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 2015

Twenty four companies.

Twenty four companies.

Twenty four teams 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). 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 Epic.

The Championship is Epic.

Like all things Silicon Valley, we like going big, so at the end of the season we’ll do a March Madness-style single-elimination bracket and add in games & prizes for sports players and non-sports players alike!

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.

Play for Good.

Play for Good.

Every year our league supports a local nonprofit. We’ve partnered with organizations like New Door Ventures and the Mission Bit Foundation, investing in the future of our tech community.

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

Don't take our word for it . . .
