*While competitive, this is a casual/fun league following the rules in the link at the bottom of the page. These leagues are recommended for those still honing their skills and learning setting rules. There are no double hit fouls called in these two leagues.

Weather

Games are ALWAYS ON unless otherwise announced (a little drizzle has never stopped us). Be sure to check your email on game day if it appears that weather may cause a cancellation. Cancellations will be announced at least one and a half hours before the start of the first match.

Subs

You can use a sub if one of your players cannot make it. Caveats: it’s a 1-to-1 subbing, meaning you can only invite other players equal to the same amount missing. There cannot be more subs than there are roster players on a given night. NO SUBS IN PLAYOFFS.
