HOW DO I REGISTER?
Registration takes place online. We strongly suggest that you do not wait to register, we work on a 1st come 1st served basis. Don't worry, tryouts are not part of our social organizations philosophy; welcome aboard and get ready to have some fun!

There are several registration options based on your preferences.

  • Free Agents: Are you new to town or just want to check us out? We have lots of people who join solo. All you need to do is register as a free agent and we will place you on a team when we form them. No tryouts, interviews or million dollar contracts; just plain old FUN!
     
  • Small group of friends:  Do you want to join with some friends and all be on the same team? Use this option during the registration process & create a group. If someone has already setup the group, just go ahead and select that group name during the registration process
     
  • Team Captain: If you are creating a full team (usually 15 or more co-ed players), register as a captain. Once you register you can use our automated player invite option to send your friends all the info they need to register
     
  • Team Player: If someone already setup the team you are supposed to be on all you need to do is select this option during registration to join that team

HOW MANY PLAYERS ON A TEAM?
The number of players on a team may vary from season to season and sports to sport. Typically, kickball teams range in size from about 17 -21 since teams field 11 players defensively; you will want to make sure that you have substitutes available. If you need help with extra players, we always have free agents looking to join a team!

CAN I FIELD AN ALL-MALE TEAM?
We are an adult co-ed organization.

WHAT IF MY TEAM ISN'T SUPER COMPETITIVE?
We want everyone to participate together and understand that teams have different skill levels. We don't think your sports skills should dictate where you socialize. However, we do make the schedule so more competitive teams play do not square off against less competitive teams often. Captains will choose their skill level when setting up their teams and we make the schedule based on that selection and other factors. This way, no matter your skill level, all players socialize on the same field!

WHAT IF YOU DON'T HAVE A LEAGUE IN MY CITY?
If you are interested or know someone who is interested in starting a league, contact us for more information

TEAM CAPTAINS RESPONSIBILITIES:
Being a team captain is a voluntary position and we greatly appreciate your assistance. Fortunately being a captain doesn't require a lot of additional work but the team does rely on you so if you do not have the time or desire to be one please let us know.

Responsibilities and tasks include.....

Check your email and respond to player questions or refer them back to the league manager for assistance.

Email your team a few days before game day and remind the players what time and what field your game is on. Ask who will not be at the game so that you can prepare your lineup prior to the game. Note:, all players are entitled to an equal amount of playing time, you cannot bench a player, please discuss any issues with your league manager.

Make arrangements for your referees to be at the scheduled field for ref duty & on time.

Work with new players on basic strategies and rules of the game (see online rule book).

Keep your players from acting in an unsportsmanlike manor. Only captains can discuss disputed calls with a referee. Yelling, name calling and jumping up and down like a 3 year old is strictly prohibited. This is a social sports league and good behavior is not only expected it is required.
