A collection of gay and lesbian sports teams and leagues practiced their off-the-field skills — translation: knocking back beers — as they worked to attract new athletes during a recruitment drive last Sunday.

The Atlanta Gay Sports Alliance hosted the event at Frogs Cantina in Midtown as a way to pitch its eight member organizations and to sign up new jocks and jockettes.

imageSome of the groups — Atlanta Bucks Rugby Football Club and Hotlanta Softball League — start fall seasons soon, while other groups — Atlanta Rainbow Trout, Front Runners Atlanta, Hotlanta Soccer Association, Atlanta Team Tennis Association and Hotlanta Volleyball Association — hold regular activities. AGSA’s other member group, the National Flag Football League of Atlanta, recently ended its spring and summer season.
