2022 Spring Season

Here is information on Spring 2022 Ultimate for players in grades 5 through 8.

We run a hybrid program in the spring:

For 5th and 6th graders: Spring Ultimate consists of a 2 day/week Intramural League, most likely on Mondays and Thursdays. Players are divided into permanent teams after the first week. Sessions include skill and strategy training, and starting the third week the teams play a schedule of intramural games – each team plays a game against another intramural team at every session. Registration is through Amherst Recreation, same as in the fall.

For 7th and 8th graders: Ultimate is an official spring sport at Amherst Regional Middle School. Players who attend ARMS (or are home schooled in the district) must register through the high school Athletic Department. All players will participate alongside the 5th and 6th graders in the Intramural League.

ARMS players also have the option to try out for the Travel Team. Tryouts take place in the first week of the season. In a typical year around 30 to 35 players try out and around 18 make the team. The Travel Team is a big commitment – in addition to playing in the Intramural League on Mondays and Thursdays, Travel Team players have practices or games on Tuesdays and Wednesdays as well as all-day tournaments on many Saturdays and Sundays.

The season will most likely begin on Monday March 28. We may shift the time to go from 4:00 until 6:00 instead of from 3:30 to 5:30.

Registrations for both ARMS and Amherst Recreation typically open at the beginning of February.

Coaches for the spring season will be Jim Pistrang and Chris Cianfrani.
