The Dolphin E-mail Leagues are a family of online sports simulation leagues. Professional sports are football (American), basketball, baseball, soccer, and hockey. College sports are football, basketball, baseball, and hockey. All leagues run using game engines developed by Dolphin Simulation Games, which use the player abilities and your coaching settings to determine the outcomes of the games.

A coach in one of the leagues takes control of a professional or college sports team. Roster management in pro leagues consists of a draft (not in soccer), trades, and free agency. In college, new players come through recruiting and walk-ons. You are also in charge of sending preferences for how the team should play its games, although you do not have direct control over the games themselves. All orders (coaching, draft, free agents, etc) are submitted in advance, meaning that you do not have to plan to be online at exact times when events happen.

We give 1 free season when you register, so that you will have a chance to evaluate the leagues and familiarize yourself with the game system. Web access is required for joining the leagues, and e-mail is required for receiving team press releases and league results.
