Tools for Free Agents

Looking for a team to play for? Team Captains are looking for you too!


Free Agents are players actively looking to join a team. Our goal is to connect Free Agents and Team Captains so everyone wins.

Most Common Ways to Join a TEAM

1. Register as a Free Agent

Click the “Free Agent” button for each league you’re willing and available to play in – it’s free to register! Captains looking for players will invite you if they think you’re a good fit for their team, so be on the lookout for an invitation email. If you accept the invite, the Captain will likely issue you an invoice to pay your share of the team dues.

2. Post to our "Free Agents & Captains" group

Post your desired league, skill level, days available, preferred position(s), and/or experience in our Facebook group. Captains will comment or message you if they think you’re a good fit for their team. Include as much info about yourself as possible, and if you have friends you want to play with, mention that too.

3. Join a pickup event

Many players come to our pickup events and are looking to form teams, so come out to a session and meet other players! If you’d like help getting connected, let the Field Manager know you’re looking for a team – they often know which players also play in leagues and might be recruiting.

4. Start your own team

Sometimes if you want a job done right, you have to do it yourself! Take the wheel, you control your destiny! And other phrases. But seriously, it’s a lot easier than you think to get 8-12 other humans together to start your own team, mostly because we have a large pool of so many humans just like you RIGHT NOW, all looking for a team. Just click the “Team” button for the league you want, fill out your info (it’s free to create the team), then once you’re done registering, click the “Recruit Free Agents” button on your Manage Team page and start browsing and inviting Free Agent players to join your team.

Free Agent FAQ

What is a Free Agent signup?

Free Agents are players who don’t have a team yet but are looking to play on one. Every season we connect players who sign up as Free Agents with Captains who are looking for additional players for their team – it’s a win-win! When you click the “Free Agent” button on a league, you will be asked to describe yourself and what type of team you’re looking for. Captains from that league will then be able to view this info and invite you to join their team. It does not cost anything to sign up for the Free Agent pool; you will only be asked to pay your share of team dues if you agree to join a team.

When can I expect to be invited to join a team?

It all depends how many Captains are looking for players during the season you signed up for as a Free Agent. Typically, as the league Signup Deadline approaches, Captains more actively recruit Free Agents to join their team. But the sooner you sign up, the better your chances are of being invited to join a team, since some Captains begin building their roster early on.

My friend and I both want to play and sign up together, but only if we're on the same team. How can we do that?

When you sign up as a Free Agent, be sure to include info or details about friends you may want to play with. Captains are often looking for several new players, so this could help your chances of being invited to join a team.

What type of footware is recommended?

In general, we recommend regular molded grass cleats for our artificial grass turf fields. However, players are free to wear any boot they’d like, as long as they don’t have metal studs. Some players wear turf cleats, a few even wear flats. Our artificial grass fields are fairly thick (like real grass) and have a rubber pellet base.

Are shin guards required?

Shin guards are highly recommended for both leagues and pickup, but they are not a requirement to play.

What color shirt should I wear?

After you have been invited to join a team, your Captain will advise you what color shirt to wear to games.

I'm not sure if I should play, I'm not that good...

While at least a tiny bit of experience playing soccer is recommended by no means do you have to be “good”! Our Coed league is very accommodating to players without much experience, players with no experience but who are either athletic or willing to put forth their best effort, or those who haven’t played in a while. And the club atmosphere in general is welcoming and friendly.

I want to play, but may have to miss a game because of work/vacation/etc.

If you have to miss a game or two, that’s not a problem. Captains typically carry extra people on their rosters since not everyone will be able to make the game every week. However, if you need to miss more than half the season, it’s probably best to play in pickup games for now.
