Winter League Games GOING AHEAD (plus a party!)

The Techniplex will be open tonight, so games will be going ahead! We have talked to the owners and if the power goes due to the rolling blackouts, they have adequate emergency lighting/systems in place to ensure player safety. Further, in the past year alone, they have decreased their power consumption by 70%!

PLUS, if you haven’t heard, we’re having a party on Saturday at Club V! Here are all the details, it’s gonna be a time.

Before I get into the nitty gritty, here’s the exciting thing about the AGM this year: It’s going to be one hour. That’s our goal, plain and simple.

If you love the sport, want to see improvements or are sick of sitting on the sidelines, it’s time to commit (seriously, it’s not that much work). We need new ideas, and new energy, to continue growing this league and sport!

Come and listen, come and run, or come nominate someone else!

Here are the 4 things you need to know:

1. You can nominate someone in advance this year by emailing hi@milezeroultimate.com – if you think there’s someone who should be involved cause they’re plain old awesome, do it up!

2. In advance of the AGM, we’ll be releasing an Annual Report with financial, league, communications updates.

3. Here are our by-laws which explains how this all works.

VP, Communications – Facebook, web updates, emails, promotion … you get the word out. You love internet.
VP, Finance – If you have any basic business knowledge, you can step up in this role… Just fill in some spreadsheets and you’re golden.
VP, Social – you like to have fun.
VP, League – Scheduling, league organization, team building… this is your gig.
Members at Large x 6 – You help the roles out above in getting down to business.

 

Indoor Fall

Our Fall Leagues are well underway, and Indoor Fall kicks off this Monday. For more details on the League, check out the info in the menu above.  We are trying out a new league format for Indoor Fall. Basically, the website will automatically decide the schedule based on the rankings of each team. The goal being that you will always play against a team each week that offers you the most competition. More questions? 

The mysterious magical ratings ladder:

– What it is? A system that match-ups teams with similar rankings in order to give teams even games for most of the season.
– How does it calculates rankings? It uses the USAU college ranking algorithm. Want to know more about it? Read here:http://www.usaultimate.org/competition/college_division/college_season/college_rankings.aspx OR find Tiago when he is bored and he will explain it to you.
– When are the rankings adjusted? After each game, therefore it is important that all scores are entered by Tuesday!
– Games are posted on a week by week basis.
– Is it going to work from the very first game? No. At the start all teams have the same ranking score, but as the league progresses, just like with a tiered ladder, the ranking ladder should even out the playing field.
– Will we always play the same team? No, you will play at least 4 different teams before you see the same team again.
– I still don’t get it! Find Tiago and get him to explain it to you, he likes beer and colourful shorts.
