12 Days Hat Tournament – Registration Open!

Join us for our 12 Days Hat Tournament and help support Atlanta’s youth ultimate players! We’ve been rained out the past few years, but that’s not holding us back from having a good time and getting back out there.

It’s your standard hat tournament, with a few Atlanta quirks – see hat rules below. Holiday festive wear strongly encouraged!

  • Registration: Open NOW, sign up on our leagues page and will close by December 1st
  • When: Dec 7-8
  • Where: Georgia Soccer Park. Parking is $1.
  • Time: Saturday 9-5, Sunday 10-3
  • Cost: $35 (goes to AFDC Grants to support youth ultimate)

Registration details – Name and rank are needed to help balance teams. Please submit realistic rankings to help our commissioner and keep our event fun for everyone. There are limited spots (12 teams x 12 players) and they can fill up quickly, so secure your spot by sending in your payment today.

Check-in starts at 8:30am Saturday at the fields. The schedule will be sent to players Friday night, so if you have a first round bye you’ll register before your first game. You’ll received a jersey for your assigned team color, but jersey sizes will be handed out first come first serve, so arrive early if you need a specific size.

Fundraising – thank you for supporting Atlanta youth ultimate players! Your registration fee goes to tournament costs as well as a donation to AFDC Grants which gives scholarships to youth players. These scholarships help middle & high school players participate in leagues, YCC, attend clinics, and offset expenses that may prohibit them from playing the sport we all love. Because 12 Days is our annual fundraiser for this worthy cause, registration fee refunds are not available. You can also donate directly to AFDC Grants here (tax-deductible) and there will be additional fundraising activities you can support during this season of giving.

Hat rules – all players must wear a hat at all times while playing. Santa hats, chicken hats, cat in the hats welcome! A VISOR IS NOT A HAT. If your hat falls off while you have the disc, it’s a turn!

~~ Gentle reminder that dogs are not permitted at Georgia Soccer Park, per park rules. Please leave your fuzzy friends at home. Unfortunately, you will be asked to take them home if they make it with you to the park. We love our poochies, but must respect our field partners’ wishes. ~~

Rain (out) plan – Don’t freak out! There’s a plan! Weather has been unkind to us in the past, so if misfortune strikes again meet up at Monday Night Brewing at noon. We’ll have a bar tab set up for 12 Days participants where you’ll be able to collect your jersey and compete in some indoor fun & games instead. Hats still required!

Fancy Pants Dance Party

“The AFDC social event of the year.”

“It’s for the kids!”

“We clean up gooood.”

“How did I get home?!”

12 Days tournament participants will receive free admission to our evening social event – Fancy Pants on Saturday, December 14th. Mix and mingle with the rest of AFDC in your festive formal best. We’re finalizing location and other specifics, but mark your calendar and stay tuned for more details.

You DO NOT need to be a 12 Days participant to join us for the party. Separate tickets may be purchased for this event in advance or at the door.
