FAQ on Participation Levels
Do I have to choose the same participation level as my teammates?
You do not have to choose the same option as your teammates. All bocce competition is included in the three plans.
What is the end-of-season party?
It's a party at the end of the season that brings players from all of the divisions together for one epic good-time. For those that purchase the Party Pro or Elite memberships, a minimum of 2 free drinks will be guaranteed to you during the end of season party. This party is a separate event from the playoffs and the city-wide tournament. Those activities will no longer include any complimentary food or beverage items for attendees.
What is the Peroni ticket raffle?
With the DC Bocce League, you can win on and off the court - all you have to do is support our sponsors. Our official beer sponsors are Peroni and Blue Moon. For every pitcher of sponsor beer you purchase, you'll get a ticket. Write your team name on the ticket and put it in the bucket at the bar. At the end of the night, we'll raffle off gift certificates and other prizes using the tickets in the pot. The more you participate, the better your chances of winning! At the end of the season, we'll tally up all the tickets. The top teams with the most tickets at the end of the season will win a grand prize: DC United game + all access tailgate.
What is the 'Meet the League' night??
Traditionally called a captain's meeting, Meet the League night is your chance to learn all about the DC Bocce League at the start of the season (dates TBD). This meeting is especially valuable if you've never played DC Bocce League before. At the meeting you'll have a chance to meet your league's black shirts, make a bunch of new friends, learn the rules and ask any questions you might have. Of course beer is included in this activity!
Who participates in the city-wide bocce tournament?
At the end of the season, we host a city-wide bocce tournament comprised of the winners of each division. At the end of a long day, the first place winners take home the gold championship trophy cup and maybe enjoy an ice water bath.
What is NAKID Social Sports?
NAKID Social Sports hosts a variety of rec sports including kickball, volleyball, wiffle ball, and croquet. The $10 credit included in the Elite plan can be applied to your registration in either the DC Bocce League or NAKID summer 2017 season.
