Quick FAQ

What is a hat league?
Our hat leagues are where players join individually (or with one friend) rather than as a full team. Players rate themselves during registration, and after registration closes, we form teams based on the player ratings to try and have the most balanced teams possible. Full teams are not permitted to join the fall league.

What is baggage?
To "bag" with someone, associate your registration with someone else's to ensure you get on the same team. So you can bag with your friend, S/O, or whomever you choose, and they will be placed on the same team as you.

What does MMP or FMP stand for?
MMP means male-matchup preferred or male-matching player.
FMP means female-matchup preferred or female-matching player. 

What do Mixed, Open, FMP, MMP mean for the league names?
These reference the format that the league is played in. 

Mixed: Alternating 4MMP/3FMP - 3MMP/4FMP gender-ratio (note: this ratio only applies to outdoor ultimate)
Open: Teams of any gender-matching preferred players, no required ratio on the field
MMP: Only Male-Matching Preferred players can play in this league
FMP: Only Female-Matching Preferred players can play in this league

Agender, gender non-conforming (GNC), genderqueer, or gender fluid players are encouraged to join leagues and match up with the players that they feel most comfortable playing with and marking. The goal is to make all MUFA programs more welcoming and safe for all athletes.

Fall League - Lottery Update

We've just gone through the first wave of lottery selections. Players selected in the first wave have until Wednesday @ 11:59pm to complete their registration. 

 

We've reopened registration until the next lottery wave. 

 

Next Lottery Wave: Thursday Evening

 

Here are some updates on the capacity of each league:

 

Space Available

Both single-gender-matching leagues still have about 50% of the space available.

Sunday - FMP only - (up to 8 teams) - Fields: Demetral (6/7:30 pm)

Sunday - MMP only - (up to 8 teams) - Fields: Demetral (6/7:30 pm)

Thursday - Mixed - (up to 8 teams) - Fields: Demetral (6/7:30 pm)

 

**Space may come available based on how many players do not complete their registrations by Wednesday

 

You can still register for any league, including the filled ones, as space may be available on Thursday. 

 

Take advantage of the rank choice lottery system!

Registering for more leagues does not increase your chance of being selected, but it does increase your of being placed into a league if selected. 

 

Our lottery works by randomly selecting a player, then looking at the leagues they've registered for. We then place the player in the league they ranked the highest that still has space available. If you only have one league registered, and it's full, then you won't get into any league. 

 

If you register for multiple leagues, even if the one your 1st choice is full, you will get placed into your highest-ranked league that still has space available.

Fall 2023 Registration Information

Welcome to Fall League! Every league in the Fall League is a 'hat' league. A hat league means you sign up either by yourself or with one friend, and you are placed onto a team with other players by the MUFA league directors. You will get a long-sleeve shirt, and each team can enjoy two free pitchers of beer at the Great Dane after every game. 

This season we will use a lottery system to start registration. In the lottery system, you register for one or more leagues you want to play in, rank them based on preference, and we will randomly select players from the lottery and place them into their highest preferred league that still has space. You can read more details about that here. 

Games will take place at Demetral Park and McGaw Park. Burr Jones has been removed from the rotation while Madison Parks assess strategies to refurbish the field for long-term success.
