This Spring, AASA is experimenting with a new system for “splitting a shirt.”
Shirt-splits — that is, two players sharing a registration — have been an informal AASA tradition for years. Usually this means one player is able to play one weeknight (say, Monday), and the other partner takes the other (that would be Wednesday). The key is, you've only purchased one spot. If you want to play together, you'll both need full registrations.
The realities of insurance issues makes it more important than ever that every player is a registered AASA member. It’s also a safety concern for the league: We want to know who is participating and how to locate them if needed.
Over the past few years, we have had to insist that the shirt split be made known to league organizers, and that both partners were registered members. But it’s been hard to keep track of, and we haven’t had an “official” policy. Our new site now lets us handle this in a better-organized fashion.
How to do it:
So, for our M/W and T/Th 7 v. 7 Co-ed leagues, there’s a simple procedure:
This shirt-split system doesn’t apply to our M/W Women’s league, which allows players to register independently for Mondays or Wednesdays, if desired. No "partner" is needed -- if you can't play both nights, simply register for the night you are available!
