Local 613 Tryouts

Posted by Joel on March 24, 2015

Local 613, a co-ed Ultimate touring team, is holding open tryouts for the team this year. Our goal is to carry around 40 players with a core team and a development team. Tryouts for the team will take place on April 21 and 28 at Miklas-McCarney turf field at West Campus at 6:30pm, and May 5 at Nixon field at 7pm. We will then enter two teams into the Toronto Ultimate Festival on May 9-10 and use this tournament to make final decisions about the team roster.

We are very interested in building a solid foundation for high level ultimate players in Kingston. Our goal is to run practices in such a way as to foster development of new players (or experienced players looking to take their game to the next level) and integrate them with the experienced players on the team. In doing so we hope to build a system that will keep Kingston competitive on the national ultimate scene for years to come.

The expectations for those who do make the team would be to attend practices throughout the summer on Tuesday evenings at 6:30pm and to partake in tournaments throughout the summer. Below is a list of tournaments we are hoping to participate in:

Spring League 2015

Update - March 23

Posted by Joel on March 2, 2015

Due to the long winter and piles of snow still on the turf fields, Nixon field will not be ready for use on April 1. The league will now start on April 8 (weather permitting) and run until May 13 on Wednesday nights from 6-9pm. The league is a hat league so players will be randomly placed on a team (with an eye to balancing out the skill/experience level of each team).

To register please click here.

I've now extended the registration close date until Tuesday, March 31.

New for Kingston Ultimate 2015

Posted by Joel on February 13, 2015

If you've ever thought about trying to bring your ultimate game to the next level, this summer will give you lots of opportunities.

Local 613, a touring co-ed team (that came 3rd at Canadian Nationals last year) is opening up the roster this summer by having open tryouts for the team. The hope is to carry around 30 people and have an A and B squad that will practice together. The B squad will provide an opportunity for players that want to develop their skills a great platform to do so. Practices will likely start the end of April. Keep an eye out early April for updates with more specifics.

For any men who are turning 33 (or older) this year, there will also be a masters team that is looking to have regular practices and go to one tournament in the summer. If you are interested please email gdmarsico@gmail.com.
