    Whether you are a former college athlete or a casual player, we have a league for you. We have the C League for those teams that are playing just for fun, aging, or not very experienced. The B League is for moderately competitive or skilled teams looking to compete with those of similar skill levels. The A League is for those teams that are looking for high quality games and want to win. We have a Women's League that plays on Tuesdays and Thursdays also. These adult leagues are to exercise a love for a lifelong activity and we expect that behaviors will be in check. Captains must sign a stewardship promise for their team.
