Leagues

A/B Winter League 2019

A/B Winter League is a continuing experiment for VOTS. With the expansion of Ultimate as a sport and VOTS as a group, the skill distribution among our players has become, perhaps, too wide for everyone who wants to play to have a place in league. We're going to try something that many other vibrant ultimate communities do on a regular basis.

The A/B Winter League will be broken into two division:

Details specific to this league:


Men's Winter League 2018

Upcoming Events

Update, 12/11/18:

Our plans for the spring are still uncertain while we wait on delayed responses from the cities that we are trying to get fields from.

I wanted to let everyone know that we are still hoping to hold a Hangover Hat Tournament on January 1st at noon. I think that will probably happen regardless of what we hear from the cities. (See info above.)

We are also hoping to hold an A/B League, which would typically run January–February, possibly part of March and (see A/B league info above) a Spring League which would typically start in March and would run through the first few weeks of May this year. Those two leagues are dependent on having fields and so there is no certainty of what is happening or what nights we might play. It is possible that we might end up running a league on Sunday afternoons if we cannot get as many weeknight fields as we would like. We will keep everyone informed with updates as soon as we have any further information.
