There is no game this Monday, April 15. The fields are still too wet and the city has asked us not to use the fields yet.
The city has notified us that the Kelso Beach field is too wet to play on. Our April 1 and April 8 games have been cancelled. Check back before April 15 to see if we are playing then or get email updates to know when our next game is.
The summer season is (hopefully) right around the corner. In fact, weather permitting, we are exactly 1 month away!
See you soon! 🙂
Here’s the breakdown for this year’s (April 1 ~ October 31) field and insurance costs.
Field Rental – $423.42
We have the field booked for 30 days, every Monday (from April 1 through October 31) for 2 hours. Each day’s rental is $13.933 (yes, that’s 3 spots after the decimal) so the total rental fee is $417.99. Tax is $5.43 bringing the total for field rental to $423.42.
Insurance – $477.00
We source our insurance through Ontario Ultimate. Insurance fees are based on the number of players we had sign up the previous year. Not all of the players covered under the insurance paid. The numbers below reflect everyone who signed a waiver regardless if they paid or not. Players who played only once or twice did not pay the $40. The breakdown is the following:
Canada & Ontario Ultimate Memberships
- 48 – Ultimate Canada Membership ($3/player) $144.00
- 39 – Ontario Ultimate Membership ($2/Adult Player) $78.00
- 9 – Ontario Ultimate Membership ($1/Juniors Player) $9.00
- 48 – Players Insurance ($2.00/player) $96.00
- Board Indemnity Insurance $150.00
Minor Sports Registration (2 Evenings) – $100
We tried to recruit new players at the Owen Sound Minor Sports Registration.
Grand Total – $1,000.42
Our main expenses for the 2019 year add up to just over $1,000. The fee to play this summer season is $40, same as last year. To recoup our expenses we need at least 25 players to commit $40 to the season. That should be doable as we had just over that number in 2018.
None of these figures factor into indoor ultimate over the winter.
No ultimate frisbee during the holidays. See everyone January 11, 2019.
The 2018/2019 ultimate frisbee winter schedule is now available. You can view the schedule on the schedule page.
Ian Fox wrote up an article about Owen Sound team’s experience in the Stall Fall tournament in Guelph last weekend. Read more at Local ultimate frisbee players compete in tournament.
The Kelso Beach soccer field is really nice and right on the water so it will be refreshing to play on when the weather gets hot!
The soccer fields are located at the north end of Kelso Beach Park.
