Fall Leagues are open for registration!

Did you know CSL is offering many new leagues at awesome new locations this Fall? Check out the amazing venues we are partnering with this season https://www.playcsl.com/leagues?v=upcoming.





I just discovered you guys? Is it too late for me to sign up a team?


We always have new leagues starting and current leagues with extra capacity. Check out our upcoming leagues page for all leagues currently registering. Give us a call at 317-253-4346 if you have any questions.


How much does it cost to play?

Cost varies by sport and by season.  Check our upcoming leagues page for up to date information on the cost for each league.


I have maxed my team roster, how do I add additional players?

If you have registered your team for the maximum required players and want to add more players to your team, simply click on the option to "purchase additional roster spots".  You may then select however many more positions you want to add to your team. Please note this will alter your total team fee.

To remove additional roster spots if they are no longer needed please email sports@playcsl.com.


I know a ton of people who want to play but I am not sure of being a Captain. I am nervous asking people for money and also I am scared of not being able to get enough players from week to week.

Being a Captain can sound intimidating however CSL makes it as easy as catching an infield pop fly! We have tools like TeamPayer that allow you to collect money electronically, and you can use your Team RSVP tool to see who can commit to each game on your schedule. If all that seems too much for you, ask a teammate to sign up the team and take the reins instead!




What is an individual sign-up?

We call them Free Agents. Basically, it means that you do not have a team to play with, but still want to play a sport. You sign up by yourself and we place you on what we call "Free Agent Teams" with other people that have signed up individually or in small groups.  You may also be paired up on an already formed team in need of players. Many of our past individual teams stick together season after season It's often a great way to meet new friends!

When you signup as an individual we place you on the list of people interested in that league.  Rather than take your money upfront, we wait until we can guarantee you a spot in the league and when we get enough people interested, we then offer you a spot.  At that time, we ask for your confirmation and payment to secure the spot on the team.  Due to the nature of signups it could be a few weeks after you register before the Free Agent team is ready to be formed.  Our goal is to get enough people roughly 1-2 weeks prior to the season beginning and offer spots 5-7 days before the league starts. 


My friend and I both want to play and sign-up together, but only if we are on the same team, can you make that happen?

Of course! At the end of your sign-up process you can invite friends to join you by emailing a link which will group you with your friends. If everyone that intends to play, signs up we are usually able to place you together 99% of the time; we will notify you if that it is not the case!


I am on a team, but we are not getting along very well.

If you have issues with the team that you are on, please give us a call or send us an email. We will see what we can do to help you out.


I want to play, but I may have to miss a game because of work/wedding/etc.

If you must miss a game, that is not a huge problem. We put extra people on the team as we realize that everyone cannot make every week. However, if you need to miss more than half the season, it is probably best to pick another league.


Why are there so many people on my Indy team?

We try to put extra people on your team as we realize that people cannot make it every week. So, we’ll put 8 people on your 6-person volleyball team to help make sure your team doesn’t need forfeit.


I'm not the greatest athlete, but I'd like to come out and play with you guys... will the leagues be too competitive for me?


No worries. Our sports leagues are fairly laid back and many have divisions for everyday players. If you're still nervous about playing in a traditional sport like football or softball, check out some of our social leagues like Bowling, Pickleball and Cornhole – big on fun and low on skill sets.

Can CSL host Company Events, like our summer picnic or holiday party?

Yes! CSL has lots of experience running corporate events. Why spend your time trying to learn how to run a Volleyball tournament when we have been doing them for years? Why spend your energy and resources starting a flag league for your corporation when we have already got everything you need? Just give us a call or email sports@playcsl.com and we'll discuss the scope and size of your upcoming event! 

Can I work for CSL on the Field?

We are always looking for great new refs, umps, and site staff to join the CSL team. Check out our Employment page and submit your info! Just don’t be hurt if we say you will be better off as a player than a referee.



When is my team fee due?

The team fee is due the day of your first game. All leagues also require a deposit ranging from $35 to $100 before you can register for a league.  If you are an individual your payment is required at the time of confirmation of joining a team.

Is it possible I could lose my deposit as Captain?

You only lose your deposit if you cancel your team less than 7 days before the start of the season.

My Teammates stiffed me, one left town and the other paid me with expired gift cards. Can you call them and get their money?

No. Next time try using TeamPayer at the beginning of the season to prevent any payment issues between friends.


What is TeamPayer?

TeamPayer is a way to help your teammates pay for their team fee without you having to worry about collecting cash or checks. For more info on TeamPayer, click here.

Can I pay by personal check or cash?


No. CSL Staff never accept checks or cash at the field.

Can I get an invoice to get my company to pay for some or all of my team?


Absolutely! – Invoices and receipts can be printed out from your Player Page.





When can I see a schedule for my league?

Generally, we provide a schedule for the first week of the league 5-7 days prior to the start date. Thereafter, the schedule is posted weekly following the day you play.


Why separate schedule release dates?

We schedule weekly for several reasons.

  1. Schedule Requests: Doing it this way gives teams a little longer to put in requests for the schedule.
  2. Competitive Balance: Weekly scheduling gives us the opportunity to gauge the skill level of all teams so we can schedule them more competitively. 


Can I send in schedule requests?

Sure! If there is a specific time that is tougher for your team to make, the Captain may request specific game times from the team management page. There is a $10 fee per date, or a $50 regular season fee. We will do our best to accommodate it whenever possible. If a request is not met, you will be refunded for that date.  Please keep in mind though that your team probably is not the only team with that same request, so it may not always be possible. Once the playoffs come around, schedule requests become harder to accommodate.


What holidays do you skip?

Due to field time constraints, we cannot skip every day that is considered a holiday.

We will always skip: New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Easter Sunday, Mother's Day, Memorial Day Weekend, 4th of July, Labor Day Weekend, Thanksgiving Day (and weekend following), Christmas Eve, and Christmas.

We will never skip: Martin Luther King Jr Day, Valentine's Day, Presidents’ Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Father’s Day, Halloween.


How are rain out games made up?

CSL will add additional weeks to extend a season or add double-headers to ensure all teams play their allotted amount of games.  A typical CSL sport season, unless noted otherwise, is 6 weeks (games), plus the tournament.


How do you determine who makes the playoffs?

At CSL all teams make the playoffs.




You can always practice and get better, but CSL never reserves field time for practice or schedules practices for your team.



CSL will bring uniforms to your second game. CSL must have all sizes by the start of your league using the invite system on your Captain’s Page. 



CSL does its best to have a league be on the same field or a consistent location the entire season. However sometimes we do need to offer different fields or rotator leagues, especially with rainouts.  We always try and keep this to a minimum and let you know about additional fields and bye weeks ahead of time.  More information on league locations can be found here.
