe environment for all of our participants.  Whether you are out to play with old friends, meet new friends or test your game, we have a place for you.

Addiction & Recovery: 

Dedicated leagues and events for community members in recovery during high trigger weekend time frames and including daytime options too so that there is always a healthy outlet to sway someone from the alternative.


SDSL is committed to ending the cycle of recidivism.  We offer leagues and programs specific to transitioning reentry individuals where consistency is key.  This also includes job training programs where we train-to-hire qualified members in sports management and the health and fitness spaces.

Veteran Support:

For years now, San Diego Social Leagues has been working with other nonprofits like All Star Vets and Veteran Green Projects to support our service men and women locally and beyond.  Helping the transition from service to civilian life is challenging.  We aim to not only recognize active Armed Service Veterans for their contributions to our security, but also help engage Veterans to become active members in the civilian community, a feat which is more difficult than we believe was anticipated.  We aim to reduce the suicide rate and improve the life productivity elements needed to give someone purpose and appreciate their value beyond their military service.

Food Insecurity:  

It amazes us that with all the wealth our country has, that we still have basic needs not being met for families sustenance demand.  In partnership with It's All About the Kids, we aim to have dry goods collection at ALL of our events.  We encourage our members to bring canned or dry goods each week and collect them to be delivered to the IAATK food pantry where the goods are delivered to those in need. 

Corporate Team Building:

Team building activities are a way to enhance the communication between your employees, build skills, develop decision-making and problem-solving abilities, provide high-impact learning, and improve productivity and morale. Your San Diego, CA company will benefit through increased cooperation among your employees and a feeling of accomplishment for every individual. Through our team building activities, icebreakers, and events, we will help the members of your team create bonds that are authentic and deep.

The main goals of team-building are to improve motivation and productivity. Taking employees out of the office helps people break down personal and political barriers, eliminate distractions, and have fun.
