Frequently Asked Questions


REGISTRATION FAQ

Q. How do I join?
A. Once registration is open for the season, the captain of the team registers first under a special link on the registration page. Once your captain has registered they will let the players on that team know its time to visit the league website and register online.  While registering you will insert the team name in the appropriate box.  Once you have registered and paid your name will appear in the Teams/Roster section under your team name on www.kcsportsleagues.com. During registration you will be asked for the nickname and number you would like on your league issued t-shirt. You will receive your shirt the morning of your first game.  Please note that it may take up to six hours after you register for your name to appear online under your team name.
 

Q. Can you help me find a couple players to fill the minimum number of players needed to form a team?
A.  We certainly have a good number of people that are looking for teams and we should be able to help you.

Q. Whats up with the individual registration instead of a flat team registration?

A. We decided from the start that asking the team captains to act as debt collectors isnt fair and takes away most of the fun for them. Any experienced captain would tell you that he/she has been shorted on money from players and we wanted to put an end to that.  If the players take the time to register and pay individually they are more likely to show up and play. This also serves our purpose to issue individual team shirts and knocks out the waiver in one punch.  If you want to pay a single payment for your team we can work something out.

Q. I want to play but dont have a team, can I still register?
A. Each season the league has a "Free Agent" team.  This team is automatically placed in the Novice Division. You would simply click on the registration link and select on the looking for a team option on the registration page. The Free Agent team is basically formed by individuals wanting to play but dont have enough people together to start a team. This is a great way to make friends and find a team that is looking for additional players for the following season. This team will be managed by league officials until a captain has been selected and you have been in contact with him/her. 

Q.Do I have to pay a processing or membership fees?
A. No.  We don`t see any need to add any additional charges to play kickball. We also do not tack on hidden corporate fees.

Q. What will show up on my credit card statement for this registration?

A. You should see Hannah Games LLC listed on your statement.
