For anyone who plays sports, odds are fall is a busy time for you. Whether you’re a coach, athlete or parent, you’re always at a practice, scrimmage or game during the Autumn months. If you play fall sports, you need to come spend some time at our sports complex. Here are 4 reasons why Rocky Top Sports World is the best place for fall sports:
1. Perfect Weather
The fall weather in East Tennessee is incredible! With cool mornings and evenings, with warm days in the middle, it’s the perfect time to come for a visit. In September, expect highs in the 80’s with lows in the upper 50’s at night. Things start to cool down in October, with highs normally ranging in the low 70’s and low temperatures in the 40’s. After Halloween, approaching Thanksgiving in November, you’ll see perfect sports weather, with highs in the 60’s and cool nights in the 30’s. You may see a little more rain starting in October and normally drying out by mid-November.
2. Tons of Fall Events
At Rocky Top Sports World, we host tons of Autumn events for various fall sports. If you coach or have a child in travel league football, sign them up for October’s D1 Nation. We also offer various basketball events for all age groups, including Rumble at the Rock and Middle School Mania. Does your son play soccer? Sign him and his team up for the Southeast Classic at Gatlinburg. Lacrosse coaches, make sure to get your team registered for the Halloween weekend tournament, Battle in the Burg.
3. Beautiful Views
Our sports complex is located at the base of the Great Smoky Mountains and comes with gorgeous views all year round. However, the views are never more beautiful than when fall arrives. Beginning in the higher elevations first, you’ll see bright reds, yellows and oranges begin to coat the mountains. By mid-November, most of the mountains will be lit up with these outstanding colors, creating a breathtaking backdrop to all your games. Make sure to get a team photo in front of these views at your next game!
4. Seasonal Post-Game Activities
The Smokies are filled with fun seasonal activities that your whole team will love. After you take home victory in your tournament, head down to Dollywood in Pigeon Forge and spend some time exploring their Harvest Festival, complete with fall shows, food and even massive pumpkin displays. If your team is all 21 and over, check out Oktoberfest in Ober Gatlinburg and enjoy some post-game brews. Anakeesta also offers their own fall festival, Autumn at Anakeesta. Whatever activities you decide to check out, we know you’ll have a blast exploring all the Smokies have to offer during fall!
Now that you know why Rocky Top Sports World is the best place for fall sports, you can begin deciding which of the upcoming Autumn tournaments and games your team should attend.
