Fantasy Ultimate League

In this league, each player has a "salary" based on their performance in games, similar to professional sports fantasy leagues. A player's salary is calculated using various game statistics, such as points scored and passes dropped. Players are traded to other teams throughout the season, as each team's General Manager balances their "budget" and keeps the total value of their team below the salary cap.

It's going to be fun, competitive, and very social! New for 2018, there will be some format and rule changes to encourage gender equity, and to reward team performance in addition to individual performance. For example, every other week, there will be a "bonus" rule in effect, e.g., if everyone on the line touches the disc in a single possession and the team scores, it's worth 2 points instead of 1, OR if the disc goes out of bounds, then a woman must bring it in. Do you have ideas for additional bonus rules that will encourage inclusive play? Or ideas for other ways to improve Fantasy League? Submit them here, and we'll select some to use throughout the season.

Format: Co-ed 7v7 play; gender ratio of 4:3; format and rule updates to reward team performance and improve gender equity

Players who don't get on a team will receive a refund, and will be added to the waitlist.

Interested in being a General Manager?

Each team needs a General Manager (GM) to ensure that the team meets the salary cap requirements of the league. GMs meet weekly with the Commissioner to conduct trades. If you're interested in being a GM, you can indicate your interest during the registration process for Fantasy League. GMs will be selected by the Commissioner from the pool of applications, and will be guaranteed a spot in the league.

Interested in being a Statistics Collector?

This type of league cannot survive without volunteers to act as stats collectors. Stats collectors track various game statistics, so should not be players in the league, as they need to be dedicated to this task throughout the whole game.

Volunteer stats collectors can help out for a game or two, or for the full season. At the end of the season, all volunteer stats collectors will be entered into a draw for $100. Every game worked will count as an entry into the draw. To volunteer as a stats collector, fill out this short form.
