REGISTRATION 101

 We care about our members and want you all to be equally knowledgeable about how registration goes. This guide is suitable for all divisions. If you have any questions specific to registration, please do not hesitate to contact the relevant coordinator (rec@tsvl.org or intermediate@tsvl.org or comp@tsvl.org) and/or operations (operations@tsvl.org).

TSVL Registration 101

  1. How do I know what information I need to register?
  • Registration is done through TeamSnap individually for all divisions. If you aren’t already in TeamSnap you will register with the platform when you are signing up for the Division.  It doesn't take long and everyone who is new must go go through it.  Be sure you input your information accurately, in particular the email you wish to use.  There are specific fields you’ll need to fill in when you register that vary somewhat between the Competitive, Intermediate, and Recreational Divisions. 
  • If you're a returning member/player from last season make sure you can access your TeamSnap account (i.e. that your username and password work) and that your profile and payment information are updated.  Most of your basic information will be included automatically, but check it for accuracy.  
  • NOTE: Competitive and Intermediate Division players are required to provide their team's and captain’s names. Please ensure these are entered with the correct spelling.
  1. Where do I find the registration link?
  • The easiest place to get the links is from tsvl.org/registration
  • They will also be shared to our email list.
  1. What happens when registration opens at 7:00 pm?

Strategies for everyone:

  • You can use a desktop or laptop computer, tablet or phone, but you will have more functionality and be faster on a desktop or laptop. We've heard some have had more issues using a tablet. Whatever you use, make sure you have a stable internet connection. 
  • Have all your information ready before you sit down. This is especially important if you're registering for someone else; get their information in advance (see Q1 above). 
  • Use the correct link provided to login to the TeamSnap registration portal.  It won't open until 7:00pm.
  • Be sure to include all the information requested on the registration/checkout page. Be complete and accurate. Teams/players have missed out by prioritizing speed over accuracy.
  • If whatever you’re registering for is SOLD OUT, immediately add yourself to the Waitlist. There is a lot of flux at the beginning of the season, particularly in the Recreational Division.
  • Registration for Winter 2024 does not require payment upfront. The League will issue you an invoice for all of your fees once you are successfully rostered. If you are not rostered, you will be assigned to the waitlist automatically.

Strategies for teams:

  • Have a registration party in person or on Zoom, so you know everyone can be online at the same time. The most frequent mistake we hear is one player getting online late and letting the whole team down. 
  • A team registering for the Competitive Division is only assigned a priority rank after their sixth team member is registered. The team’s timestamp is that of their sixth member’s registration. If a subsequent team member’s registration improves the team’s priority ranking, a new rank will be issued with that team member’s registration timestamp.
  • Captains should ensure that all their players have both the correct spelling of the team name and the captain’s name.
  • Registration for Winter 2024 does not require payment upfront. The League will issue you an invoice for all of your fees once you are successfully rostered. If you are not rostered, you will be assigned to the waitlist automatically.
  1. Your Membership Fee must be bought when you are successfully rostered in a division.
  • Player fees will be invoiced after rostering. This invoice will include your membership fee, which is charged paid once.
  1. What does it mean to be a “returning member” or "returning player"?

Returning Member Definition: To be considered a “Returning Member” for Winter 2024, you must have bought a TSVL membership for Fall 2023, OR Winter 2023.

Returning Player Definition:  To be considered a “Returning Player” for Winter 2024, you must have been on ANY team's roster in the respective (Comp or ID) Fall 2023 division (not necessarily the same Fall 2023 team).  This does not apply to substitute players.

For more details on the application of these definitions, visit the Division's homepage.

  1. What about refunds? Are there any charges for requesting a refund?
  • Refunds are available under the conditions listed on the division pages. You do not need to provide a reason for requesting a refund. IMPORTANT: A part of your registration costs includes an administrative fee from TeamSnap. You will not receive this back if you request a refund. For example, a request for a refund on a $20 membership fee will result in $17.81 being returned to the player. ($2.19 goes to TeamSnap and is non-refundable.)

Toronto is located on traditional territories of Indigenous people dating back countless generations, whose connection to this land continues to this date. As a result of past and ongoing colonization, invaluable culture, language, and history have been destroyed. In addition, we operate freely on land that was once the territory of a people that now have been displaced to other spaces and whose rights to hunt and fish have been denied.

We acknowledge that our league operates on the traditional territories of the Wendat, the Haudenosaunee, and the Anishinaabe peoples, whose presence here continues to this day. In particular, the gyms we play in are located on the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit and within the boundaries of the Toronto Purchase Treaty (Treaty No 13) – a problematic “purchase” of land by the Crown from the River Credit Mississaugas and the subject of one of the largest claim settlements in Canadian history.

In recognizing that we are all treaty peoples, we will continue to acknowledge the land we operate on, but also work to uphold our treaty obligations to learn, understand, respect, and care for the land in partnership with its original stewards.
