WAITLISTING for a sport (new procedure)

Please Note: By registering your team for a “Waitlist,” you are not Waitlisting that specific time. You will be added to the Waitlist “pool” and added to any available league at the Manager’s Meeting that is not currently full, or will be added to a newly created league day/time if all available league times have filled up. It is better to find an open time and join/pay for that division.
