Levels Of Play | Explaination of Terms Used In League Descriptions


PlayMore believes that there are two types of teams: Competitive or Social  

Ideally, we are able to offer both a Competitive League and a Social League so that teams can participate in a league that is geared towards their mindset.  

However, offering both leagues (Competitive and Social) can only be done once PlayMore has built up to enough teams (for a particular sport) in one area.  

The reasoning for this is because PlayMore will only offer, both, a Competitive League and a Social League if we anticipate having a minimum of six to eight teams in both leagues.  

In order to build up to twelve to sixteen teams (to have enough to make the split) , PlayMore offers an Open League; expecting a combination of both types of teams as well as a variety in the level of talent.  


Open League -  

An intermediate league is a general league in which we expect a combination of different types of teams (mindset and skill level).  

We would expect that some teams possess a social mindset while others possess a competitive mindset.  

We would also expect a difference in the talent level of teams in the league.  

(As the number of teams in the intermediate league grows, we will eventually offer two different types of leagues in order to help teams place themselves in a league that is more specifically suited for them.)  


Competitive Leagues -  

A competitive league is a league built for teams who would define their game as successful based on whether they win or lose. If your priority is to win the game, you are a competitive team.  

As the number of teams in the competitive league grows, PlayMore will look to offer an additional level of play (a new league) to help teams play in a league with teams who have a similar level of talent.  

Competitive - Flight A - Competitve Mindset, Elite/Advanced Skill Level:  This league is built for players/teams who are looking to test themselves against other exceptions players/teams in the area with an advanced skill set.  

Competitive - Flight B - Competitive Mindset, Intermediate Skill Level:  This league is built for players/teams who are looking to play against other good players/teams in the area with a fundamental skill set.  

Competitive - Flight C - Competitive Mindset, Recreational Skill Level:  This league is built for players/teams who are looking to play against other teams who are a step slower, a bit older, and/or may not have experience in a particular sport.  


Social Leagues -  

A social league is built for teams who would define their game as successful simply based on the fact that they were able to play the game.  Although we understand that human nature usually causes players to want to win the game that they are involved in, a team in a social league wouldn't define their night as a failure because they lost a game.  Winning is just a perk; while a successful night is enjoying yourselves while playing a game (win or lose).  Competition takes a back seat to fun, camaraderie, and getting out to meet new teams and players.  Emphasis is heavily placed on having a great time and jovial game play between the two teams involved in a game/match.  In this league, the referees/officials/umpires are not guaranteed to be certified and there are no official rosters (because teams shouldn't need to worry about having an official roster if winning is not the priority).  If you are looking to win championships, compete, or take your sports very seriously, this is not the league for you.  


Corporate Leagues -  

A corporate league is specifically designed for local businesses and offices to enter.  

This is commonly used as a team building technique for companies.
