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.

CORPORATIONS

Thinking your company would be interested in sponsoring a whole team? We now have an easy registration option for this on the registration page. These two videos will help you out.

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 REQUIRMENTS

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 16 players on the team.   Teams are required to have a minimum of 16 registered players or a maximum of 26 players.   At least 6 players of each gender must be on the team as well.   Being a league that sells out regularly, reaching a confirmed team status is strictly on a first come first serve basis.   So to guarantee a spot in the league, make sure your teammates get registered ASAP!   Again, if you are not accepted into the league, you will be refunded back.
 

Field Location: Grosvenor Center 5701 Grosvenor Lane, Bethesda, MD 20814
