Pub League is returning for its Spring Session, and we are proud to announce that our two-league format will be back. Last fall, Premier brought a new competitive level for our more experienced players, while Championship focused on enabling our beginner players to learn the game and have fun.
With that in mind, it's time to sign up for new and returning players, and this season we've split up sign-ups between the two levels. The Championship division will go on sale on Saturday, Feb. 11th at 8PM PT, and the Premier division will follow on Monday, Feb. 13th at 8PM PT. Pub League management will evaluate the Championship signups, and if any players are deemed inappropriate for that level, they will be notified of their status in Pub League.

Pub League Combine: Feb. 25th from 11:00AM-4PM
Week one: April 1st from 11AM-4:30PM
