Register

Registration is only available online. Registration opens September 28 (returning teams will receive team registration code from captain). To register for a team, register as a “player” using your code. If you don’t have a code, register as a “free agent.”

See our Financial Policies for information on registration refunds.


Sponsors

Team sponsors are still needed for the winter season! Sponsors help offset the cost of operating the league, which keeps costs down for players. If you know of a business who might be interested in sponsoring, contact Laura.
