Rules & Regulations

Gotta know the rules!!

 

Captains are responsible for making sure everyone on their team knows the rules! But... if you need a good laugh, I would suggest you read these pretty hilarious rules! Even if you're not the best player out there - at least you'll be the smartest! So, go ahead and read the terms & conditions and look over the player waiver. We know you can't resist!
