Be a captain, sponsor a team

Captains are responsible for recruiting six players: clients, friends, club members, family or secret ringers! In addition, captains will be invited to our special “draft night” where they can select from our pool of pros. Sponsors can play or select a captain to represent them. Captains also have the option to field a team of eight amateurs.
Commit to play Sign up as an individual and we'll assign you to a team. If you are interested in playing or sponsoring a team, contact Scott Russell (scott@scott-russell.com), 650-291-5369 (m) .
