REGISTRATION NUMBERS AS OF MARCH 3rd, 2014
The regular EMASS registration period, Jan 1 through February 28, 2014, has ended. Players registering after this period will be placed on a team roster in the appropriate division -- AS SPACE IS AVAILABLE.
League Total: 326 players are registered (37 of whom are rookies).
Registered for American Division: 69 (9 rookies)
Registered for Atlantic Division: 153 (17)
Registered for Metro Division: 87 (3)
Registered for National Division: 102 (8)
Atlantic: We are maxed out with players in the Atlantic Division. We will again have a 10-team division playing on Tuesdays and Thursdays. All games will be held in Wayland, except for one game a week, Tuesday, which will be held in Ashland. Team rosters will be announced before April 1st. Any player now signing up will be placed on our "waiting to be assigned" list. All rosters ARE currently filled, so there is no guarantee of an assignment.
Metro: The Metro Division coordinator will decide whether to have a division with 6 (as we had last year) or 7 teams (with byes) by mid-March. His decision will be based on the number of additional (if any) registering players between now and then. Any 65+ year old player now signing up should most likely count on being assigned to a team to start the season.
American: The American Division coordinator is weighing the decision to return to four teams in the division, or stretch to five (with a number of byes scheduled throughout the season). If the decision is to remain at 4 teams, this means that a number (similar to last year) of players who registered for the American will be moved to the National Division. (Of course, players in this category will be given the option to leave the league and have all monies refunded.) Again, the final decision will be made by the coordinator and his committee by mid-March.
National: The National Division's coordinator is working with the American Division coordinator to understand if it will remain at 8 teams.
