There is generally a three-week registration period for each sport. All interested teams must submit a completed and signed roster along with the appropriate league fees to the Adult Sports Office before the registration deadline. In the event too many teams meet the registration deadline, the following priority system will be utilized to select those teams with the highest priority ratings.
Carlsbad resident team: A team consisting of 100 percent Carlsbad residents on the original roster will receive top priority within the program. Proof of residency must be provided at the request of the Adult Sports Office.
Carlsbad business or organization sponsored team: A Carlsbad business or church must pay the leagues fees for the team (with a company check) and the original roster must consist of no less than 70 percent Carlsbad residents. Proof of residency must be provided at the request of the Adult Sports Office.
Returning team or Carlsbad business or organization sponsored team (with less than 50% residents): A team that participated in the previous season in Carlsbad and submits a roster containing at least 50 percent of the original and added players from last season, or has less than 50% Carlsbad residents with a Carlsbad sponsor. Proof of residency must be provided at the request of the Adult Sports Office.
New/remaining teams: A team that does not fit any of the above classifications will be considered priority 4.
