Individual Registration: Each player is required to register for the league individually; they can register and assign themselves to a specific team. This will ensure quality control, competitive balance, and liability coverage for the facility.

Check-In: Prior to the start of each league game, players will be required to check-in with the field marshal. Players who are not rostered will have to register or pay the substitution fee at the front desk. This ensures quality control, competitive balance, and liability coverage for the facility.

Behavior: Any disrespectful, disruptive or dangerous behavior will not be tolerated, and a player, team, coach or fan may be removed from the center per the discretion of the officials, MOD or Sports Director. All incidents will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Substitution/Drop-In Policy: A substitute is allowed for any regular season league game. This is a great chance to bring out friends who would like to try out the league but do not want to pay the full registration fee, or players who are only in town for a night or two. The fee is $10 per game. A substitute may play on any team, but may not play on two different teams in the same league on the same night.

  • No substitutes will be allowed during post-season play.
  • Up to three (3) drop-ins will count towards a league fee.
  • If a player fails to pay, either the full registration or sub fee, the Sports Director has the right to forfeit that team’s game.

Champions: Top team will receive championship shirts and $10 off the next league!
