Dear Members,

Welcome to a new season of the LA Pool League. 

We begin this Spring 2018 Season with 18 teams, 8 in the East Division and 10 in the West Division. We have a several new Captains who stepped up to lead teams - including Allen Fambro who is leading team Russfull; and Jeffrey Nii who is leading the Shaft Queens; and Drew Amann who is leading Cue Branch. Thanks to our new captains. Our league grows and expands through leadership and that starts at the captain level - so this is much appreciated.

Welcome New and Returning Players - The LAPL has several new players and many returning players. The Expendables, led by Ran Refael has several new players as does the Cue Branch team led by Drew Amann; Y-Unit, led by Justin Yau has a couple new players as does Russfull, led by Allen Fambro. The Little Joy teams and the Jerry's teams have brought on new LAPL players. We want to thank all the captains and sponsors for recruiting these new players. We hope our new players enjoy themselves this season.

Captains - Remember to add your players to our email list. You can email their email address and name to This email address is being protected from spambots.
