I HAVE NEVER PLAYED THIS SPORT; WILL I STILL BE OK TO REGISTER AND PLAY?
Most of our leagues are recreational level, meaning beginners are welcome, as well as people that haven’t played sport in a long time. Each week as a new sport is introduced, we assume no one knows the rules yet. Our Event Hosts will teach you everything you need to know, and even help coach you throughout the season.
HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ON THE FIELD/COURT AND HOW MANY DO YOU SUGGEST WE PUT ON OUR ROSTER?
This sport requires 5 people on the field, minimum 2 females and 2 males. Ultimately you decide how many players are on your roster, but we would recommend about 8 to account for subs, and weeks when people can’t make it.
I AM HOPING TO REGISTER AS A TEAM, BUT I AM JUST GETTING IT ALL ORGANISED, WILL I MISS OUT?
Some leagues will sell out quickly, so you will need to be prepared ahead of time. If you like, you can soft reserve your team space for free by emailing us at [email protected] and we will notify you when the league is close to being sold out.
HOW MUCH IS IT TO REGISTER A TEAM?
A team registration is $890 for the 10 week competition. You can put down a $100 deposit for your team while you work out the funds with everyone. The rest of the fees will need to be paid by week 3 of the competition.
I DON’T HAVE A TEAM, I WANT TO REGISTER ON MY OWN, IS THAT POSSIBLE?
Yes, we offer individual registration as well. Click here to see the FAQ’s and more info about signing up to an individually formed team.
I DON’T HAVE A TEAM, I WANT TO REGISTER WITH A FRIEND(S), IS THAT POSSIBLE?
Yes, with our individual registration, you and your friends can join special teams that we open online for individual players to join. You can find out more here.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING, OR WEAR WHEN PLAYING THIS SPORT?
On the first night, teams will be asked to wear a black or white t-shirt. Teams can them opt to choose a team colour. Individual teams are given pre-allocated team colours. You can wear normal activewear.
You can wear normal runners, when playing Soccer or Hockey it is suggested you wear shin pads. Urban Rec will supply everything else you need.
HOW LONG DO THE GAMES LAST FOR?
In Multisport, each week is a 40 minute timeslot, how the games are structured varies by sport. If you or your team show up late those times might be shortened so lace up and be ready! You can view the sport rules for more detailed information on subbing players, and half time breaks etc.
WHAT SPORTS DO WE PLAY EACH SEASON IN MULTISPORT?
Depending on the amount of teams and weeks in the season, it can vary. Generally you will play most of these sports; Dodgeball, Basketball, Volleyball, Hockey, Benchball, Soccer, Netball. The sports will be announced at the beginning of the season, when the schedule is released.
CAN WE REQUEST WHICH SPORTS WE WANT TO PLAY?
You can ask, but it might not mean we can accomodate. The schedule is fluid, but our league manager has to maintain the integrity of the league. This means we might not be able to accomodate requests for sports.
DO THE TEAMS TRAIN OR PRACTICE?
Generally, no. Because it’s a recreational league, most teams show up on the night of play and maybe warm up together. If you and your team want to practice that’s completely a team decision, and not something we facilitate.
DO PLAYERS HAVE SET POSITIONS IN THE GAME?
Generally, no. This is of course a team decision, but mostly players change and alternate their positions. It makes it more fun within a recreational league to mix things up. We do not recruit or organise teams according to their preferred positions. You can organise that among yourselves.
