Summer League 2021

Posted by Joel on June 7, 2021

The co-ed summer league will run on Wednesday evenings from July 7 - August 25 (Assuming we have moved to Phase 2 of the Ontario re-opening plan). Registration will open on June 14 and close at 11pm on July 3. We hope to run 4 tiers with 4 teams in each tier. Due to covid protocols there won't be any crossover between the tiers.

Similar to last year there will be modifications to the summer league which are designed to help reduce the potential spread of the coronavirus. We realize that this will alter the structure of the game and ask for your co-operation in implementing them. KU feels that this strikes a good balance between Return to Play and the safety of all players.

-Teams will consist of 12 players (6 men, 6 women). No exceptions allowed to the number of players and gender split. If a team can’t fulfill this KU reserves the right to manage their roster or void their registration.

-Games will all be 6 v 6 with a 3:3 gender split.

-No subs allowed. If a team is short on players then they can play shorthanded or default the game.

-Marking distance (ie. the person counting stalls) is increased to 2 meters.

-Stall counts are still out loud, but should be done at a quiet volume. They only need to be loud enough for the player with the disc to hear and you should refrain from counting them loudly.

-Any contact, even incidental, is a foul. The foul is always assumed to have been committed by the defensive player with the following exception:
i) The defensive player is standing still and the offensive player runs into them

-In lieu of a defensive player tapping in the disc to resume play, check if your opponent is ready to play then tap the ground to mark the resumption of play.

-Where possible we encourage players to mark the same opposing player.

-Game disc will be provided to team captains and will be sanitized before the game, at half time and after the game. Only official games disc may be used for the game.

-Players will need to answer screening question (online via your league account) on game day and captains will need to ensure everyone playing has passed the screening criteria.

-We will allow spectators, kids, babysitters, etc... as long as they are 10 meters away from the perimeter of the field. Social distancing rules will likely still be in place, so people who are spectators and not in the same household should distance 2 meters.

Update

All Programs

Posted by Joel on May 22, 2021

With the recent announcement from the Ontario government we now have a better sense of when we may be able to play organized sports again. Phase 2 will allow for outdoor organized sports to resume. They expect Phase 1 to begin June 14 and are waiting a minimum of 21 days between phases to monitor case numbers before proceeding with the next phase. This means that the earliest we will be able to play organized ultimate is the week starting July 5.

Here is how this will impact the various leagues (this assumes covid case counts continue to come down and we don't have further extensions of public health measures):

Spring Hat League
To allow a summer league to happen we are going to turn the Spring Hat League into the Fall Hat League. For those already registered that wish to play in the fall hat league no action is required, your registration fee will simply transfer. For those registered that do not want to play in the fall, please use the Contact link in the upper righthand corner to contact me and you will be issued a full refund. The league will be on Wednesday evenings from Sept. 1 - Oct. 13.

As well, there are currently some spots still available for women in the hat league. The spots for men are currently filled, but there is a waitlist. If we don't reach our capacity with women we will open the waitlist for men to fill them. Registration will remain open until Aug. 25.

Youth Programs
Registration for all youth leagues (Minis/Youth/Juniors) will open June 22. We hope to run two 4-week sessions on Tuesdays at 5:30pm at Caton’s Fields. Session 1 will hopefully start July 6th. Session 2 will hopefully start August 3rd. More information about the leagues will be posted at kingstonulti.ca by June 15

Summer Co-Ed Leagues
Registration for the Summer League will open June 14. This will be a team based league and we will run between 2-4 separate cohorts depending on interest. Our assumption is that each cohort will be limited to 50 people and there will be no crossover allowed between them. Teams will consist of 6 women and 6 men with games being 6 v 6 with an even gender split. More information about the leagues will be posted at kingstonulti.ca by June 7.

Future Leagues
We are exploring the possibility of running an indoor 4v4 league starting in mid-October. More details to follow.

Regards, Joel

Rain Policy

Posted by Joel on May 17, 2011

When the weather is questionable please check the web site. I will post the official word by 4pm Wednesday to the web site, facebook and Twitter. If you don't see a post by 4pm, then games are on as scheduled.

Please use common sense. If games are on and we get hit with a sudden storm, stop the game. Our permit can be revoked if we use the fields and damage them.
