How much is it to become a member?
There are no membership fees at the HUB, you only pay for what you play. Click here to create a My Hubzone account. Then just register and pay for the league you want to join!
How do I register?
There are three registration options:
Full Team – Team captains will pay a one time registration fee guaranteeing their spot in the league. During registration the captain will create a password for their team. Each team member then needs to register themselves onto the team using the password created by the captain.
Small Group – This option is for groups of two people or more. The first person who registers will create a small group name. Each person following will register referencing the small group name as well as the name of the person who started the small group.
Individual Player – This option is for players who do not know other people in the league. Sign up as an individual and the HUB will find the right team for you. This registration option can be changed into a small group registration at any time.
The first thing you need to do create a login by signing up on our site for the first time. You can sign up and create a login by either connecting through Facebook or creating your own username and password through this link:
Is there a registration deadline
Sign up deadlines are usually 7 days prior to the start date of a league. Please note that many leagues sell out well in advance so make sure to sign up early. Registration is first come first served.
I don’t know anyone and would love to join The HUB. How do I get on a team?
The HUB makes it easy to get on the field. We form multiple independent teams each season. Each independent team is assembled based on the specific information each registrant provides. The HUB will create a team that has a good cross section of players of varying positions in order to ensure a fun season. Joining an independent team is the perfect opportunity to meet new teammates.
Can I join with friends and be put on the same team?
Absolutely! If you want to join with friends but don’t have enough players for a full team, simply use the Small Group Registration option and invite friends to register for your group.
I just signed up as an individual player. When will I find out what team I’m on?
Independent player team assignments are usually announced about 5-7 days before the start of a season. You will receive a welcome letter with your team assignment, roster, captain’s contact information and team website access with your schedule.
If I sign up as an Individual or Small group am I guaranteed to get on a team?
We will do our very best to get you on a team. If we can’t, we will issue you a refund or offer you an alternative league where we have space. Due to the large number of males that sign up, free agent females and small groups with females in them have a better chance of getting placed on a team.
I don’t have a credit/debit card, can I pay by check or cash?
Yes, you can mail a check to us at HUB SPORTS BOSTON PO BOX 1192 Watertown MA 02471. We do not accept cash payments.
I signed up as a full team. How do I submit my roster?
When you register and make payment as a full team only the captain’s information is required. In the payment confirmation email there will be a link to have players add themselves to the online roster. Forward this link to your team. Each member of your team will create a Hubzone account which serves as the player waiver form. Once this is completed your players will officially be members of your team’s roster. Only official members of your teams roster are eligible to play on your team.
What is the skill level of the league?
The HUB offer 3 different skill levels:
Recreational – If you’ve never played before or you’re a casual player looking to stay active & meet new friends: here’s where you should play!
Intermediate – You have some prior league experience playing the sport and are looking to step up your game. The perfect marriage of competition and fun.
Advanced – You want to take home the championship! You have a lot of league experience and maybe even played at the college level. You live for game day!
Each of our leagues has a key to guide you to the proper skill level.
What is the average age of the teams?
We have teams and players of all ages. The average age of players tends to be in their 20’s and 30’s. You must be at least 18 to register for the HUB SPORTS BOSTON.

How often are games played?
In The HUB weeknight leagues you can expect 1 – 2 games per week depending on the specific league. Some of our weeknight leagues play on only one night of the week, while others play multiple nights.

How long do your season’s run?
The HUB runs 6-10 game regular seasons that last between 7-10 weeks depending on the league and sport. Refer to the league page for the exact length of the season for the sport you are interested in.
What equipment will I need to bring to the field?
For most leagues you will only need athletic shoes of some kind – sneakers, turf shoes or cleats. For our soccer leagues you will be required to wear shin guards. For our softball leagues you will need a glove and the team you are on will need at least one bat to share.
How do we get our team supplies?
Prior to the start of every season there will be a Captain’s Meeting where the team captain or representative will be given all of the season’s supplies. The supplies you recieve will vary by sport and will be distributed by the team captain. The Captain’s Meeting is also an opportunity for players to meet HUB staff and review rules and policies
Will I get notified if my game is rained out or cancelled?
You may call our Cancellation line by dialing 617.863.8300 and selecting option 4 to see whether your game has been cancelled. Every attempt will be made to play the game. If for some reason a game needs to be cancelled you will receive an email or text message notifying you on the status of your game.
Game cancellations depend upon the playability of a field, not on whether it is raining. Decisions are usually made by 6pm on weekdays and early AM on weekends based on feedback we receive from our field spotters who monitor the fields regularly. Due to ever changing weather conditions, updates are made as necessary. If there is a cancellation, we will do our best to give you as much notice as possible, but there are many times when fields are not deemed unplayable until just prior to game time. Please keep in mind once games begin we leave it in the Official’s hands to decide game playability.
