WUDi 2017 Elections

Hello WUDI!

It's time for Election Season, and the WUDi Board has 2 positions that need to be filled! We are looking for candidates for Executive Director and At-Large member.  Each position holds a 2 year term.

To apply for the WUDi Board, please submit a candidate statement for the desired position to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

 

Why would I want to take on the work of being on the WUDi Board, you ask?

 

Here are a few things to consider:

1. Board Members earn Earlybird status! Tired of frantically registering for leagues at 8 p.m. sharp and then worrying that you still might not get in because it fills up so quickly?? If you're a Board Member, you get to register early stress-free!

2. Be honest - you've probably gotten a lot out of WUDi (and the Ultimate community) over the course of your life. WUDi has provided you with high-level leagues and the great social connections that go with playing in them. Isn't it time to give back to the organization with the gift of your time?

3. Have you ever felt like you had great ideas that would make WUDi even better? Being on the Board is a great way to get your opinions heard!

4. It really doesn't take up that much time! The Board only meets in person a few times each year, and a large chunk of Board business is done via email.

 

Wondering what each position does? Take a look at the job descriptions below:

 

Executive Director: Responsible for coordinating and supervising all the efforts of the other elected and appointed members of the board.  The responsibilities include:

Winter League Registration

Hello WUDi!

 

The official announcement is here! WUDi Indoor Winter League at Chelsea Piers CT in Stamford is back for its 6th season!

 

Dates:

Earlybird Registration opens Friday, December 8th at 8 p.m.

Registration opens Sunday, December 10th at 8 p.m.

Registration closes Sunday, December 24th at 8 p.m.

 

The league will run for 12 weeks on Thursdays from 8:30pm - 10pm from January 4th to March 22nd

 

Cost:

$145 for 12 weeks of play (additional $15 for an optional WUDi Indoor reversible pinnie...same one as last year for those who played fall/winter last year)

 

Baggage:

Stringent baggage rules allow us to run a smoother draft and create balanced teams. Please observe the rules below. All baggage is subject to WUDi Board approval.

 

Baggage is limited to couples and captain pairs.

 

USAU membership:

As with other WUDi leagues, all participants must be USAU members. You must have a current 2018 waiver completed online. Because of WUDi's affiliation with DiscNY, you have the option of selecting the much cheaper "affiliate membership" when you sign up for USAU membership. This will allow you to play any WUDi or DiscNY leagues or events for the remainder of 2018, but nothing else. You may also select full adult membership, which allows you to play any USAU sanctioned events for the remainder of 2018.

 

***PLEASE NOTE***

USAU rules require that every rostered player have an active, paid 2018 USAU membership and signed waiver!! Any player who does not have a 2018 paid membership WITH signed waiver by the close of registration will be dropped from the league.  Also, any players who wish to stay on the waitlist must also have their membership and waiver up to date. Waitlisted players will be rostered to allow them to sub at any time and so must have valid memberships.

 

2018 USAU Memberships and waivers can be paid for and signed as of December 1st, 2017. Please take the time to do this prior to registration if you are planning to play.

 

What to expect:

This is some very FAST-PACED ultimate!! We play 5-on-5 on small indoor turf fields. Discs that bounce off the side curtains and are caught are in play (not off the back curtain though). As soon as a team scores, they drop the disc in the end zone and are immediately on defense as the other team picks it up. Subbing is on-the-fly and must be done between the cones at the mid-field "subbing zone" (preferably on offense!). The stall count is only to 7, so the game moves very quickly.

 

All levels of play are of course welcome, but we want everyone to be forewarned of what they're getting themselves into!
