Posted on behalf of Pink Turf Soccer League.
PTSL will be hosting an in-person registration night on Wednesday March 12th at O'Grady's pub, 518 Church street, (6-8pm) for all previous members of Pink Turf (please read the fine print below)*. We encourage you to stick around, have a drink and mingle with your friends and soccer mates. For registration night only we encourage cash or cheque payments. After March 12, payments will be accepted online only.
On Thursday March 13th, PTSL will be opening registration online to anyone, but for the first week, preference will be given to previous members of the league in the priority of the order that both their application AND payment have been successfully received (in other words, a previous PTSL player will only receive priority placement in the league when payment is received). Please indicate on your registration form if you have played in the league before and we will cross-reference it with our records.
This means that from March 12 - March 19 any returning player will be given priority to register in the league over new players. Starting March 20th, if the league has not filled up yet, priority will be given in the sequence applications are received, regardless of whether you have played in PTSL before or not.
If you are a returning member and are planning to join the league with a new player, your friend cannot be guaranteed placement in the league until after March 19. We will start sending confirmation emails of successful registration to returning and new players starting March 20th. Please do not email us before March 20th for this confirmation.
Why are we doing this?
Pink Turf has become more known in the city which means we become more popular and fill up faster every year. Last year we offered online registration for the first time which was both better for administration purposes but was also much more convenient for our members. This had an unintended consequence with many previous PTSL players, who were not aware of the demand to register for our league, having waited too long to apply and could not get in. We would like to give them a better chance for joining this year while also trying to encourage broader queer participation in our league.
If you have any questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Until the whistle blows,
*If you were not a member of PTSL in the past two seasons, please be able to "proove" you were once a member of our league for at least one full season (e.g. bring a jersey, have a more recent PTSL member vouch for you, etc). We will have a list of previous PTSL players on hand.
