SportsBall! is a new, improvised long-form show, created by Emily Shuel and directed by Tony Beeman. It is an improvised comedy telling the inspirational story of an underdog sports team's rise to stardom complete with obstacles to overcome, rivals, , and finding motivation to try again, in the style of movies such as Mighty Ducks, Cool Runnings, and the Rocky movies. No actual sports abilities required!
