Vehicle gates at some of our parks will close for the season on October 1, but you can still enjoy Kalamazoo's parks in the fall and winter!
Calling all middle school gaming enthusiasts! We are partnering with Western Michigan University (WMU) to offer a Super Smash Bros Esports League this fall at WMU’s Esports Arena!
Teams from each participating school will compete for the Super Smash Bro’s Team Trophy and medals. The first 5 weeks of the season you will have a match on either Monday or Thursday evening, and you will play a minimum of 3 matches against 3 different students from another school.
Scores are recorded every night to keep track of school and individual standings. A Team & Individual championship tournament will be held on the final week of the league (November 14 & 17).
Schedules will be available by Friday, October 7. Controllers are provided but you may bring your own controllers.
Space is limited to the first 8 students per participating school. Once registration is full, you will need to turn in your form/payment to your school’s office to be added to a waitlist in case there is space available with another school.
Registration will be available online from September 19 - September 30 at 5 p.m.
Make all checks payable to Kalamazoo City Treasurer.
Youth from 6th to 8th grade
