All teams must upload their Insurance Policy in their Team Dugout before playing OTC Sports.

Post bracket publication (no later than 5 pm on Wednesdays), an Event Email will detail everything. The Team Admin email receives it. If missed, contact us.

These players are Grade-Based. For full clarity, check the rules section and view article #3.
