News and Announcements
This section is to be used to provide Team Managers with useful information. If you have suggestions for content please email firstname.lastname@example.org
For a participant to be considered a legal player, three things need to happen.
- Team manager notifies the league that a particular player is rostered to her team. This can be done during the initial team registration. Changes (additions/deletions) to the team roster should be emailed to the league at email@example.com.
- Player must complete and submit an online Participant Waiver prior to any activity with the team.
- Player must manually complete and sign a venue roster at the field prior to play.
The Participant Waiver is required for players rostered to a team. The online Participant Waiver (PW) is available on the Eteamz website or by request to the league Secretary. Rostered players may access the Participant Waiver by clicking on the "Rostered Players Online Waiver" link at www.sjwsoftball.org. Submitted waivers are automatically stored and are date- and time-stamped.
A participant may only be rostered to one team and thereby submit only one active waiver per season. If the player’s team affiliation changes, a new waiver is required. The most current waiver will be considered active.
Separate waivers are required for participation in Play Days and Give Softball a Try Days. Submission of a PW does not waive, change, or modify the requirement of invidual online registration for other events.
Give Softball a Try Day Registration (Waiver):
Players looking for a team to join may participate in a Give Softball a Try Day (GSATD). Separate online registration/waiver is required for each GSATD attended. The GSATD Registration form can be found by clicking on "New to SJWSL? Join a Team Here." Submission of the Rostered Player Waiver noted above is not required for GSATD participation. (The PW is completed once rostered to a team.)
Play Day Registration (Waiver):
Play Days are open to any interested female, 18 years or older. Participation by players in the league is highly encouraged. A separate online registration/waiver is required for each Play Day attended. Play Day Registration can be found by clicking on the "Play Days: Info and Register" link. Submission of the Rostered Player Waiver noted above is not requried for Play Day participation.
This is created from the online waiver form. It is good for the calendar year. If any information changes (different team, contact #, etc.) a new form must be filled out prior to the first game you play (insurance reasons). This roster is used to verify league Participant Waivers on file.
As a volunteer-run league your assistance is needed to encourage your players to sign up early. The main venues for team volunteers are Play Days, Give Softball a Try Days, fundraisers, and other league events. Only participants who volunteer in advance and are confirmed by the activity coordinator will receive team credit for their service.
Online pre-registration for volunteers is required. Volunteers will need to submit a separate registration form for each event where they are volunteering. Online registration is available at the Volunteer Here link.
Once the season’s teams registrations are confirmed, team managers will be given access to see who has volunteered for each event and how many volunteer hours their team has accumulated.
What is a "Sign up Day"?
It is a relaxed venue in which to meet league staff and players and practice softball in a casual, fun environment.
Individual players seeking a team must attend a Sign Up Day in order to get placed on a team. It’s free to attend. You can attend as many days as you wish; however, online registration is required for each day attended. See below.
- If Sign Up Days are not yet scheduled for the season you wish to play, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (408) 800-2425.
- Sign Up Days usually last about 2 hours. If you have non-metal cleats and a glove, bring them along with your checkbook/cash/credit card (with which to make your "good faith/highly interested in playing" $80 deposit) and plenty of water/sports drinks. Wear comfortable clothes. Please show up 10 minutes prior to the start of the session. DO NOT BE LATE or you will miss valuable stretching and warm-up time.
- Don’t’ stress, Sign Up Days are NOT “tryouts!” We just want to meet you and get to know you, so we can better match you a team, which makes for more happy people. So far we have been able to place all players who were serious about being placed on a team.
Dogs are welcome but MUST be on a leash. You must be 18 years or older to play.
Please check the calendar for dates, times, and locations.
IF you would like to sign-up for one or more of these sessions, please click on the link below and fill out the form. We NEVER share personal information.
