CAPTAINS
Are you a captain or aspiring captain wondering about how to start a team? First, you want to register yourself, then start a "friend group". Your friend group will become a team after registration closes. Here are some videos to guide you through the process.
  1st, Do this --> How to register yourself
   2nd, Now this --> How to create a friend group

CORPORATIONS
Thinking your company would be interested in sponsoring a whole or partial team? We have an easy registration option for this situation on the registration page. Check out kickball.com/corporate-teams. These 2 videos will help out.
  1st, Do this --> How to Register a group
   2nd, Now this --> How to create a friend group

FREE AGENT INDIVIDUALS AND SMALL GROUPS
Plan on going solo or joining with one or two friends?   Perfect.  That's actually how a lot of teams are formed. Nearly 50 percent of the players in the league first started as free agents or small friend groups.  That's how easy it is to meet new people and make new friends. So don't worry - go ahead and sign up and we'll be sure to check with you to put you on a team that's a perfect fit for you. And, if we can't get you on a team, you get your money back - guaranteed!

TEAM STATUS AND ROSTER REQUIREMENTS
Every registered team starts off as a "Friend Group." A friend group does not reach official team status until they have at least 6 players of each gender registered or at least 14-16 players on the team. Teams are required to have a minimum of 14 (7M/7F) registered players or a maximum of 26 players. The league has field limitations, so reaching a confirmed team status is strictly on a first come first serve basis. To guarantee a spot in the league, make sure your teammates get registered ASAP! 

If you have any other questions see the Registration FAQ or contact this season's Community Coordinator.
