Are you looking for a group activity to do this summer? Well registration for the 2016 Gorge Ultimate Adult Co-Ed Summer League is now open!
Gorge Ultimate Summer League is an annual tradition that will continue this year with games being played at Wy’east Middle School and Horizon Christian School in Hood River on Wednesday nights. The league, produced by Gorge Ultimate, is open to players of all skill levels and of all athletic ability. This is a Gorge-wide league, with players coming from multiple communities from throughout the region.
All players register as “free agents” and are assigned to a team. Captains do their best to create balanced teams made up of experienced and new players to ensure teams are as equal as possible. “The ultimate goal of summer league—no pun intended—is to provide a positive experience for all players so that we can grow the sport in the Gorge,” says Preston Brown, this year’s league organizer.
Gorge Ultimate is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Ultimate Frisbee in the Columbia River Gorge. The club is not affiliated with the Ultimate Players Association and does not provide liability or accident insurance for players. Any person 18 years of age or older is eligible to play in Summer League, provided they register, pay the league fees, execute the waiver and release of liability and agree to abide by the league rules.
The regular season runs from Wednesday, June 15 to Wednesday Aug. 3 and is played from 6-8 p.m. An end-of-the-season tournament takes place Sautrday, Aug. 6. Cost of the league is $40, with registration ending Sunday, June 5. For more info, head to gorgeultimate.leagueapps.com.
