On behalf of the TSL Board, we want to thank you for another great year of TSL football.  It has been a while (pre-COVID) since we've been able to throw one of our annual Banquets, but we're bringing it back this year so hopefully you and your teams are able to attend! For those of you who have never been to a TSL Banquet, think of this like a big holiday party or wedding with an open bar and dancefloor.  Although there will be an awards presentation for our Fall 2022 football season (all Awards Nominees are listed below), there will still be plenty of time to light up the dancefloor, so we encourage you to bring friends and significant others, they will all have a good time.

 

With that said, here is all of the information you need to know.  Please forward this link on to your teammates and ask them to register AND send payment by November 24th at the latest (we cannot increase headcount after that date).  Thank you.

Updated 11/10/22

 

Registration for the TSL Winter 2023 season is officially OPEN and is expected to fill up quickly, so we wanted to provide an update on where we stand with timing, venue, cost, format and next steps.

 

Dates: January 7th, 14th, 21nd, 28th, February 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th (regular season), March 4th and 11th (playoffs).  Like the past two years of Winter sessions, we want to highlight the possibility that  a Bills playoff game may be scheduled on Jan 14th and/or Jan 21nd.  If that happens we will do our best to make up the games, as we do NOT intend to run our League the same day as a Bills playoff game.  Whether this takes the form of weeknight makeup games, a late night doubleheader, or pushing the season back a week, we don't know and cannot solve for at this point in time.  If it comes up, we'll address as best as we can and keep captains informed as soon as decisions are made.

 

Venue:  Sportsplex @ 90 Ridge Road, North Tonawanda NY 14120.  The downstairs bar will be open this season and there are two golf simulators on site upstairs as well.  Games will likely start sometime between 6:45 and 10:45 (last game of the night ending at 11:45).

 

Cost:  $1,085 per team plus $25 per game for ref fees (payable to the refs right before games start).  Registration payments can be made via Venmo to @jeff-krol.  If you don't have Venmo (or a teammate willing to Venmo on your behalf) then please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will make other arrangements.

 

Format:  Our goal this season is ideally to have two divisions to separate "Competitive" teams and "Recreational" teams (with their own separate playoffs), but that is subject to having enough teams sign up for both.  If registration is heavily skewed one way or the other and we can't make two relatively even divisions (or a bunch of "Competitive" teams sign up for the Recreational division to try to win an easy championship), we reserve the right to combine it into one large division like we did last year.

 

Last Winter we reviewed every roster with a "points system" to ensure people weren't submitting stacked teams for that session (and it worked by the way... seven teams went into the playoffs with a real chance to win the whole thing).  This session we're going to be a bit more relaxed on personnel restrictions for the "Competitive" teams and let people submit whatever rosters they want, within reason... but we DO reserve the right to break up any "super teams" that form if we think it will ruin the competitive balance.  Football leagues are better when one team isn't all but certain to win the championship, so please understand that we're just trying to keep this fun and competitive for everyone.  "Competitive" teams should be D1-D2 quality in our outdoor sessions, and "Recreational" teams should be D3-D6 quality.

 

Other Rules/Regulations:

  • No one will be allowed to play on two rosters, even if one is in the Competitive division and one is Recreational.  We want this League to be available to as many people as possible, and giving two roster spots to the same person runs contrary to that goal.
  • Sub requests must go through sublist@toppersports.com.  If something happens and you're short-handed on game day, one of the League staff on site will appoint you a sub, but it will likely be someone of SIGNIFICANTLY worse quality than the player you're missing so don't count on showing up and grabbing a star athlete at the last minute.
  • We'd like to think COVID restrictions are a thing of the past, but the past couple winters have been unpredictable with indoor regulations.  As of now we are not anticipating any special requirements (masks, limitations on friends on the sidelines etc) but if anything changes we will let you know.

 

Next Steps:  If you plan to register a team for Winter session, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with the following information:

 

  1. Your name
  2. Your team name (you can always change this later before the season starts if you think of something better)
  3. Your intended division (either Competitive or Recreational) assuming we get enough teams in both groups to have two divisions
  4. Your roster (you can make changes up to December 31st if needed, but not changes that would turn a "Recreational" team into a "Competitive" team, so please don't try to stack your roster at the last minute)
  5. Confirmation that your payment has either been sent already, or will be soon.  We need at least half of the team fee ($542) to hold your spot, with the rest due before December 31st.  Participation will be limited to the first 10 teams that register and make payment, so please don't delay and try to register in mid December.

 

If you have any questions please feel free to reach out and ask.

Fall 2022 Registration Information 

Captains/Players, Friends of the TSL,

 

It’s time to start thinking about Fall 2022 football!!  With that said, registration for our upcoming Fall 2022 season is now open.  We have room for 48 teams across 6 divisions.   To register, please visit the Team Registration page on the website. 

 

Please note, new for this season, no division will have more than 10 teams, and no division will have less than 6 teams. What does that mean?  If you register for D3 and it already has 10 teams, you will either be placed in D2 or D4 depending on who’s on your roster and other teams that have signed up in those divisions. If D1 or D6 do not have 6 teams signed up, they will be merged with D2 and D5 respectively.

 

Please note, Payment will be due in Full upon registration

  • Team Fee: $450
  • Forfeit Fee: $50 (new teams only)
  • Total Amount due: $500 for new teams, $450 for returning teams
  • (note- if you did not forfeit a game in the previous season, the $50 forfeit fee will be reimbursed at the end of the season, or carried over to your next season registration)

 

Teams will be limited to only 2 schedule requests this season.  (game times will be 10am, 11am, noon, 1pm, 2pm and 3pm) Early games are considered 10-12, late games are considered 1-3pm.  After you have registered and paid in full, you may then send in your schedule requests.  Please do so in a separate email with your team name and division in the subject line

 

Please only register when you have your complete roster set(we understand that you may add/subtract, but don’t keep someone off your roster on purpose so that you are placed in a lower division, only to add that player once divisions are set, we don’t have time for roster games) Rosters are limited to 14 players.

 

Payments can be made 2 ways:

  1. Via Paypal to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
  2. Via Venmo Patrick-McGovern-8

 

The season will start August 20th, 2022. There will be 8 weeks in the regular season.  This is subject to change slightly depending on how many teams sign up and the weather.  We will also be limited to 4 playing fields this season due to construction at The Angry Buffalo.

 

Here are the dates for the season:

  • week 1 Aug 20th
  • week 2 Aug 27th
  • week 3 Sept 3rd
  • week 4 Sept 10th
  • week 5 Sept 17th
  • week 6 Sept 24th
  • week 7 Oct 1st
  • week 8 Oct 8th
  • Playoffs Oct 15th
  • Semi’s & Finals Oct 22nd

 

 

Players playing on Multiple Teams:

Our primary concern is players playing on multiple teams, it’s becoming a huge issue and we can go a couple different ways on this.  People love Saturday football, and hanging out all day, and let’s face it, we’ve been couped up for a while, so we’re kind of leaning towards allowing more of this so long as rosters are handed in ahead of time so that teams can be in their proper divisions.  But I also want to keep the competitiveness of our divisions in mind.

 

We have to have some rules/limitations such as the following:

  1. If a player can’t play, another player cannot sub in for him/her.  For example, Aaron plays for When Dove Cries, but can’t play for Tox at 2pm, Tox cannot ask for Drew to fill in, they can get a sub off the sublist if needed, but that’s it.
  2. Players who play on one team cannot get added to a roster once the season is started. For example, Tox registers for D5, season starts, then they try and add Aaron to their roster, this won’t be allowed. Once the season begins rosters are set.
  3. A player cannot play on two teams within the same division.
  4. Topper Sports reserves the right to move a team from one division into another division more suitable of their competitiveness.
  5. Females that play on all gender team as well as a primary team may not play on a second team.
  6. Do not take advantage of this, do not try to stack teams in lower divisions, and no more than 2 players from D1 and D2 teams can be on lower team rosters(think winter session rosters)
  7. This is only in effect for THIS season and we reserve the right to change it next season.
  8. Unfortunately, the league cannot make schedule adjustments (honor schedule requests) based on players playing on multiple teams
  9. Any player playing on 2 teams must also make themselves available to ref each week.  There is a ref sign up sheet on the website https://www.toppersports.com/index.php/ref-signup

 

 

 

An even bigger concern though is come playoffs, there are going to be conflicts. I have some flexibility with the schedule round 1, but the semi’s and finals are locked in. If a player plays on two teams, and those two teams happen to play at the same time, said player cannot jump from team to team, they can only choose to play for one of their teams, even if one game ends earlier they cannot go and play for their second team.
