Fall HS Hat League
In an effort to provide more opportunities for fall play as well as more opportunities for players without school teams, Wisconsin Ultimate is partnering with MUFA to provide a once a week, mixed, hat league for high school age players. Details:
Who: Ultimate players currently in grades 9-12
What: One-night a week hat league. Hat means you sign up as an individual or pair and get placed on a team based on ranking.
Where: Burr Jones Park, a lit field in Madison
When: Wednesday Nights 7:30-9:00 PM starting September 1st until October 30th
How much: $20 (in addition to USAU membership dues if applicable) -- Financial aid is available, please email email@example.com if you have questions
COVID Considerations : We will follow all local, national, and USAU guidelines. This may include masks on sidelines and/or when playing.
USAU Sanctioned: All members must have current USAU memberships and register for the league through their USAU accounts. If players have already played in a USAU sanctioned event in 2021 (like Madison HS league, a USAU state championship, YCC, or others) they will not need to pay any additional membership fees. If players are brand new or haven't played in events this year, they'll need a membership and since it will expire at the end of 2021 (before next season's league or state) we recommend an Affiliate Youth membership, which is the cheapest option. See below for USAU specific financial aid.
Teams: You may register as an individual or baggaged with one other person (so you'll know at least one person on your team). When you register, you'll complete a self-rating and teams will be comprised balancing those ratings to ensure hopefully competitive games. Priority in registration will be given to female matching players or male matching players who baggage with FMP.
Registration: To complete your registration you must complete ALL of the following steps. Registration will not be considered finalized until payment is recieved. Players will not be allowed to compete if they have not registered on USAU.
Register yourself for the event via your USAU account. From the My Player Account page, click "Register for Individual Events" and scroll to find our event (Madison Fall High School Hat League) and click Register. **There is a chance the league is still finalizing in the USAU system and you may need to wait a day or two to do this step; we will contact anyone who registers but can't finish
Play It Forward: USA Ultimate, Wisconsin Ultimate, and MUFA believe that financial status should not be a barrier to playing ultimate. As such, the Play It Forward program provides resources to cover USAU memberships. Please see this link for more information on how to apply. To be clear, this program is only for USAU memberships. If you need financial assistance with the $20 league fee, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
