Summer Ultimate

For those who are asking, we are changing our summer programs to accommodate the development of our club players and to cooperate with the University of Texas Summer Camp Schedule.  We will not hold our usual June session, as UT will host on those dates this year.

We will hold our regular August Session, and extend the day for Club players…see below!

————————————

Please, join us each and every Friday night this summer for our

SUMMER SCRIMMAGE

We will host a weekly pick-up game at Fulmore Middle School, which will start each Friday TWO HOURS before SUNSET.    The start time will change as the light changes , so that you can spend each Friday Night  on South Congress AVE, playing Ultimate until dark!    This game is open to players who are at least 10 years of age. In past years, we have been using Federal and city grants on the  Fulmore Campus.   That money has been eliminated, and  we are paying a field use fee to AISD.   Please,  complete this player waiver to participate, and pay us a small fee to help support our program in 78704.    Sorry about that….AISD is charging us to play on their fields. Scholarships are available for those who wish to apply.

Have an Ultimate summer.
