Types of registration:
Regardless of how you want to register, individual / free agent, small group or a team entry. Information for each individual person must be made first and then after completely finishing putting in all your information, signing the waiver ( rules of participation), paying your individual entry fee, you may then go back and add additional individuals to your registration. Questions? Call Terry at 816-309-5578
and he will help you.
Individual / Free Agent
You want to play but you do not have a team.
At Thunder Beach, you can register as a free agent /Individual entry, and we will try and place you on a team.
For those people who have another person they want to play on the same team
with, you can sign up together and Thunder Beach will place you on the same team.
Caution: Usually one of the two people signing up, one is a better athlete than the other. Whatever level of play you select to participate at, both players are expected to be able to play at that level. Once you are playing at that level there is no whining or sniveling.
If you are a good player and you have chosen to play down a level and you are outplaying everyone on the pitch (field) and embarrassing the other team. Thunder Beach reserves the right to move you up and put you on a team at a higher level if there is an opening and an established team needs an additional player. If there is no opening at the higher level you will have to sit out and not play until the following season at which time you would sign up for the next level up. Sorry, there is no refund.
For those people who have a group from school, church or a small group of friends or family members that want to play together, Thunder Beach will take your small group and once registration is finished we will try and combine your group with those free agents / individuals and two-player sign-ups to make up a team.
You must make a choice:
When entering a small group the talent level may vary dramatically. Whatever level of play you sign up for, everyone will be expected to play at that level. If you are a good player and you have chosen to play down a level and you are outplaying everyone on the pitch (field) , and embarrassing the other team. Thunder Beach reserves the right to move you up and put you on a team at a higher level ( If there is an opening and an established team needs an additional player.) If there are two or more of you that are obviously over talented for the division that you signed up for, when Thunder Beach attempts to move you up a level, there is a better then average chance that the people moved would be placed on different teams.
Thunder Beach also reserves the right to remove people from a level of play they have signed up for in whcih they are head and shoulders above their competition. Players or teams that play down may have to sit out the remaining games of the season without a refund.
Vice versa if you have signed up for a higher level and you are unable to keep up at that level. Thunder Beach reserves the right to try and move you or your team down a level.
If we are unable to accommodate that move, you or your team will have to sit out the remaining games and wait until the next season.
A 3 vs 3 full team is 6 or more players
A 4 vs 4 full team is 8 or more players
Thunder Beach reserves the right to add players to a team entry when that team entry does not have the number of registered and paid team members for a Thunder Beach full team.
