South Sound Ultimate Players: Leagues
We have leagues in the spring, fall, and winter. Spring is our largest league, designed to introduce beginners to the game. Fall is our most competitive league, intended for players with previous experience. Winter league is played indoors in a gym. Spirit of the Game (SotG) and playing with respect for opponents and teammates are important areas of focus in all of our leagues.
Andy & Troy started the first Olympia ultimate frisbee league in 2003 with just 40 people. For those who were not around then, during this time there was no guarantee that we would have enough for 7s at pick-up, and on some days there was a telephone tree (pre-texting days) to encourage people to come out. At that time, we only played March through October and we only went to tournaments occasionally, if we could find enough women to attend. Just eight short years later we had a 90-person spring league, a fall league under the lights, an indoor winter league, a traveling team that attends at least six tournaments a year, and ladies pick-up. All these things are a direct result of that first league Andy & Troy started. Thanks guys!
