The top 8 teams in each division will make playoffs, and the exact playoff structure/schedule will be announced at a later date.
 
How To Register a Team
Please fill out the link below to register your team:
 
 
We ask that you please only register when you have your complete roster more or less set.  We understand that you may add/subtract players before the season starts, 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 as we're putting divisions together.  As always, the League reserves the right to move teams to a different division as needed to preserve competitive balance.
 
Players are only allowed to play on ONE team this session, unless they meet one of the exceptions we established last year (which we spell out again in detail later in this email) so please don't submit an illegal roster without reading all the info below.
 
The roster limit is 15 players per team, and there will be no subs allowed for playoffs so please make sure you have enough people on your roster that you aren't playing shorthanded on October 19th and October 26th!
 
The full balance of $450 will be due upon registration, with an additional $50 forfeit fee required for new teams ($500 total for new teams).  The forfeit fee will be carried over to the next season if you don't forfeit a game (or reimbursed at the end of the season if you'd like).
 
Payment can be made via Venmo to @jeff-krol.  If captains don't have Venmo, and none of the players on their team can Venmo on their behalf, please email us and we will find other arrangements for payment.
 
Team registration closes on August 10th -- please don't wait until the last minute if you want to enter a team!
 
How to Register for Breakfast Club
Breakfast Club games will be held at 9 am every week from August 31st to October 26th.  To register, simply fill out the form below and venmo $50 to @jeff-krol (or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we'll make other payment arrangements if you don't have Venmo):
 
 
The Breakfast Club draft will be held on (or around) August 10th, so the deadline to register for Breakfast Club is Friday, August 9th.  We can NOT add people after August 9th so please don't wait until the last second to sign up!
 
How to Register as a Free Agent
Many players have reached out to us over the past few sessions wanting to play in the Main League (ie not Breakfast Club) but without a team.  If you'd like us to try to set you up with a team looking for players, please fill out the link below and we'll do our best to find you a match!
 
 
 
Terms & Conditions
  1. All players must be 21 years of age and over to play.
  2. All players must have a signed waiver on file for this year (if you signed one for Spring 2024 or Winter 2024, you don't need to fill out another) so please fill this out yourself if you need to, and then send it to the players on your team to fill out as well.  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1NqaQgYi1a2Sr-vlV_Nab-G7gIJhM3fE0O_xWzK0s5P0/edit
  3. The Rules will be reviewed over the next month or so, posted to our website, and emailed to captains before the start of the season.  
  4. The sub list will be provided to captains prior to the first week instructing them which players are eligible to sub in their division throughout the season. Details on when sub requests are due (and what happens if a request is received after that deadline) will be provided in that same email to captains before the season starts.  But you will NOT be allowed to request subs for the playoff weeks of October 19th or October 26th.
  5. If you must forfeit a game, your team is responsible for notifying the League before 5 pm on the Friday before your game.  Any forfeit after that time will incur a $50 forfeit fee.
 
Playing on Multiple Teams
Last year we announced that the League would be strongly pulling back on allowing people to play on more than one team.  The logic behind this is that teams stop bringing new people into the League when we allow them to recruit from other teams instead (why would you ask a new person to play when you can just recruit a great player from another team instead?).  Over time this leads to the League stagnating with fewer and fewer people playing on multiple teams.  Our goal is to grow the TSL (or at least add people at the same rate that our older players retire!) and that can only be done by forcing teams to bring in new people when they need athletes to fill out their rosters.  Players are only allowed to play on ONE team, unless they meet one of the following exceptions:
 
  • Anyone is allowed (and encouraged) to play on a Breakfast Club team, which doesn't count as a "second" team
  • Anyone who reffed four or more games LAST Spring session will be allowed to play on a second team this session.  Yes, we already know who meets this criteria, and no, you cannot "promise" to ref games THIS session to be eligible for a second team this Fall (though you can ref four games this session to become eligible for next Spring).  The League is not possible without committed refs, so we're willing to make an exception for them.
  • Anyone who wants to play on a gender team will be allowed to - we strongly encourage gender teams, so they don't count as a "second" team
  • If a person who already plays on one team wants to start a brand new team that will bring new people into the League, we may make an exception for these situations on a case by case basis.  This isn't an exact science, so if you have questions about what will/won't be accepted as a "new team" just reply to this email and ask!
  • Topper will be allowed a special exception to the "playing on two teams" rule for HIS team.  Yes, the founder and owner of this League for over a decade gets special treatment!
 
We understand that this policy will negatively impact some players who are forced to decide between two teams... but this was communicated exhaustively via emails, website posts, podcasts, etc.  In other words, ignorance of this rule is not grounds for an exception, and everyone had the chance to ref if they really wanted to keep playing on two teams.

And finally, this is the last chance to sign up for the TSL Wine Tournament before it fills up!
 
 
Games will be held at Black Willow Winery (5565 W Lake Rd, Burt NY, 14028) on Saturday August 3rd
 
There will be room for 16 teams across four divisions, including one competitive (morning) and three recreational (one in the morning, two in the afternoon), and every team will play three games. We want everyone to have fun playing games against people at similar skill levels, so please do not try to enter a stacked roster for a lower division.
 
The form below will ask you for your roster, which you can edit via email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. up until July 27th. We understand that you may add/subtract players before that date, 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 as we're putting divisions together.  We list guidelines below of what we THINK the quality of each division will be compared to outdoor sessions, but until we have 16 teams registered, we won't know exactly how good each division will be. As always, the League reserves the right to move teams to a different division as needed to preserve competitive balance.
 
 
There is no maximum roster size, and no sublist, so please ensure that you build a roster with the right number of people to get through three games. Historically the wine tournament is always very hot, so make sure you have enough extra bodies that players on your team can get some rest.
 
Each player is only allowed to play on one team, so please ensure your roster understands that they won't be playing on other teams in this tournament. We have limited space and are trying to open this up to more players/teams to experience.
 
The tournament costs $250 per team, made payable via Venmo to @jeff-krol.  If captains don't have Venmo, they need to have one of their players venmo on their behalf. This includes ref fees (ie we will pay the refs) so there are no additional charges for that.
 
Other tournament details on food/drink etc will be provided to registered captains as the date gets closer, we are still working some of those out.
