Summer 2016

This summer, we plan to run leagues on multiple nights per week!

  • If you've got a team already, then just have one person register your team. That person can then invite all the other people to join the team.
  • If you don't have a team to join, don't fret! We've got 2 options to help you find a team:
  1. Register with one of the "draft" options. Draft registration means that people can register as an individual, and as long as enough others do the same (min 7 women and 9 men), we'll create a new team and put everyone on it! If we can't get you on a team, you'll get a full refund. First come, first serve!
  2. If you'd rather put your name out there for a team to find you, put your info on our Summer 2016 Free Agent List.


*All* players must have a league membership before being able to join a team or play in any games. There are 3 memberhsip options:

1. Adult membership: This is our standard adult membership for those that have played with us before. 

2. Intro Adult membership: For those who are playing with us for the first time. Come find out why so many people love us! This membership is good for 1 full fiscal year (May 1 - April 30th)

Summer 2016 (pt 2)

Some quick notes about Summer 2016:

  • Need a summer team?

    Summer league is now a full weeks underway. If you're looking for a team to play with, please add your information to the Summer 2016 Free Agent List. Captains know to look there to find players.
     
  • Wednesday Men's league.

    We're adding a new Wednesday night Men's league, with all games happening downtown at the Wanderer's Grounds. This league will be run by RC Ultimate. There is a max of 4 teams of 14, so the first 56 to register.

    Registration opens on June 22nd @ 6pm. Click here for the registration page. The league is set to start July 13th, but that date may change to earlier or later, depending on when the city makes the field available to us.

    Each team will be assigned an experienced non-playing coach to help them with skills development and strategy. This is a great opportunity to try a new style of Ultimate, while also having someone available to help players out!

    Inevitably, and understandly, some will iikely wonder why we're adding a Men's league, but not a Women's league (It is 2016 after all!). The reasons are:
    • At this point in the current season, we have a significant demand from men (more than 30) looking for teams, and we currently have nowhere for them to play as all of the draft teams are full.
    • We have a tiny bit of great field space on Wednesday nights available to us, and this is an ideal fit.
       
  • Field Conditions

    If you see any problems with any of the fields you are playing on, please let the city know of the issues via the 311 service:

Please note. All of these leagues will be run continuous, sub on the fly style. Confused? These are the key differences to note:

  • Players can sub off/on during play (like hockey) by tagging a teammate.
  • There are only 2 pulls per game - One to start, and one after halftime.
  • Halftime actually happens at half time, regardless of game score.
  • After a point is scored, play continues immediately.
