Contributing to one’s community is a reward in and of itself.

When Floresville High School alumnus Chezare Perez earned his degree from Texas A&M University-Kingsville in sports management, his goal was always to contribute back to his hometown community. But in what manner? The manner most familiar to the former college basketball player -- team sports.

Perez’s initial league, Floresville All About Sports, began more than a year ago and immediately gained traction with basketball tournaments held at the Floresville Event Center. Recently the league merged with a league managed by Perez’s former college colleague, Charles Watson, the well-established San Antonio-based Elite Sporting Entertainment.

The goal now is to attract more bodies from the Wilson County area.

The establishment of sports leagues in the area provides an avenue for locals to get out, be active, be social, and have fun without having to make a trip to another county.

“Most people don’t know about leagues around them; they don’t want to drive to San Antonio,” Perez said.

In addition to adding another fitness option, it also provides another opportunity to break the monotony that can sometimes come with routine. Perez said a game day in the week does just that and gives participants “something else to look forward to” in their week.

The most gratifying aspect of the endeavor, according to Perez, is the prospect of giving people another competitive outlet. He cites the athletic talent levels of Wilson County as a great reason something like this can be successful in the area.

“People don’t have the opportunity to go play college football or basketball,” Perez said.”They have the talent, but they don’t have the privilege to go do it, so this allows your inner star to go and compete.”

Elite Sporting features co-ed softball, men’s basketball, co-ed volleyball, and men’s flag football among its leagues. One will start April 19; three have already begun.

Perez said prizes for league winners and participants range from shirts and trophies, to cash prizes and T-shirts. Perez, pending the success and reception of the leagues, hopes to increase the league’s social media and online digital presence with player interviews, highlight reels, and clips to showcase the local talent.

Adult sports leagues essentially capitalize on an expanding population, increasingly health-conscious mentality in our society, and social-competitive opportunities.
