The Annual Ultimate Gift Hat Tournament Series is upon us again!
The Ultimate Gift is a nationwide tournament series to benefit Toys For Tots. Throughout the month of December, organizations partner with SAVAGE and Ultimate Central to bring ultimate communities together for a great cause. The goal is simple - play ultimate so a child can play with a toy on Christmas.
To register visit:
FYI - there is a cap to how many can participate due to field space, so make sure you actually register on the website!
In addition to the fee to register for the event we will be requiring a donation of a toy valued at a minimum of $10. We are also looking at setting up a registry through Toys R Us so you can make purchases online. We will keep you updated as this progresses

SWURL Fall League Update #3 :)
Fall League registration has been extended for 3 days, we'd love to have a few extra players! Fall league will be awesome!!! Register by Oct 4th!
SWURL Fall League Update:
Unfortunately, we were unable to secure a Thursday night spot, however we are able to have full field from 8-9 on Friday nights. The board understands that this is not an ideal time, but it is all we were able to get.
We are opening up registration today (September 20th) and it will close on October 1st. All league information that was provided below will remain the same. We strongly recommend signing up as soon as possible so the board can determine if we have enough numbers to go ahead with the league.
** IMPORTANT: This league is going to be dependent on numbers of people registered. We will need at least 48 women to go ahead with a league. Also keep in mind that SWURL has 30 days to cancel our request with the Techniplex and hopefully not take a huge monetary hit. **
We are excited to get this league underway and hope that we can get enough interest to go ahead with it.

We are pleased to announce SWURL Fall League 2013*
Where: INDOORS!! At the Techniplex.
When: Thursday early evening* from October 3rd to December 5th
How much: $70 for 10 weeks ($7 per game) + $20 (UNL fee) if you have not played MZU or SWURL since June 1st 2013.
Style: 5 on 5; you can sign up solo or with a buddy.
Format: The format will be 5 on 5. This year we will try something new. We read your responses to our survey and you asked for 1) more instruction and 2) bringing the competitive and recreational tiers back.
How will this work:
When you sign up you will let us if you prefer to play competitive only, recreational only or, play both for competitive and recreational tiers.
Every week you (and your buddy) will be assigned to a different team, which will be posted ahead of time. This way, players will be able to try more competitive playing or helping to teach newer players.
