2020 Summer Wednesday Recreational League


Description

Welcome to Wednesday Recreational Summer League! The league will run Wednesdays, with a tentative start date of mid-June, and a tournament scheduled for August 2.

COVID19:

6/24 - CUPA will continue to abide by state and federal recommendations to prevent the spread of COVID19. As of June, Ohio considers Ultimate a contact sport due to player proximity. As of 6/18, contact sports are permitted to practice within a single team, but cross-team play is explicitly NOT permitted.

In light of this information, Wednesday night summer league is postponed indefinetely. If Ohio's restrictions relax, we will reevaluate our ability to host a summer league. Until that time registration and signup for players will remain open, but payments will remain disabled until we can confirm that summer leagues can proceed. To reiterate, we will not collect payment for the league until we are confident the league can proceed.

Wednesday Recreational Summer League Details

This year, there are Summer League opportunities for Experienced, Intermediate, and Recreational play. Recreational league leans towards players and teams that want to play spirited ultimate this summer. Teams can sign up for either night, but they will be scheduled against teams of similar abilities so that games are fun and competitive for everyone. This means you may play the same teams more than once, rather than every other team in the league. 

Team Captains and Team Registration: 

To create a team, players must email the league director and indicate how many players they expect to be able to recruit for their team.  The league director reserves the right to limit league participation to an even number of teams so that there are no byes during the season. We also reserve the right to combine small teams or add free agents to your team to get everyone playing.

Player Registration and Team Selection:

Once teams are created on the site, players may register and select the team they are playing on.  If you are signing up without a specific team to join, please select "Free Agent List" as your option.  Once registration is closed, we will work to get everyone on teams, when we see where the needs are. Because the nature of the league is "bring your own team" we cannot guarantee free agents a spot, but we'll do what we can.

Teams can have no more than 9 club/college players* and must be sure they have enough women to play a 5/2 gender ratio**. At the discretion of the League Director, as registration progresses, smaller teams may have free agent players assigned to them or may be joined with other small teams to ensure an even number of teams and to ensure everyone who wants to play is on a team.  No guys will be allowed to sub for the tournament. Women subs will be allowed at the discretion of the League Director**.

Players must be at least 14 years old or 13 years old if playing with a parent. Team captains must be at least 21 years old.

Questions? Contact Rob Tedford.

*A club/college player is defined as anyone who has played club or college within the last 5 years (even if they only played one year of such), anyone who has played professionally, or any HS player who has completed two full summers of YCC (or the equivalent).

**Women players: Our goal is to encourage women to play, but we also don't want to burn out new players by playing full games when they aren't ready. Please keep this in mind as you recruit for the summer!  Our league is a 5/2 league.  Teams with only one woman must play down (5/1) unless BOTH captains agree on another format.  

Subs will be for teams that have fewer than 10 guy players/3 women players. If you have this many players, NO SUBS!!! If you think you'll be low, you can recruit, but everyone will go into the same sub pool, doled out by the league director. The director will only send out subs when requested by a captain - you'll have to let the director know you need a sub by 6:25 pm. Subs will sign in, and they'll get sent out in that order. So the subs you recruit may or may not play for you.
