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!

2. Women's Indoor Round Robin Hat Tournament Dec 5

Sign up by Nov 20 to ensure it's women-only. (Open spaces after Nov 20 mean it converts to mixed tournament).

What: Women's Indoor Ultimate Frisbee in a 5 team Round Robin tournament.  Ladies, sign up asap to ensure this will be fully filled by women.  Players sign up individually, not as a team. Teams will be formed later. If by November 20 we are not full, we will convert to a mixed tournament and open the remaining spots to men.

When: Saturday December 5, 2015.   Games will start at 8am and end by 2pm.  Each team is guaranteed 4 one hour long games.

Where: Student Recreational Sports Dome at the University of Minnesota (http://goo.gl/maps/ArRLX).  Bring your cleats, this is turf!

Why: WHY NOT? $30 will get you drafted onto a team. You'll be guaranteed at least four hours of play.  The top 4 teams after pool play will get one more playoff game where #1 will play #2 and #3 will play #4 such that 80% of the players will get 5 games/5 hours of play.

Register right now at www.mnultimate.org/register.php if you're interested.  We will draft teams to create as fair and fun of a tournament as possible.
