Men's 21 and Over League:
Our adult men’s league is moderately competitive but is primarily for fun. The primary emphasis however, is still on sportsmanship and friendly competition. All participants of our code of conduct will be adhered to throughout the season regardless of venue and players, coaches and spectators will be subject to our zero tolerance policy.
Registration is by team (team manager will need to log into our online registration site www.bhrec.org/register and sign up for your team.
Additional forfeit fees will be collected on the day of the team/manager meeting which will be mandatory for league participation and take place two weeks before the season begins. Forfeit fees are refunded after the season if no forfeits have been committed. $40 is due per team, per game for referee and scorekeepers.
