HS Session Added to the Eastside Camp
We are excited to announce an amazing summer opportunity for high school ultimate players on the Eastside!
We have just opened registration for the HS age group at our Bellevue based ultimate camp. This session will be coached by 2016 Callahan award winner and Sockeye player Trent Dillion, world champion Riot player Charlie Mercer and another all-star coach to be announced soon.
This is a chance to get top level coaching close to home as you ramp up for your high school season or even as you prepare to head off to play college ultimate as a freshman.
Please tell your friends, teammates, and neighbors about this great opportunity to be coached by some of the best players in the game!
Registration is open now - All registrants for this session will initially be waitlisted. When we reach the minimum registration number of 10 players we will move everyone off the waitlist and contact you about payment and waivers. If we get more than 10 registrants we will add even more star caliber coaches!
The camp will run Monday-Friday (Aug 1-Aug 5) from 9am to 3pm and is open to both boys and girls. The cost is $290. We'll be playing on the amazing turf fields at Bellevue's Robinswood Park
Olympia Ultimate Presents Geofest 2016
Hosted by the South Sound Ultimate Players, the Geofest (goo-ee fest) tournament will be on Saturday, September 17 at the Regional Athletic Complex (RAC) in Lacey, WA.
At Geofest, we strive to give spirited, C-pool-ish teams and newer players the chance to experience ultimate in a tournament setting (without any trouncing). The best way to make this a positive experience is to have a tournament with evenly matched teams at a less competitive level than most local tournaments. We invite teams that demonstrate good spirit, and a level of play that encourages new or occasional players to want to play more.
If your team is interested in the tournament, send an email of about 100 words or so to email@example.com with your team’s name, and what league and/or tournaments in which the team has played.
Emerald City Goaltimate Tournament (Youth)
Announcing the second annual Emerald City Goaltimate Tournament. This will be a one-day hat tournament featuring youth mixed divisions on the Delridge turf fields in the heart of Seattle. Proceeds from the event will go to support the U16 YCC teams.
What: Mixed youth goaltimate hat tournament
When: 10 AM - 4 PM, Saturday July 30
Where: Delridge Turf fields
Cost: $25 per person. (this is a benefit tournament for YCC U16 teams)
All youth divisions (U11, U15, U19) will have a Goaltimate Clinic before tournament play begins to teach the game and practice associated skills. Goaltimate is an awesome disc game that uses ultimate style throws. It is easy to conceptualize for young players just learning the game and is played on a relatively small field with low-stakes for turnovers. For more experienced players, it accelerates the pace of the game, emphasizes quick decision making and encourages a wider arsenal of throws. No prior experience necessary to participate.
If you're looking to become more confident with the disc, up your handling game, or just trying a different disc sport in a cool/fun/supportive environment, this is the tournament for you. Register today to ensure your part of the fun!
We will be filling spots on a rolling basis and we WILL fill up. Don't miss your chance to play!
