BANGOR, Maine — Sports enthusiasts will have a new way to engage in recreation while meeting fellow Bangor Region young professionals through “Fusion Sports,” a new program from Fusion:Bangor.
Fusion:Bangor, a program of the Bangor Region Chamber of Commerce, is the area’s networking group for people generally in the age range of 20-40. The organization seeks to connect this demographic in the Bangor Region to each other and the community. Fusion Sports will allow young adults (or the young at heart) who are interested in sports to stay active, get involved and meet new people.
Fusion Sports kicks off Wednesday, March 6, with a six-week Dodgeball League through Bangor Parks and Recreation. Nine teams already have signed up and will be vying for the title of Dodgeball Champion. Games will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. every Wednesday until April 17.
“The friendly competition and love of the classic game of dodgeball will provide a fun opportunity for the region’s young professionals, while allowing them to expand their professional and social circles,” says Fusion Sports Chairman Zach Means.
Fusion Sports is made possible by Geaghan’s Pub and Craft Brewery, the program’s Champion Sponsor. Fusion Sports participants will be heading to Geaghan’s after every dodgeball game to enjoy their delicious food and craft brews.
Bangor Region businesses have been supportive of Fusion Sports’ launch by creating and sponsoring dodgeball teams. Team sponsors include Cross Insurance, Old Town Canoe, Means Investment, Northeast Packaging Co., Epic Sports, WBRC, BerryDunn and UCU. Each business’ team will have its own jerseys featuring a logo on the front and Geaghan’s logo on the back.
