This is a “hat” tournament. Teams will be picked from several hats. Players will rank themselves based on experience and athleticism. Each hat will have players with similar experience/athleticism. Each team will have several players from each hat or level. This is to encourage evenly matched teams and that everyone from seasoned veterans to newcomers will have a good time.

The tournament will have some excellent sponsors including DFS Saipan, PIC, The Shack, Fiesta Resort and Spa, Hyatt Saipan, Godfather’s, MVA, Triple J, and IT&E. There will be prizes for the winning and most spirited teams as well as individual awards for MVP (most valuable player), MSP (most spirited player), and possibly others.

This cost of the tournament is $40 which includes a custom designed Saipan Ultimate dryfit jersey, breakfast snacks, lunch both days, a party for participants, and 2 awesome days of Ultimate Frisbee.
