FAQ: What Ultimate Can I Play Over Winter??

Sadly, DUFF won't be hosting a league on weeknights this winter.  Despite our best efforts, no fields were available with floodlights in the Eastern Suburbs, City or Inner West.  All is not lost!  Read below for all the awesome Ultimate you can play in the coming months.  There is something for beginners, intermediate and advanced players.
 

Keep It Social!

The best way to connect with other DUFF players and find a team for the Winter Series, or simply organise a pickup game or a throw around, is to join the DUFF Facebook Group. If you do one thing, do that!

DUFF Winter Series: Save the Dates!

Location: Moore Park West

Event 1: Sunday 11th May 9:30-16:30
Event 2: Sunday 15th June 9:30-16:30
Event 3: Sunday 13th July 9:30-16:30
Event 4: Sunday 17th August 9:30-16:30
 

If we can't give you a weekly fix, we're going to make it some epic monthly Ultimate in Moore Park!  You'll be able to bring a team of friends from DUFF Summer League or anywhere else, and if you don't have a team we'll find you one.  We'll strive to make the standard inclusive for all players, from brand new to advanced.  A full day of Ultimate to keep you warm, then delicious dinner at the pub afterwards (with food and drink specials to boot!).

DUFF Mixed Squad and Beginner Training

Location: TBA
Times: Saturdays or Sundays TBA

Last year the DUFF Mixed team, "Duff Love" trained hard every Sunday all winter and competed at the NSW Mixed Ultimate Championships.  This year we have even bigger plans!  Visit the DUFF Mixed page for the sign up form and get involved. Everyone is welcome!!


We've had emails from a few of you wanting to start to learn to play Ultimate.  Welcoming beginners is one of DUFF's core objectives, and our amazing Coaching Coordinator Ed Law will be organising practice sessions for you (likely taking place before the Mixed Squad training) on weekends. 

Join the DUFF mailing list to hear the announcement of the first session

Northern Suburbs League on Monday Nights

A team or two are forming to travel out to northern Sydney for the bigger league up there on Monday nights.  They're looking to play in the intermediate Division 3 and Advanced Division 2.  
 
Check out this form for info and fill it out to hear about the team
 

Inner West League

Our friends at Inner West League often take players of all levels on mid-season:

Pick-up Games

Pick-up = Casual, no-strings-attached, fun, social Ultimate.  And it's free!

They're all really welcoming to any players and we think they're the best way for newcomers and visitors to get a taste of Sydney Ultimate and meet some regular players.

The Coogee Beach game is on almost every Sunday evening year round at the moment and the Glebe Tuesday night is taking off again.  Check out:

Big Discount for Early Sign-ups for DUFF Summer League!

Once you've digested all that turkey and admired all the fireworks, DUFF League will be right back into it on January 6, 2014.

We're offering a discounted registration rate of $50 to everyone who signs up before January 6.  This is partly because of the two rain-out weeks in the spring season.  The new TopScore registration system is strict, though!  So hurry up and sign up by January 6, as after that rego goes up to $65.

DUFF Monday League is open to all-comers, and is designed to build confidence in new and experienced players alike.  If you've never played Ultimate, we recommend you also come along to the four FREE introductory coaching sessions starting Thursday, January 9.  There, you will learn the basic rules, throws and the best ways of moving around the Ultimate field.  If you can't make those Thursdays, don't stress: every Summer League team has 2-3 "mentor" players who will coach you as you play!

What you get

  • 11 weeks of league on a team with people of all experience levels (including National/Australian representatives)
  • An awesome party at the end of the season where you can have fun with your team and all your new friends!
  • A free Frisbee for people who’ve never played in an Ultimate league before
  • Free beginner-oriented training included on four Thursday nights commencing January 9.  This a new thing for DUFF and we’re excited about it!

It’s $50 for all that if you sign up by January 6.  Bargain!
