Summer Leagues 2016

Teams and Schedule for Men's League are posted.

Games are at TSC at 8pm. Everyone needs to bring white AND dark shirts (in your team color if possible).

Update from Tim, 5/18/16:

All the men who are currently signed up (and maybe a few more who sign up today) should plan to bring a white and dark shirt to play 8pm Thurs 5/19 at TSC. Teams will be posted tonight or tomorrow.

Men's league will be four weeks, Thursdays, 5/19-6/2.

There will be a three week Tues coed league (all registered women and about half the men will play in this), probably Jun 7-21, but this could start up to two weeks earlier (tbd this week).

There will be another three week THURS coed league (all registered women and about half the men will play in this), probably Jun 23-Jul 7, but this could start up to two weeks earlier (tbd this week).

OVERLAP - There could be a week where Tues coed is the same week as men's, meaning that some men will have two games one week. There could be a week where Tues/Thurs coed is the same week, meaning that women will have two games one week.

ANYONE who has new info that was NOT on their registration (man wants to opt out of coed or has a NEW serious conflict with one of these coed sets) should tell me asap.

Thanks, Tim

Mixed ~ Coconino Classic

alt text

Rubix Ultimate would like to invite and welcome Club Mixed teams to the first-ever Coconino Classic, Aug 13-14, to be held in beautiful Flagstaff, AZ.

We are excited to host 8 registered Club Mixed teams for this SANCTIONED tournament. Flagstaff weather, far from the AZ desert, is typically in the high 70s at elevation around mid-August...perfect way to gear up for the series. Bid fee will be $350. This event will also be used to raise money for Ultimate Peace. We hope teams across the country will join us for green grass, local food, and local spirit.

For details, please visit Coconino Classic at USA Ultimate

Open/Men's ~ Sprawl/Brawl

Updated 5/9/2016

Sprawl leadership is making it a priority this year help build Brawl as a true developmental team for ultimate in Arizona. Early season practices will be mixed Brawl & Sprawl as everyone learns the same system.

The goal for Brawl for these first practices will be to solidify the interested roster, choose leadership, and plan for the season (i.e. tournament attendance). There will be no cuts (unless the roster exceeds the allowed 27), but the goal is to have a committed core of players who regularly attend practice and tournaments.

If you are interested in playing Brawl this summer, please attend as many of the upcoming practices as possible.
