Legacy Locker’s Clubhouse Guide to Fantasy Football
Does your clubhouse have a fantasy football league yet? As popular as these leagues are, your clients are probably already forming them, so why not sponsor a clubhouse league? It’s as easy as setting up a league online, throwing a draft party and then kicking back and having some fun.
Fun for fun’s sake isn’t the only reason to host a league though, there are also ways fantasy sports can benefit your clubhouse. They foster camaraderie & bring people together in a fun way that connects them more firmly to your organization. If you want people to spend time in your clubhouse, it’s important to give them activities that they can eagerly anticipate, and that will help them form friendships.
- The first step in forming a fantasy football league is deciding which site you’ll use to host it. Take your time and make sure whichever one you choose has all the features you want. You can choose a free site, such as Yahoo! or Fleaflicker, but they don’t have as many extras as paid sites such as My Fantasy League.
- The next important decision you’ll make is in inviting members to join the league. Put out a call for team owners, and you’re likely to get a variety of eager volunteers; make sure those who make the cut are in it for the long haul. You want people who will stick to it, even when things go awry with their teams. A good way to incentivize participation is to offer a prize to the top team at the end of the season.*
- A party is a great way to kick off your draft. If your clubhouse has Wi-Fi, you can easily host it there, offering food and drinks, as well as a place for people to mingle and pick their teams. It’s also a good use of your budget to buy fantasy football supplies, like draft boards, t-shirts, player cards and so on. The draft is really half the fun and your clubhouse’s time to shine as an event venue.
