Hopkins Hustle - Thank You!

What a great weekend! 60 teams, ~1200 players & coaches, ~800 spectators!

Gorgeous weather (finally!) and a whole lot of fun!  Initial financials look like we raised about $5000 for the club.

Congratulations to our Varsity teams:

  • Varsity Boys – 3rd Place out of 31 teams
  • Varsity Girls – 5th Place out of 13 teams

A HUGE THANK YOU to all of our volunteers, tournament directors, parents, coaches and players who helped make Hustle a huge success this year. We could not have done it without all of you! 

A special thank you to Tournament Coordinator, Pam Passman! This was her last Hustle. If anyone is willing to lead the charge going forward, send an email to

HURT Covid Policy

Unfortunately, Covid cases are on the rise in the community.  If players have any symptoms, please test for the next few days! Consider testing players regularly but especially before big tournaments.

Please let us know ( when a player tests positive if there was exposure to other players within the prior 24 hours.

In light of current CDC, MDH, and MSHSL guidelines, here is HURT's policy for playing after an active Covid case:

  • Days 0-5 - No playing or practicing
  • Days 6-10 - If lessening symptoms and fever‐free for at least 24 hours, players can play with masks unless player tests negative, then maks not required while playing.
  • Days 11+ - no restrictions as long as fever free for 24 hours and symptom free.

Day 0 is the first day of symptoms or a positive viral test. Day 1 is the first full day after the symptoms developed or the test specimen was collected

Why Play Ultimate?

Are you considering playing Ultimate? Here are some reasons to sign up:

  • Build Endurance: Ultimate combines the athletic endurance of soccer with the passing skills of football.
  • Learn Sportsmanship: There are no referee's in Ultimate. Players learn to call their own penalties and work out any differences by communication on the field.
  • Low Contact Sport: Players are not allowed to pull, push, or tackle other players. The sport is more about finesse!
  • Anyone Can Play: All players encourage and help other players so even the first-time player will be comfortable on the field!
  • It's Just Fun! There is a reason why it's one of the fastest growing sports in the country.
