Parents, we can’t make this league happen without volunteers. We can use your help in a big way or a small one, depending on how you want to help. We need people to check the fields for rain, help register and chaperone players, and bring water. We also always can use more volunteers to Lead Coach, Co-Coach and Support Coach as we have coaches assigned to each team. Please sign up in Blue Sombrero when you enroll your player, or contact Rachel Scales at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who will be leading the teams? We have recruited volunteer coaches from all around the Atlanta ultimate community. Coaches come from a variety of different backgrounds involving ultimate but all are ready and enthusiastic to be leading teams this upcoming league. We seek to keep the same coaches with the same teams for the length of the league.
I already play soccer/water-polo/volleyball & can’t make most days; can I still sign up? Yes! You do NOT have to make every single day, but you will be assigned to one team for the entire season.
What are the skill levels of the players? We have players who have never played before, and we have players who have played on school teams and attended multiple camps. You’ll be asked about your experience at sign up, and we mix up the teams to keep them relatively equal. Also, the drills and instruction you get will be varied according to your experience.
Can I sign up with a friend? Absolutely! We can’t promise you’ll be on the same team, but as long as both players name each other, we do our best to keep you together.
