Fall League registration opens TODAY! Time to start organizing your team, or looking for a team to join. Fall league will run Saturdays beginning September 10th through October 29th (No games on Oct. 1st) - teams will play two games each week, either in the morning or the afternoon, with a tournament on November 5th.

Forming a team - Fall league is a "bring your own team" format. When forming or joining a team, keep the following in mind:

  • Maximum roster size is 23 players. 
  • Minimum number of women on a roster is 8.
  • Make sure you can field a team each week. If you forfeit games on two separate days, you forfeit the tournament. So check player availability and request byes in advance if needed. 

How to sign up - Because Fall league is a “bring your own team” format, you sign up as a complete team. Your captain will register your team and then let you know what you need to do to complete your individual registration. Registration closes September 1st - sign up today!

But I am overjoyed to return to the sport and accept the position of Executive Director - with all of the challenges that such an endeavor entails..."  Read more from Dan here.
