FAQ

  • Are there any fees associated with registering?
    All fees have been waived.
  • What if I’m a free agent?
    Free agents must go through the same application process and select that they do not have a team.  Free agents will remain available for pick-up by team captains throughout the season.
  • How many people can I have on my team?
    1. Teams need at least 10 players to be accepted, and can have at most 15 players on a roster, but a team can only have 12 active players per day for regionals and 14 active players for playoffs (not per game)
    2. Once a team is accepted, it cannot remove any of its players, but it can add additional players until April 1, 2019
  • Can teams make roster changes?
    1. After regionals, a team is allowed to add up to four (4) players provided that player has not played against the team in an elimination game.
    2. After the round of 16, if a team has not used all four (4) moves, they are allowed one (1) move for the remainder of the Tournament including the final game. To avoid confusion, if a team elects to add zero (0) players in between regionals and Round 1 (the round of 16), it would only have one (1) move for the remainder of the Tournament.
    3. If a team elects to add a player and already has 15 players on its roster, it must remove (cut) one player from its roster.
  • Can I switch teams?
    If a team is eliminated from the tournament, the players from the eliminated team can be added to an active team’s roster so long as the team adding did not eliminate that team’s players.
