Sign Ups Summer 2017

Our Recreation Division sign ups have hit capacity and are officially closed for this season. If you would still like to sign up, consider playing in the Competitive Division, or email eric.n.holt@gmail.com with questions. The Youth and Competitive Division remain open for sign up.

Sign ups made after May 28 will be charged an extra $5. Sign ups made after the final shirt order on May 31 will not include a jersey.

If you are interested in the results of our survey, please read the post below this one.

For those interested in signing up, we will have 3 divisions this year. Competitive, Recreation, and Youth. The Competitive and Recreation divisions will be for those entering 9th grade and older, while the Youth division is for those entering 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Unfortunately we cannot offer playing opportunities for those younger than 6th grade outside of our clinics.

All sign ups will include a jersey, weekly games, and a tournament at the end of the season. All games and practices will be held at Bridger Elementary school in Logan. 1241 N 400 W. All divisions will be played from June 3rd – July 15. Please sign up for each division you would like to play for individually.

All divisions will be capped at 120 players to keep teams and divisions the right size. We think the recreation division may approach this number, competitive and youth we expect will be a little smaller.

Those adults who play in both the Competitive and Recreation division will need to sign up individually for both. You will be refunded $10 when you get your jersey the first or second week. Refunds not to exceed 50% of your total sign up cost.

Cost of each division is $35. 

Sign ups and descriptions of the divisions can be found below.

Youth:

The youth division is for anyone wanting to play some ultimate this summer and will be of middle school age, 6th, 7th, or 8th grade this fall. All sign ups will include a practice on Wednesday nights from 6:30 – 8:00 pm, with games on Saturdays at 11:30 am. Practices will have 2-4 coaches present, and all players are invited. Games will be at 11:30 am on Saturday mornings from June 3 through July 15. (If there are only two teams in the youth league, games may change times or places for July 15th due to the adult league tournament.)

If you played for the middle school ultimate teams Blue Bobcats and White Bobcats, you’ll be refunded $10 from your sign up. Refunds not to exceed 50% of your total sign up cost.

Recreation:

For anyone wanting to learn basic to intermediate individual and team skills. Each team will focus on a particular part of the game each week helping to grow your skills and improve your game. Skill levels will vary more widely, but the emphasis will be on teaching and learning. If you are a beginner, have little competitive experience, or are just looking for some fun this is the place to start.

Recreation division games will be played on Saturday mornings at 10:00 am and on alternating Thursdays at 6:00 pm.

If you recruit a new player to the league, and they put your name at the bottom of the form, you’ll be refunded $10 at the beginning of league play. Refunds not to exceed 50% of your total sign up cost.

Competitive:

For anyone looking for the next level in competitive play through league. While this is still city league, and skill levels will vary, this league will put you in new positions with faster play. Team sizes may be smaller. If you struggle with throws and catches may not be best to start here.

Competitive division games will be played on Saturday mornings at 8:30 am, and on alternating Thursdays, opposite the recreation division, at 6:00 pm.

If you recruit a new player to the league, and they put your name at the bottom of the form, you’ll be refunded $10 at the beginning of league play. Refunds not to exceed 50% of your total sign up cost.

If you sign up for both competitive an recreation division, you will be refunded $10 at the beginning of league play. Refunds not to exceed 50% of your total sign up cost.

We are excited for the season and hope to see you on the fields!

Results of the Form

For those interested, here are a few changes the league hopes to implement as a result of the responses to our form.

Captains

Going forward, as much as possible, all teams will have both a male and a female captain. We will also be asking captains to implement a new team or individual skill each week. This will hopefully help players continue to develop their game.

Rules

The league will post both USA Ultimate rules and league specific rules, including gender matching, before the start of league play for teams and players to review and get comfortable with.

Clinic

The league will be sponsoring a clinic open to all players in or out of the league in either late June or early July. Date to be determined.

Other Interesting Results

There were many comments about trying to keep skill level even across all teams and having captains focus more on improving than on winning. We hope to take some steps forward on this front in the next couple of seasons. We hope to make it clear that teams are never intentionally made uneven, and we have tried to even out skill levels. We also hope you will be patient with us as determining skill level early in the season is very difficult and not an exact science.

We will not be going forward with the company team idea in the near future, though most players did not seem to mind either way.

There were many comments about attendance being an issue. We will try to address this on an individual basis and encourage people not to sign up if they can’t make it to at least 50% of games. Unfortunately things do come up and attendance issues can’t always be foreseen.

The league will be hosting, or at least setting up fields for, some kind of pickup during the week.
