We just moved back to the bay after 4 years in Boston. Can someone fill me in on the youth scene? Is there a high school league? I know the Bay Area is still slowed because of Covid. I have a 13 year old daughter that played in Boston and is interested in playing again when things start up.
Barely used cleats. Would love if these went to good use. Size 8 1/2 womens, euro 40. super comfy. This is my 3rd pair of same type of cleats before injury which permanently sidelined me 😔 They’re officially women’s but are the same as men’s model. Have superfeet inserts.

Hey youth Ultimate coaches, (If this post isn't allowed here, please feel free to delete.) As a youth coach, I've tried to give players equal playing time, while still assembling the strongest lines of players. I found this was often difficult to do, and I needed a tool to help me keep track of players -- who is on the field and who is on the sideline, who has played the least and most, who is next to go on, etc. So I wrote an app for iPhone and iPad (maybe Android coming later?) to help Ultimate coaches manage games. It helps you keep track of players, score, and game time. If you're interested, search in the App Store for "Disc in!". It's $2.99 (not trying to get rich, just trying to break even and help the Ultimate community!). Thanks, and I hope someone finds it useful! Jacob (Seattle area Ultimate)
An interesting idea from SoCal.
A friend and I have been inspired to join a beginner ultimate league--the BADA mixed winter league in the East Bay--but I can't find some basic information about it online. Does the league just consist of one match a week, for seven weeks? Or do teams hold practices? (As beginners, it would be hard to just join in a game without more playing or practice time.)
Calling all mixed teams! Discos Calientes is back!
Looking for a boys High School Team interested in a scrimmage before the summer with our Drake High team next week-end. Anyone? Have good fields in Marin. Let me know and please feel free to let others know - could host more than one!
Any teams out there who need some practice discs? I have 25-30 new and used discs to give away. Message me if you're in the south bay or peninsula.
