Leagues are open to anyone that is 18 years of age and older (you don’t have to be a student to participate in our leagues!).

Fall Leagues Schedule at a Glance

Early Bird Registration Deadline:

September 20, 2022

Registration Deadline:

September 27, 2022

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.

  • A player can sub a maximum of two games in the season.
  • Subs will be charged a $8 drop-in fee to play in the game that week.
  • If a sub wishes to join a team for more than two games, they are no longer considered a sub, they are considered a Replacement Player. These players will pay a pro-rated league fee (the amount will depend on what week they join the team in the season).
