**If the fields close due to incliment weather, I will update this post by 5 pm CST.**
As of 4:51 pm CST, Whitaker Fields are open. They have closed fields 10 and 12 (where the soccer goals are to the far right) and are considering closing more at sunset.

If you’re looking for a way to avoid the drizzle, consider dinner at Buffet Palace with J for Chinese New Year. He’s meeting there for dinner at 7 pm tonight.

Let’s coach ulti for kids!!

Hey MNU/FNU~ I think we can totally do this! I will be registering for the coaching clinic. Who else is with me?

-Rach

A request came out at Winter League to get Middle School coaches and attend the Coaching clinic in Feb.

After chatting with Todd, Jason, and Chad – I think we agreed that as a group – M/FNU would be willing to coach a middle school on the weekends.  From Tina Woodings’ thoughts – this would just be a couple hours on the weekends and if we all worked together, should be a small burden for all of us and not a heavy burden for just one person.

The coaching clinic cost is about the cost of getting your background check done.  The half day to get your background check and be allowed to help out is only ~$30 and the whole coaching clinic (one day event) is ~$75

Hugs,

Paul

Texas Ultimate Gurus,

Austin is hosting a UPA Level I Coaching Clinic on February 7th! If you plan on coaching or helping out with any youth or college ultimate in Texas in 2009, this would be especially beneficial to you (for general information, professional support, and liability coverage purposes). Keep in mind that as of 2009, the UPA will require all coaches whose teams qualify for UPA College Nationals to be UPA coaching certified at the time of Nationals.

Registration is now open online. You can sign up by logging in to your UPA account and then going to: http://www.upa.org/coaches/clinics (registration will close on January 26th). It will be run by Dan Raabe, one of the UPA’s most requested clinic teachers. Location is TBA, but it will go from morning to mid afternoon on the 7th only.

Email me or Meredith Tosta (Meredith@hq.upa.org), the UPA Director of Youth Development, with questions. Also, please forward on to your team, league, or anyone in Texas or the surrounding area that you think would be interested!

Thank you!
Cara Crouch

IM fields opening 1/20/09

Wish I had news of MNU and FNU games being sooner rather than later, but the IM fields will officially open 1/20/09. They’re technically open now, but close at 7pm, which doesn’t really help us out too much. So, we’ve still got a little longer to wait.

The first game back will be Friday, January 23rd.

I’ll make a post for that game when we get a bit closer, just thought I’d share the news with everyone. Hope everybody is having a great break.
