From Michael Sedillo:

2014 has been full of surprises with this spring league being at new fields, and on a new night... so how about a new post game bar! So, I'd like to invite everyone to come out after the games and head over to The Monastery, 4810 E McKellips Rd, Mesa, AZ.

This bar is just a 3 minute drive from the fields and has a huge patio with 2 full sized volleyball courts, ping pong, and horseshoes. Can anyone say volley-disc? This place also great food and beer. Monday nights they have 60¢ wings and a reverse happy hour that starts at 10pm. Menu!

AZ Mixed Ultimate Open Play

Calling all competitive ultimate players!

Are you interested in club level mixed ultimate in AZ? Are you looking for information regarding the Phoenix-based teams? Looking for an excuse to play some ultimate? Well we've got an event for you!

The 3 Phoenix-based mixed club ultimate teams - Rubix, Remedy, and Del Sol - are organizing a mixed ultimate open play day prior to tryouts. Note: this is not a tryout.

  • Where: Esteban Park (3345 E Roeser Rd, Phoenix, AZ)
  • When: Sunday, April 27th from 9am-noon (the day after VOTS finals...sorry, only date that worked)

Open play will include warm-ups, drills, open pick-up scrimmage time, and individual team discussions. The goal of this day is to have some fun, while providing players with information about each team. Come out, play some ultimate, listen to each team discuss their history, past accomplishments, and 2014 goals, talk to the leadership, and enjoy the weather before it gets too hot!

Hope to see you all then! No RSVP required.
- Rubix, Remedy, and Del Sol Leadership

New Year Fest 2014

Check out Alex's take on shooting NYF VS playing NYF: The Challenge of Expectation

The 32nd annual New Year Fest took place January 25-26, 2014 in Phoenix, AZ at Phoenix Reach 11 Sports Complex.

Congratulations to Lady Liquor (Women's A) and Mamabird (Open A), NYF XXXII Champions!

From Jim's wrap-up: "The Open A final came down to University of Colorado Mamabird against The Recruits, a MLU recruiting/tryout team from Philadelphia. It was a very hard fought game with both teams leading, but in the end Mamabird came out with the win! The Women's A final pitted Lady Liquor against Hella Bella. These two teams are consistently among the top teams in the Women's division, both being crowned the winner in the past two NYF tournaments. Lady Liquor was victorious in a hard fought game that capped off a terrific tournament."

Local teams were also well represented. "In the Open B pool the local Masters team, Crawl, won finals over Pineapple Express, another local team. In Women's Pool B, The Minions played a spirited game against Maul for the B bracket championship."

Special thanks goes out to all the volunteers that make a 46 team tournament run fairly smoothly!
