Players will need to sign-up specifically to compete in the East Coast Championship using the Championship Team Number provided by their team captain.  This Championship Team Number is given to the team captain from the league administrator once the team commits to participate in the East Coast Championship.


  • Players who participated in a specific division in the fall are eligible to participate with that team in the E.C.C. even if their minimum rating for the Spring 2023 team is higher.
  • A player may play on multiple teams in the E.C.C. as long as they are in different divisions.  No special scheduling will be afforded to these players so captains should plan accordingly with the number of players rostered for the E.C.C.
  • A player must be registered online for the E.C.C. before playing in an E.C.C. match.  Registration will remain open throughout the E.C.C.
