Junior League - Canceled

Posted by Joel on May 27, 2013

Unfortunately, due to lack of interest we have had to cancel the Junior League for this year. My apologies to those kids that did express an interest. We have been reviewing our registration process and will be looking into suggestions for improving this procedure. As well, we will be looking into better ways of getting the word out to interested kids, and better defining our program so that parents are more informed about what we are offering.

We will try again in 2014.

We have changed the registration process so that it is hosted via the Kingston Ultimate site. If you have already registered with ODSA there is no need to register again.

We have also extended the deadline to register until May 17.

Kingston Ultimate will be running a junior league (ages 11-14) on Monday evenings from 5:30pm-7pm at Queen's University Nixon fields. Registration is open until May 13, but we will be capping the number of players at 60.

The cost of the league is $40/person and includes a T-shirt, membership to ODSA, and insurance. All games will be supervised by members of Kingston Ultimate as well as some local school teachers/coaches. Each session will start with a clinic teaching ultimate skills (eg. throwing, drills, strategy), which will be followed up with a game.
