News

Over the last few years registrations for Fall Team League have grown tremendously. In 2012 there were 43 teams, in 2013 there were 45, and in 2014 there were 48 and 4 more on the waitlist. Last fall, there were 53! This year we have room for 54 teams.

In order to ensure that teams have fair access to register, we now require prompt payment in order to secure your team's bid.  This fall, teams must submit payment in full within 3 days of completing the online registration.  After 3 days, unpaid teams will be moved to the waitlist.  Those teams may be re-admitted and given an additional 3 days to pay pending approval from the League Coordinators.

So, please submit payment soon after completing the registration form.

If you get bumped to the waitlist, email the League Coordinators about getting re-accepted.
