The 2017 Beginner Beach League at Montrose Beach starts Thursday June 22nd and runs for six weeks through July 27th.  

There will be "study halls" every Thursday night at 6:30pm for beginners who would like to develop basic skills. Clinics and games will run from 7-9pm.  The first few weeks will be a mix of drills, skill work, and playing. The later weeks will be all gameplay. Games will be played to a time cap rather than a score. 

Players can sign up as individuals or with a buddy.  You are eligible for this league if you have played two or fewer seasons of league OR are buddying with a brand new player. Cost is $25. Sign up today!

Ultimate Chicago is piloting a new registration option for Summer League. Women may sign up to be on a sub list at a discounted rate to become part of a pool of subs who may be called upon to play on a game by game basis. The sub pool is part of Ultimate Chicago’s ongoing efforts to provide a range of options to women playing ultimate. The intention of the new sub pool is to:

  • Help teams maintain the gender ratio and avoid teams playing savage or down a player. Women who are signed up for the standard league registration will request subs from the list when they are unavailable to round out their team’s numbers.
  • Allow women who can commit to less than 50% of games an alternative option to play Summer League. The sub pool may be appropriate for women who play club, have conflicting travel plans or otherwise cannot commit to the full leauge.

Currently, the sub list is a pilot program for women playing Summer League. Ultimate Chicago is testing the feasibility of a sub list in this league and may extend the sublist option to men in the future. 

Note that playing time is not guaranteed and will be determined based on requests from players signed up for the standard registration. Sub list administrators will rotate through the sub pool based on availability and reach out to potential subs to maximize subbing options. 

To sign up, provide your contact information and availability here. Sub list administrators will follow up with you for payment and with more detailed instructions on how the sub list will work. Registration fees are $33 for South League and $20 for North League.

Registration for this sub list will close on Wednesday, May 31, so sign up today!

Please don't hesitate to reach out with questions! You can contact Jen Wu at summer@ultimatechicago.org or Emily Sipfle at sublist@ultimatechicago.org.
