Player Eligibility

Can players play on multiple teams?

Yes! As a player, you may be rostered on as many teams as you like. Players can only play on one team per division. Players cannot be rostered on teams that are more than one skill division lower than that of regular league play. For example, an Elite level player may not be rostered on a B level team (based off of the example of Elite, A, B, C, D, Recreational). Women are allowed to play in any division regardless of this rule. In order to qualify for a team in the KC Summer Showdown Championship, a player must have been rostered with the same team during at least one qualifier.

*Players must play in the appropriate divisions. If a player is not playing in a division that is appropriate to their skill level, it is at the discretion of the tournament director to move the team to the correct division.
