  • There will not be trophies or prizing this season, however, leagues will have playoffs, scores, and standings.

  • Each Tier will be confined to a limited number of facilities.  You will play at consistent location(s) throughout the season. Please note, we are unable to accommodate or make facility changes based on individual requests this season. 
  • Players are asked to compete with a “Play On” mentality.  No arguing or disputing calls made during the game.
