Winter Practices

Winter practices registration is now live.  Please see the link below.  As a reminder, players will not be allowed to practice unless they have registered for Winter dome practice and paid the registration fee (or made arrangements for a scholarship).

Since we have approval from the Governor to start practices, we have made plans to hold all our winter practices in the Braemar Dome. The dates and times vary based on level of play and gender (for the older kids). 

Both Boys and Girls Varsity will have 4 practices per month from January-March along with a couple of “bonus” practices where they will share the dome with MSL. The main practices will be held before school on Tuesday’s and Thursday’s.  MSL will have 2 practices in February and 2 practices in March all on either Saturday or Sunday. Since dome time is at a premium this year, we had to take what we could get in terms of times so there is some variance, especially with MSL. 

Here are the times for each group:

Boys (both Varsity and JV) AND Girls Varsity:

  1. January 12, 14, 26, and 28 – 8:00-10:00am
  2. February 9, 11, 23, and 25 – 8:00-10:00am
  3. March 9 and 11 - 8:00-10:00am
  4. March 23 and 25 – 8:20-9:50am

Boys Varsity and JV “BONUS” Practices:

  1. February 12 - 4:30-6:00 (NOTE DATE/Time Change) February 7 – 6:20-7:50pm
  2. March 13 – 8:50-10:20pm

Girls Varsity “BONUS” Practices:

  1. Monday February 22 - 8:20-9:50 (Note Date/Time change) February 14 – 1:10pm-2:40pm 
  2. March 28 – 6:00-7:30pm

MSL Practices:

  1. February 12 - 4:30-6:00 (NOTE Date/Time Change) February 7 – 6:20-7:50pm
  2. Monday February 22 - 8:20-9:50 (Note Date/Time change) February 14 – 1:10pm-2:40pm 
  3. March 13 – 8:50-10:20pm
  4. March 28 – 6:00-7:30PM

HURT To Following MN COVID GUIDELINES FOR WINTER ATHLETICS

Per the Governor’s order, practices must have “Pods” of no more than 25 people. If we get more than 25 to register for any group, we will split them up into smaller pods and they will remain and practice only with that group. Pods will NOT change after the first practice has started. The dome can hold 100 people so we won’t have a problem with too many people in the dome for any practice.

In addition to the same rules that applied for fall practices (cleaning discs, washing hands, etc) there will be some extra guidelines we need to follow:

  1. All players and coaches will be required to wear facemasks at ALL times while in the practice facility. That means facemasks must be worn even when on the field practicing. Coaches will need to enforce this rule as well as representatives from Braemar. 
  2. No one will be allowed to play until they have paid for the winter session. If you show up and haven’t paid or can’t pay at that time you will not be allowed to practice. 
  3. Each player and coach must complete a “COVID” questionnaire the day of practice. 

MESSAGE FROM MN ULTIMATE

MN Ultimate is planning to have a spring season. Below are some highlights from an email we received regarding this spring:

  1. We are planning on a spring season. Much of the specifics are understandably TBD, but we want it to happen, hope it can, and think there is a good possibility it will. The staff, high school and youth committees, and board of directors have been meeting and discussing the 2021 spring season for several months now. No one can predict what April and May will be like in Minnesota. Of course we are hopeful the risk isn't too great to prevent a close-to-normal-season, but we know that is a real possibility. We've spent a lot of time considering how to structure a season that gives us the greatest flexibility and chance to succeed.
  2. We hope to start the season at the same time, just make it 12 weeks long, instead of the normal nine weeks. So instead of the last week of league games being the week of May 24th, it would be the week of June 14th. Of course that means that if a state championship event is possible, we would target the weekend of June 26th and 27th.
  3. The specifics of the season structure will be developed over the coming months and will be shared with the community when appropriate and fully developed. There will also be some opportunity for input. But any questions about conference playoffs or competition modifications will be met with a "We're not exactly sure right now and ask for your patience," response. Of course what is an acceptable amount of risk, and therefore possible, in May may not be known until...well, May. 
  4. If you want to read the full text of the email and see the latest MN Sports Guidance Information, you can find it by clicking these links: MN Ultimate Message or MN Guidelines.

  • 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.

    • If your accounts are not linked under a household, and you are signed-up under a child’s account who is under 18, there will be instructions that send the waiver to a parent.  Or click on “help” and log a support ticket and ask that they consolidate your multiple accounts under your household.

  • If you run into issue with your account, submit a ticket through “Admin>Help” at the top of the site.
