MEN'S BASKETBALL LEAGUE
Seeding tiebreakers were decided by head-to-head matchups where possible, but in the cases of 3 or 4-way ties, the tiebreaker used was the strength of resume based on opponents' cumulative records.
Participants must be 18 years old on or before March 4th (date of first game). You do not need to be a member or regular attendee in order to play in the league. Games will take place each Monday evening beginning Monday, March 4th and concluding on Monday, May 6th (10 game league with playoffs to follow). The playoffs will start on Monday, May 13th with the first round (two games at 6:00, 7:00, 8:00 and 9:00 pm). The quarter-finals will take place the next evening on Tuesday, May 14th (two games at 7:00 & 8:00 pm) and the semi-finals are scheduled for Monday, May 20th (one game at 7:00 pm and one game at 8:00 pm). The Championship game will take place on Tuesday, May 21st at 7:00 pm. Game times during the regular season will be at 6:00 pm, 7:00 pm, 8:00 pm AND 9:00 pm.
If you wish to register an entire team to play together, please send an email to Peter Bonner at email@example.com with a list of all the names of the men who will be on that team and he will make sure they are placed on the same team. You may also register as an individual and be placed onto one of the teams. PLEASE NOTE: we only have enough space in the league for a maximum of 16 teams. We will give priority to those teams that played in our fall 2018 league and then if any of those teams do not return, only then will we open registration up to new teams. Therefore, if you are a new team considering registering your team for the spring 2019 league you MUST first email Peter Bonner at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to determine whether or not a spot exists.
UPDATE AS OF 2/19: we are currently at a maximum 16 teams registered for this season, so we will not be able to admit any additional teams. If you would like to get on a wait list please email Peter Bonner at email@example.com to let him know that you would like to enter a team if a spot opens up.
The registration fee for this league is $85 ($20 will be refunded when you return your jersey at the end of the season). Players will be provided with a jersey to use for the season only. While we will have paid referees calling the games, we expect good sportsmanship. The purpose for the league is to allow men the ability to play basketball, build friendships, and grow spiritually. Any fighting between players will result in an permanent ban from the league. We have zero tolerance for fighting. Please make sure that you read through our league rules (the link is found below) BEFORE you register so that you have a clear understanding of all our rules. Registration for the spring league closes at 11:59 pm on Thursday, February 28th.
Finally, please note prior to registering for the league that there will be a devotional presented each week. Attending the weekly devotionals is a REQUIREMENT of the league in order to participate and play in the league.
