Tidewater Tuneup Girls Update

Do to a lack of interest in the weekend of Nov 5-6 the girls have been moved to the following weekend Nov. 12-13, this will allow for more girls teams to attend. Currently Allerdice, YHB X, YHB Y, and YHB Z, and Woodside are attending and we have interest from 1 other team who will make a decision in the next few days. The girls will play a round robin on Sunday of 4 or 5 games starting at Apx. 9am and ending between 3-4:30pm, due to the reduced length and amenities provided the entry fee will be $150 with a $25 discount for additional teams. Hotel information will be the same as that listed on the Carrollton Clash page for that weekend. This will also give the girls a chance to watch some good college womens ultimate if the schedule allows for byes.

Kit Kat Info

Hotel Info:
Homewoods Suites
4200 City Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19131

The hotel was getting low on rooms so we got 6 rooms held, we should only need 3-4 though depending on numbers of players and parents attending. The extras are for any parents planning on going, email or talk to Coach Richard or Coach Chappell to make sure we still have our 4. Then you will just call up and tell them you want to switch a room from Richard Rudnicki over to your name. We will cancel any extra hotel rooms on Oct. 19 to make sure there are no charges.

Field Info:
Edgely Fields
4001 Edgely Drive
Philladelphia, PA 19131

The fields are just a mile or two from the hotel so they should be easy to get to.

Any new players who haven't attended a tournament can check out the Fall Brawl Info 2 post about what sort of stuff you need to bring for the tournament, and yes this hotel has a pool.

1) Please pack light, we have limited space in the passenger vans and occasionally some extra space in a parents car, but we don't have room for you to bring huge bags.
2) Pack according to the weather,, search Princeton, NJ that will give you a good idea of what the weather will be like so you know what to bring.

Water Bottles
Something to change into Saturday after games
Something to sleep in
Swim Trunks

Parent Meeting Recap

Thanks to everyone who attended, great to see a bunch of new folks out to learn about ultimate and the club. We look forward to working with you all this year.

Dues: Fall dues will be $40 which covers the costs associated with tournaments including, entry fees, transportation, hotels. We are asking that the girls pay the same $40 fee for the fall even though at this time we do not have the same number of tournaments for them. We are searching for additional tournaments this fall but if none can be found we will either bring them to an extra tournament in the spring or have them pay reduced dues in the spring.

Jerseys: We will get new price quotes for jerseys as quickly as possible, jerseys will be from Spin and will be the same designs as last year. A rough guess of the price will be $60-65 which will get you shorts, a white jersey, and a purple jersey.

Physicals: While we are a club and not a sport as recognized by the school, we are in reality one of the most physically demanding sports at Woodside. Therefore we request that all players get a physical and turn it in to Coach Chappell. They are available from the school on October 12 immediately following school in the clinic for $20.

USAU Membership: Membership in USAU is required for players to be eligible to play at the State Tournament in the spring. USAU membership runs each calendar year so purchasing the membership now is not necessary as it would expire on Dec. 31. We will get everyone to purchase their USAU membership in the spring.

Tournaments: A list of tournaments can be found on the Calendar page, and shows what tournaments we plan on attending, when and where they are being held, and which teams will be attending. As always Parents are welcome to attend the tournaments, parents will have to provide your own transportation to and from the tournament and lodging if necessary. We always list our hotel information as far in advance as possible so you can stay at the same location as the team.

Support: Your volunteer help will be needed at the tournaments we host, more information will be available on this when we get closer to those events. We can also always use any donation of drinks or snacks for the team as we head to tournaments. If you are ever attending a tournament and have an extra seat in the car it can be very helpful in getting the team where they need to be. Anything you are able to do is greatly appreciated. As always we wouldn't be as successful as we are without the support of all our great ultimate parents.

Woodside Ultimate Camp 2011 Wrapup

It was a great morning for some Ultimate, the rain held out for until about 1-1:30, and we had a great group of about 40 players out to learn about Ultimate. We worked with our new players to improve their throwing, marking, and defense, as well as getting a better understanding of a besic vertical offense. Our older guys worked on things like improving their break throws and started getting some conditioning in. Our ladies did a combination of the two as we brought our new and returning players together. Everyone worked on their layouts and took advantage of the soft ground and wet conditions. We wrapped it up with pizza and cookies, thanks to our awesome parents for bringing that together for us.

Friday, September 23, 2011

Another Camp Option

This is really more of a clinic, its just a few hrs on 1 day and its pretty cheap, but you also get to see some sick ultimate played. There are close options in Arlington, VA and Chapel Hill, NC. This would be great for anyone planning on playing varsity next year but particularly the younger guys. Go HERE all the info for dates and the online registration are under the workshops tab.

Team Banquet

We will be having a team banquet on Friday June 17, 2011 to end the year, pick an underclass captain for Varsity for next year (we will be retaining our 2 senior capts), say goodbye to our seniors, and generally just wrap everything up. The banquet will be a potluck so each person will need to bring a food or drink item. We will have the banquet at Woodside HS in the cafeteria at 6pm.

Will - Pasta Salad
Katie - Pasta Salad
Haley - Chicken Tenders
Jailene - Drinks
Adante - Drinks

Another Summer Camp Option

This one is much closer to home and cheaper than the other ones out there, plus it will give you a chance to learn the "enemies" ways and report back since its run by Dave and Will from YHB. In all seriousness though it would be a great opportunity for some of the younger guys who are trying to develop their game over the summer. Learn more about Capital Ultimate Camp here.

Summer Ultimate

Heres all the info about summer ultimate, some of it for the second time, so everyone will know whats going on.

Summer League
You can learn everything you need to know about Tidewater Summer League here but the quick rundown is games are on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings, they are played at Nike Park in Carrollton, VA (where Tidewater Tuneup was held this year), cost is $45 for all USAU members which everyone that went to States is, its mixed so probably 5 guys 2 girls on the field at a time, and it should be decent play. All Woodside players are strongly encouraged to play as a chance to get better over the summer and stay sharp. You should be able to work out some carpool since a lot of Woodside people have said they are playing and there will be some of you on every team.

Woodside Elite
You can get more info for Woodside Elite at the facebook group here this is a team of current and former players as well as Coach Richard and former Coach Christian Lesnett. The team will travel to a couple tournaments and Club Sectionals during the July to Early September timeframe. There will be tryouts (schedule on Facebook), everyone who has intentions of playing on varsity next year should be there. Even if you don't make the Elite team you can still come to practice all year and there may still be 1 or 2 chances for you to play as an alternate or as a B-team. This is the best chance for young guys to get better and is a HUGE first step towards our goal of winning states in 2012.

States Recap Part 2

Yes that increase in USAU Youth Dues is paying for something, as for what, the answer is apparently a lot of pretty sweet wooden frisbees

Woodside Varsity looking good in their stylish Spin Jerseys covered in the blood, sweat, and dirt of one of the most successful weekends in the program history.

JV somehow still standing even after playing more games than any other team at the tournament and stepping up to play in both the placement and JV brackets.

The Girls team with their new friends from Rockbridge, and their mascot, after their most successful state tournament ever.

States Recap Part 1

Varsity - 2nd Place in the Open Division, Beat LC Bird HS in the Semi-finals on Universe point, lost to YHB in the finals. The guys played their butts off all weekend and put together one of their strongest and overall most consistent tournaments in Woodside history. Proud as heck of every one of them and the work they put in all year to get there.

JV - Tied for 7th Place in the Open Division, Played in both the placement bracket and the JV bracket on Sunday and were solid in both. Extremely strong showing from the future of the Woodside program, we have a lot of talented guys to build with.

Girls - 5th Place in the Girls Division, Beat YHB Newbies for the first ever Woodside Girls team win at a VA State Championships, a major accomplishment for the young ladies that no other team had ever managed. Several of the girls mixed in with JV on Sunday to provide some extra bodies and played extremely well against the guys. The Girls have a chance to be some of the best and most successful to ever come through Woodside Ultimate.

Pictures and additional information to come in additional posts. We will also begin posting some information about bringing back Woodside Elite so people have a chance to play this summer. Also check out Tidewater Summer League in a previous post for another chance to play this summer.

Letter to the Parents

Good morning Woodside Ultimate players and parents,

Well it has been an interesting year and our season is quickly coming to an end. Our last event of the year will be the VA State Championship Tournament held annually in May at LC Bird High School in Chesterfield (Richmond) VA. This year States is on May 14-15th and currently the organizers are looking for different fields on which to play, they are having problems with their fields. We will keep you informed on the blog ( and by email. Everything we do now is to get ready for States which leads me to my next two points;

· USAU (United States Ultimate) high school registration/membership for all
· Request for extra funds/dues due to our financial situation

· USAU Registration: First let me say thank you to all those who have paid spring dues and for jerseys. Bringing up the subject of asking parents to pay more money is always difficult however Ultimate is still a fairly inexpensive sport to play. One thing that is required every year for our players to play in States is for them to become USAU members. The cost is $29 for high school players per calendar year and this membership mainly covers players under USAU’s insurance in any USUA sanctioned tournaments. They will receive a USAU membership #, magazines, stickers, etc. Since States is organized and run by our governing body, USAU, all players need to become members in order to participate. Have your kids show you the site,, and click on membership information under the membership tab, then click the join online link. If everyone can pay on line it would expedite our process to prepare our roster. Let me know if anyone cannot pay on line and we will work it out. This needs to be completed by May 11, 2011 and your child needs to tell us the USAU Id number then are assigned so they can be added to the appropriate roster. If this is not completed your child can not play at States per USAU guidelines.

· Now as for our club’s financial situation. We do not know the exact amount that we will have to pay for States because too many players have not paid the $25 spring dues. As of now, Richard and I believe that we will be significantly short funds to pay for States; which includes entry fees, rental vans/gas, and hotel rooms. There are two reasons for this situation. The main reason for this is because of the jersey fiasco. Briefly, we ordered varsity jerseys through a company, Rep Ultimate, who messed up our order. They printed wrong color jerseys, messed up numbers and fonts, and were not on time with anything. This put us behind in our other jersey orders. After receiving the reimbursement from them, we found a company, Spin, who could do the jerseys (a white and purple and shorts) for about $12 more per set ($62 instead of $50), this was the lowest price amongst all other companies. Richard and I initially tried to absorb this extra cost with proceeds from our tournaments but we did not make enough for this to work.

The second reason is reduced dues for the spring season. In the past dues have ranged from $35-45 for the spring season to help cover the increased expenses of tournaments, this year we only requested $25, again with the though that the increased number of tournaments we were hosting would help offset the difference. With the failure of our spring HS tournament to come together this idea did not work.

One way to help solve this situation is to have everyone pay their spring dues ($25), allowing us to make accurate estimates of how short of funds we are. Looking back at my receipt book, I see a lot of players who have not paid. We have tried to contact everyone, but everyone needs to come see me to double check, there is also a list attached of all players we believe owe money. We need everyone to pay as soon as possible. In addition, we are asking everyone, if possible, to pay $15 extra dues/jersey fees to help recoup expenses. Anyone willing to donate money would be greatly appreciated. We do understand that this could present a financial hardship for some families, and we will accept whatever anyone can give. We are simply trying to make States weekend as enjoyable for our players as possible.

As for the financial breakdown for States, we are going to need money for hotel rooms, transportation, and tournament entry fees. Our first thought to reduce costs for States this year is to put together a carpool to States and eliminate the need for vans. Usually two vans cost us about $350 and the cost of gas which is incredibly high. If we get enough parents to car pool then we could avoid that cost and use the funds for hotel rooms. The parents staying would also help reduce the number of hotel rooms we need.The one thing we do not want to do is take away the hotel stay. This is something the kids enjoy, swimming in the pool and the hot tub, etc. and has been a tradition since the first year of the program. If everyone pays the spring dues, many people pay the extra $15 and we have enough adults to car pool to Richmond then we should have enough funds for the rest of the year.

Please understand that myself and Richard take full blame for our club’s financial hardship. This is our first year dealing with the financial component of the team and it has been a major learning experience on the fly. We had large aspirations for our increased tournament hosting offsetting costs but with the failure of our HS tournament in the spring we did not meet those aspirations. This is a situation that will not occur again in the future thanks to the learning experience of the unfortunate situation we are in right now. We could have stayed with the first jersey company until they fixed all of their mistakes but that we believe that would have taken too much time. Richard and I are doing and will continue to do the best we can to make the end of our spring season a good one.

My emails are not reaching all of the players and parents. Please everyone do me a favor; text, facebook, email everyone possible and ask them to send me their emails (especially parental emails) and cell numbers. Send the info in a text to my (Greg) number 757-952-7067, just include your name and any info you can find for me.

Also please get in the habit of visiting the blog ( regularly for updates about the team and things like tournaments, dues, etc.

Thank you very much for all you do for Woodside Ultimate!

JV/Girls: the jersey order will be placed next week, by Tuesday, make sure you have given Chappell your sizes and #’s, this is your last chance to pay if you haven’t. JV the order is looking small!

Born 2 Dive & Shore Tour Information

Comfort Inn

Our sponsor and fellow Spanish teacher, Deja Hines, volunteered to drive the van to MD and chaperone our players. Joe Hoffman a Woodside Alumnus will be going with the team to Coach.

As for players, since I have had trouble maintaining enough JV players this season (and getting them to come to practice), I am inviting some girls to come with us. Because of van space, I can only have girls go that have a parent driving. Also I only want serious players to go as we are playing in a mostly male tournament. Please let Chappell know if you and a parent are able to travel with the team. The address of the school is;
Queen Annes County High School
125 Ruthsburg Rd
Centreville, MD 21617

-Games begin at 9:30 so the van will be leaving at 5:30, no later than 5:45.
-Directions will be handed out or use the above address to GPS.
-Pizza will be provided by the tournament for lunch.
-Games will finish around 4:30, Woodside will stop to have dinner and should be back at school around 9pm.

Parents, please pick up your kids promptly so Ms. Hines can return the van on time.

All players going this weekend must have field trip permission slip forms signed.

Varsity must have the PADA Ultimate waiver signed also. JV/Girls: if I do not have a medical waiver signed by parents, I need one so you can play Saturday.

Make sure everyone packs for the weather and brings CLEATS!!! Also bring any spending money that you might need.

Jersey update

We initially went with Rep Ultimate for our Jerseys who was offering an amazing deal of white and dark jersey, shorts, and a trucker hat for $50, and because we wanted to try and support a smaller newer ultimate company. They assured us they would be able to get the varsity gear done by our first tournament. The jerseys were not delivered on time for the first tournament so Rep said they would throw in a free t-shirt as an apology for being late. A few days later Rep let us know that the jerseys had shipped but there was an issue and instead of the dark jersey being purple they were sending maroon ones, some sort of error with their distributor. They said the maroons were free and that they would be printing a set of purples and getting them out ASAP, so we would be ending up with 3 jerseys. When the jerseys arrived the numbers on the backs were printed wrong and a lot of the screenprint quality was low. After some thought and discussion we decided the best course of action was to get a refund and cut ties with Rep.

The next 2 days were spent talking to numerous other ultimate companies and getting them mockups of the jerseys so we could get price quotes. After discussions with 4 other companies we got the best price we could, for the closest comparable product to the original, we ended up with Spin Ultimate. Our order has been placed and is being rushed to ensure its arrival before YHB Invite so Varsity will have a new set of white jersey, purple jersey, and shorts for the tournament.

We asked JV and Girls to have paid and given sizes by Thursday March 17 so that we can complete our list and send payment to Spin for their gear early next week. Without rushing these orders we should be looking at a 3-4 week turnaround.

That completes the jersey saga of the past couple weeks, and gets everyone up to date with what to expect. Moral of the story, if something seems to good to be true it probably is.

YHB Invite Information #4

Coach Richard will be handing out waivers on Monday that have to be completed in order for you to play in the tournament. If you can not make practice on Monday you can get a waiver from Coach Chappell in his room on Tuesday. These are very important and need to be turned in to Coach Chappell by Friday, if you don't have a completed waiver you will not be going to Arlington.

Thursday, March 17, 2011

YHB Invite Information #2

We will be leaving for Arlington at 7am from the parking lot at Woodside, anyone not there and ready to go will be left. Everyone needs to be there no later than 6:45 so we can get loaded up and get on the road.

The school has decided that we are no longer allowed to use 15 passenger vans for transporting the teams, so we will now be using 12 passenger vans. This obviously presents a problem since we have to make up at least 6 seats that we once had. Any parents planning on coming to Arlington with us that would be willing to take extra players with them please email and let us know, ( or we need at least 6 seats and probably more like 10-12 depending on the amount of girls planning on attending.

March 12-13

Woodside teams, due to lack of interest we will not be having a multi-team High School tournament this weekend March 12-13. We will be playing some ultimate though. We will be combining all Varsity, JV, and Ladies together and forming 3 or 4 teams and playing our own round robin tournament on Sunday March 13. There will be a prize for the winning teams and lunch for everyone at the end. We will be playing at Nike Park in Carrollton, VA where the tournament was supposed to be held. We will be starting at 10:30 so everyone should be out no later than 10 in order to warmup, and so we can split up teams. Sorry that we were not able to pull together a complete tournament as we would have liked but this will be a great way for everyone to play some games and get some good experience.

This does not affect the College Womens tournament in any way.

Woodside Invite - College Edition

Congratulations to Penn State Spank for winning Woodside Invite College Edition this weekend. They played a great tournament dominating the competition throughout the weekend to secure the Championship. We look forward to their return next year to defend the title.

We will be playing 3 games, have a bye during the 2:10 timeslot then have 1 more game to end the day. Bring plenty of water, gatorade, snacks, etc.

Parents Meeting Recap

Just a quick recap of what was discussed at the parents meeting.

- Everyone needs to go to and sign up for a youth membership and do the waiver, this can all be done online at 1 time. This is required to participate at VA States, it also provides insurance at sanctioned tournaments and leagues, a quarterly magazine, and helps to support youth ultimate initiatives.
- Everyone needs to pay club dues which will be $25, this helps pay for tournaments and the vans and hotels needed at tournaments.
- Everyone needs to turn in a physical, talk to Coach Chappell for more information about this.
- Jerseys will be $50 for a set, this gets you a white and dark jersey, shorts, and a trucker hat. Varsity needs to pay by Thursday 2-24, JV and Girls need to pay by Thursday 3-3, this short timeframe is to enable us to receive everything prior to our first tournaments.
- The schedule can be found on the blog calendar, and now lists which teams will be attending which events.
- We really need a high level of attendance to support our goals of winning a state championship and having the best JV team in the state, so please stress attendance to your kids, or your friends so that our teams can be successful.
