Summer League will run Tuesday evenings from early June to early August.
TUESDAY – MIXED/OPEN HYBRID
Registration is OPEN
Plan: 4 mixed and 8 open “pods” where 2 mixed games and 1 open game occur each week. Each pod will be approximately 8 players.
Format: Each week, the 4 mixed pods will be paired with 4 open pods to make up the 2 MIXED game participants while the remaining 4 open pods will cover the other 2 teams for the 1 OPEN game. Survey showed 40% of respondents prioritized playing some version of MIXED. Here’s your chance! Format subject to change depending on exact DOM registered players. Despite it sounding quite different, this league is the most similar to our previous summer leagues.
Rotation: The rotating will be mostly random but in a 3-week game sample, each OPEN pod should expect to play 2 mixed games and 1 open game.
Results: The 2 pods on any given winning team will be granted a “win” and the 2 pods on a losing team will be given a “loss”. Pod with greatest win-loss record (after any applicable tie-breakers) will be recognized as summer league champions.
Tournament: This hybrid-model doesn’t bode well for a tournament so the traditional tournament will be replaced with a HAT tournament to be held on Saturday, August 12th, where players will be assigned a new team for that day only. Exact tournament structure after that is TBD.
Price:$30 for ESM residents and current students. $35 for everyone else.
Future:This rotating HYBRID league format is currently expected to be a one-time thing and act as a transition to future years of having 2 distinct leagues of MIXED (4/3 or greater ratio) and OPEN on 2 separate league nights.
The season will conclude with a League Tournament on August 12th
* Games start around 6pm
* At ESM Middle School Fields.
* Cost is $35. $30 for students and ESM residents. **
** Note: If you wish to play in the league, but are not able to pay some or all of the registration fee, please fill out registration to the payment page and email email@example.com to discuss options. Any discussion will be kept confidential.
