Got Spring fever?
DC Fray is on a mission to make fun possible, and registration in Arlington is open now until March 26. Sign up for a league by yourself, with friends or even make a team of your own. But no matter what, get ready to meet other go-getting people looking to make new friends through good, old-fashioned fun.
What do people find appealing about social sports?
Endless Sport Options
There are over 15 leagues to choose from including kickball, soccer, volleyball, cornhole and flag football, so there’s something for everyone to have fun with. Each league also partners with a local Arlington bar so you can keep the party rolling and make hanging with DC Fray the best part of your week.
Meet New People
It’s no secret that Washington D.C. locals thrive off the connections they make, and meeting teammates on social sports teams is no different. Making friends at work isn’t as easy as it seems. That’s where DC Fray can help. Game time is the time to leave work behind and make new friends who challenge you to do just that: let loose!
Fall in Love
Yes, that’s happened! We’re not matchmakers, unless you’re at one of our speed dating events, but there are countless stories of players meeting on the field and creating history of their own. There’s even more stories of lifelong friendships growing out of DC Fray leagues, so don’t miss out on the opportunity to find your people.
Diversify Your Workouts
Are you getting tired of your same, old gym routine? Sports games are a great substitute. With loads of friendly competition, you’ll sweat enough to really feel like you’re putting in work. Working out alone can become boring (and expensive), so save money and make working out something you look forward to every week.
Here’s an extra reason to love DC Fray a little more… Sporting DC Fray gear can get you some pretty cool perks you don’t want to miss out on. Ranging from discounted memberships at Balance Gym to discounted tickets for Washington Nationals Games, if you weren’t sold on the whole social sports thing before, you definitely should be now.
Start Your “Weekend” Early
Stop living for the weekend and make your weeknights just as fun by joining a social sports league. You’ll have set plans with cool people once a week, so you won’t have to go through the trouble of trying to round up your friends for a last minute night on the town.
Sports leagues aren’t all we have to offer. Every month we host super fun events to keep you busy as the warm weather rolls in and you grow restless waiting for summer.
And when summer comes? Summer leagues!

Since the Arlington Chorale returned to in-person singing one year ago, local amateur singers have been signing up for auditions in unprecedented numbers. “Thirty of our current members joined within the last year,” says Ingrid Lestrud, Artistic Director. “Many of them have recently moved to Arlington, and they want to join a community. Chorale members get to sing beautiful music and meet a diverse group of people who love singing as much as they do!”
The singers are busy preparing their December 10 concert, Christmas Joy! Featuring John Rutter ‘s Magnificat and Kirke Mechem’s _Seven Joys of Christmas_ , audiences will hear familiar Christmas carols, as well as beautiful music with hints of tango, musical theatre, and jazz. The singers will be accompanied by a chamber orchestra of local professional players, and the concert will highlight the talents of soprano Helena Colindres. Members of the Chorale’s outreach group, the Youth Community Council, and select singers from the Chorale will be singing Christmas carols outside the venue as audience members arrive. After the performance, everyone is invited to join the singers downstairs for a reception with light refreshments. It’s a special community event you won’t want to miss! Tickets are $20 for adults and free for children under 12 available here. Please join the Arlington Chorale on **Saturday, December 10 at 5:00 PM at Westover Baptist Church!**
NCE’s Holiday Concert will bring the finest classical masterpieces and holiday favorites together for the whole family. The festivities begin with Leroy Anderson’s classic “Sleigh Ride” and “Chanukkah Festival”, music from the Nutcracker and by J.S. Bach.
