UPDATED ON 2/24/20
The SPRING 2020 league sign-up and payment information is about to be updated! The deadline to sign up for the upcoming season is Monday April 27th, three months away. Don’t hesitate to sign your team up early to make sure there are spots in the league on the night you want to play in. The SPRING off-season is incredibly short so teams that wait until they’re eliminated from the playoffs might not have a spot in their preferred leagues! Here are important dates you need to know about the upcoming season.
Sign-ups Open – SUNDAY MARCH 1st
Early Payment Deadline – MONDAY APRIL 6th
Draft League Payment Deadline – WEDNESDAY APRIL 22nd
Draft League Combines – SATURDAY APRIL 25th
Draft Week – APRIL 25th – 30th
Team Payment Deadline – MONDAY APRIL 27th
SPRING 2020 Tip-Off – MONDAY MAY 4th
Be sure to note the Payment Deadline. All league fees are due before the end of the day on MONDAY April 27th in order to get on the league schedules. Teams that have not paid by 4/27/20 will not be placed on the schedule for the league they were holding a spot in.
Again, all league fees are due by 4/27/20.

Q – Are any of these FAQs different?
A – Mostly unchanged in 2020 so far!
Q – You got a ‘burbs update for us?
A – How the hell are there no good ten pin bowling alleys out here? Ever since they tore down Lanes & Games (RIP to the Mecca) its impossible to find a good bowling league. If you have any leads on them west of the city let me know! You can still find me at C.A.C. 3 days a week (Mon/Tue/Wed). I should be doing work while I’m there, so pester me at every opportunity, through email (CACBasketball@gmail.com), text (617-921-7851) and twitter (@CACBasketball) to make sure I’ve got your sign-up and that you’re good to go for the SPRING season!
Q – Any league fees changes?
A – Come on, you know that’s a once a decade thing! Last season the individual Draft League Fees were raised to $175 (from $150). For our legion of players that run in more than 1 draft league, we are once again bringing back the $50 multi draft league discount this season on your first two leagues. That means you didn’t pay any more in the Spring than you have previously, it’s still $300 to play in 2 leagues. Team fees were raised for the first time in 5 years in the Winter, but there is no change to them this season. They hold steady at $1500 for 5v5 leagues and $1,000 for 4v4 leagues. Our Early Pay Discount is still being run, so don’t miss out on your chance to save $100 (deadline: 4/6/20) .
Q – If a League doesn’t happen, what steps do I take to get a refund?
A – If a league doesn’t have enough players or teams, all money will be refunded within a week of the 5/4/20 deadline. Email me (CACBasketball@gmail.com) if there are any questions.
Q – How much are jerseys?
A – Players new to the league need to pay an additional $10 per jersey when picking them up at CAC (215 First St – Cambridge). All players are required to wear CAC jerseys to games. For anyone who wants to purchase an additional or new jersey, the cost is also $10. This helps us control inventory (we order thousands every year) and help us avoid raising rates in the near future. Captains are able to pick-up jerseys at any time
Q – I’ve been playing for a few seasons now, can you just hook me up with a free jersey?
A – Sorry, to control inventory and avoid raising league fees for everyone, anyone who needs a jersey needs to pay $10.
Q – I constantly ruin/lose/leave my jersey behind at the gym. What can you do for me?
A – I can offer you some very helpful tips!
- Don’t lost your shit! I know, I know, I’m a habitual shit loser, the struggle is real.
- Make sure that you wash your jersey in cold water, not hot
- Do not put your jersey in the dryer
- Ask Alexa where your jersey is. She knows everything else I do in the house so probably heard where I took it off last.
- Don’t have kids! They take all the space where you used to put your shit, take your shit when you finally find a spot to put it and throw it in the trash or out the car window. It’s all the kids fault
The dryer (and kids!) is the cause of every ruined CAC jersey ever. This will never change. Simply hang your jersey up to dry (or ask your parental unit/significant other to do it for you) and it will last for years and years. I still have some that I have deluded myself into thinking I can squeeze into from 2005. I wear them at Wednesday pickup if you don’t believe me, check the live-stream! https://www.cacbasketball.com/live-stream/
Q – I want to pay as an individual, can I do that online?
A – If you’re playing in one of our many Draft leagues (A Draft, Over-30 Legends Drafts, B Draft, Saturday Draft, 5v5 Drafts, Franchise League) or you’re signing up as an individual for one of the leagues that are forming Free Agent Teams you are able to pay online! In order to hold your spot for any of the Draft leagues, you simply must pay before the draft league payment deadline (SPRING 2020: 4/22/20). You can do so online or in person at C.A.C.
Q – Follow-up question that is asked every season, so I can now pay part of my team fee online instead of paying through my captain, right?
A – That’s still incorrect, but thank you for asking that very important question. If you are part of a team that is entering a non-draft league, someone must pay the full balance of the league fee online (or in person at C.A.C.) in order to get the discount, we do not accept partial payments for teams.
Q – One of my teammates is on staff or is a member of the gym, how can we make sure to get the Early Payment Discount?
A – Please be sure to email CACBasketball@gmail.com in advance of the 4/6/20 deadline to make sure the correct team balance is paid. Basketball stat-keepers can comp one team entry ($150 value) for the SPRING 2020 season. As with every other team, the entire balance must be paid in full all at one time to receive the discount. The price will be slightly different, but still needs to be paid all at once to receive the discount.
Q – I’ve paid for my leagues online, when I come in to pick-up jerseys for my new team members, will the front desk know I’ve paid?
A – Yes! Online payments streamline interactions with the front desk and make the process easier on everyone.
In addition, printing out your confirmation email (automatically sent after purchase) and bringing it to Cambridge Athletic Club (C.A.C. – 215 First St – Cambridge MA) will make the process even easier when you pick up jerseys. Team captains that pick up jerseys for their team will be charged an additional $10 for each new player that needs a jersey when they pick them up.
Q – I want to pay before the season starts (5/4/20), but after the Early Pay Discount Deadline (SPRING 20: APRIL 6th), will I still get the discount if I pay online?
A – First, please note that we will not be accepting league fees during or after the first week of the season. All team league fees are due by 4/27/20 in order to get on league schedules. Teams that have not paid by Monday 4/27/20 will not be placed on the schedule for the league they were holding a spot in and for the people in the back, all league fees are due by, 4/27/20!
Second, If you pay after April 6th, the discount will not be applied to the league fees, even if you pay online. That means if it’s 12:01 AM on Tuesday April 7th, the discount will NOT be available.
Q – What if email/call/text/tweet/facebook msg/insta/snap chat you on Monday night April 6th during the 7th inning stretch while at the Red Sox game before the payment deadline asking for an extension and I don’t hear back? Can I still get the discount if I pay the next day or later in the week?
A – Look, no one is going to Sox games this year, don’t kid yourself. Plus, if it’s the 7th inning stretch its well past midnight. Did you know that you don’t HAVE to wait until the last possible second to pay! You can pay anytime between right now (right this second!) and April 6th. To take advantage of the $100 discount, all league fees must be paid before midnight on Monday April 6th, either online or in person at C.A.C. (215 First Street – Cambridge MA). CAC closes at 11 PM on Mondays, so if you want to pay in person, please plan accordingly.
Q – In the past you’ve let teams on the schedule without paying by the deadline, can my team wait a week or two to pay?
A – No. The April 27th deadline is a hard deadline and teams must pay by then to get into the leagues. Even if it screws with my division alignments and I suddenly have 3 with an odd number of teams and dreaded bye weeks, no more Mr. Nice Guy (and Josh will kill me if I let that happen again).
Q – I’m able to pay the team league fee online, but I’m not the team captain, can I do that?
A – Yes, someone other than the team captain can pay the league fee for the team. To avoid confusion and confirm the fee is taken care of, please send an email to CACBasketball@gmail.com to confirm your team name and captain’s name after processing the order.
Q – I paid the fee online, is the spot for my team saved?
A – You must first check with me (CACBasketball@gmail.com) to make sure there is room in the league you want to sign-up in, before paying the league fee. As always, in order to hold a team spot, a team name and full roster list (names and emails) are also needed to hold it.
Q – A “Billing Information” pop-up appears when I log-in, do I have to store my information online?
A – No, the only time you must enter your billing information is at check-out.
Q – How many times have you had to watch Frozen 2??
A – Why would you even ask that? Who are you? SHOW YOURSELF!!
