Candy Bar Fundraiser - This Thursday

We will be handing out boxes of candy bars during practice THIS THURSDAY! All players must either be in attendance with money to pay for the boxes OR have made previous arrangements to get a box (see below).  

  • Boxes handed out at practice on Thursday Oct. 13th. All players must be in attendance or have someone there that can pick up their box.
  • Other arrangements can be made ahead of time if necessary. If you would like to make other arrangements for box pickup, please email Michelle Fraser
  • Each box costs $120 and players can sell them at their own pace.Boxes must be paid for at the time of pickup. Payment options include check (to: Hopkins Ultimate), Venmo (Hurt Treasurer), or cash.

Tips For Selling The Candy Bars

Door to door has worked out well in the past and players can usually sell out within 2-3 hours of walking the neighborhood.  Evenings before dark or late Sunday mornings seem to be good times to sell.

We recommend selling with a friend or several friends and each of them pick a side of the street.

A couple of tips for selling:

  • Players should wear their jersey or shirt with the logo if they have one. People respond better to uniformed kids. 
  • Always introduce yourself and tell the person why you are there. 
    • Be specific about the purpose - We don't receive school funds and each candy bar sale helps offset costs for items like uniforms, practice fields, league dues and tournaments. 
  • If there is a No Soliciting sign on or near the house, make sure to skip that home and go to the next one. 
  • Options for selling other than door to door:
    • Parents can take boxes to work
    • Kids have sold a school and religious events. 
    • Online through social media platforms (but make sure to stick to people you know for delivery purposes).

HURT Covid Policy

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.

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 (hurtultimate@gmail.com) when a player tests positive if there was exposure to other players within the prior 24 hours.

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.
