MOST POPULAR

What is Gameday?

Gameday is an adult sports organization created in 2012 to give adults 21+ in the Treasure Valley a fun way to connect with other like-minded individuals. We have friends, families, couples, coworkers, individuals, and everyone in between that participate in our leagues.

 

I’m terrible at sports and just want to meet people. Is that possible?

It's why we call our leagues "Social Sports"! The social part is far more important than winning. Get out there, have fun, and win or lose, you can still make friends and have a brew after games.

 

How much are leagues and how long do they last?

We make pricing simple at Gameday. All leagues are $40, except bowling. That includes everything, from FREE team shirts, team photos, online schedules/standings, official Gameday staff at every league night, and all equipment.

All leagues are 6 weeks, with an additional week of playoffs for all of our sports leagues (Flag Football, Kickball, Volleyball).

 

Am I too young/old?

We only accept players at our events or leagues that are a min. of 21 years of age. Although we don’t have an age limit, we encourage all current or future participants to be in tune with their own physical capabilities or limitations.

 

When do leagues start?

We have opportunities to participate year-round. View our upcoming leagues here to begin your search for a league that fits your schedule or interests.

 

What if I don’t have a full team?

You can always register as a group or individual. For groups, simply sign on your own, then invite the rest of your group to register (via the “Invite Friends” link).  For individuals, we’ll place you on a team as soon as we find out if there is a spot!

 

When do we receive our team shirts?

Team shirts are given out at the 2nd week of games. If you register after the league begins, you’ll receive your shirts within 2 weeks of your registration date.

 

REGISTRATION

 

What does it cost?

$40 for all sports except bowling. That includes everything, from FREE team shirts, team photos, online schedules/standings, official Gameday staff at every league night, and all equipment.

All leagues are 6 weeks, with an additional week of playoffs for all of our sports leagues (Flag Football, Kickball, Volleyball).

 

What should I expect as a captain?

Being a captain is easy as pie. Unlike other recreational leagues, you’re not required to front the full team fee, collect cash/checks, or the worst part – getting signatures from every player!

Instead, you can enter your roster online with just an email for each player, enabling them to pay online, pick their shirt size, and view their team schedule.

 

Once you’ve sent invites to your teammates, they’ll be prompted to choose a shirt size.  We order shirts 1 week prior to the league’s start date, so if they haven’t accepted their spot by then, i.e. chosen their size, they’ll receive the suggested size at registration.

 

When do I know if I have a spot?

Team registrations are automatically confirmed, unless you are waitlisted. For individual registrations, we usually try to give notice at least one week prior to the league start date, but this can be sooner or later depending on the openings in a particular league.

 

SHIRTS

 

When do we receive our team shirts?

Team shirts are given out at the 2nd week of games. If you register after the league begins, you’ll receive your shirts within 2 weeks of your registration date.

 

What size are the shirts?

Our shirts are uni-sex, 50/50 cotton tees and come in sizes from Small up to 3XL. Wondering if they’re comfy?

“I’ve had this same shirt for 2 years now, whether it’s going to the gym, racquetball, whatever. Still holds up and still fits like when I first got it.”

 

Can we have our own logo?

Absolutely. Please no profanity or graphics your mom wouldn’t be proud of.

 

Can we get blank shirts on which to print our company logo?

Sure thing! We’ll deliver blank shirts to your first game. That way you can have them printed in time for your second game and team photos in Week 2.

 

LEAGUES

 

What sports does Gameday offer?

Gameday currently offers Kickball but we're working on bringing back some of your favs!

 

Do you have options with less time commitment?

We regularly host tournaments throughout the year, but most of our leagues are 6 weeks, a fraction relative to other options in the valley (10-15 weeks min).

 

What do teams win?

All league champs receive a sport specific award as well. At some locations, a local bar partners with us as well and offers up a bar tab to winners!

Check out Champs Swag by sport here.

 

How do I know if my team made playoffs?

Typically the top 4 teams make playoffs (although this can occasionally varying depending on league size).

 

Substitutes

Teams may have up to 2 substitutes per game. Substitutes may be individuals from a game that just finished or players brand new to Gameday Sports Leagues. Players new to Gameday MUST sign the waiver before participating.

 

PAYMENT

 

When is my team/individual fee due?

When registering as a team, you (the captain) are only required to pay for your individual spot. After you’ve registered, you can add teammates by inviting them via email, where they can accept their spot after they’ve paid. Invited players are NOT rostered players. Rostered = paid. If you have not paid after the first week a $5 late fee will be added to your player account. 

 

What if my teammates haven’t paid by the first week?

Good question! One week before the league begins, if you don’t have the minimum number of teammates needed for a team, we’ll email to find out your team’s status one week prior the league’s start date.

Should you choose to have fewer than the maximum number of players on a field or court, you must play with the number of paid players and notify us via email (info@gamedayboise.com).

 

Below are the minimum players needed for a team, maximum on the court/field at a time, and how substitutes work:

 

Sport

Min # of Paid Players

(Min gender)

Max # of Players on Field/Court

(Max gender)

Roster Limit

(Paid Players Only)

Bowling

4   (2 men, 2 women)

6   (max 3 men)

Flag Football

6   (2 men, 2 women)

8   (max 5 men)

12

Indoor Kickball

6   (2 men, 2 women)

8   (max 5 men)

12

Indoor Volleyball

4   (2 men, 2 women)

6   (max 3 men)

10

Outdoor Kickball

7   (3 men, 3 women)

10  (max 6 men)

15

Sand Volleyball

3   (1 man, 1 woman)

4   (max 2 men)

6

 

 

Can you give an example of how that works?

Sure thing. Let’s pretend Jane Smith signs up an Indoor Volleyball team. She needs to have a minimum of 4 paid players by the first week (min. 2 men, 2 women) to play. If she chooses to keep her team at 4, she cannot have any substitutes during league play, her team must always play with 4 (including playoffs)

 

John Smith also signs up an Indoor Volleyball team. He has 6 paid players, so he’ll be able to field a full team AND use the 2 substitutes per game rule (see above). Effectively, John can have 8 players on a given night, although if he has two subs, his paying teammates might be a little peeved!

John has a maximum of 3 men on the court at a time and is not allowed ANY substitutes during playoffs.

 

Finally, John Doe also has his own Indoor Volleyball team. John has played with Gameday before and wants to make sure he has enough ROSTERED (paid) players in case his team makes playoffs and a teammate can’t make the game. He is limited to 10 players on his roster.

 

Paying by check/cash

Gameday does not accept cash or check payments at the field; However, we do accept company checks for team payments. These can be mailed to Gameday Sports Leagues, PO Box 2345 Boise, ID 83701. All check payments must be received by your first league date.

 

Invoices

If your company is paying for the full team fee, just give us a call at 208.991.7494 and we’ll take care of it for you. Invoices for teams can be printed from your Player Page (must be logged in).

 

Refunds/League Cancellations

As of January 1, 2015, we do NOT give refunds for team or individual cancellations within 1 week of a league’s start date.

If a league is cancelled for any reason, all payments will be refunded in full to players & captains.

 

SCHEDULING

 

When do we receive our game schedule?

The schedule for your first game is emailed a minimum of 3 days prior to your league start date. The full schedule comes out the day after your first game.

 

Schedule Requests

Email office@gamedayleagues.com. Most likely, you’re not the only one with a request for a game time but we do our best to accommodate requests. Hint: Individual date requests are easier to grant than full league schedules.
