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 competitve leagues, but we also provide numerous opportunities for everyone to learn and play. Even part-time participation is enthusiastically embraced. 

Important Information Summary - 4/16/15
Thursday, April 16, 2015 9:30 AM

This post is long, but full of info you need to know.  Please read to the end!

  1. Drivers for Open Game Today (4/16) - One more driver wouldn't hurt.  So far we have Donna, Mike M., Maggie, and Madalyn. If you're going straight to the game, let coach Chris or captain Paul know.
  2. Wednesday practices added - Starting NOW. Same place/time: 3:30, Minikahda. This allows both teams to have 2 practices and a game each week, and one practice where girls and boys can play together.
  3. MUS Meeting Minutes (attached) Good details from our meeting. Please read!
  4. USA Ultimate membership DUE BY FRIDAY APRIL 17:  We have several players who haven’t yet joined USA Ultimate.  This is a requirement for  getting onto the roster for the State Tournament (May 30-31).
  5. Madison Mudbath, April 24-26:  This is the list of players that have told me they want to go. If you want to go, but haven’t RSVP’d yet, do so soon right here. We will cap it at 21. You have to have all your spring MUS registration complete and be in high school.  (See Tournament Info...)

    We could use another driver.  Drivers so far: Dan L., Joe L., Madalyn C., and Mike M. (If we get more players, we’ll need additional drivers.)
  6. Save These Dates:
    May 9-10 - Hopkins Hustle Tournament (Maple Plain, MN)
    May 30-31 – State High School Ultimate Tournament (usually in Blaine, MN)
    Sun, June 7, MUS end-of-season party.  3pm – MUS player/alumni game 4:30 – picnic, Minikahda Vista
  7. Peanut allergy alert:  We have at least one player this year with severe peanut allergy. Please do not bring peanuts, peanut butter, or peanut snacks/candy.  Other nuts are ok.
  8. New Communication Tool Coming Soon – TEAM SNAP
    Several parents have suggested that the TEAM SNAP app will be more efficient for us and we are going to give it a try.  You don’t have to be very tech savvy…messages will appear in your e-mail. But it allows players to indicate whether they are playing in games, allows parents to indicate if they can drive, and keeps track of game schedules/results, etc.   We will pre-load your addresses. You will have to set up a log in once, but that should be it. 

    Once TEAM SNAP is up, we will use it as our primary communication tool.  We will keep the FB page more for general information and player to player communication. 
  9. Fundraiser Success: Congrats and thanks to all who participated in the fundraiser. You raised over $3,000 for MUS, which will allow us to buy pop-up canopies for the team and to provide financial assistance to ensure that kids who want to play, can. 
  10. Need help finding or acquiring cleats or covering any costs of playing? Ask your coach or Madalyn Cioci. Coaches may have a line on inexpensive options, and MUS can help offset costs for players.

If you’ve read to here, you get a MUS swag cheer. 


Wednesday Practices
Tuesday, April 14, 2015 7:35 PM

This is last minute, but MUS decided to add a Wednesday practice, starting tomorrow (4/15), for the rest of the season. Same time and place...3:30 Minikahda. This will let boys and girls have one practice a week together. Bonding!

Ultimate Gear
Tuesday, April 14, 2015 6:15 AM

After our first few games, coaches are concerned about players having the gear they need to be safe and happy throughout the ultimate season!  As you pack for your upcoming games and practices, make sure to include these things:`

  • WATER - Absolutely a necessity, even when it's chilly out!
  • WARM CLOTHES - Keep a sweatshirt, sweatpants, winter hat and gloves in your bag.  If rain is on the forecast, bring a raincoat.  Hypothermia is a real concern during our spring season!  NOTE: If you are not dressed appropriately for the weather at games you will be sent home and will not play.
  • CLEATS - A pair of soccer/softball/football/lacrosse cleats will help keep your knees and ankles safe, especially when the grass is wet.  If you need help finding cleats, talk to a coach.
  • GARBAGE BAG - Keep one in your ultimate bag so you can keep your gear dry if it starts to rain (or snow).

Happy ultimate!
