Whether it’s your first year trying something new or you’re a veteran and managing 5 or more teams, this is an exciting time. Football season is around the corner and it’s time to prepare for ‘The Draft’ of your team.

There is one each, female only and coed, of $20 buy-in leagues. As of this writing, all leagues are full except for 2 spots available in the female only buy-in league. The defending champs are back and ready to take the top spot once again.
