Q:
"I'd love to play in a foosball league, but I don't feel like I have enough experience yet. I wouldn't want to underperform and let down my teammates. How good do I need to be to have success in a league?"
A:
Surprisingly, playing the league is the best way for new players (or those who have been inactive for a long time) to get involved with foosball. There are several reasons for this:
  • It is handicapped. This means that no matter what your playing level, matches will be competitive and inexperienced players will actually be able to hold their own against veterans. (This is not the case in regular tournaments.)
  • You get to play with your friends in every match. You don't have to worry about teaming up with players you don't know very well and then "letting them down" because you have less experience than they do. In the league, you can get together with good friends every week and have fun as you are learning the ropes!

Q:
"My work schedule is unpredictable at times and I don't know if I will be able to reliably make it to matches on time every week. Am I able to play in the league as a part-time player?"
A:
YES! Players who cannot commit to regular weekly attendance can still get lots of league action as a substitute or reserve player. On any given week, chances are that several teams will be looking for substitutes for their matches. Although substitute players are not eligible for many team & individual prizes, and are not guaranteed a chance to play on any given day, it can be a lot of fun getting to meet many of the regular players and help them out from time to time. Also, this can work both ways! E.g., if you have an irregular work or family schedule but you figure you can make it to > 80% of your team's matches, you might consider joining the league and simply securing a substitute player to take your spot on those dates that you are unable to play.

Q:
"I'd really like to play this season, but I am not yet certain if I can commit. I'm hesitant to register right now; am I able to list myself as 'hopeful' until I have a better idea if I will be available to play?"
A:
No problem! When you register for the league you need not commit immediately to playing the season. Filling out our registration form will add you to the league sign-up sheet and the leagues page, and simply announces to everyone else that you are interested in playing! When you register you can indicate your preferences and explain details of your availability to the players (or privately discuss issues with the coordinators). You need not make a final commitment until the league nears its start date, and you will not be charged a league fee until you have been officially confirmed as a member.

Q:
"I don't have any friends that play, and I don't know most of the regular players. Can I still be on a team?"
A:
Don't worry - there are lots of other players also looking for teammates! That is the purpose of our league sign-up sheet - to help players find teammates, pick locations, schedules, etc. You can also check out our forum or attend some of our local events to meet our amazing & friendly player base - full of players who are just as hopelessly addicted to foosball as you!
