Coed Standard Leagues:  Certain rules are altered based upon the gender of participants (i.e., scores involving females may be worth additional points, restrictions may exist based upon gender, etc.). An equal number of males and females is required to play.

Coed Open Leagues:  All scoring rules mirror those in single-gender sports. An equal number of males and females is required to play.

Recreational Leagues:  Each team will be scheduled in a 4-team league with 5 round-robin games.

Competitive Leagues:  Each team will be scheduled in a 4-team league with 3 regular season games and teams who are eligible will be scheduled for at least one playoff game.

*Note: In the event that a division does not fill and no games are scheduled and/or played, the teams in that division may have their team fee refunded to them by contacting the Competitive Sports Office.

Reinstatement Information for Each League

If a team in a recreational or coed league is charged with two forfeits (including the preseason captain's meeting), they must pay a reinstatement fee, which is 50% of their original registration fee for the sport they're playing. Recreational teams must pay by 4 p.m. the day of their next scheduled game to continue to participate in the league. Competitive teams must pay their reinstatement fee by 4 p.m. the day of their playoff bracket selection. NOTE: this reinstatement fee is non-refundable.
