HOW TO REGISTER A TEAM IN THE PIT



FOR THE PLAYERS ...           ... BY THE PLAYERS



The following information is designed to walk new teams through the process of registering a team on the PIT Football website


Registering a Team:

Step 1:

  • Login to the website. If you do not have a username and password, then register as a player first by clicking on "Sign Up" on the top right hand corner of the homepage. For more information on signing up as a player click here: Player Registration

Step 2:
  • After you are logged in you will see a link entitled "Register Team" at the top right hand corner of the homepage. Click on that link and follow the instructions.
  • Alternatively, if you have registered a team in a previous season of the PIT the link will instead be entitled "My Teams". Click that link, and then under your "My Teams" page you will see a link for "register another team".

Step 3:
  • On the team signup page you have the option to customize your team. The following options are available:
    • Customize your team name. Note if your team has played in a previous season you must select the team from the drop down list provided under the heading "Team from previous season". For teams that have played previously in the PIT if you do not complete this step you will be given a message stating that the team name has already be used. If you select a team from a previous season you will have the option of changing the original custom settings for that team and adding a new roster for that season.
    • Select a team contact. Note your team contact must have a valid email address and phone number entered into the website.
    • Select a division. Note the PIT league reserves the right to move teams up or down in divisions based on team calibre.
    • Submit a team logo. If you do not select a team logo the PIT league will do so for you so you might as well customize the logo to your liking!
    • Submit your team jersey colors. Note if your team does not have jerseys all players must be wearing the same color shirt. By submitting team colors it allows teams to prepare for the possibility of changing jerseys if both teams have the same color. Team colors such as "destruction", "cheez whiz", and "Dustin Byfuglien sucks" are strongly encouraged.

Step 4:
  • Click on "Create"

Step 5:
  • The PIT website will send you a confirmation email to the email address you entered as part of your player signup. You will have to click on the link in the email to confirm your team. If you do not receive an email ensure that you have entered the correct email address in your player profile, and if so, check your spam filter. Hotmail and gmail accounts are particularly susceptible to having league information being placed in the spam filter.

Step 6:
  • Any team registered on the PIT website will show up under the "Teams of the PIT" link on the homepage sidebar. Teams will be added to the "Standings" page on the sidebar once registration fees have been received.
  • Note teams are only considered registered for a season if:
    • 1. The team is signed up on the website
    • 2. The team's registration fees have been paid for in full.

Only the team captain (player who registered the team) can undertake the following tasks:


Adding Players to Your Team:

After creating your team, you can add players to your roster. Players are required to be added to the roster for the following reasons:

  • Players who are on the roster are covered by league insurance in case of injury
  • Team rosters are used to judge team calibre and thus divisional placement
  • Players are required to play a minimum number of games to be eligible for playoffs (two games for indoor, six games for outdoor). The only way games are tracked are through the rosters on the website.
  • The accuracy of both team and player statistics can be tracked
  • Teams who use players not on the current roster are subject to defaulting any games due to the participation of illegal players. Any defaulted game as the result of using illegal players will result in a team fine, automatic loss, minus two points in the standings, and possible player suspensions.
  • Note: a completed roster must be online prior to the start of the scheduling of games (normally one week in advance of the season start date). Any players added to the roster after this time must be approved by the league administration before the player can be added to the roster. If approval for roster additions is not obtained the team is subject to a default for using an illegal player.

Step 1:
  • Ensure that the player you want to add has signed up on the PIT website. Note: You cannot add a player to your roster unless that player has signed up on the website, has provided a valid email address, and has confirmed their email address. Players who have signed up in a previous season do not have to sign up again as their names will be kept in the PITFootball database.

Step 2:
  • Click on the "My Teams" link on the top right of the homepage to edit your team.
    Alternatively, you can also click on the "Standings" page or "Teams of the PIT" page and select your team.

Step 3:
  • Begin to type the name of the player to be added to your team in the text box next to the "Add Player" icon. Note that the predictive text feature will create a drop-down menu option so that you can select the name of the player you want to add. Again, the players name will only be dynamically created if they have previously registered on the site.

Step 4:
  • Click on the "Add Player Button"

Step 5:
  • Continue the same steps until your entire roster has been added. Players will now be displayed on all future game cards and the appropriate statistics accrued by each player during each season of play will collected. Note: Once the roster deadline has passed only league administrators can add players to the team.


Deleting Players From Your Roster:

  • If a player is no longer on your roster you may either delete a player (if they have not yet been credited with a game played) or "disable"*** a player (if they have been credited with one or more games played).

    ***Note: Figuratively not literally


Deleting Players Without Credit For A Game Played:

Step 1:

  • Click on the "My Teams" link on the top right of the homepage to edit your team.
    Alternatively, you can also click on the "Standings" page or "Teams of the PIT" page and select your team.

Step 2:
  • Click on the "Remove Player" icon next to the player's name on your roster that is to be deleted from your team. If you do not see the "Remove Player" icon that is an indication that the player has been credited with at least one game played. You cannot delete the player from your roster but you can "disable" that player (see Deleting Players With Credit For A Game Played).


Deleting Players With Credit For A Game Played:

Step 1:

  • Click on the "My Teams" link on the top right of the homepage to edit your team.
    Alternatively, you can also click on the "Standings" page or "Teams of the PIT" page and select your team.

Step 2:
  • Click on "Edit Roster"

Step 3:
  • Under the column labeled "Enabled" UN-check the box next to the player name you wish to "disable"

Step 4:
  • Click on "Save Changes". Note: Any "disabled" player will no longer show up on game cards. You may "re-enable" by following the aforementioned steps and rechecking the "Enabled" box next to the players name. "Disabled" players will be "greyed-out" on the roster indicating that they are no longer active members of your team.


Adding Jersey Numbers:

  • Teams will be required to submit jersey numbers (if applicable). The addition of the jersey number feature will allow for more accurate collection of player statistics.

Step 1:
  • Ensure that you have the correct jersey number of each player on your team. Also ensure that your entire roster has been added for the current season.

Step 2:
  • Click on the "My Teams" link on the top right of the homepage to edit your team.
    Alternatively, you can also click on the "Standings" page or "Teams of the PIT" page and select your team.

Step 3:
  • Click on "Edit Roster"

Step 4:
  • Type in the jersey number beside the appropriate player

Step 5:
  • Click on "Save Changes"


Insurance Forms:

  • Please remember that each player must fill out an insurance waiver prior to playing in their first game in the PIT.
  • Our insurance runs from November 1st to October 31st of each year. As a consequence a new waiver form must be filled out each Fall season (or the first season played during that time-span). Players need only fill out one insurance waiver for that duration of time and are thus covered in subsequent seasons until the following November (for example, if you fill out a waiver form in the Fall you are covered for the Winter, Spring, and Summer seasons but must fill out a new waiver form in the fall. If your first season is in the Winter, you are covered for the Spring and Summer seasons but must also fill out a new waiver form in the fall.
  • Insurance forms can be found on the menu sidebar on the PIT Football website by clicking on the "Forms & Files" link on the PIT website or here: Insurance Forms
