Valley Ultimate Fall Youth League 2017

9/18/17: It’s not too late to sign up! 

What Is the Valley Ultimate Fall League?
The Valley Ultimate Fall League is a coed youth program designed for high school and middle school players who wish to continue playing in the fall season. This league is intended to be a fun, competitive environment that will help players of all experience levels develop their skills.

The league will be divided into two divisions: One for students in grades 6th through 8th and one for students in grades 9 through 12.

Who is eligible to play in the league?

The league is open to all high school and middle school students in the region (grades 6 through 12). There will be a maximum of 90 players admitted to each league on a first come, first-served basis.

How does registration work?

There are three registration steps:

1) Login to your USAU membership account and make sure you’ve signed the online waiver and paid your USAU dues.

2) Pay the $70 league fee right here using PayPal. You can use a credit card and you do not have to create a PayPal account. We are only accepting payments online. Make sure your USAU Membership is up-to-date.

3) Fill out and submit the online registration form.

What are the dates of the league?

The league will run on six Sundays in the fall:

  • Sunday 9/17
  • Sunday 9/24
  • Sunday 10/1
  • (Youth Regionals are 10/6-10/8) [We will NOT be going this year.]
  • Sunday 10/15
  • Sunday 10/22
  • Sunday 10/29

In addition, some league high school players may participate in a Youth Regional tournament in Pennsylvania during the weekend of October 6-8.

Do I need to attend all of the sessions?

Attendance at all sessions is strongly encouraged, but if you need to miss one or two sessions you can still play in the league.

How long are the sessions?

All sessions are from 1 pm to 3:30 pm. Each session has a 60 minute practice, followed by a 90 minute game.

Who are the League Directors?

Joe Costello and Jeremiah Berlin are the league directors of the High School League and Suna Turgay is the director of the Middle School League.

Who are the coaches?

Each team will have an experienced, dedicated coach.

Where will we play?

Practices and games will be held at the Oxbow Marina in Northampton, MA.

How much does it cost?

The cost will be $70 per player. In addition, all players must be USAU members. All payments will be made online via PayPal, and will be part of the registration process. You are not registered until payment is made.

Scholarships are available for both the league fee and for USAU fees. Send an email to the league director if you need more information on scholarships.

Youth Regionals Teams [We will NOT be going this year.]

Valley Ultimate would like to send a boys and girls team to the inaugural Youth Regional tournament 10/6-10/8. It is recommended that players who are interested in participating in Youth Regionals indicate that on the registration form. Interested players will be contacted about the Youth Regionals team. Selection for the teams will require a separate player fee, and overnight stays in Pennsylvania on Friday 10/6 and Saturday 10/7.
