Fall Session Sign Ups Teams can sign up for the Fall Session at any time. Consider this your first reminder. You’ll also receive a reminder in the mail, some additional emails and even a phone call, if I don’t hear back from you. If you’re not going to play, it’s easier to just say “No Thanks, maybe next time” right from the start (and after I stop crying), I’ll make myself a reminder to check with you again for the spring. The Fall session will start right after Labor day for most divisions. There will be more large divisions with Top Point teams to Citywide, as there were so few this summer. Call, email or reserve anytime. The new season will start early, right after the finals, so the 3rd week in Sept in most cases.
