Ultimate Frisbee Club
 

Moose Ultimate Southwest, or MÜS for short, is Southwest high School's Ultimate Frisbee team. Come join in the fun!

We play in both the fall and the spring, and we encourage everyone with an interest in Ultimate and Frisbees to come out and play! Learn to throw and catch a disc! Sure we field teams in competitive leagues, but ultimate is all about the Spirit of the Game (fair play and mutual respect). We provide numerous opportunities for everyone to learn and play. Anyone who wants to play will play -- even if you've never played before.  There are no cuts.  Even part-time participation is enthusiastically embraced!

Fall Season Info
Tuesday, August 23, 2016 7:30 PM

It’s time for the fall ultimate season to begin. This is a long message, but there’s lots of important information here, so grab a cool drink, sit back, relax, and read on…

FALL PRACTICES will begin the first day of school and will held Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, 3:45–5:45 at Martin Luther King Park (42nd and Nicollet). As always, everyone is welcome to play at practice even if they can't come every day and whether or not they intend to participate in the fall league.

FALL LEAGUE is offered by Minnesota Ultimate again this year with a slightly different format and a different location. MÜS will register one or two coed teams depending on numbers, so please email kevin@kinneavy.com ASAP to let him know whether you intend to play in the fall league or not. Games will be held on Saturdays at 10:00 at the West Minnehaha Recreation Center, 685 W Minnehaha Ave, St Paul, MN 55104. Players are responsible for finding their own transportation. It will begin September 10 and runs through November 5, 2016.  The fee for players with a current USAU membership is $25 (add $17.50 for players who need a USAU membership for fall).

The MÜS Boosters offer financial support for any player that needs help with the above fees.  Please contact a coach or send an email to kevin@kinneavy.com.

REGISTRATION FORMS are available in the Fall Season section. All players practicing with MÜS this fall need to complete a MÜS Application Form and the MÜS Medical Waiver. Players playing in the fall league will also need to complete a USAU medical waiver, have a USAU membership, and pay the registration fee. See the Fall 2016 MÜS Registration Information and Checklist for more details.

TEAMSNAP will continue to be the primary vehicle for communication again this year. Please log into your Teamsnap account ASAP and verify that the phone numbers and email addresses for your family are correct. Also please add your jersey number and a photo!

RECRUIT new players! This is a great time of year to recruit new players and to have them come out to practices to check it out. They’re welcome to come practice with the team and learn about the game for free. They do NOT need to pay fees unless they are registering for fall league (though we do ask that they complete an application form and a medical waiver).
