As a reminder, there will not be any TORSO matches played this weekend in observance of the 4th of July holiday weekend. Matches will resume on July 10. Enjoy the holiday weekend!
Summer teams, please be aware that Bear Creek Park has not reopened yet following the heavy rains during the past few months. Our Summer League managers and scheduler are working hard to deal with the park closure. They will be adjusting playing dates and venues as required by field availability so that teams can play their games. Please be sure to check with your team manager and the TORSO Schedules page for the latest game venue and time.
TORSO 8v8 Summer League will begin June 12, 2016. Please see the TORSO Summer League page for inforamation and rules for the games. A printable PDF of the rules is available on that page. For scheduling questions, please contact TORSO Scheduler, Rob Rule at firstname.lastname@example.org. The complete season schedule has been posted on the Schedules page and in Demosphere.
Our League does not reschedule due to insufficient players on game day. If a team knows that they cannot field a team for an upcoming match, they need to notify the Scheduler (email@example.com) and Referee Liaison (firstname.lastname@example.org) 72 hours or sooner to avoid a fine of $100. This policy has been updated to prevent opposing teams to show up with a last minute forfeit. The earlier a team can notify the League the more of a chance we have to avoid Field and Referee assignment fees.
Players who wish to pay team fees via credit card can now make online payments and have the payment apply to their team. Please work with your team manager to determine how much you owe towards your playing fees for the season and consider online payments as an option. Players can make individual payments for registration, misconducts or other general team assessments via the Player E-Pay option. TORSO uses PayPal to process credit card or PayPal account payments and will need their player ID to make payments through this service. Use Player E-Pay now.
Call the TORSO Hotline (832-487-8786) to check park/field closures before driving to the field. If the hotline states that a field is open as of 11:00am on game day, teams must go to the field. The hotline is updated by 11am each Sunday - the hotline may be updated before 11:00am but 11am is the official posting time. TORSO is encouraging all players and referees to use this text message based communication tool for field availability status notifications. There is no charge to sign-up for this service and it will overlap the Weather Line. If you haven't signed up yet, please do it today - it only takes a minute to register. Sign-up now.
Team managers looking for players to fill roster positions should access our prospective player database. It contains both male and female players that want to play with TORSO.
