Welcome to Level One’s Skee Ball League, sponsored by North High.

Winter Season 2016

Overview:

Teams of 3 to 5 will meet every Tuesday evening for 8 weeks total, start times will between 6:30pm and 8:30pm with match ups beginning every half hour. The first meet of the season will be a “Meet N’ Greet” session, pizza, drink specials and a tap take over will be provided during the session. The object of the first meet is to go over the rules, etiquette and to introduce the teams. There will be 6 weeks of normal league sessions, and a final week for play-offs. Play-offs will not only have a bracketed final tournament but two side tournaments known as the 100k and 10k tournaments. All fees and dues will go towards prizes. All matchups are selected at random and all matchups will be posted on our website, under The Skee League page, and on a specific Facebook group made for the league.

  • Groups must have between 3-5 rollers on their team. (If a single person, or a couple sign up, we will place them in a group to complete a team for them)
  • Each team will have a captain. That person will be the official representative to the league and will be responsible for communicating messages from the league.
  • While phone numbers are optional for regular players all captains must ensure that their profiles have an accurate phone number. This is used in emergencies and will never be shared.
  • Players must be registered and paid in full to be eligible to participate.
  • Teams will roll on the same lane throughout the match. If teams wish to choose their lane prior to the start of a match, Captains or a designated player will flip a coin for choice of lane.
  • EVERY BALL must be rolled while standing with both feet on the ground in front of the machines (no rolling from the SIDE of the lane). Violating this rule will result in a score of zero for the balls rolled during the infraction.
  • Balls that fail to enter the scoring zone and roll or otherwise returned to the thrower are able to be RE-THROWN.

Registration:

$10 PER PERSON. Skee ball lanes will be set to free play always. A minimum of 3 people are needed to make a team, and no more than 5 players are allowed on a team. Single players and couples are welcomed to register and at the end of the registration period we will group them into teams for them.

Season Length:

The league lengths will always be 6 weeks of official league meets, 1 initial “Meet N’ Greet” session the week before the official league starts and a play off session the week after the last official league meet. Meets will always be held Tuesday evenings, between 6:30 PM and 8:30 PM – the matchups will be scheduled beforehand and the start times for each matchup will be staggered at every half an hour.

Play off seating are determined by the accumulated points the team scored during the league season.

Gameplay Format:

Scoring will use the teams accumulated score and will be compared to the opposing team assigned to them for the evening. Play offs bracketing will be determined on the teams accumulated score of the season.

Teams will consist of 3 to 5 players and each player must roll 5 games of 9 balls (ONLY 3 ROLLERS WILL ROLL FROM EACH TEAM AT ANY GIVEN TIME). After each game rolled the final score will be entered in the hundreds, for example if someone’s final score on one game was 220,000 then the total of that game would be 220.  Due to the style of matchups, opposing teams will occupy one lane for the duration of the match. A coin toss will determine which team plays on which lane. Team members will rotate after 1 complete game of 9 balls, score will be kept by the league official on a spreadsheet. Scores and ranking will be updated on our website within 48 hours, and a link will be supplied to everyone on the league Facebook group.

If there is a tie between teams during a regular season meet, the tie breaker is determined by each teams’ highest roller’s score. (for example, team A’s highest roller has a score of 320 and team B’s highest roller has a score of 300 – team A takes the meet for that night).

Play Offs:

­­­Play-offs will be bracketed based on their accumulated season score. Tournaments will be played in the same format as a regular season meet. At the end of the match, scores will be accumulated and the team with the highest score will move on.

If there is a tie between teams during a play off session, the teams will go into a head to head format. Teams must match the team with the lowest number of players (for example, team A has 5 players and team B has 4 – team A will choose only 4 players to compete). Each player will roll 1 game of 9 balls, opposing teams will roll at the same time – scoring will use a best out of system (for example, best 2 out of 3, or best 3 out of 4, or best 4 out of 5).

The 100k Tournament

The top ten 100k hitters for the season will have a side tournament for further prizes. It will be a bracketed tournament as well. This side tournament will happen before the play off’s and individual prizes will be given to the 1st, 2d, and 3rd.  This tournament format will be 1 game of 9 balls, head to head, the player with the most 100ks moves on. If a tie were to happen, the first player to hit 100k in the least amount of balls moves on.

The 10k Tournament

This honor reserved for the players that have managed to hit the 10k for most of the season. Top 10k hitters will have a side tournament for further prizes. It will be a bracketed tournament as well. This side tournament will happen before the play off’s and individual prizes will be given to the 1st, 2d, and 3rd.  This tournament format will be 1 game of 9 balls, head to head, the player with the most 10k hits moves on. If a tie were to happen, the first player to hit 10k in the least amount of balls moves on.

The 900 Club:

During a normal season, if any person rolls a perfect game they will be welcomed into the 900 club. A special prize will be given to any who achieve it.

Sportsmanship

Teams & Rollers are encouraged to introduce themselves to their opponents prior to the start of each frame.

Teams are encouraged to “line up” after their match and shake hands, give high fives, or otherwise congratulate their rivals.

Skeeball is considered a game for the civilized and friendly. While healthy competition is encouraged, any player deemed to be acting in an unsportsmanlike manner will be warned on their first instance, removed from the game on their second (and their score fore-fitted) and finally removed from the league on their 3rd infraction. Examples of unacceptable conduct include excessive badgering of players (to include cussing, shouting or heckling) and or excessively rude conduct to other bar patrons or bar staff. League Reps will have final decision on any issues regarding enforcement of this rule.
