All Coaches, Teachers, Volunteers...

Just wanted to drop everyone a line and let you know that you will hear from me by mid week this week. Life has been a little busy with the UNC women's team (I coach them) as they just had regionals and now we are preparing to make the trip to Boulder for Nationals.

Thanks for you patience!

Coach's Meeting

A formal coach's meeting will be occurring at the Spring Carnival. Itinerary and exact time/location to be announced at a later date. If you are interested in being a coach, please do not hesitate to email: Your commitment level can be minimal or substantial. The team you would be coaching would be geographically close to you and if your commitment level is minimal we would look to pair you with another coach that can give more.

Games would be 1x/week with skipping holiday weeks. How much you practice is up to you and your team.


The Triangle Youth Ultimate League is officially teaming up with Triangle Flying Disc Association. The benefits of the two teaming up are endless, but here are a few very important ones:

Positives for TYUL:
1. Tech support - not the TYUL Director's forte - registration, website
2. TFDA community support - liasons to school districts, coaches, supporters
3. Eventual usage of Ultiplex
4. Exposure at events like the Carnival

Positives for TFDA
1. Increased exposure in triangle community
2. Increased support of Ultiplex

Registration: Update #2

Registration will go live May 4, 2008. Stay tuned for a link.
