At the start of a season, League Managers will use Friend Groups to form teams. Friend groups will be upgraded to teams on a first come, first served basis and added to teams as space allows. A friend group will be upgraded once it contains 16 registered players. Local Charlotte, NC leagues can accommodate a maximum of 12 teams per league.
