Registration for each season happens the month prior and is available online. Generally, it fills up very quickly (like, in a matter of minutes), so pay attention to the announcements (if you have not done so already, sign up for the Mailing List to stay in the know!).
There are no tryouts.
The league has space for 180 players. These are broken down into 18 teams, 10 people per team.
No. Everyone gets randomly assigned to a team (it keeps the competition and the social aspect balanced) — and it’s all part of the fun, too. But everyone plays on Monday nights, so you end up seeing and hanging with your friends anyway and winging balls at them, which is more fun.
Each season is approximately 11 weeks long. Ten weeks of regular season play, and one final tournament. Spring is usually March through May, and Fall is September through early December.
On Monday nights from 7-9:30pm (any variations to this would be announced in advance).

$140/person (subject to change)
You get a six-month membership to the New York City Parks and Recreation, a t-shirt, 11-weeks of dodgeball bliss, and drink specials every Monday night.
On friday nights (and sometimes on Mondays in the off-season), lots of folks in the league get together for open plays. They are a great way to break the ice, meet people in the league, and practice your skills in a more casual environment.
In addition to our Monday night, post-play fun outings during regular season, we also throw a Kick-off Party and an End of the Season Party (with an extra party or two thrown in somewhere).
Yes, but you must send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org by 3:00 PM the day of play (this is not a negotiable time — 3:01 PM is too late!). Space is limited and guest requests will be permitted on a first-come-first-serve basis. Once confirmed, they will be added to the guest list and will need to check in at the front desk of the gym. Please note, guests are not allowed to participate due to membership and liability issues.
