Hello friends from the North! Absolutely. Sign up on our website to begin the process!

School administrators play an important behind the scenes role for every team. Players will need to be verified through a chosen administrator at your school. The staff member will need to be verified through a Conference One league administrator before the team is eligible to play in any games.This staff member must have enough access to verify their players enrollment status, GPA, and academic standing before play commences in October. If an administrator does not verify the players for their school team, the team will not be eligible to play for the entirety of the 2021 school year.

If you are an interested student or school staff member, you can start the registration process by contacting us here. Once we have the required information and verify your school staff member you will be eligible to play in CF1 this year.

CF1 does not impose exclusivity. You are encouraged to participate in other tournaments throughout the year but we want you to prioritize CF1.
