Fall Season Captains and Co-Captains

Your 2019 Board of Directors is interested in recruiting, developing and retaining fabulous captains and co-captains. Don't know all the rules? Not confident with positions? Afraid your team social will be a bust? NOT TO WORRY! We'll provide training before the season begins, and support throughout the fall.

If you are interested in serving as a captain during the 2019 fall season, please complete the survey at the link below by the end of the day on Friday, August 9th.
Fall Season Registration

Online registration opens Mon, Aug 5th. Th e fall player fee will be $100 which includes 12 weeks of games (including pre-season). Your registration fee covers field rentals, referees, jerseys, and fall opening and closing parties.

Non-player registration will be available for $25. If you know friends who are interested in joining to help with field setup, managing the down markers (chains), cheerleading on the sidelines, and participating in league events, let them know we're creating a team for them! They will get their own team jerseys and select a team captain to help coordinate activities in the league.

  • We anticipate having 8 or 10 teams. We would like to create teams of 14 players. The first 140 players to register will be guaranteed a spot on a team. Once we reach 140 players we will begin a waitlist. Registration closes on Sun, Aug 18th.

  • The $100 registration fee can be paid in two installments ($50 in August, $50 in September). This season we will issue invoices via email after you submit your online registration.

  • Limited financial assistance will be available for players to reduce the registration fee -- we want everyone who wants to play to join us! This assistance is made possible by the generous support of Harvard Pilgrim Health Care and donations from other league players.
