What is the best way to contact a Planet Social Sports Representative?

Goto the specific league page and use our "Contact Us" form and we will get back to you asap

How do I signup / pay the registration fee?

You must be logged on to our website to Sign up Sports and/or events.

There are two steps that need to be completed to register for an event or play in our leagues

  1. Register to be a member of our website
  2. Complete the REGISTRATION form:
    1. Fill out Personal Info
    2. Team info
    3. Pay with your credit card on our secure website

 

If any of these steps are not completed, than you will not be registered and will miss out on the most fun of your life!!!   Just kidding but it is pretty freakin fun though 

 

What happens after I pay?

After payment the next steps are simple.  Show up to the pre-season parties, the practice games or show up to your first game that’s on the schedule.  The schedule will be posted on week before game time.  You or your Captain can get your shirts at the designated pre-party... that’s it.... See you on the field!!!!

 

If I sign up as a free agent or a group, am I guaranteed to get on a team?

If you are an individual who does not have a team, you will be added to established teams that need additional layers and/or New teams that are formed with other individuals.  We do our best to place all Free Agents on teams but in the event that teams fill up and we cannot put you on a team, we will refund your money.  PLEASE SEE REFUND POLICY.

 

Why are prices different for different leagues?

We get charged different prices for recreation spaces and for participant insurance rates.  We do our best to keep prices reasonable so that you can play for cheap.

What are the Referee's Fees each game?

Please goto your specific league pages for ref fee info.  Most of our leagues do not require ref fees and some are self reffed.  It will say on your league page

 

Can I sign up a whole team at once?

Yes.  Sign up as a captain via the REGISTRATION page, after you sign up get your friends and teammates to go to the same page and sign up under your name and your team name.  You must have at least 14 players signed up by the deadline.  If not we will add players to your team.

 

What are the Team Sizes?

Minimum team size for Football, Softball and Kickball are 14 players with a Maximum of 25.  Planet Social Sports don not limit the number of players on teams Created by Captains.  If “your” team wants to have 25 players, it’s up to the Captain that created it.  If you are on a team that we created due to combination of groups or free agents, we will limit team size to less than 20 players.  Please note our REFUND POLICY.

 

How old do you have to be to participate?

You must be 21 years old to participate in any of our events or leagues.

 

What is the deadline to register for leagues?

Deadlines for registration are independent for each league, but generally, registration ends a week before the season starts.  We may extend registration depending on team and league size and sometimes registration will go into the first week of games... but get signed up early because spots go fast.

Spots are first come first serve.  Don’t wait because leagues fill up fast and you don’t want to miss your chance to meet up and play in the best sports league around.

 

What if I don’t have my own team?

Goto our REGISTRATION page and sign up as a FREE AGENT.  We’ve have hundreds of free agents sign up over the years, with some teams comprised completely as free agents.  It’s a great way to meet new people and get involved... Come out and Play!!

 

How do I get on the same team as a friend?

To sign up on the same sports league team as a friend yo must know what team they signed up with.  This means that you must know who the captain or group starter is.  After that.. it’s easy.  During the registration process you select the captain’s name or the team name that they started.  It just takes a click of the mouse... Easy as pie!!

 

How long are the seasons?

Depending on league location and time of year, the season can be 6 to 9 weeks long

 

How long do we play for?

Games are an hour, for all leagues and sports... except for bowling leagues.  They have their own individual rules

 

When will we receive our t-shirts?

T-Shirts are distributed on the designated pre-party/signup night.  (Listed on the specific league pages).  Captains are responsible for gathering all shirts and distributing to team mates.  If captains cannot make the t-shirt night, another teammate should be designated to show up to receive the shirts.

 

What is the Refund Policy?

REFUND POLICY - Planet Social Sports has a NO REFUND Policy.  All sales are final.  All appropriate Refund Request should be sent to refund@planetsocialsports.com for consideration

There are only 2 reasons that a Refund will be Given

  1. The League Season gets cancelled
  2. You do not get assigned a team as a free agent

Schedules
All league schedule requests must go through the league office. Any other attempt to schedule / reschedule games without the consent of Planet Social Sports will result in a forfeiture of games and a possible banning from the league.  All league schedule requests must be made at least 3 weeks prior to the game in question. As well as your opponents captain must approve the change.  Schedules are posted at the beginning of the season in full so that teams can plan their schedules, we can schedule our people, the city can staff and permit the parks so that everyone knows what to expect.
Keep in mind that 'for requests' there is limited field availability due to tight city permits and that all of our requests must be approved by the 'city' as well as us.

What happens in the event of league rain outs?

We will not make up the first rainout but will do everything in our power to make up the second and it is up to PSS officials on whether we will make up more after the 2nd rainout.  Although we would love to be able to we cannot control the weather J

What happens if I don't have enough players by the Registration deadline?

If a team does not reach the minimum of 14 players by the Registration deadline then we will add available free agents to your team.  Or possibly combine your team with another depending on the numbers.  Some free agents may come together as multiple players and or we may put extra players on you team to help to balance the league.  Remember... for most of our sports the number of players on the field is 10.  If you are missing a couple of players each week it will put you the limit and close to forefit. Teams don't want to get into forefit situations because if you experience more then two, we reserve the right to refuse your entry into upcoming seasons.  The average team size of a league with 10 players on the field is 16 players.  We do not allow any subs from outside the league, meaning people that have not paid their REGISTRATION fee and signed the appropriate waiver.
