UPDATE: Goaltimate is now FULL! Registration is closed.

What in the World is Goaltimate? 

A close cousin of Ultimate, Goaltimate is played on a smaller, half-court field in which teams of four attempt to score by throwing a disc "cleanly" through a large semicircular hoop and inside an ovoid arc of cones placed behind it. Unlike Ultimate where play stops after a goal is scored and the next point begins with a pull, in Goaltimate the scoring team retains possession and continues the flow of the game, "clearing" the disc by throwing it behind a line on the opposite end of the pitch. Goaltimate rules are similar to Ultimate with a few exceptions: stall count is five instead of ten and can be counted from anywhere on the field; picks and double teams are legal; and subbing happens in the midst of play. Check out our local Goaltimate community in action. 

Beginning Wednesday, April 5th, Ultimate Chicago is running a Goaltimate League each Wednesday until May 31st. Teams will play two hour rounds from 7:30pm - 9:30pm on lit grass fields. New this year - the league will be run with female captains! Ladies, if you're interested in captaining this year, be sure to check the box during registration.

Same Great Location: All Goaltimate league games will be played at Independence Park (Irving Park at Pulaski). Parking is available, well connected to blue line, right off the 90/94.

Registration opens on this Friday, March 10th at 7pm, so find your buddy now and get ready! (See a description of the league details here before it opens).
