General Registration Information
Please take a moment to review the registration information below.
When can I register?
Registration runs on a seasonal basis (spring, summer, fall, winter). In the past registration has sold out very quickly (within the hour of opening), so it is best to sign up right when registration opens to ensure your team gets a spot in the league. To make sure you are up-to-date on all registration opening, sign up on our mailing list.
How do I register?
Click on the registration link located near the top of this page to begin. First you will have to choose your day/location of play.
Next you will have the option of creating a team, joining a team, or signing up as an individual (to be placed on team later).
Finally fill out the registration form along with your payment information and hit submit. It's that easy.
How do I create a team?
When you select the "Create a Team" option you will be asked to set up a team name and a team password. When your teammates go through registration later, they must use your team name and password. Please send them that information once you have completed your registration. By creating a team, you are designating yourself as team captain.
How do I join a team?
After you click your day/location, you will be able to select from a list of teams. When you register you will be able to enter your team password to join the team created by your captain. You must have the team password in order to join the team. If you do not have the team password check with your captain. Passwords are case sensitive. If you do not know the people on the team you can't join it, but you can sign up to play as an individual.
How many players can be on a team?
Different divisions within DC Bocce have different player minimum requirements. Our outdoor spring, summer and fall divisions require a minimum of 6 players, our fall and winter indoor divisions require a minimum of only 5 players. This policy is in place to ensure teams have enough people to field a roster each week and to avoid forfeits. We do not have a maximum number of players, but can recommend a ceiling of 10 players to make sure each person gets enough playing time. If you are playing indoor or Premier bocce, we recommend a max of 8 players per team.
What if I don't have enough people to play on a team?
We reserve a number of team spots in each division for individuals signing up separately. If you are interested in playing bocce but don't have a team you can sign up as an individual.
If you have a couple of friends who are interested in playing but not a full team, you can all sign up to play as individuals. Just send an email to your division manager or to email@example.com requesting to be placed on the same team after everyone has registered.
All individual registrants will be placed on teams at the close of registration, at which time we will contact the newly formed team with an introduction email. At that time you will select a team name and captain.
What if my team played in the league before?
All teams must be created from scratch, and will be created on a first come first serve basis once registration opens. There are no carry-overs from previous seasons.
What happens if I can't sign up?
If your division of choice fills up, try signing up for different division. Demand for each day and location vary, and there may be openings in the other divisions. If some people are unable to play on other days, you may consider splitting your team up and playing as individuals on different days. We promise you will make friends--everyone in the league is very friendly. If you must play in a specific division, email your division manager (it will be displayed on each registration page) and request to be placed on the waitlist. Sometime teams may drop out or need to be combined and space may open up. Waitlist spots are not guaranteed, so your best bet is to sign up right when registration opens to get your division of choice.
How much does it cost?
Different divisions are set at varying price points. The indoor divisions are regularly priced at $45 per player. The outdoor divisions are priced at $60 per player. And the Premier League divisions are priced at $70 per player. Tournament registration prices vary. These are the standard registration prices, however, there is a price increase towards the end of the registration period for late registrants - we cannot emphaize enough how important it is to sign up early! All DC Bocce League members receive an official t-shirt, enjoy exclusive food and beer specials at their sponsor bar, as well as free parties, contests, prizes, and exclusive event opportunities throughout the season. Any cancellations made before the close of registration will be subject to a $25 cancellation charge. No cancellations/refunds will be accepted after registration closes.
