Summer League

Wafc Summer Jersey Preview

Now that summer league is in full swing, WAFC would like to thank all our captains and league commissioners. Our leagues could not happen without you. Please welcome Glenn (advanced), Melissa (weekend) and Jack (rec) to our great crew of volunteer commissioners.

League reminders:

  • The full summer schedule is ready and published on the website.
  • Captains, always bring a copy of your field's permit to each game.
  • Weather looks dicey? Call the hotline at (301) LUV-B-MAX.
  • If you see lightning, stop playing for 20 minutes. If there is no more lightning, you may resume play. If there is lightning again after the 20 minutes wait, then the game is cancelled.
  • If at any time you notice your game is damaging the field, please stop playing. We do not want to damage any fields. See our field usage policy.
  • DC's summer heat is no joke. Be aware of heat stroke and take care of yourself and your teammates.

Have a good season, everyone!
