Draft Rules

This is the first time we will be offering a draft style team selection for those that are interested. Here is how it will work:

  • Everyone who wishes to participate in the draft will sign up as an individual through the RI Riptide website.
  • When selecting a team, choose 'DRAFT Group' from the drop down menu.
  • Within a few days, a WAKA representative will e-mail you a brief web survey to gather some information from you. This information will be included in a packet provided to the captains prior to the draft.
    • If you would like to volunteer to be a captain, please let Commissioner Moore know. The Commish will be selecting captains from available volunteers by June 5th. (Please refer to the Captains Responsibilities FAQ for more info)
    • NOTE: To be eligible to captain a team, you must be available to attend the Draft Party/Meet N Greet to select their team.
  • The deadline for registration for players who wish to participate in the draft is July1st.
  • The Commish will take the total number of players who signed up and determine how many teams the draft league will be able to support. The numbers may vary, but we expect that each draft team will have rosters between 14-18 players with no less than 6-7 players of both sexes on the roster.
  • The captain will select a team name and color prior to the draft.
  • RI Riptide will host a meet n greet / draft party (location: TBD). The captains will take turns selecting their teams from the available player pool.
    • The draft order will be determined by pulling the team names randomly out of a hat.
    • The draft will 'snake' in order, with the order reversing every other round.
    • The players chosen will be announced live at the bar!
