Time to Finish Fall Registration
Monday, August 31, 2015 6:40 AM

First game Sept 12 -- in just 2 weeks.  See the Fall Season page for game and practice schedule, locations, etc.

There are 4 steps to Fall registration:

  1. Sign up for the fall high school league ASAP. Link: http://goo.gl/forms/vrxLLWlPVe (This is $15. Fee is waived if your parent volunteers for 2 or more Saturdays.) For coach info on the registration form, put Chris Hickman, chickman22@gmail.com, 651-235-2852.
     
  2. Sign up for USA Ultimate (the national association). If you aren't already a member, you'll be prompted to join while signing up for the high school league. (This costs $31 and is good Jan 1 - Dec 31).
     
  3. Complete the SWHS Ultimate Frisbee Club Registration Form.
     
  4. Complete the combined SWHS Ultimate Frisbee Club and USA Ultimate medical waiver form.

Both MUS and the High School league want a copy of the medical waiver. Give completed SWHS Registration Form and 1 Medical Waiver to any captain at practice, and bring the other medical waiver to the first game.

Fall MUS season details - practices & fall registration info
Monday, August 24, 2015 6:10 AM

Hi MUS! After Tuesday's Stadium game, it's time to start practices and sign up for fall league!!  SEE PHOTOS!

  1. First practice is this Wednesday, 8/25.
     
  2. Practice schedule: Tues - Wed - Thur, 4:00 - 5:45 p.m., Martin Luther King Jr Park (40th and Nicollet). These will be mostly captain-led. We know folks may be busy getting school started...attend as you can. See the Fall Season page for details and transportation information.
     
  3. Sign up for Fall League!! This year, we're switching from the TCUL league to the recently formed fall co-ed high school league. Why? We think this it provides better level of play, it takes the pressure off of girls (we don't need to meet a minimum requirement), and we may even get to create 2 teams, so more boys can get more playing time.

    Sign up now at:  http://goo.gl/forms/vrxLLWlPVe

    YOU HAVE TO SIGN YOURSELF UP. It's only $15. Though you sign up individually, they aim to keep MUS players together on a team (or 2). Games will be 10am on Saturdays at Bossen Fields, beginning Sept 12.

    For coach info...put Chris Hickman, chickman22@gmail.com, 651-235-2852

Looking forward to another great year of ultimate.
