Open Division 2012-2013
Guidelines for the Open Division
The Open Division is offered to coaches who have a preformed team and would like to keep the team playing together. This division is a competitive division with more highly skilled players. We do not have a playing time rule in this division; it is strictly up to the coaches.
To register your team you will need to fill out the open league roster form and make sure you have all parent signatures. Send it in with your team payment to WSBL. If you have multiple teams or you are a returning team contact WSBL for a special team discount. The league fees are as follows: Fall 2012 and Summer 2012 the team fee is $650 a team. For the Winter 2012-2013 and Spring 2013 league the fee is $850 per team. Fall and Summer play a 6 game season plus a top final four post season tournament and the Winter and Spring season plays a 8 game season plus a top final four post season tournament.
All players must be in the same team jersey with a number.
**Once a player signs up for the recreation division and is placed on a recreation team they are ineligible to play on an Open Division Team.**
