Roadrunner Ultimate is unaffiliated with Eckstein Middle School. As a result, we are a self funded team. Dues are collected from each player each season. Dues cover field rental costs, jerseys, league entry fees, Spring Reign entry fees, coaches stipends, insurance, equipment, and more. Scholarships and payment plans are available - no one will be turned down due to monetary reasons.  Go to the registration page and let us know you want to play!
