About Astoria Social:

Astoria Social aims to bring Astorians together through social activities and community gatherings.  Through our sports leagues, we provide a way for players of all skill levels to engage in athletics in a safe and organized structure.  Additionally, the Ladies of Astoria Social aims to bring together the women who participate in the many facets of Astoria Social. Our goal is to give back to the community through woman-centric charities and to foster friendship through shared interests and activities.
