IFBL League Homepage:  A list of all the active IFBL leagues are shown on the IFBL league homepage.  Sportability calls each different group of teams (such as grade/gender) a league, not a division.  Click on the icon next to the name of the league you wish to view, and you will be taken to its league homepage.

 

Information that can be viewed for each league include, the complete league or team Schedule, Standings, Head to Head Results, Playoff Brackets and Scores, League Notices (posted by the League Commissioner), Team Contacts, Locations (Gym addresses, you can even map driving directions), and a league Message Board to post comments about your teams league.

 

Once a league is selected, then the following options can be used for that specific league:

 

League Home:  On each league’s homepage the following are shown – Recent League Notices (notes and information posted by the league commissioner) and Recent/Upcoming Schedule (schedule of recent and upcoming games for the league).
