​Registration Information

We are diligently working to provide a safe, structured game environment that meets current city, state, and CDC guidelines. As such, we will be accepting fewer teams, and league availability will be more limited. If the division fills, we will be taking a team waiting list. Please contact Sports Management at 385-0458 to be added to this waiting list or if you have any additional questions. We thank you for your understanding.

  • Registration is taken on a team basis:
    • Online registration (for credit card payments) is available on our website (during open registration) 
    • In-person registration (for check/money order payments made payable to Treasurer, City of Virginia Beach) is accepted at the Sports Management office (4001 Dam Neck Road). Note: multiple checks (for one team) and cash payments are not accepted.
  • Each team pays a franchise fee to enter (payable at registration)
    • Competitive leagues (includes playoffs): $650
  • No residency requirement 
  • 10 games guaranteed
  • Players must be at least 18 years old or a high school graduate.

  • Leagues are subject to close-out prior to the last day of signups. If you see "Only # spaces left.
