2020 Registration Results

3/12/2020

Our registration period for the 2020 season is complete. Through both some attrition and new teams, we’ve ended up with the same number of teams as last year, 63 teams with 628 players.

As you all know, we had proposed a new division on Saturday this year. Unfortunately, we did not have enough teams to support it. While we did have new teams, the attrition counterbalanced that, so we will not have the Saturday division. Though, those time slots will be available for rescheduling missed games.

You can view the team divisions placements online. You can find each division schedule in the navigation. And from the division schedule, you can select the schedule for an individual team.

Please double check your schedule. Most teams have one or two irregular timed matches scheduled so that we can fit it all in before Labor Day. We tried to avoid double headers this year by utilizing our new Saturday morning time slots.

Also, get a head start on rescheduling any matches your team will not be able to attend: www.beniciabocce.org/reschedule

Remember to get all your players to sign their waivers. If you are still looking for extra players, check out the BBL - Find a Team Facebook group. Leave a post there and you may get some bites.

Opening Day is (now) Sunday April 26. Get excited!


2020 Registration Date

1/1/2020

Time flies through the Holiday Season, but it’s time to start thinking about next year! Benicia Bocce League 2020 registration opens on Jan. 18th at 12pm. So, get your team together and ready, and have your Capo register that Saturday. (No more midnight registrations!) Registration will close on March 7th, at 12pm. But, don’t procrastinate!

Register online

For 2020, we’re planning to add a new division, Saturday mornings at 9am. We sadly had to turn away teams last year, and we don’t want to have to do that again if we have enough new sign ups.

As usual, when you register, you’ll pick the top three divisions you’d like to play in. Division placements will be made after registration closes, and will use the following priorities, with ties go to the first to register.

  1. Top priority goes to returning teams that are staying in their division.
  2. Second priority goes to returning teams that are moving to a different division.
  3. Third priority goes to new teams being formed by returning players.
  4. Last priority goes to completely new teams.

Prices this year remain the same, $350 per team, plus $10 per player. Team sizes are again from 6 to 12 players.

Here are some important dates for 2020:

  • Registration: Jan. 18, 12pm to Mar. 7, 12pm
  • Capo Meeting: Sat. Apr. 4, 10am
  • Opening Day: Sat. Apr. 25
  • Blackout dates
    • Memorial Day: May 22 - 25
    • Independence Day: July 1 - 7
  • Year End Celebration: Sat. Aug. 29
  • Playoffs: Sep. 9 - 19

We’ll send out another reminder for registration in a few weeks, with some more info for the season. But, put it down on your calendar, registration opens on Jan. 18th, and start getting organized. If you need extra players, or are an extra yourself, check out the BBL - Find a Team Facebook group. 

We’re looking forward to another great season.

Registration Results

3/5/2019

Registration is now closed, and we have placed teams into divisions.
Unfortunately, we could not fit all teams that applied into the league this year. We’re going to double check that all placed teams are able to accept their given time, which might allow a few more teams to be placed. Otherwise, we’ll send a full refund to teams we cannot accommodate. We’ll look into options for expanding capacity in the league next year, and give priority to those teams we had to turn away. Until then, we encourage you to check out our Find a Team Facebook group, as there may still be teams looking for players.

Capos, be sure you have the Capo Meeting on your calendar for Sat., March 30, at 10am in the Vet’s Hall. Drive around back to the lower parking lot. Both the capo and co-capo will need to be at the meeting. Also, make sure all your players have signed their waivers by that date. You can see progress on your application online, which you can find here.

We’re getting closer to the start of the season. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be finalizing the schedule, coordinating with the city to prepare the courts, and organizing the sheds. We’re also excited to announce that we will be holding a Bocce Clinic on Sat. April 13, for which we’ll send out more information shortly.

As always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

The league sends out news and announcements via an email newsletter. Sign up now to stay in the loop.
