2018 Stonewall Kickball Pittsburgh Spring Registration Information
Let’s Break The Winter Blues!
With all the nasty weather and freezing temps, we all want to get out of the house!! Well it’s time to clean off those cleats and lay down the bases at Arsenal Park for our 8th Season of Kickball in the City!!
Whether you are a returning player from a previous season or completely brand new to the league, we are very excited to have you joining this Spring!
This season we have 2 options when you register:
Want to create your own team? Then make sure you register as a “TEAM CAPTAIN.” Once you register as a captain and create your team you can either invite players to your team via email, or add them directly from the free agents list. ONLY 1 person per team can sign up as the captain. All others must sign up as FREE AGENTS using the email invite, or directly through the registration page.
Are you joining as a team player, or haven’t found a team yet? Then register as a “FREE AGENT.” All players, new and returning, that are not the captain will register as a free agent. Don’t worry, you can still get on your favorite team! Team captains can invite you or you can search teams yourself to see who is playing where!! Find a team you want to be on, reach out to the captain, and get yourself on their line up before the team reaches 20 players!
Please feel welcome to message Commissioner Devin Redinger on Facebook messenger if you have any questions or concerns at all. No matter how big or small. Whether it be you’re nervous about starting a new team, worried about not getting picked, not sure how to ask people to join your team or to join their team, etc….. You are not alone! Stonewall Kickball – Pittsburgh is going on its 8th season this Spring 2018 and there is not much the leadership team has not already heard and helped resolve. You can also email Devin at StonewallKickballPGH@gmail.com.
