The Night League is a form of serious competition with 100% commitment in defense and offense. Players who don’t try hard on defense will be forced to play less games than players who work hard on defense. Teams will consist of 7-8 players max. Matches will be played at reduced playing time due to the short rotation. The night league is preceded by a draft. Draft allows players to choose teams, choosing a captain. It’s up to the captain, along with the rest of the team, to set a tone for their team or adjust the style of play. Captains will be selected during the first two days of training. The most outstanding players will be selected captains. Usually the oldest or most experienced players are selected to be a team captains.
