Junior Registration Night

laying-out-kiddo

This is a friendly reminder that Junior Registration happens Thursday April 5th, from 6:00-7:30 at the Spiplex Dome. Kids will have access to the field from 6:00-7:00 throwing the disc around, doing fun games with some of this year’s amazing coaches.

We will have computers there to register online. Shirts will be available to try on, and discs available to hand out. And for those parents new to this league, we have this year’s guidebooks, which explain the program and the sport of ultimate in more detail. If not paying online, please bring a cheque, made out to Peterborough Ultimate League.

Our Thursday league games will follow, so kids and their parents can watch a game in action.

Blue Beatles vs Sstingers 7:00-8:20
Chomp vs Rhino Eyeball 8:20-9:40
Banana Pizza vs Geckos 9:40-11:00

Can’t wait to see the kids in action.

 

Board Member Positions Available

PUL Rainbow Logo

Want to learn more about PUL and contribute to our wonderful community?

Four board positions are open this year!

Though we don’t elect specific positions at the AGM, an interest and/or skills in juniors, player development, strategic planning, or membership concerns would certainly be an asset to the Board. Consider this the official call for letters of interest—send yours and/or any questions to Andrea Maxie at board@pultimate.ca by Friday April 6th.*

*Due to a glich with the new Zurulu our league-wide email did not actually send. We’ve extended the deadline to allow for this mishap.

Attention All Parents

Juniors Playing Ultimate Drawing

Anna Savoy, aged 6, shows us how eager they are to get on the field.

Please make sure you get your child(ren) signed up for our Juniors Recreational Program U9-U14, out in Bridgenorth.

If you’ve been a part of the Junior Program before, go to your Zurulu account to register. If you are already a player with a Zurulu account, but have not had a child partake in the program, you can add said child to your profile. If you are new to Juniors and the League itself, sign up is a one-two process. First you will need to make a Zurulu account. Once done, you can register your child for the program. Payment and waivers are done here too.

Or, come to our Juniors Registration Night, Thursday April 5th 6:00-7:30 at the Spiplex Dome.

Have problems? Questions? We’re happy to help. Contact Jocelyne Stone, our Operations Coordinator for help.

Better get on it. We’d hate to have any upset kids.

Wednesday Deets: Grab that Early Bird by the Horns

Run Kernels Run

** Updates below. **

Folks, we’re very close to getting the Wednesday Summer League up and running. Here are a few details to whet your appetite…

Cost: We’ll be offering an early bird special for you keeners. From April 1 – 13: $75. After that, the price goes up to $100. Payment and registration will happen together.

Who: Anyone is welcome to play, regardless of skill level. We’ll do our best to accommodate partnered players  for carpooling purposes. We’ll try to place junior players as well, with the usual provisos (designated responsible adult at the field).

How: Registration will occur individually, but players may indicate a carpool partner. Teams will be formed by draft in early May, and players will be notified of their teams before the first game.

Format: Seven on seven, cleats on grass. We’ll have some more details here once registration gets underway, but we’ll be delivering a full season of play.

So that’s a start. Got questions? Go after League Coordinator Tara MacLeod at summerwednesday@pultimate.ca.

Digital Slick: New Website, New Zuluru

PUL Site in da Kitchen

By now many of you have surely noticed a new look for pultimate.ca. It’s cleaner, allows greater posting flexibility, better news feeds, and above all, it is mobility compliant…it should look good on your phone!  Gorgeous.  It also cleans up a lot of back-end stuff that, well, needed cleaning up. And we’ll be using some of the new site functions to better facilitate league communications, event organization, and more! We’ll keep you posted as these roll out.

Huge thanks to Ryan Lowe for making all this happen. And major props are owed too to Ryan Gorman, who generously hosted the old site for many years.

You’ll notice too that Zuluru is looking a little different. This is because Zuluru guru Greg Schmidt just happened to roll out Zuluru 3 a few weeks ago! Again, mobile compliance is a big part of this upgrade.

You might find some of your old bookmarks don’t work, especially for Zuluru, so update accordingly. If you find any bugs or difficulties in the near future, please hit up Ryan Lowe with an email. He’s trouble-shooting the new site, and can pass any Zuluru-related inquiries appropriately.
