IMPORTANT INFO from MÜS Ultimate:

Welcome to the Spring Season!  Happy that we have a bunch of new players and returning players, and are fielding 3 teams this year for the first time in SWHS ultimate history. Woot! Woot!  Lots of info here -- please read -- especially if you're new to the TeamSnap distribution list.

1. (TIME SENSITIVE) REGISTRATIONS & FEES: Thanks to those who have gotten their registrations and fees in!  If you haven’t registered yet or if you have not yet paid your fee, read on.  As responsible stewards of team funds, we can’t order jerseys for those who aren’t registered.  Get your registration and payment in by one of these two dates to ensure a jersey. Earlier date, earlier jersey. Later date, later jersey.

  • 6:00pm, tomorrow (Sunday, March 20) -- Registrations and team fees received at Donna Beatty’s (treasurer/registrar) house, 6051 James Ave. S., by this deadline will have jerseys ready for first games.
     
  • 6:00pm, Sunday, April 3 -- Registrations turned in at a practice or received at Donna Beatty’s house, 6051 James Ave. S, Mpls, 55419 by this date will get jerseys later in the season.

2. How to register?

  • Visit the team website, 2015-2016 season page: http://southwest.mpls.k12.mn.us/2015-2016
     
  • Print out and complete the 2 forms at the top of that page, the team application form and the medical waiver form.
     
  • Attach $100 team fee (cash or check). Make checks out to “Southwest Ultimate Frisbee Club”
     
  • Turn forms and fee in one of these ways:

    * Drop off or mail to Donna Beatty, MUS treasurer, 6051 James Ave. S, Mpls, 55419
    * Give to a coach, captain or to Donna at a practice
    * Give to Joe Sayles (coach & faculty sponsor) at Southwest High School, room W307

3. Fundraising!

We are in the middle of our big fundraiser – selling coupons to local businesses that can be used an unlimited number of times for a year. Thanks to all the players and parents that came out today and raised over $1,300 (!) for MUS by selling unlimited coupons and gathering donations.  We hope that all players will participate…it’s about sharing the effort, spirit, and reward.

We’re about half way to our goal to raise important funds to support 3 teams, subsidize jerseys, and provide scholarships so everyone can play ultimate.

  • Finish the blitz: Plan on joining the team April 9, 9am – 3pm, for the big final push! Meet at the Cioci/Lazur House, 4006 York Ave. S.
     
  • Can’t make the 9th? No worries -- keep selling in the 3 weeks between now and then!  We could blow by our $3,000 goal.
     
  • If you haven’t yet gotten a pack of coupons and instructions for selling – pick one up at practice from Coach Chris Hickman.
     
  • If you’ve already got a pack – keep selling them to anyone you can think of! And remember you can also accept donations.
     
  • Checks for coupons or donations should be made out to “Southwest Ultimate Frisbee Club”.

4. Practices, spring break & first games

  • Early season practices are happening at Armatage Park, Tues-Wed-Thu, about 3:45pm-5:45pm. In early to mid-April, when fields are okay, we’ll move to Minikahda Vista park (39th Street, 3 blocks west of France, just into St. Louis Park).
     
  • Practices will go on as normal, at Armatage, during SWHS spring break week (3/28-4/1).
     
  • Games are Tuesday and Thursdays -- start April 5 (girls), April 7 (boys).  We’ll depart 4:30pm from SWHS Chowen lot.  Detailed schedule should be announced soon.
