* Depending on the number of teams that signup for the  50+ and Pond Divisions, consolidations of divisions may need to occur. Every effort will be made to place teams in appropriate groupings based on your team level of play. We will make those final determinations based on your responses on the registration form, and in consultation with your team captain.

Levels of Play are defined as follows:

Pond – recreational player, no formal league or school experience

League – regular league play

HS – advanced player – played on High School Team

College+ – highly advanced player – played on college or semi-pro team

** Individuals are also welcome to register and will be placed on a team based on your “level of play”
