Before you register

Before you register, please review the League Regulations. The VUL relies on the cooperation of all captains and players to follow those regulations.


Everyone must create an account and agree to the Player Consent Agreements before participating in any program. The agreements include a declaration that you are at least 19 years old or that you have provided parental consent to participate if you are under 19 years old.

For those under 19, parental consent can be provided in one of two ways:

  • When a youth registers for a program they are asked for their parent or guardian's email address. Instructions are emailed to the parent or guardian in order to provide parental consent online. 
  • If the parent or guardian can't provide consent online, they should contact us for a paper form.

Age Requirements

  • Adult programs: All captains must be at least 19 years old, and most players must be at least 19 years old. Youth can participate in an adult program only if they turn 17 years old before December 31st and they provide parental consent before the program starts.
  • Youth programs: All players must be under 19 years old. Youth can register a team themselves, but all teams must have at least one adult chaperone present at all games. All players must provide parental consent before they participate.

How to register for Standard leagues

Registration for all programs is done through our online registration system. There are two options for Standard leagues:

  • Team registration (team captains should select this option)
  • Placement registration (players who want to be placed on a team should select this option)

Note: if you already have a team you do not need to register. Your captain will send you an invitation via email to join their team and you will likely pay them a share of the team fees.

Team registration

When a captain registers their team, they are asked for:

  • Contact information
  • Player information (e.g. age, experience, skill level)
  • Preferred timeslot (day & time of play)
  • Preferred division (the team's skill level)
  • Payment


Most teams will play on their first choice of timeslot, but that is not guaranteed. We need an even number of teams in each timeslot, and sometimes they fill up. If we can't accommodate all teams in a timeslot, the lowest priority team will be offered their second choice, or dropped if there is no room. Priority is given to those who register first and meet all registration requirements, including full payment and rosters. We usually allow returning teams (those that participated in this league last year) to register first before other teams.


Teams will be placed in divisions with similarly skilled teams (see League Structure for more info). Teams may not be placed in their preferred division, but rest assured you will be placed in a division with teams of similar skill level.


After a captain registers a team they must invite players to join their roster. Teams must have sufficient players on their roster before their registration will be accepted. The minimum is 12 for most leagues, but we recommend at least 14-16 players. When joining a roster, players are asked for Contact information, Player information, and the Consent Agreements.

Placement registration

Individuals are encouraged to find a team to join.

If you cannot find a team, you can register by yourself or with 1-2 friends and we will attempt to place you on a team with other individuals. However, placement is not guaranteed. There may not be enough space on the night you request, or there may be an imbalance of genders. Your money will be refunded if you cannot be placed on a team. We sometimes have a shortage of women-matches, so you are more likely to be placed on a team if you register in a Duo or Trio with a woman-matching friend.

If you find a team to join after you register, contact us as soon as possible. For all information regarding refunds, please see the Refund Policy

How to register for Hat leagues

In Hat Leagues players register by themselves or with 1-2 friends, and the VUL creates all of the teams.

When you register, you will be asked for:

  • Contact information
  • Player information (e.g. age, experience, skill level)
  • Preferred timeslot (day & time of play)
  • Payment

Most players will play in their timeslot of choice, though priority is given to those who register first.

Skill Level

During registration and as part of your profile you'll be asked about your skill level. Be sure to keep this setting up-to-date so that we can keep the teams balanced.
