Sports Monster's focus is to provide well-run leagues, tournaments and events that are enjoyable to our participants. Our leagues start and end on time. We enforce our rules and foster an enjoyable playing environment.

Who can play in Sports Monster?

All Sports Monster leagues are open to the public. Participants must be 19 years or older and in good health. Proof of ID is required. Players may be asked to provide ID at any time during the league/tournament. All participants MUST sign a waiver of liability prior to participation in any league or event. While paid membership is encouraged, it is not mandatory. Free members are charged a minor surcharge per league or event for participation.

What is the average age of participants in Sports Monster?

It varies depending on the city and sport. In general, most participants are between 23 and 35 years old. However, we have a number of participants who are well into their 50's in addition to those just out of high school.

If I am signing up by myself, is that okay?

YES! We actively encourage people to sign up if they don't have a full team. While full teams are great, we understand that a lot of people would like to participate but can't get an entire team together for whatever reason. Every season, there are hundreds of Sports Monsters signing up by themselves or with a friend or two. We create new teams with those individuals and hold into meetings prior to the season so that everyone gets to meet. You can link to your city, go to the sport or activity of interest, and register as an individual. Please keep in mind that individual registration is based on supply and demand. Sports Monster asks that you be flexible about when and where you can play so that you'll have a better opportunity to be placed.

When you sign up to participate in a league - or accept an invitation to join a team, you will create your profile at that time.
