The A/B Winter League will be broken into two division:
Games for each division will primarily play on different days, and teams will not play across divisions, although there may be some nights where both divisions are playing. There will be playoffs and a championship game (at the same venue, at the same time) for both divisions.
Details specific to this league:
Questions? Contact LD Tim Streit.
This three session coed league is focused on learning all aspects of Ultimate Frisbee, including throwing, catching, and the basics of offensive and defensive strategies. Each session will begin with some warm-up exercises and drills, throwing, and eventually scrimmages to work on new skills. This is a great opportunity to learn fundamentals, get some exercise, meet new people, and have fun while you're at it!
We have decided to postpone the start of Instructional League to allow more people to sign up and to align with league in Jan. The session on 11/29 is cancelled. The session on Tuesday 12/6 is now the first night. January sessions should be added Thursday Jan 5 and Jan 12(subject to finalizing staffing). This will give 4 nights total instead of 3 and will also align some sessions just prior to the start of B league in January.

From Ryan Millecam:
Hi VOTS Players,
Kyrene School District's intramural Ultimate league starts up in this week and goes through January. Nineteen schools and over 400 kids, grades 3 - 5, participate.
In an earlier email, I put out a request for volunteers to help do some volunteer coaching (thanks for all your replies!). Ken and I have since met with the district and I've gotten a few more details about how we can help develop Ultimate in the community.
The big one is that they would like us to put on a clinic on Saturday, January 14th, from 9:00 am to 11:00 am (or so) at Kyrene Aprende Middle School (Ray and Desert Breeze Blvd. in Chandler). We'd show them the basics--throws, defense, some drills, etc.--teach them the spirit of the game, and scrimmage a bit. The kids would then apply these skills at their practices held twice weekly after school, and then at their tournament on January 28th. It will be free for the kids, but they'll register.
Speaking of practices, several coaches are interested in having VOTS players come do demonstrations during school practices. Here are the dates and locations we currently know of:
|Practice Date||Practice Day||Time||Interested Schools|
|1/5||Thursday||2:30p – 3:30p||Mirada|
|1/9||Monday||2:30p – 3:30p||Paloma|
|1/10||Tuesday||2:30p – 3:30p||Brisas, Cielo*|
|1/12||Thursday||2:30p – 3:30p||Norte|
|1/13||Friday||2:30p – 3:30p||Milenio, Lomas*|
Please email me if you can help out (even if you emailed me before) on any of these dates and on January 14th: firstname.lastname@example.org. As soon as I have a handful of volunteers for the January 14th clinic, we can start planning that.
Thanks in advance,
Always check links/email for the most updated information about a listed game.
