Team Registration and free agents (individual players) begins in March.

Individual players "Free Agents" can register on the website which will list their information under the Free Agent heading, those not recruited by an existing team may be placed on a team organized by the league commissioner to the best of our ability.  Please feel free to utilize the Free Agents list to organize your own team.  No fees are collected from Baltimore Beach until you organize a team or are picked up by one.

Team Fees are due before anyone can be locked into a league due to high demands
*Anyone who desires to play but has difficulty in paying fees please email Todd@BaltimoreBeach.com to discuss payment options.  We work hard to accommodate everyone who desires to play at the beach!
*Champions at the highest level for their league (2's, 4's, 6's) will receive gratis team fees for their next spring or summer registration within 1yr of the team's championship, provided they register and request gratis use by the "returning team deadline".
FORFEIT FEES ($25 paid to opponent's sponsor restaurant tab) are charged to any teams not making a Scheduled Match time.

Inclement Weather Policy Please check the website after 4pm on game day under the heading “Beach Conditions”.  Additionally we have a Baltimore Beach Facebook page which lists the latest status. Baltimore Beach Volleyball is not responsible for games cancelled by weather or other conditions beyond our control, however we will make every effort to re-schedule any cancelled games.  Make up games can be scheduled with staff on a number of weekends.

Scheduled Format (Tues. & Wed.) traditional scheduling, each team will get a designated start time and court assignment 6:15, 7:15, 8:15 or 9:15pm alternating each week.  Scheduling request should be brought up ASAP and must be made before your league begins.  15min grace period to begin match before 1st game is forfeited, additional 15min delay the match will be declared a forfeit.

Challenge Format (Sun, Mon, Thu, Fri & Sat) flexible scheduling to accommodate the needs of all players summer schedules we run - a round robin type of format - with a twist.  Basically what this means is: each week that your team is able to play, you show up to the courts anytime during your assigned division night and 2hr+ session time. Once enough players from your team arrive to compete, you will be given a card with your team name on it.  Place that card on the standard (pole that holds up the net) in order of arrival "first-come, first-serve" ......or in this case play. The cards and teams will rotate so that everyone gets to play, normally two games in a row.  Points are given for number of games played and won, total points determine position in playoffs. This system allows your team to miss a week, not be penalized, as there are a number of weeks during the season to earn points.

It's a system that usually results in more playing time. The winning team captains are responsible for making sure that their games are recorded correctly.  Our intent in creating this system was to play more games within  a flexible schedule and a fun social atmosphere!

Playoffs seeding will be determined by league record/standing, all teams make playoffs.  All playoff champions will receive prizes, champions at the highest level for their division (2's, 4's, 6's) will receive gratis fees. (see Fees above)
