If you are visiting this page you have likely Registered for csfbl.com, and Registered for the CSFBL Forums. You have also likely browsed around the Find a League page and found a few available teams that interest you. Now it is time to recruit a team, or maybe even a few teams.
Some leagues are public, meaning you can select any team that's unowned. Just click on I want the team
and it will take you to a confirmation page where you can recruit the team to your franchise.
Some leagues are private and have commissioners. Don't let the word 'private
' scare you ... there is really nothing private about them. It is very easy to join a private league. Just click on the I want the team
link and it will take you to a page where you can request the team be added to your franchise. Just click the 'request
' button, and an email will be sent to the league commissioners letting them know that you are interested in joining their league.
Mentor leagues are commissioner-led private leagues, specifically available to new CSFBLers and users returning from time away from the game. For the first 5 seasons, each of the 4 divisions has a CSFBL mentor to help the 6 teams in the division learn the ins and outs of playing CSFBL. It’s like having a veteran bench coach in your dugout. If you have questions, or need a second opinion on how to build your team, who to draft, proposing or evaluating a trade, or anything else ... you can build your team with confidence knowing that your mentor is there to help when needed. To join a mentor league, simply follow the same steps required to join a private league. If you have any difficulty, you can find any mentor or site admin on CSFBLchat and they will be more than happy to help you.
Recruit a team using the forums
Another easy way to recruit a team is by going to the CSFBL Forums.
- Simply navigate to the league's forum and request an available team or submit a post in the leagues wait list indicating that you would like to be considered for future openings.
- Post in the "I Want A New Team" thread and commissioners will recruit you.
- Post in the Join A Mentor League thread and an administrator will help place you in a league and match you up with a mentor.
