Spring and Summer Leagues

Spring and Summer league registration is open!

Spring and Summer 2024 Leagues

Registration Deadline:

Tuesday, April 30, 2024

Registration types:

Full Team - a group of people looking to play that have enough people to make a full team. A captain is selected among the group of people and thus builds their own roster and decides how many players they want to have on their roster. Recreation staff do not add any other players to this team's roster. Each person on the team is required to fill out their own registration form and make their own payment.

Free Agent - someone looking to play but does not have enough players to make a full team. These players can request to play with another person on the registration form! Recreation staff manage the size and composition of this team's roster and will always attempt to build ideal team rosters with an adequate number of people. However, teams could include more or less players than the ideal roster size, depending on the total registrations received in that particular sport or division.
