What are the tie-breakers for playoff seeding?
-Tie-breaking procedures are located at the bottom of the rules page for each sport.
Who qualifies for playoffs?
-The number of teams to advance varies per seasons based on field availability and the number of teams in the league. A team generally must have a .500 record or better to be eligible for playoffs.
Can we switch divisions?
-If you feel as if you are wrongly placed into a division after the first game then you may email in a request. We will do our best to accommodate however cannot guarantee the switch.
Can we bring alcohol to the field?
-Many (but not all) outdoor sports permit drinks at the field, provided they comply with the park’s “no visibility” policy. Thus, all drinks must be in colored (clear cups are not permitted) plastic cups and beer cases cannot be displayed. Coolers are permitted. Glass is PROHIBITED at all venues. -You cannot bring alcohol to most indoor sports or Zilker Park.
What type of equipment do I need?
-There are only two sports that require you to have equipment. For Soccer, all players must have their own shin guards. For Softball, all players must have a glove (and a team bat). For other outdoor sports we recommend cleats, but they are not required.
Will our team have practice?
-The SSC does not coordinate practices for teams; however, you are more than welcome to set up something for your team on your own. Our fields are for game use only.
It’s cold outside – can I wear a sweatshirt / jacket / pullover / zip up over my uniform?
-Since the SSC is a uniformed league, all sweatshirts/jackets must be worn under your uniform. The uniform must be in clear view in order to play (even zip ups that are just over the shoulders will not be permitted unless they are underneath the SSC uniform.
I forgot my uniform at home (or picked the wrong uniform). Can I play?
-The SSC is a uniformed league, so all players must be in the current season’s shirt to participate. Without one, you must switch out jerseys with a teammate when you are on the field of play. You will be roster-checked to ensure you are on the team (for liability purposes).
What is the post-game happy hour all about?
-Only half the fun is on the playing field. Afterwards, we coordinate a post-game bar which will always feature drink specials, have food available, and give players a chance to interact with teammates, opponents, and new friends.
Can I give my shirt to someone else and have them play for me if I know I’m going to miss a game?
-No, only players on your roster are allowed to participate for liability purposes.
Where can I find the rules on each sport?
-The rules for all sports can be found on the homepage of our website under the “rules” tab.
What is the forfeit policy?
When will the schedule be up?
-Only the week one and two schedules will be posted prior to the start of the season. The rest of the season’s schedule will be posted after the second week of games (the reason for this is to ensure all teams are playing in the correct division).
What if I know I’m going to have to miss a game or two during the season, can I still participate?
-Yes, just be sure to inform your teammates.
How do I find out if the game is cancelled?
-If the cancellation is due to inclement weather, please call our weather line at (512) 400 – 0060 or check Facebook for updates. The best way to stay up to date on cancellations is to sign up for the Rainout Line. If inclement weather begins after 5pm, only the weather phone number and Rainout Line will be updated. If inclement weather begins after 5pm, only the weather phone number will be updated.
How do I find out when and where we play each week?
-Your schedule will be posted online. It will appear under “schedules & standings” for the sport that you are playing. Click on your team name to see the full schedule. If you don’t know where a location is, the addresses and maps to all locations are online under the “fields” tab on the homepage.
Can I still sign up if it says sold out?
Can I play two sports at once?
-You can play as many sports at once as you would like, provided you are not on two different teams in the same sport on the same night. However, you could play the same sport on two different nights (ex. Tuesday & Thursday kickball).
How do I find out when a new league opens?
Which division should I sign up for?
-Social is for players with experience in that sport and super social is for players with limited skill or those players who are new to the sport. If you are still unsure, e-mail us with your sports background and we can give you advice.
The deadline to register has passed. Can I add another player?
-Yes if we have SSC uniforms in inventory. If so, you have up to the third week to add players. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with an add-on request. The additional player cost would still be due when the shirt is received, and that player must sign the team waiver before they will be allowed to play.
Can I pay my team balance with a credit card?
-Yes, however the payment must be made at least one day in advance of the uniform handout. Inform us in advance if you wish to pay by credit card by replying to your captain’s e-mail. You will be e-mailed with a link to pay.
Can I request a specific color for our uniforms?
– Yes, full teams are asked for their top three choices when signing up but there is no guarantee that a uniform request will be granted (priority for colors are based on a first come first serve basis).
How does the wait list work and how do I improve my chances of being placed?
-Priority placement is given to individuals who sign up with co-ed teammate requests, followed by registration date (the earlier the better). If you are waitlisted and we are unable to complete the formation of an additional team after the deadline, you will be given the options to transfer to another sport with priority registration.
If I sign up as an individual, am I guaranteed placement?
-Usually we have enough room for everyone if you sign up on time. Since we are unable to determine the number of males & females to sign up for a particular sport until after registration ends, we cannot predict if everyone will be placed. If you are not placed initially then you will be put on a wait list.
When do I find out what team I’m on?
-You will receive an email with your team roster a 2-3 business days before the posted happy hour date.
What is your refund policy?
-Since we use a third party for online registrations, we are unable to process any refunds after payment has been made. If you are no longer able to play the sport, and inform us via e-mail of this (email@example.com) prior to the registration deadline, then you will be able to hold that credit for any future SSC event of equal value for the remainder of that calendar year. Once the registration deadline has passed, there are no refunds or credits. If you are unable to play after the registration deadline has passed (but before the season begins), you would need to find someone to take your place, and that player can compensate you for the spot and take your shirt.
Can I sign up in person or pay by check?
Yes – You may bring cash, check, or money order to a SSC event, along with your registration form printed out, and one of our staff supervisors can take it. This must be done at least one day prior to a registration deadline.
How does registration work?
-If you have a full team – When signing up, a team captain will pay a $200 down payment. You will also need each team member’s name, e-mail, & t-shirt size. The remaining balance is due at t-shirt pick up in full. -If you do not have a full team – Sign up as an individual to be placed on a team. If you have any friends that you want to play with (but not enough for a full team) there is a box on the registration form in which you can write in any teammate requests. Requests must be made at this time as teams will not be changed after registration ends.
How do I sign up?
-From the austinssc.com menu, go to a sports registration page and scroll down to the sport you would like to play. There is a registration link in each listed item that will take you to our partner site (League Apps) to start the registration and payment process.
How do I add players to my team?
What’s with the pricing?
EARLY BIRD pricing is offered as a perk for our returning members who are generally the first to know of registration openings. During this period team members can enjoy the convenience of online processing without any fee. REGULAR pricing is offered for those teams who might like more time to recruit and organize their team members.
How can I earn a free registration?

If you are interested in becoming an official for any sport, please fill out the job application here. If you know someone who would make a good official or is interested in officiating for us, have them fill out the application and make sure they put your name as how they heard about the position. If they officiate for two or more seasons, you will get a free registration!
What if I need to request a shirt?
Every additional player added to the team roster after the registration close date will incur the per player cost. We invoice teams based on the number of shirts ordered, so one shirt equals one player. Extra shirts are not distributed. Players can be added up until the start of the third game. Should a player’s shirt become lost, torn, damages, or unwearable, the cost to replace it will be $10. Orders must be sent 48 hours prior to the sport night. Late addition shirt size is not guaranteed due to limited inventory. We will work to send out the closest size available. To receive your shirt please check in with the onsite coordinator upon arrival at your game. Players will have to show proof of purchase via emailed receipt in order to get their shirt. In the case of a new player addition, the player must be added to the online roster. To add a player or request a shirt, please fill out the form here.
