Registration Info

So, Spring 2023 Stonewall Bocce season is right around the corner! And we are proud to welcome our returning sponsors, Trade, Number 9, Green Lantern, Metro Weekly, John Jack Photography, and Gatorade and our newest sponsors, Dacha and Capital Candy Store!

This year we will have up to 54 teams, with a maximum of 15 players per team and we will assign free agents to teams that do not reach the 15-player max if needed. As always, we will play at 6:45 pm on Thursdays on Logan Circle.

If you try to use your phone to register, it will NOT work - you have to use a laptop or desktop. [it's a problem with leagueapps]
Everyone will register through our Bocce website - Just click on Season 21 registration, complete the form, and pay your fee. The registration fee this season has been increased to $50 for new and returning players. We've kept the fee the same for many years, but due to increased costs we've made the painful decision to increase the fee in order to maintain the level of charitable giving we've achieved in season's past. 

Registration for returning players will begin on February 6th (Monday), at 9 am and will remain open until 9 pm that night. Returning player registration will be only for ONE DAY. The system will be set to ONLY allow returning players from last season to register during this timeframe. If you are a returning player and already have a league apps account, be sure to use your current login (otherwise the system thinks you are a new player and you will be blocked). We also recommend you update your profile with any changes to your email or address.


If you are a new player, you can go into the system in advance and create an account (click on "sign up" in the very top right corner). This will make your actual registration for the season go very quickly when your time comes.
New players can begin registering on February 7th (Tuesday), at 9 am. Returning players will also be able to register during this phase until the cap is reached.
Registration will stay open until the player limit is reached.
PLEASE NOTE: The system should block new players from registering during returning player registration, but just in case, we will do an audit that night of returner player registration. Any new player who did not wait until Tuesday will be notified, deleted from the system, and their registration fee refunded. They may then register again during the New Player Registration period.

As always, teams and players become official on a first registered, first served basis. The first player to register for each team should create the team (please do this as early as possible), and then players will either sign up on a team or as a free agent. Teams will achieve official team status once 10 players have registered. The first 54 teams to reach team status will be allowed into the league. Any team that does not reach team status will be dissolved and the players will be reassigned to other teams (or teams may be combined). It is important for returning players to register as early as possible to be sure that teams can remain the same if you would like to keep your team.

If you are glad to join any team or do not have a certain team, please register as a free agent.If you are a new or returning player and have already talked to a team about joining them, be sure to register for THAT team. 
If you are a new player, welcome to Stonewall Bocce! All free agents will be assigned to teams that have open spaces. If you are a free agent and have a special request (i.e., you are joining with a friend and want to be on the same team, you have a preference to join a particular team if they have an opening, etc.), please email commissioner Devin ( when you register to let us know. We cannot guarantee requests, but we will make every effort.
Captains: We will notify you when we assign a free agent to your team, but will not be able to seek approval for each one prior to assignments. We may also be able to accommodate captain requests for particular free agents if we receive them quickly. We will move very quickly to assign free agents once registration is complete so please let us know ASAP.

If you have any questions, your Pit Crew is happy to help. General questions can be sent to Chris ( registration questions can be sent to Devin (

Thanks! We hope you will join us again!
