Louisville Sports Commission Announces Date for 2018 Louisville Corporate Games

 

Louisville, Ky. – November 30, 2017 – The Louisville Sports Commission (LSC) today announced that its second annual Louisville Corporate Games will be held Saturday, June 2, 2018, from 8:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. The event will once again be on the Kentucky Country Day School campus.

The Corporate Games is a community-wide event that brings together employees from Louisville and Southern Indiana-area businesses and organizations for a day of friendly competition and employee camaraderie. It is comprised of 15 events, some highly competitive and others geared toward participation to get people moving, as well as activities that foster company spirit.

“The Corporate Games are like field day for adults,” said LSC President and CEO Karl Schmitt, Jr. “The Corporate Games are a fun, first-class event where businesses can put their corporate health and wellness programs into action and reward their employees for their efforts.  And the Corporate Games are structured to encourage employee camaraderie in the spirit of competition.”

Participation is open to full and part-time employees – and their spouses or partners – of companies located in Bullitt, Henry, Jefferson, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties in Kentucky and Clark, Floyd, Harrison, Scott and Washington counties in Southern Indiana. Each company’s team roster can include as few as 15 and up to 100 participants; participation will be limited to the first 50 companies to formally submit a registration form.

Companies earn points in each event that are totaled to produce a winner in each of the four divisions based on company size. Participatory Events produce points through participation and accuracy. Competitive Events match up company teams against each other resulting in first, second and third place points. Additional points will be awarded to companies taking part in the Good Sports activities.

The inaugural Corporate Games event was held on June 3, 2017, with 22 companies competing in four divisions. Horseshoe Southern Indiana won the Division One category; WDRB and Republic Bank tied in the Division Two category; American Commercial Barge Lines won the Division Three category; and Strategic Marketing won the Division Four category as well as the Overall Grand Championship.
