REGISTRATION

I just discovered you guys? Is it too late for me to sign up a team?
We always have new leagues starting and current leagues with extra capacity. Give us a call you might be surprised how fast we can get you on the field.

 

How much does it cost to play?

Cost varies by sport and by season.  Here's the average cost per team player, per season:

Softball: $54 per player

Kickball: $54 per player

Bowling: $48 per player

Flag Football: $54 per player

Volleyball: $54 per player

Dodgeball: $54 per player


I just moved to Louisville and I don't know enough people to put together a team but I want to play, what should I do?
Sign up as an individual and LXC will place you on a team with other individual sign-ups. It's a great way to meet new friends! We compile the teams and then notify you about who your other teammates are and when you'll be playing.

I know a ton of people who want to play but I am not sure of being a Captain. I am nervous asking people for money and also I am scared of not being able to get enough players from week to week.
Being a Captain can sound intimidating however Underdog makes it as easy as catching an infield pop fly! We have tools like TeamPayer that allows you to collect money electronically, and you can use your Team RSVP tool to see who can commit to each game on your schedule. If all that seems too much for you, ask a teammate to sign up the team and take the reins instead!

 

Inviting players to your team once you sign up as a captain

Once your team is signed up you wil be prompted to invite players to your team via email or Facebook.  Keep in mind the following when inviting players and telling players how to accept:

A.)The email invite could hit their spam folder instead of their inbox,

B.) You can not send or receive Facebook invites through mobile.

C.) Using an outdated browser could cause you not to be able to log in or get to the right page

D.) Players could have duplicate accounts and need to merge them before seeing the invite. 

 

 

SIGNING UP AS AN INDIVIDUAL

 

What is an individual sign-up?

We call them Indy sign-ups. It means that you don’t have a team to play with, but still want to play a sport. You sign up by yourself and we place you on what we call "Indy Teams" with other people that have signed up singly or in small groups or with a team that needs a few extra players.  Many of our past individual teams stick together season after season, so it's often a good way to meet some new friends!  When signing up as an individual only your payment info is required, you will not be charged until you are placed on a team.  You will have a better chance of gettting placed if you are available for multiple leagues.  Use the comment section upon signing up to let us know your other availability.  

 

I’m not sure if I should play, I’m not that good…

There is absolutely no experience necessary to play in our leagues and we offer different levels of intensity for most sports.

 

My friend and I both want to play and sign-up together, but only if we’re on the same team, can you make that happen?

Of course! At the end of your sign up process you can invite friends to join you by emailing a link which will group you with your friends to be teamed together. The more you invite, the better the chance of placement! If everyone that intends to play, signs up we are usually able to place you together 99% of the time otherwise we will notify you if that it is not the case!

 

I’m on a team, but my teammates are too serious/not serious enough/want to practice 3 times a week/only ever let me play catcher.

If you have issues with the team that you’re on, please give us a call or send us an email. We’ll see what we can do to help you out.

 

I want to play, but I may have to miss a game because of work/wedding/etc.

If you have to miss a game, that’s not a huge problem. We put extra people on the team as we realize that everyone can’t make every week. However, if you need to miss more than half the season, it’s probably best to pick another league.

 

Why are there so many people on my Indy team?

We try to put extra people on your team as we realize that people can’t make it every week. So, we’ll put 8 people on your 6 person volleyball team to help make sure your team doesn’t forfeit.

 

Can you team me with only hot single people?

LXC is committed to providing a safe and fun environment for playing sports.  We are not a dating agency. 

 

Our softball team isn’t good, but my friend is really good, can I bring him along and let him play to make us better?

No. You can feel free to bring subs with you if your team might be short, but just bringing your buddy with you to play isn’t fair to the rest of the team. You’re taking away playing time from people who paid to play.

 

Can I sign up and play on an existing team, but not an Indy team?

We don’t place players on established teams or maintain a “Free Agent” list.


What if I really like my teammates, can I keep them? 

Of course….you can always sign up for another season as a full team after your initial Indy team. Just choose someone to be the Captain and sign up when the next season’s leagues open up!

 

I signed up as an Indy, now what?

When you signup as an individual we place you on the list of people interested in that league.  Rather than take your money upfront, we wait until we can guarantee you a spot in the league and when we get enough people interested, we then offer you a spot.  At that time we ask for your confirmation and payment to secure the spot on the team.  Due to the nature of signups it could be a few weeks after your signup before the Indy team is ready to be formed.  Our goal is to get enough people roughly 1-2 weeks prior to the season beginning and offer spots 2-5 days before the league starts. 

 


LEAGUES

I'm not the greatest athlete, but I'd like to come out and play with you guys... will the leagues be too competitive for me?
No worries.  Almost every league has a great diversion of teams so you will not be out of place.


Your refs and umps are so witty and handsome...can I ask them out on a date?
Proceed at your own risk.

Can LXC host Company Events, like our summer picnic or holiday party?
Yes! LXC has lots of experience running corporate events. Why spend your time trying to learn out how to run a Volleyball tournament when we have been doing them for years? Why spend your energy and resources starting a flag league for your corporation when we've already got everything you need? Just give us a call or email info@LXCSports.com and we'll discuss the scope and size of your upcoming event! 

Can I work for LXC on the Field?
We are always looking for great new refs, umps, and site staff to join the LXC team. Check out our Employment page and submit your info! Just don’t be hurt if we say you will be better off as a player than a referee.

 


PAYMENT

When is my team fee due?
The team fee is due the day after your first game. All leagues also require a deposit ranging from $45 to $100 before you can register for a league.  If you are an individual your pre-payment is required to confirm your spot in the league.


$45-$100 Deposit (for a Team Sign Up)? – Is it possible I could lose that deposit?
You only lose your deposit if you cancel your team less than 5 days before the start of the season.

My Teammates stiffed me, one left town and the other paid me with expired gift cards. Can you just call them and get their money?
No. Next time try using TeamPayer at the beginning of the season to prevent any payment issues between friends.

 

What is TeamPayer?

TeamPayer is a way to help your teammates pay for their team fee without you having to worry about collecting cash or checks. For more info on TeamPayer, click here.

Can I pay by personal check?
No. Only if it’s a company check and it’s mailed to the office – LXC Staff never accept checks or cash at the field.

So can I get an invoice to get my company to pay for some or all of my team?
Absolutely! – Invoices and receipts can be printed out from your Player Page.

 

 

SCHEDULING

 

When can I see a schedule for my league?

Generally we do a schedule for the first week of the league about 2-5 days prior to the start date. After the first day of the league, we’ll put together and post a schedule for the full season.

 

Why the two separate schedule release dates?

We do the first week before the rest for a few reasons.

  1. Schedule Requests: Doing it this way gives teams a little longer to put in requests for the schedule.
  2. Competitive Balance: Doing it after the first week gives us the chance to gauge the skill level of all the teams so that we can schedule them more competitively.
  3. Adding Teams: Waiting on the full season schedule gives teams the chance to sign up a little late. By only scheduling the 1st week, we can add them without going back and changing all of your game times to accommodate them.

 

Can I send in schedule requests?

Sure! If there’s a specific time that is tougher for your team to make, send us an email and let us know. We charge $5 per game that we are able to accommodate the request. For example you state that you want the earliest games all season - if we are able to schedule you for the earliest games every week for 6 weeks we add $30 to your overall team fee. We’ll do our best to accommodate it whenever possible. Please keep in mind though that your team probably isn’t the only team with that same request, so it may not always be possible. Also, once the playoffs come around, schedule requests become harder to accommodate.  Please email your requests to info@lxcsports.com.

 

I forgot to send in my schedule request and the full season schedule is posted….can you bail me out?

Sometimes. Send us an email and let us know what you need and we’ll look into it. After the full season schedule is posted we do charge $30 game change fee. In general it’s easier to move one game time than multiple ones, but not even that is guaranteed.  Please email your requests to info@lxcsports.com.

 

We can’t make a certain week at all; Can we just get a bye week and make up that game later?

Sometimes. Generally if a league fills up a make-up is not possible as our field space is maxed out.

 

What holidays do you skip?

Due to field time constraints, we can’t skip every day that is considered a holiday.

 

We’ll always skip: New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Super Bowl Sunday, Valentine’s Day, Easter Sunday, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day Weekend, Halloween, Thanksgiving Day (and weekend following), Christmas Eve, and Christmas.

  

This season says we get 7 guaranteed games but some teams in the league are scheduled for 8 games. Why do some teams play more games than others?

Occasionally with odd-numbered team leagues we need to schedule additional games for teams. In true LXC fashion we always try to give an extra game to what we consider the worst teams in the league. So if you didn’t get an extra game you should see it as a compliment that you are not considered one of the worst teams.

 

How do you determine who makes the playoffs?

In general we try to have as many teams as possible make the playoffs (and yes, in some leagues you may even make the playoffs with a losing record). Basically it’s never a good idea to assume you made the playoffs, and it’s never a good idea to assume you didn’t. The best thing to do is check the 1st week playoff schedule on the website a couple of days after the last game of your regular season. 

 

Do all teams make the playoffs?

Not in all leagues.  We do our best to get as many teams as possible in but sometimes field and time contraints do not allow it.

 


OTHER CORE LXC CONCEPTS

 

Practice

You can always practice and get better, but LXC never reserves field time for practice or schedules practices for your team.

 

Uniforms

If you are in a league with team uniforms, Underdog will bring those uniforms to your first game. You need to get us your sizes more than 5 days from the start of your league using the invite system on your Captain’s Page.


Locations

LXC does its best to have a league be on the same field or a consistent location the entire season. However league locations are subject to change upon field availabilit, especially with rainouts.  We always try and keep this to a minimum and let you know about additional fields  ahead of time. 

 

Sponsor Bar

Tin Roof in St. Matthews is the official sponsor bar of LXC Sports.  All LXC players receive $2 draft Bud Lights, $8 pitchers, and 25% off food.

 

Rainouts and cancelations

All rainouts will be re-scheduled.  No refunds will be given due to rainouts that extend a season passed what was originally expected.  As soon as a cancelation is determined all captains will be texted and all rostered players will be emailed.  We always do our best to have a game but there are times when playing may not be possible or safe.  We try to make the decision to cancel as soon as possible but will not cancel based on a forecast.  If there is a chance of rain close to game time the game may not be called until we see the rain is bad enough to prohibit play.    Below is a list of reasons your game could be canceled.

 

- Heavy rain and lightning leading up to game time and is not forecasted to stop

- Enough rain before game time to make the field unplayable, i.e. standing water or large extremely muddy areas.  In this case a determination on the field may not be made until the rain stops.

- Enough rain in past days to make field unplayalbe.  Sometimes if it rains several days in a row or really heavily the day before a game the field will not be repairable and games can be canceled.

- Heavy rain during a game that lasts for more than 10 minutes

- Lightning in the vacinity during a game
