We want to be a part of the solution to making Akron a more fun place to live, socialize & play.

In collaboration with The City of Akron, Lock 3, and Downtown Akron Partnership, we originally obtained a license agreement to pilot co-ed sand volleyball leagues in the heart of downtown behind Canal Park in 2016. By the end of our first session, we worked to expand our scope to meet the feedback and demands of our engaged participants of varying backgrounds and abilities.

Our leagues and events serve as a vehicle to bring an eclectic group of local community members together to stay in Akron and to play in Akron. Stay in Play Recreation gives people a regular opportunity to exercise and expand their network in a unique and original setting through recreational sports and activities.

Offering programming that varies from more laid-back approachable recreational leagues to serious and fiercely competitive groupings, we’re confident you won’t regret adding our routine dose of fun to your week.

After piloting different sports & events, we now offer seasonal and year round programming including volleyball, dodgeball, kickball, Spikeball, and bocce ball bringing hundreds of active Akronites together to play.
