Leagues

We run leagues year round that welcome both beginner and veteran players.

Summer League: Sign up to play Ultimate in a team-based, mixed gender, recreational environment! Our Tuesday and Thursday evening leagues cater to all skill levels from beginners to veteran players. Our Wednesday evening league starts later in the summer, and caters to those players at a beginner to intermediate skill level. The only way you can't have a good time, is if you don't sign up!

Fall League: Every September, we just don't feel ready to head inside yet. To keep the "summer" going a bit a longer we offer several smaller hat leagues from September to mid-October on artificial turf fields under the lights. Whether you are brand new to the sport or a veteran player, we've got something for you!

Indoor League: From November to April we offering multiple Ultimate hat leagues for all levels of experience. Some nights will be mixed gender, while others will be Men's and Women's, check out the league page for details on all of our options.
