What are my registration options?
There are three registration options:

This varies from league to league. There is always an Early Registration, Regular Registration, and Late Registration price which increases each period. Sign up early and SAVE MONEY!!
How do I register using a free season I’ve earned?
Simply email us and we take care of the rest. Don’t register online prior to emailing us as credits can’t be issued retroactively. If there is a price difference we will let you know but if it’s equal or lesser value to your credit the league is on us!
Is there a sign up deadline?

Definitely! Just email us the names of the players who want to stay together and we will make it happen!
What happens if I am not placed on a team?
If you are not placed on a team we will provide you a full refund, the option of moving your registration to another sport/league, or holding onto your credit until you are ready to join us!
How long is a season?
All seasons are 8 weeks in length. With a full 8 team league, the first 5 weeks will be the regular season and the final 3 weeks will constitute the playoffs with everyone qualifying. (Schedule may vary slightly if less than 8 teams) With leagues that contain more than 8 teams not all teams are guaranteed a playoff game. If your teams gets knocked out of the playoffs or if your team doesn’t qualify, you will still have friendly games the remaining weeks.
The entire regular season schedule is online and the playoff schedule will be posted following the last week of the regular season. You will receive weekly game time reminders to the email you registered with.
When does the schedule come out?
The regular season schedule is released the Sunday prior to the league start date. (Occasionally comes out early if possible)
Post Season schedule comes out each week following results of that weeks games.
Is there a maximum number of players that can register for a team?
No. The more the merrier! All teams do have a minimum number of players required but no maximum.
What is the refund policy?
Refunds are not provided once the season begins or day the season is scheduled to start. If you need a refund because you are unable to play prior to the season we are very happy to reimburse you for your registration as follows:

What happens if a league rains out? When is the decision to cancel made?
NIS will notify all players and teams of cancellations a minimum of 1 hour prior to game time. Notifications will be sent via email, text (for players who register for this option), and social media outlets Facebook and Twitter. We work to make the decision to cancel as early as possible and notify all players, occassionally it may be last minute depending on the situation.
What is the forfeit policy?
All forfeits must be made by 12pm the day of the game for weeknight leagues and 12pm the day before the game for weekend leagues. If a team forfeits after that time the captain will forfeit his/her free season/credit and there is a $50 fee that must be paid to the opponent.
If your team needs to forfeit please let us know as early as possible in the days prior to the game so we can let your opponent know and try to find them an opponent in your absence.
How can I play for 1/2 off?
When you captain a team for a season you earn a credit equal to half your registration price towards any league or tournament you choose. The credit is good as long as you have an open registered account. To use your credit earned to register for a season, simply log into your account and register normally. Credit will appear on your account following the final week of the season you captain.
