Presidents’ Day

 Middle and High School Teams

are invited to participate in a TEAM tournament on Presidents’ Day, when there is no school.   Those who have more than 12 players should create another roster, to ensure that all players will enjoy a full play experience.   If we do not have full teams, we will organize teams from a hat format.  

 

This Flyer outlines the plan for the day.   Please, share it with parents, teachers and players.   Each team will be guaranteed three games.

Please complete a Player Waiver to attend.    Player fee is waiver for Peer leaders who are helping to bring new players into the game.  
 We will meet at theHIGH ROAD on Dawson, 700 Dawson, Ave.  Austin, TX  78704 at 9am.

All those who are helping to raise funds for travel, PLEASE BRING YOUR CANS.    

We are collecting Aluminum cans as a fund raiser to support travel for players to the YCC  this summer in Minnesota.  President’s Day is a collection day for our fundraiser.
Players who can name all of the US Presidents, in order, will earn a special Spirit Prize.    Start Memorizing!   
See you on the field.

Ultimate!  Play the Game…LIVE the Spirit!

Much thanks to Patrick Christmas, Owner and Founder of the Professional Ultimate Team in Austin, the SOL,  for sending a solid coaching crew including:  Ryan Purcell, MN ; Jason Holleran, FL; Chris Brooks, TX; Daniel Poindexter, TX; and Jerrod Wolfe,  KS; These professionals led a spectacular warm-up for all of our players who were the first to personally meet these professional Ultimate Players, personally.    

We look forward to the AUDL Season Opener on Saturday, April 9th, 2016.    The Austin Sol will take on the Dallas Roughnecks in House Park, Austin, TX.

Thank you to the adults who provided administrative support to help us through the day.    Thanks to Kathleen, Susan and Donna.  Your volunteerism was much appreciated.

Finally,  a very special THANKS to  Student Captains who distributed player waivers, completed rosters, and reported spirit scores for their teams.    Thank you to the coaches and parents who supported these student leaders.   We are a volunteer organization and your contribution is invaluable.  It was a great day of Ultimate!
