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. 

Can I play bocce without a t-shirt?

There is no requirement to have a team t-shirt to participate in bocce competition during the season, however we highly recommend having a shirt. Bocce specials provided by bar partners and host locations are only guaranteed to players who can be identified by their season t-shirt. If you opt out of receiving a t-shirt, you might not be able to obtain the specials. 

What is the end-of-season party?

It's a party at the end of the season that brings all of the divisions together for one epic good-time. For those that purchase the Premier or VIP membership, 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, finals, and any city-wide tournament that might occur during the season. Those activities will no longer include any complimentary food or beverage items for attendees.

What is the Peroni-sponsored grand prize event?

There are 2 ways to gain access to the Peroni-sponsored grand prize event taking place at the end of every season: winning the season-long Peroni-sponsored ticket contest OR purchasing entry via your VIP membership. This event varies from season to season; past events have included winery tours, boat cruises, and sports tickets. The grand prize event for the Winter 2017 season is a DC United game + tailgate.

What is NAKID social sports?

NAKID social sports hosts a variety of rec sports including kickball, volleyball, flag football and more. The $15 discount code to NAKID included in the VIP plan will get you $15 off any division & season of your choosing. We will email you a coupon code to redeem as you wish.
