Summer League Update

VERY IMPORTANT: Registration Night on May 19 Moved to Legendz

Posted by Noah on May 18, 2010

The Elixir is not available for registration night, so we'll be meeting at Legendz instead, on Wednesday May 19 at 8pm. Legendz is right at the corner of Princess and Division, i.e., just around the corner from the Elixir. Please plan to come to pick up your shirt and meet your team. If you were not able to accept the waiver online or pay online, you can do these things in person at Legendz.

It's recently come to our attention that the Partners in Mission Food Bank is holding a food drive across Kingston Wednesday evening, so we're going to try to help them out. Please bring some non-perishables along to Legendz when you come.

Clinic

We're going to run a short clinic at McCullough Park on Wednesday May 19 from 5:30 to 6:30. We'll go over the rules and some basic skills. Everyone is welcome. Here are directions to McCullough Park.

First Game of the Season

Your first game of the season will take place Wednesday May 26, at 5:30pm or later. The schedule will go up on the website later this week. You will definitely have a game on Wednesday May 26 -- please check the website early next week to find out where and exactly when. Note that this year we will be starting games as late as 9:45. On the bright side, all games will be on the nice St. Lawrence Fields or at Tindall.

A Few Players Still Needed

We still have room for a few more players, especially women. If you know anyone who you think might like to play, please have them contact us.

Shirts

If you registered and paid (or made arrangements to pay) before May 7, your shirt has been ordered and you'll be able to pick it up at Legendz. If you registered after May 7, your shirt won't be ready yet, but we'll be placing a second order shortly (likely around the end of this week), and you will receive a shirt from the second order.

Lost & Found

We've established a semi-permanent 'Lost & Found' post on the home page of the website. Please have a look, and let us know if you lose or find anything.

Expiry Date: Tuesday, May 25, 2010

Registration Update

Posted by Noah on May 6, 2010

Teams are now mostly finalized. If you're not sure what team you're on, check the full roster.

We have room for a few more players, specifically about 12 women and about 6 men. If you're interested in playing this summer but didn't register, please contact us.

If anyone who's already registered is interested in moving to a smaller team in order have more playing time, or anyone (particularly any woman) is interested in playing on more than one team, please contact us.

Expiry Date: Friday, May 7, 2010

Registration Open May 5

Posted by Noah on May 4, 2010

We're going to re-open registration around 9:30am on Wednesday May 5, and close it again at around 5pm the same day. If you want to play but have not yet registered, please register online during this window.

If you're a captain and new players request to be on your team during this time, please try to accept or reject them by 7pm. Any players pending for your team at 7pm will be either accepted or rejected for you, based on the number of people on your roster.

UPDATE: Registration is open now

UPDATE 2: Closed again.

Registration Update

Posted by Noah on April 29, 2010

Elixir Registration Date: May 19

Some people who registered early were told that the night to meet your team, pick up your shirt, etc. at the Elixir is May 12. We've pushed this back to May 19 (because we can't get on the fields until the week after the long weekend). So come to the Elixir May 19, not May 12. The season will start May 26.

Waiver

If you did not accept the waiver during your registration (likely because someone else registered you), you'll get an email shortly with instructions for accepting it. Everyone must have accepted the waiver before they can play, otherwise they are not covered by our insurance policy.

Offline Payment

A few people are unable to pay via PayPal. If you're one of these people: we'll contact you shortly with information about alternate payment options. We'll also ask you to respond to confirm that you are a real person who really wants to play -- anyone who hasn't responded by Tuesday May 4 will be unregistered. People who do respond will be activated so that they can be picked up by teams. We don't necessarily need your payment by May 4, but we need confirmation from you that you do intend to play. This only applies to people who aren't able to pay via PayPal -- people who have paid do not need to confirm their registrations.

Info for Captains

We will be meeting on May 5 to finalize rosters and put together our t-shirt order. Captains, please finish all the roster adjustments you want to make by 7pm Wednesday May 5 -- after that, you will no longer be able to make changes to your roster. We occasionally add players to teams if we think there might not be enough: if your team has fewer than 14 players, but you do not want players added to your team, please let me know at noah@kingstonulti.ca. Also, if you have a preference for your shirt colour, please send that to the same address. We can't guarantee that you'll get the colour you request, but we'll do our best. Probably best to send your top 3 colours, because there will likely be duplicates. Be sure to include your team name in any emails you send with these types of requests. Please include "Kingston Ultimate" in the email somewhere as well to help get it through spam filters.

Fields

Depending on how many teams we end up with, we may still need a couple of additional fields on Wednesday nights. If you have any leads on good quality fields, preferably (but not necessarily) close to downtown, please let us know. If we aren't able to secure additional fields, there's still a chance that some games will have to be played on Monday nights. We're doing what we can to avoid this, but there's a chance it could happen.

Mailing List / Twitter / Facebook / Website

There will probably be one additional email sent to every email address that we have in the registration database, but after that all communication will be be via the mailing list, the Twitter account, the Facebook page, and the website (they'll all have the same info, so you only need to follow/subscribe to one of them). Please make sure you're getting information from one of these sources so that you can be sure not to miss anything. Links to the list, Twitter, and Facebook are above in the right sidebar.
