The event is open to all levels and ages of players. Each team will be coed, randomly yet fairly built, and captained by two experienced players. We may have A and B divisions. We are capping the event at 12 teams of 15.

Girls Meet Up and ME Tournament

Two updates:

Girls Meet Up in Vermont:
Ruckus (Women’s Club Ultimate @ UVM) is hosting a casual meet up for girls’ + women’s ultimate this Sunday from 10A-2P at the UVM Gutterson tennis courts. Any H.S. girls are welcome to join us for drills and scrimmages. We will also have Burlington ‘townie’ women playing to help guide the HS players in the drills and scrimmage.

Basic Schedule:
10-11: Intro, Warm Up, and drills (all ages combined)
11-12:00: H.S. girls + Burlington women vs UVM B in 7v7 game
12:00- 2:00PM: Burlington women (+ any H.S. girls welcome) scrimmage UVM A.

The easiest place to enter is the entrance for the basketball counts then turn right and follow the signs to tennis courts.
The surface is a padded turf. Cleats are not permitted.

The event is free to H.S. girls. I am unfamiliar with H.S. event regulations in terms of chaperones, etc. Please inform me in order to make this successful and contact me with any questions.

Hope to see you on Sunday!

Rhode Island:

Dear HS and MS coaches,

It is with some modest pride that we announce that the Rhode Island Invitational is an official USAU Sponsored event:
http://play.usaultimate.org/events/Rhode-Island-Invitational/

This message is a reminder that we have a vast expanse of perfect grass available on Sunday May 4th, 9-4 @ Barrington Middle School, Barrington RI, and are inviting up to six middle school teams and up to six freshman or very beginning teams for a developmental tournament. Each pool will be 3-4 games on two fields with a bye, and we will award modest SOTG and pool winner awards for each pool. Cost will be limited to custodian and field use fees divided by the number of teams attending.

If interested in participating, please email mstein@rwu.edu. If you have already done so, there is no need to respond again, but a confirmation wouldn’t hurt.

The event is hosted by Barrington High and a new team from Rhode Island – East Greenwich High School.

Looking forward to it!
