What can I do if the leagues are full?

8 Coed has introduced a new membership called “Free Agent” member. A “Free Agent” member can register for a discounted rate and participate when a team in any sport is in need. Essentially it helps you get acclimated to the league and offers you a way to experience the best 8 Coed has to offer and not be shut out for a full season until space becomes available. If you are new to our area, travel frequently due to work or have a problem committing to a team or we are full “Free Agency” maybe for you.
