CAPTAINS
Are you a captain or an aspiring captain wondering about how to start a team?

  • First, begin the registration process for yourself.
  • On the registration page start a "friend group" using the "I'd like to make a new group so my friends can play with me" option under Team Preferences.
  • Name it and then tell all your buddies to sign up in that group using the drop down that pops up once they select "My friends have already created a group for the season, let me join them."
    • If you make the group private it will not show up in the drop down menu. You, instead, will find a shareable link to give your friends to register.
  • Your friend group will become a team after registration closes.
