2013 Summer League Registration

Summer League Registration begins March 15 at 9:00 AM

Register Now!

Spots in summer leagues have traditionally been granted on a first come basis. Since we have moved to online registration and payment, the window for filling up (for men) has shrunk each year. In 2011 we were amazed that the league filled up in less than 12 hours. In 2012, everyone outdid themselves and the server was effectively under a distributed denial of service attack because of all the registration attempts. The server was reconfigured to handle the load and both leagues filled for men in under 90 minutes.

The board feels that this short of a window doesn't give a fair chance for everyone to register, especially those whose job keeps them away from a computer between 9:00am and 10:30am. And that window would surely be shorter this year.

To combat this, we are implementing a weighted lottery system for 2013 Summer Leagues. The lottery will work as follows:

  • Open registration lasts 4 days. If the league is not filled for a particular gender after 4 days (11:59:59pm March 18), everyone that has registered for that gender will get in the league and remaining spots will be granted on a first come basis,
  • If we hold a lottery, each player registered (which means payment received) will be granted a weighted chance depending on when they registered. Everyone who registers on the same day will have the same chance. Players who register on each subsequent day will have lower odds in the lottery,
  • You may still register for multiple leagues and the lotter is independent for each league
  • Registering multiple times for the same league will disqualify you from the league and no refund will be issued.
  • We will over book the lottery to maintain a waiting list of people that will be automatically slotted in if a player drops out prior to the draft or if we get enough women to expand the league.
  • Players not selected via the lottery will be refunded promptly.
  • Carpools will not change your lottery chances in either direction.

Men's Hat League Returns

Rebooting the Men's league into a hat league last year had a great launch. We'll be bringing the league back again this year, with expectations that we'll be able to expand it. The league runs for a shorter, 10 week season beginning in early June.
