When can I register?
Registration for the Spring 2013 season opens on March 11, 2013.
How do I register?
At 10 am on the allotted day, a link will appear at the bottom of this page that says "Register Now". Click on that link to begin.
Next you will have the option of creating a team, joining a team, or signing up as an individual (to be placed on a team later).
Finally fill out the registration form along with your payment information and hit submit. It's that easy.
How do I create a team?
When you select the "Create a Team" option you will be asked to set up a team name and a team password. When your teammates go through registration later, they must use your team name and password. Please send them that information once you have completed your registration. By creating a team, you are designating yourself as team captain.
How do I join a team?
After you click the 'join a team' option, you will be able to select from a list of teams. When you register, enter your team password to join the team created by your captain. You must have the team password in order to join the team. If you do not have the team password check with your captain. If you do not know the people on the team you can't join it, but you can sign up to play as an individual.
How many players can be on a team?
We require that a team have a minimum of 6 players to be official. We do that to make sure teams have enough people to field a roster each week and to avoid forfeits. We do not have a set maximum number of players, but we do strongly recommend a ceiling of 10 players to make sure each person gets enough playing time.
What if I don't have enough people to play on a team?
We reserve a number of team spots in each division for individuals signing up separately. If you are interested in playing bocce but don't have a team, you can sign up as an individual.
If you have a couple of friends who are interested in playing but not a full team, you can all sign up to play as individuals. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org requesting to be placed on the same team after everyone has registered.
All individual registrants will be placed on teams at the close of registration, at which time we will contact the newly formed team with an introduction email. At that time you will select a team name and captain.
What if my team played in one of your leagues before?
All teams must be created from scratch, and will be created on a first come first serve basis once registration opens. There are no carry overs from previous seasons.
What happens if I can't sign up?
If your division fills up, email email@example.com and request to be placed on the waitlist. Sometimes teams may drop out or need to be combined and space may open up. Waitlist spots are not guaranteed, so your best bet is to sign up right when registration opens to get your division of choice.
How much does it cost?
The late registration fee is $75 per player. Major League Bocce members
receive an official t-shirt, enjoy pre- & post-game food and beer specials, as well as free parties, contests, prizes, and exclusive event opportunities throughout the season. Any cancellations made before the close of registration will be subject to a $25 cancellation charge. No cancellations/refunds will be accepted after registration closes.
