Below you will find information about summer league and club tryouts. Summer league registration started today. The Co-Ed West League is in Carol Stream at Redhawk Park on Tuesdays at 6:30. If you are interested in playing, I would strongly encourage you to register immediately. The space is limited and every year people get turned away.
Ultimate Chicago is excited to bring you our 22nd Summer League!
Registration will not open on the same day for all leagues. Registration for the West League will open Friday, May 3rd at 3 pm and will close on Monday, May 20th. Registration for the Monday/Wednesday Coed Rec League and Wednesday Individuals League will open at 8 pm on Sunday, May 5th and will close on Monday, May 20th. As always, we encourage quick registrations and payments.
In continuing our commitment in CUSL to true coed play (4:3 male to female ratio), we would like to remind everyone about the details of registration for the Monday/Wednesday recreational leagues. First, any registration that does not have as many women as men (i.e. individual man, buddy pair of men, 2 men paired with 1 woman) will be considered pending until the registration period ends. After registration ends, the remainder of the male roster spots will be filled by these registrations. The two factors determining number of male roster spots and priority are:
1) Number of women in that league.
2) Order of complete registration (fully paid and waiver signed)
The number of teams (and therefore the number of male roster spots) will be determined entirely by #1. Obviously, priority will then be given based on #2. Note that male buddy pairs will be give spots in the league individually based on order of complete registration; once the whole pair is in the league, then they will of course be placed on the same team. Please don’t despair too much if you don’t end up in the coed recreational Mon/Wed league as we have a number of leagues this year which should allow us to accommodate everyone that wants to play.
A few other notes: Buddy groups of up to four people are allowed (maximum 2 per gender), however their registration status depends on the number of women in the group (see table).
Buddy Group - Registration Status
1 man; 0 women - Pending
2 men; 0 women - Pending
2 men; 1 woman - Pending
0 men; 1 woman - Accepted
1 man; 1 woman - Accepted
0 men; 2 women - Accepted
1 man; 2 women - Accepted
2 men; 2 women - Accepted
Moral of the story: if you’re a guy and want to play in the Monday/Wednesday Rec League, sign up right when registration opens or find a woman to pair up with. Also, any male chosen as a captain will also be granted automatic entry into the league. Please let us know BEFORE registration opens (at [address removed]) that you are interested in captaining, as we hope to select all captains as soon as possible.
