How do Draft Leagues Work?
Draft leagues follow the popular fantasy sport format by giving coaches opportunities to draft players one after another in order to build their team. As a player, you will be entered into the draft pool and will be selected to a team the week prior to the start of the league.
All players will be asked to complete a player profile where the rank themselves on their skill set. All players should be as honest as possible to help ensure teams are balanced and league play is fun and fair. Immediately following the season, fellow players and coaches will give feedback on the players and adjustments to the players overall score will be made for future leagues.
The week before the league begins, all players are invitied to the Draft League social where the coaches formally invite players onto their team and introductions occur for the first time. This event is meant to be fun and will feature a full mock draft style setup including jerseys for draftees, a league commisioner overseeing the proceeding, plenty of adult beverages, and fun for all. Player participation is not required to play, but it is highly encouraged!
Once the teams are selected, the league play will begin with a first week formal scrimmage to help coaches meet their new players and work out roster kinks. This game will serve as a tie breaker for playoff scenarios so it does have some importance, but it also gives players and coaches an opportunity to have a fun first game with lower pressure to win. Following the initial scrimmage game, league play continues in the standard league format.
