Spring League 2024

Welcome to Spring League! Every league in the Spring League is a 'hat' league. A hat league means you sign up either by yourself or in a small group, and you are placed onto a team with other players by the MUFA league directors. Each league will last up to 8 weeks, starting on April 8th and ending on May 30th, and each team can enjoy two free pitchers of beer at the Great Dane after every game. 

 

We will continue to use a lottery system to start registration. In the lottery system, you register for one or more leagues you want to play in and rank them based on preference. We will randomly select players from the lottery and place them into their highest preferred league that still has space. You can read more details about that here. 

 

Are you interested in youth? Please check out our youth page.

 

Note: The start date and each week's games depend on whether the fields can be played on and if it is safe to play (e.g., bad weather). There are no make-up games or refunds due to bad weather.

Quick FAQ

How does the lottery registration work? 

For full details of the lottery, you can go here.

 

What is a hat league?

Our hat leagues are where players join individually (or with one friend) rather than as a full team. Players rate themselves during registration, and after registration closes, we form teams based on the player ratings to try to have the most balanced teams possible. Full teams are not permitted to join the fall league as full teams.

 

What is baggage?

To "bag" with someone, associate your registration with someone else's to ensure you get on the same team. So you can bag with your friend, S/O, or whomever you choose, and they will be placed on the same team as you.

 

What does MMP or FMP stand for?

MMP means male-matchup preferred or male-matching player.

FMP means female-matchup preferred or female-matching player. 

 

What do Mixed, Open, FMP, MMP mean for the league names?

These reference the format that the league is played in. 

Mixed: Alternating 4MMP/3FMP - 3MMP/4FMP gender-ratio 

Open: Teams of any gender-matching preferred players, no required ratio on the field

MMP: Only Male-Matching Preferred players can play in this league

FMP: Only Female-Matching Preferred players can play in this league

 

Agender, gender non-conforming (GNC), genderqueer, or gender fluid players are encouraged to join leagues and match up with the players they feel most comfortable playing with and marking. The goal is to make all MUFA programs more welcoming and safe for all athletes.
