Schedules & Scores: Schedules and scores can be found Here.
Registration: Registration opens on October 7 and closes on November 3. However, many divisions fill quickly, so register as soon as possible. Registration is by team only. Individual registration is not supported. Individuals who want to play who are not affiliated with a team can register as a “free agent” and teams seeking players can access this list to add more players. However, we cannot guarantee team placement for free agent players. Captains/Coaches for each team can check the free-agent list if they need more players and contact these players for registration. Register online here.
Free Agent Registration: Individuals may register at any point during the season and are not subject to payment unless picked up by a team. Free agents are not guaranteed team placement. Free agents are added to a free agent list that is only accessible to team coaches. Head coaches may then reach out to free agents to gauge interest in joining their team. Register as a free agent HERE.
Fees: $575 per team.
The maximum roster size is 18; however, to ensure adequate playing time for everyone, rosters between 12 and 16 players is strongly recommended. Teams are only allowed two travel players per team. Teams with five or more developmental and travel players (total) on the roster must play in the upper division of the age group. There are no restrictions on how many developmental players can play at a given time. However, we expect coaches not to abuse this by playing primarily developmental players at the expense of recreational players’ playing time.
