How do I register
without a credit card?
A: - A credit card is required for online registration. Please send us a message if you need to make other payment arrangements.
What if I do not have enough people for a full team?
A: - No problem. Your group will be combined with others after registration has closed to form a full team. It's a great way to meet new friends. See the next question on how to register with this scenario.
How do my friends and I register if we do not have a full team, but want to all play on the same team?
A: - One player should Join as a Team Captain, in which they will create a new team and an "invite code". They should send the "invite code" to their friends to join their team. During the Create a Team step, they will also be required to enter a "Number of Players Estimate" for their team and they should put the approximate number of players they plan to have on their team. This number is only for GO Kickball management planning purposes and does not limit the team on players. If you have less than a full team, we will combine the team with other teams and free agents at the end of registration to create complete teams. Click here to view the REGISTRATION STEPS for joining as a Team Captain.
What if it is just me registering?
A: - No problem. When you register online, there's an option to join a team or register as an individual ("Free Agent"). Individuals will be added to teams when registration closes. It's a great way to meet new people. Click here to view the REGISTRATION STEPS for joining as a Free Agent.
How many players are on each team?
A: - Each team has a minimum of 15 and a recommended max of 25 players (you can have more than 25 if you choose). Generally, we have found that 18 players is the optimal team size.
Why is there a minimum of 15 players on a team?
A: - We require at least 15 players as week-to-week there are always a couple players on vacation or out of town, and we want to make sure there are always enough players each week to play a game and avoid forfeits. Forfeits are no fun and ruin the experience for everyone so this has been a great way to avoid that.
How many men / women must be on the field?
A: - Teams can have up to 11 players (including 4 women) playing in the field each inning. At least 4 women and a minimum of 8 players total must take the field together for an official game. Players can rotate playing in the field from inning-to-inning, but there must always be at least 4 women and a min of 8 players total.
When registering as a Team Captain, what is the "Number of Players Estimate"?
A: - The "Number of Players Estimate" is only for GO Kickball management planning purposes and does not limit your team to the number of players that can register on your team. It helps GO Kickball plan each league to capacity and avoid any over-capacity issues.
How can I register a Corporate team and have my company pay for the team?
A: - A company can pay for a Corporate team one of two ways:
1- The Team Captain registers, creates the team and pre-pays for the number of players on the team in a one lump payment via the online website registration process. A Pre-paid Code is generated within the system for the number of players, and the Captain will send that Pre-paid Code to his/her players to use and register for free. NOTE that all players still must register the the Pre-paid Code just gives them a free registration during the payment step. In this case, the Team Captain would pre-pay for the team and expense the cost of the team to his/her respective company using the receipt he/she receives via email after registration is completed.
2- The Team Captain can submit a company check to GO Kickball made payable to "GO Kickball, LLC" for the entire team cost (season fee * # of players) and GO Kickball will create a 100% Discount Code for the team players to register for free. For this option, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request this process.
How do I submit a request for my membership to be transferred to another individual if I cannot play?
A: - Send us an email requesting a transfer from you to a new player with a detailed explanation why you need to transfer your membership. GO Kickball Management will make a decision based on the legitimacy of the situation and request.
