Spring 2023 - FMP - Tuesday - Coached

Welcome to Tuesday FMP Coached League!

Welcome to Tuesday FMP Coached League!

We are excited to work with you this season!  This email is a bit long, but hopefully it will answer some questions you may have.

Start date:  We will, hopefully, start Tuesday, April 11thTime is 6:00-7:30 every Tuesday night.  We will be playing at Manchester Park and will gather in the area around fields 1 and 2. 

Spring in WI is known for its unpredictable and rainy weather, so there are bound to be some cancellations due to weather.  All cancellations decisions will be made no later than 4:00 pm on the day of play and you should get an email and you can always check www.mufa.org to see if games have been cancelled.

How the league is organized:  We will do an hour of skill development and then, play mini, other ultimate frisbee based games, or full field scrimmages/games.  We will wait until later in the season to play full field scrimmages/games because, over the years, we have learned it is easier (and more fun) to play with fewer people, on a smaller field, and get more touches on the disc.  This is where mini comes in.  It is super fun! 

You have been assigned teams, but as you may have noticed, there is only one scheduled game listed.  We won't have a schedule of games because that isn't how the league works.  Don't worry, you will have a team and you will be playing!  There just won't be a schedule!  

Meet the coaches:  There is a coach assigned to each team and I think they are labeled "coach" on the roster.  Follow this link to learn more about the coaches.    

What to bring:

  • Wear clothes that are comfortable to run around in and may get dirty.
  • Dress for the weather and plan to be outside for 90 minutes
  • Water and snacks
  • Cleats are preferred, but running/tennis shoes work just fine.
  • A dark shirt and a white shirt so we can designate teams

What you get:  Excellent coaching, a frisbee, and two free pitchers of beer at the Great Dane after each session.

We may have some homework for you between sessions just to cover some information outside of clinic so we can focus on doing things versus always talking about things.  I will send that information out as needed.

We are SO looking forward to seeing y'all this week!

Mo Kappes (league director) and Tuesday coaches (too numerous to name!)
