Tired of chasing those twenty-something’s around the field? Are you a veteran player ready for some fun, complex, thinking-person’s ultimate?  Then the Master’s Hat League is for you. Geared for men & women players over 30, the Summer Master’s League is a great way to connect with the vibrant community of the Northwest’s veteran players. 


 


Headlines

All league games are scheduled for the grass Sports Meadow at Magnuson Park.

We'll be trying a few new things for the 2009 Summer Masters Hat league.

First, we'll be using the pod-system for rostering.  Pods are a great way to play both with & against all the members of the masters community.  No more boring schedule of playing the same teams twice! 

See below for information about this format.

The league starts play earlier in the summer.  Games start Monday June 8th and conclude Monday August 3rd.   And all the games will be played on the tres-sweet grass fields at Magnuson Park. 

Our goal is to field 8 pods of 8.  So register now. Online registration is now open.

Format:

A new format will be used for 2009 Summer Master's Hat in order to increase the variety and fun for a short league.  Team pods will be used.  In the past Chick Flick and the Spring Men's Hat League has used this model with success.

Rosters - This league will group players in to half-team pods.  Each pod will have about 7 players each. 

Games - Two pods will combine to form one team for a game.  For example, first week matchups might include Pods A & B against Pods C & D.  On the second week it might be Pods A & C against Pods E & F.

Buddies - As with the Men for All Seasons tournament,  friends are encouraged to register together for the league.  If you want to play together as a pod (up to 7 people), please name the pod's captain as your "Buddy" on the registration form.  Players without buddies or teams will be assigned to teams.  Groups that sign up as a pod with less than 7 players may be assigned additional players.  Up to 8 team pods will be accepted to the league.


Rules

We will be using the UPA 11th Edition Rules for the league.

Any league specific rules will be posted prior to the start of the season.
