       - If you completed registering and paying after the registration deadline expect to receive your tshirt before your games on week 4 of the season.

      If you attempt to participate in a league game and are not wearing your league tshirt you need to check in with BSR staff/referee prior to the games starting.  Expect that the referee will ask for a valid photo ID so you can be verified against the paid registered players for your team.

    • Can I alter my league tshirt?

      League shirts can be altered, but the alterations cannot impact the logos on the front or back of the shirts in any way. Doing so will render the shirt illegal.  Replacement shirts can be special ordered through two weeks after the season starts.  League shirts must be completely visible at all times during league play.  League shirts must be worn over a person’s torso the way the shirt was intended to be worn. Any alterations to the shirt that impact logos or failure to properly wear league shirts will result in that player being ineligible to play while wearing that tshirt. 
      Check each league’s rules page for any activity specific tshirt rules or requirements

      Players have the ability to order additional tshirts through the 2nd week after the league is scheduled to start through the BSR website.

    • How are standings calculated for the regular season?

      For the sports that play one game per night vs an opponent (example Kickball & Floorball) the SingleGameCalculator performs the following calculations (takes the first one where a tie is not calculated. If a tie is calculated, it moves on to the next item [the tie breaker]):
      1.  Win/Loss/Tie Calculated Points ((# Wins * 3) + ties)
      2.  Total Points
      3.  Head To Head
      4.  Points Scored
      5.  Points Against
      6.  Coin flip (system generated)

      For the sports that play multiple games per night vs an opponent (example Dodgeball & Cornhole) the MultiGameCalculator performs the following calculations (takes the first one where a tie is not calculated. If a tie is calculated, it moves on to the next item [the tie breaker]):
      1.  Win/Loss/Tie Calculated Points ((# Wins * 3) + ties)
      2.  Total Points
      3.  Head To Head
      4.  Winning Percentage
      5.  Coin flip (system generated)

      Some sports may have a customized scoring logic that would be explained in the rules for that sport.  (example Bar Games)

  • League team captains

    • What are team captain responsibilities?

      If you volunteer to be a team captain for a team you didn’t start:
        (1)  Communicate any league messages you receive to your team
        (2)  Help make sure your teammates know when and where games are played
        (3)  Organize your team at games as serve as the POC for referees to talk to
        (4)  Familiarize yourself with the rules
        (5)  Serve as an example for your team & help ensure sportsmanship
        (6)  If you have a question first look in the FAQ, sport info tab, sport rules tab, and if you can’t find the answer email us
        ** Do let us know ASAP for any issues your experiencing so we can see what we can do to help

      If you created a team:
        (1)  All of the same things listed above for those who volunteer to captain a team they did not start plus
        (2)  You are responsible for ensuring your teams roster reaches the minimum team size
        (3)  You are responsible for ensuring your teams roster qualifies for any gender requirements
        (4)  If you think you will need free agents for your team send an email to BSR within 4 days after registration closes
        (5)  Your team roster must have the minimum number of paid players minus the number of players your team deposit holds within 10 days after registration closes  (example:  cornhole teams need 6 players and the deposit covers 2 players; so a minimum valid cornhole team needs 4 paid players by 10 days after registration closes)

    • How do I register a team?

      On the website home page there is a registration section that displays all active open registrations; click on a link to register a team.  The same link can be found on the Info tab for each league.

      Once you have registered a team a link will be provided for you to share with those whom you would like to have join your team.

    • Where can I find my team link?

      (1)  Your team link can be found in the registration confirmation email you received
      (2)  You can always obtain your team link by logging into the BSR website, click on your email in the top right, select “my teams”, select the team, and the link can be found just above the team roster

    • How does the team deposit work?

      The deposit from team captains is held to ensure teams fill out to the minimum number of paid players needed for the team.  As team rosters fill with paid players the deposit will begin to be refunded.  A deposit will only be held if a team is unable to fill out it's roster with paid players, including free agents. 
      Example:  a cornhole team has a minimum number of 6 players needed for its roster.  The team deposit is covers the last two players to pay.  The team captain will pay their player fee plus a team deposit.  The deposit in this case is for players 5 & 6.  When players 2,3,4 register and pay nothing happens.  But when player 5 registers and pays that portion of the team deposit will be refunded to the captain.  And the remaining balance will be refunded when the 6th player registers and pays.  Additional players can still continue to register.
      Note:  paid free agents can be added to your teams roster and they will count as paid players.  BSR cannot guarantee free agents will be available for all sports all seasons; but we are usually able to help.

    • TIP for team deposit

      A team deposit paid by credit card may never actually even be collected.
      Purchases made on credit card are billed in the next billing cycle so typically from the day a team deposit would be paid by credit card until you would have to pay that bill would range from 29 to 58 days depending when you paid and how long until your next statement cycle.  As long as your team would reach a minimum number of paid payers before your next statement cycle your credit card be refunded the full deposit; thus technically you never would have paid the team deposit. 
      NOTE:  that is how you can “work the system”.  The key is you still must get your team to the minimum number of paid players.

    • Can I pay for unpaid players on my team?

      Yes, team captains can pay for unpaid players on their teams and then collect the money from the players at what may be a more convenient time.  To do so log into the BSR website.  Click on your email in the top right and select “my teams”.  Click on the team in question.  This will show you your team roster and you can select and deselect players you may choose to pay for.  And then check out using the PayPal button.

    • Can I register a partial team?

      Before registering a partial team contact us.  If there are enough free agents we may advise you to register the partial team and BSR would assign X free agents to your roster.  Otherwise we may advise that you register as a free agent and have your friends link to you
      (see FAQ for League free agents – how to register with friends)

    • How long do I have to add players to my roster?

      Players can continue to be added to team rosters through the end of the 3rd week after the season starts
      Players who register after the 2nd week after the season starts will not qualify for a league tshirt
      And team rosters much reach a minimum size of paid players by 10 days after registration closes
         Minimum size = The minimum rosters size for a team for that sport minus the team deposit
         example:   cornhole team minimum size is 4 = minimum roster size 6 minus team deposit that covers 2 players

    • How can I find players for my team?

      (1) ask friends, family, coworkers, people from church or other organizations your apart of, etc…
      (2) for each sport each season BSR runs an advertisement on Facebook; sending a message to folks asking them to join your team
      (3) post on social media (your FB page, twitter, etc...)
      (4) encourage players on your team to help recruit
      (5) contact BSR and let us know you would like assistance recruiting players for your team

    • Can I change my team name, team tshirt color, or other preferences?

      There is no way for you to change them in the system.
      But, before registration closes you can send an email to info@besocialrichmond.com let us know what you would like to do and we will update it for you.

    • I selected a preferred level, day, and/or game times… will I get them?

      The more options you select the more difficult it will be to honor as many as we can.  Selecting preferences means we will take what you most want into account, but we cannot guarantee them.  Historically we have been able to satisfy ~80% of preferences.

      Levels – if there are more than 12 teams in the league we may split the league into divisions based on levels.  If we are unable to all teams will play together in the regular season and then split in the playoffs.

      Days & times – sports played over multiple days and at multiple times per day; we can look to schedule more of your teams games on those days or at those times.

      REMEMBER – the more preferences you select the more difficult it will be to honor them.  We strive to balance honoring everyone’s requested preferences equally.

      BSR will do what we can to ensure you and all friends you register with are placed together on a team in the sport you have signed up for.  But considering the number of teams in the league and number of free agents who registered for your sport that season this could prove difficult.  It is possible we may reach out to you to inquire if you may be open to other options that could include but are not limited to playing on different teams or together in a different sport.
