What is the Silicon Valley Sports League?

A great excuse . . .for Silicon Valley’s best and brightest to spend the summer getting to know their coworkers friends and future staff friends while having fun and getting in shape. Want a preview? Watch this:

SVB/SVSL 2013

Forty eight companies.

Forty eight companies.

Twenty four teams in Palo Alto. Twenty four in San Francisco. We do everything we can to select a cross-section of the internet – from giants like Yahoo and Facebook to midsize companies like Lyft and Square all the way down to a team of 500 Startups CEOs.

Eight Weeks.

Eight Weeks.

We play on Saturday afternoons in San Francisco (St. Ignatius) and Sundays in Palo Alto (Mitchell Park). It’s a great excuse to get away from the computer screens, enjoy some fresh air and get to know your coworkers in a more casual setting.

Six sports.

Six sports.

To keep things lively, we play a different sport every week.  Kickers have soccer & kickball, hitters have softball & volleyball, and throwers have football & ultimate frisbee.  Some people play every week, some play only once or twice.

Something for everybody. Friends, family, and fans.

Something for everybody. Friends, family, and fans.

SVSL is for everybody, not just athletes, so we always have some fun activities planned for everybody else. Last year we did everything from corn-hole and bocce ball to flying cash machines and art projects for kids.

The Championship is at Candlestick Park.

The Championship is at Candlestick Park.

Like all things Silicon Valley, we like going big, so at the end of the season we do the playoffs and Championship under the lights at Candlestick Park.  I mean come on, who doesn’t like the idea of winning the big game under the lights at Candlestick?

The winner gets a billboard on the 101.

The winner gets a billboard on the 101.

First prize: a brand new Cadillac.  Second prize: a set of steak knives.  Third prize: you’re fired.   We considered this prize scheme, but opted to buy the winner a billboard on the 101 instead.

Plus, a huge charity event called the Tech Carnival.

Our favorite day of the year is the annual Tech Carnival — a massive charity event that brings everybody in Silicon Valley together for food, fun, games, rides and a good cause. This year we supported the Mission Bit Foundation – and 5,000 of our friends showed up to help.

The average SVSL company raised $47,000,000 after playing last year.

Don't take our word for it . . .
