After a close first half, FOA pulled away from Blackhorse to win the championship game in the MZU summer league. This is FOA’s eleventh total Flaherty Cup, with the last ten being consecutive.
From FOA’s captain, Paolo Mascarin: “We are so appreciative of all those that organize the leagues, and all those that have helped propel the sport of ultimate forward in Newfoundland and Labrador. As I think back to FOA’s first Flaherty Cup in 2006, I would have never expected the sport of ultimate and its players to have evolved into the high level it is today. FOA looks forward to next summer, and many thereafter”.
Here’s your monthly update on all the Leagues in St. John’s!
Mile Zero Ultimate: Unsurprisingly, Fellowship of Awesome is still at the top of the league. And as always, the league is filled with some teams that have fantastic names! Full standings can be found here at any time:
St. John’s Women’s Ultimate Recreational League: There is a single team that is dominating the competition in SWURL’s Summer League – Team Blue. To check out the stats, head here:
Men’s Avalon Ultimate League: MAUL has seen a lot of fierce competition this summer. Currently in first place is Stack Overflow, but Attache ta Tuque! has the same record, and a point differential only four lower than the current leader. Here’s all the details:
MZU has been selling discs at various fields during regular season games this summer. If you’re interested in a disc but haven’t been able to get to the field to pick one up, reach out to email@example.com to learn how you can purchase one. Discs are made by Ultra Star and are $15 cash.
Playoff day for the MZU Capital Subaru Summer League is less than one month away! Playoff games will begin on August 22nd and 24th, with semi-finals and finals taking place on Saturday, August 26th, followed by the end of season party at the Rocket Room.
More details to follow in the coming weeks, be sure to check Mile Zero Ultimate’s facebook page for more details.
Mile Zero Ultimate has an updated substitute player policy. This was introduced at the Captains’ Meeting on May 31st.
As of June 2017, they are allowing players registered within the league to play as subs in up to two games for other teams during that league, excluding the playoffs. Players who are not registered in the league can still play up to half the games (rounded up), including one playoff game. Subbing is still free.
As a new requirement, every substitute player must have an online profile on www.milezeroultimate.com/z and join the Substitute Player 2017-18 event. When a player visits from out of town or joins for the first time, we require a profile and that they accept our waiver.
Captains must discuss their subs with the opposing captain prior to the game. They must also record the identities of substitute players when recording the score online. Substitution must be done in accordance to the Spirit of the Game. Subs should allow you to play a game without defaulting; they should not greatly influence the outcome of the game.
The full text of the substitute player policy is posted on our website at http://www.milezeroultimate.com/?services=subbing
To register as a sub, create a profile and join the FREE event “Substitute Player 2017-18”
Additionally, you may sign up on the sub list to advertise your availability to captains.
Short term pains for long term gains! Ultimate NL will now be collecting our own PSO fees rather than having the individual leagues collect them and then forward them along to Ultimate NL. We have also adjusted our membership fees to be $30 starting in the summer and $15 in January.
Ultimate NL is the Provincial Sport Organization (PSO) for Ultimate in our province. Ultimate NL’s mandate is to promote the growth and development of the sport of ultimate throughout Newfoundland and Labrador and membership fees help us work toward achieving our goals. For more details on membership fees please visit the Ultimate NL website membership link.
The process is changing for a few reasons and we hope that this transition will have minimal impact on you, the membership. By collecting our own fees, Ultimate NL can maintain an up-to-date record of membership, there is more consistency keeping track between leagues and youth are more easily integrated into both the youth programs and the other leagues.
Ultimate NL fees have also changed. The Ultimate NL membership is from June 1st to May 31st. Previously Ultimate NL was on a tapering system of $30 in June, $20 in September and $10 in January. This has now been altered to $30 in June and $15 in January.
For those members that have registered on the Ultimate NL website, you will already have a registration and password. For those that have not, you will need to set up a new registration. Ultimate NL membership will need to be paid before playing in any of our affiliated leagues (i.e. MZU, SWURL or MAUL). The membership fee is a one-time a year fee and you can play in multiple leagues and tournaments once this membership is paid.
If you have any questions regarding any of this or registration, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
