Fundraising Reminder

Fundraising is happening this weekend. Alex from Impact will be there at 9 am. If you can make it at 9 that would be ideal!
Also, if you see this you should text someone tonight to make sure they are coming tomorrow as we would like to have as many people as possible.

If you have other questions about fundraising see the previous post item number 4. If you have further questions after that, you should meet Alex from Impact Fundraising at the main entrance to the school at 9 am and ask him.  He is very knowledgeable.

Sibley Ultimate Informational Meeting follow up


Review and follow up from Today's Informational Meeting

1) You will need to register for the league on our team as an individual!  The League registration is located at http://www.minnesotaultimate.org/minnesota-high-school-league If you go to the bottom of the page there are four large links, You will need to click on the Individual Player Registration link and follow the instructions to register. It has a five page description of what to do. If you attempt to follow the instructions and are still having difficulties you can check with Ms. Hagen, or one of the other coaches. (You will need to sign up for a youth membership with the USAU which will cost you $36)

2) The Team dues! (which we use to pay for equipment, jerseys, League fees, tournament fees, Scholarships for players who cannot afford team dues, and coach stipends) will be $50 for the season. Checks should be made out to Henry Sibley Ultimate. And can be given to coaches at practice or Ms. Hagen (coaches at practice is the prefered method of payment, but is easily forgotten).

3) Medical Form--All players will need to complete the medical form prior to playing in games.  We will put a link to the medical form in the bar on the right as soon as we can. Otherwise you will be able to pick up a form from Ms. Hagen's Room (A315) starting next week.

4) Fundraising! We are set up to do fundraising on Saturday March 24th, and Saturday March 31st. I will continue to coordinate and get info from Impact Fundraising. Everyone is expected to participate in at least one, but preferably both of the fundraising dates. Each date we will meet at Sibley at 9 am, and typically will finish around 4 or 4:30 pm. It benefits us to have parents who can help us fundraise by helping transport players to different areas to Sell coupon Cards door to door.  If you believe your parents can be of assistance please talk to them and see if they can help! (we normally make $2000-2500 annually while fundraising, but would make more if we have better participation.  Please try to attend the fundraisers!)

5) Our Scheduled for the first Five games is posted! I will attempt to get in up on the calendar. The schedule in short is that Girls Games start at 6pm on Tuesdays April 3rd, and Boys Games start at 6 on Thursday April 5th.  Please be at games prior to 5:30.  Practices once the weather improves will be outside south of the Tennis courts on Warrior Drive at 3:30; please be warmed up and ready to go at 3:25. We will end practice at 5:10 so that people can make the activities bus home.

6) Jerseys! It sounds like the Boys were interested in changing to use the Girls Jersey's from last year. The coaches will review Jersey's and try to figure out our gameplan. We would like to order Jersey's as soon as possible.  If you can post your name, Jersey Number and Size preference on below that would help us get the order in. (We may be changing Jersey companies to get Jerseys more quickly, and if that is the case we will try to get a size chart post when we know more.

If you have any other questions feel free to post in the comments below.

State Tournament Update.

Here is the email I received about the state tournament. The most important part right now is that I need a Volunteer to help out at the state tournament. If you are able to donate some time, please comment or email me so I can forward your information along. Otherwise Here is the Info.
Hello Coaches and Organizers,
It's that time of year. Before you know it your teams will be competing in the state tournament on June 3-4 at the National Sports Center! (And hopefully, on June 8 as well!) But first, we have some emailing to do.
Let me first say: THANK YOU for coaching and organizing. I hope you are having an awesome season and that states will be the perfect way to finish it up! And now, down to business.
Formats. We are working on building these on our website as well, and should have them finalized by Sunday night, if not sooner. Will be the same formats we've used in the past - divisions of 16 teams, 3 pool play games on Saturday, 2-3 bracket games on Sunday. (Open Division IV and Girls Division II may be a bit different with a different number of teams...)
Round Times. As follows:
Saturday: 8:30am, 10:30am, 12:30pm, 2:30pm
Sunday: 9:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm, 3:00pm
Competition Rules. All games to 15, point cap 17. Hard cap at 100 minutes (no soft cap). Two timeouts per team per game.
Field Map. Preliminary map attached. Still subject to minor changes (e.g., we will be getting M3 as well, and may lose the J's and get replacements elsewhere depending on conditions over the next week)
Field Food. Due to low consumption and high waste in past years, as with last year we once again will not be providing bananas and bagels at tournament central. There will, however, be concessions open during prime hours (see field map). And the NSC is surrounded by businesses selling food. Please plan accordingly.
Score reporting. We will once again use our website (powered by Ultimate central) for score reporting. More details to follow. Please prepare to have someone report every score and spirit score immediately after every game for your team. Spirit scores are required. Reporting spirit scores is a spirit issue, and it is required for your team to be eligible for the spirit award. We are also dreaming up sanctions for teams who blow this off. E.g., future eligibility, increased entry fees, public shaming, mandatory score reporting training, painting my deck, etc. If you need to get a tattoo on the back of your hand to remind you to report these scores after each game, there's plenty of time to do that, and then you'd be all set for next year as well!
Volunteers. Every team is required to provide a volunteer. The event can't run without them! Jake messaged all teams that are missing a volunteer on Friday morning. This is a final reminder that those volunteers must be identified by the time the schedule is released. If a volunteer is not identified your team may be barred from participation.
Division I Finals. The finals for Open and Girls' Division I will once again not be played over the weekend, but rather will be played in a stadium on Thursday, June 8 at Benilde St. Margaret. 2501 Highway 100 South, St. Louis Park, MN 55416. Open finals will start at 6:30 pm and Girls finals will start at 8:15 pm.
More tournament details will follow in the coming days.
Best regards,
Dave Klink
Competition Director
