Shenzhen Summer League 2014



Welcome to the Shenzhen Summer League 2014, the second Summer League hosted by the ShenZhen Ultimate Players Association. This year we are aiming to go a bit bigger. Teams will get jerseys, our league will run 6 weeks and each week a team will have 2 games. We invite you to come Sunday July 20th at 5PM for a complimentary friendly afternoon of pickup followed by a nice dinner at a nearby Dongbei restaurant where we will hold our draft.

The theme of our league is: The Odyssey. The Spartans meet to decide who is the strongest of their line of warriors. They battle in the hottest sun and torrential rain while they push themselves to their limits and beyond. Each team has chosen a creature of Greek Legend to represent them. The lines have been drawn. Only one creature can survive.

The Hydra - Black - "Give them NOTHING! But take from them EVERYTHING!"
The Medusa - Green - "Let each among them search their own soul."
The Pegasus - Blue - "Prepare for glory!"
The Minotaur - Yellow - "This is where we hold them. This is where we fight!"
The Cyclops - Pink - "What we do in life, echoes in eternity"
The Centaur
- Orange - "Never retreat, never surrender!"



Remember what King Leonidas once said about Spirit of the Game: In the end, a Spartan's true strength is the warrior next to him. So give respect and honor to him, and it will be returned to you. First, you fight with your head. Then you fight with your heart. Do not forget today's lesson. Respect and honor...

Respect and honor.

UPDATE - Location(Tartarus):
We wanted to return to the same field as last year at OCT Middle School, unfortunately in order to accommodate a group of people that we really wanted to include this year, we decided it was best to switch fields to Weixin(Tartarus). There were some legitimate issues with the field that we had no way of knowing till we used it on July 20th. The whole OCT Middle School field was redone and fully covered in grass but the addition of a sprinkler system caused two depressions in the ground surrounding the sprinklers to form. This exposed the sprinklers more and essentially made two big holes. Also, the grass was uncut making the ground feel uneven. Both issues were addressed immediately with the field managers who agreed to fix them, but people complained too much and we decided to give them what they wanted. It's not the best outcome as it has cause a few people from our club to miss out either some days of the League or even to miss it completely, but it was for the greater good of bringing the clubs of Shenzhen more together. Let's focus on having a great league going forward.

Walking Directions and Map:
Take the Shekou Line going towards Chiwan. Get off at Ke Yuan metro station. Use exit D. Continue out of the metro and walk down the street. Cross the first intersection in the same direction you've been walking. At the second intersection cross to the right. You'll see a small path to walk onto the field next to the metal shed. You've arrived at Field 1 of Weixin.



Day and Time:
Last year many complained about the time of day we had our league. This year to make everyone more comfortable, our league will be on Saturdays from 7:30PM. Games will start promptly at 8PM and end at 10PM.

Payment:
Early Bird Cost will be 160RMB per person. Payment is due by this Friday at Midnight. You can bring it to any activity hosted by the SZUPA this week. If you can't make it to pickup you can do a bank transfer or use Paypal. Please contact Jeff on Wechat ID - SZUltimate to work that out. After Friday, players will be charged 200RMB.

This is regardless of coming to 1 game or all of your games. We hope you'll sign up now to be on a team rather than add you in later as we want teams to be fair.

Pickup Players:
Pickup players will be considered at the beginning of each week's game and decided who gets who by the captains but they will not be allowed in Semis or Finals. All players that want to be considered as pickup players must arrive before games start at 7:30 and meet with the captains to see if there is a place to put them. Anyone showing up after the games have started will need to wait until game 2 to be considered. Cost per pickup player is 30RMB per night.



Pay by Alipay:

Alipay account: 13714411960

myshufu@live.com AND huashenwh@sina.com.



What do you get:
Pickup this Sunday will be free and open to everyone. This is an additional cost that the SZUPA is paying for so that you can meet the people you will be playing with and try out the new field.
6 weeks of League Games(August 31st we will break before finals for the HK Beach Hat). The Summer League Finals field is sponsored by the SZUPA.
Water/Ice/Bananas will be at all League games. Please bring your own water and/or drinks to Pickup this Sunday.
Team Jersey(We are doing Jerseys. They will be given out Saturday, Augutst the 2nd at 7:30PM. Be very sure about your choice of size. Included is a sample size chart.



What to bring:
Sunblock
Water Bottle
Mosquito Repellant
Be sure to bring your teams colored shirt. We are providing jerseys but you may have a teammate that forgets or in case of production delays/sizing issues.

Tournament Cost Estimate:

Since some people have been wondering why the cost is higher. Here is a breakdown of everything planned to be purchased for the tournament.

4000 for 5 weeks of fields
480 for 6 weeks of water(4 per week)
3900 for jerseys(sleeves)
210 15 Winner Medals
56 4 Spirit Awards
56 4 Best New Player
28 2 Tournament MVP boy and girl
560 60 bananas
Total 9290

We will pay for:
1 week of pickup 800RMB
1 week of league 800RMB
Ice I believe is 10 per bag. We will need 2 per week. So 120.

How did we get the cost down to 160:
We cut out an 8th week of pickup(800RMB). Originally had all contributing to paying for tomorrow's pickup and the final day there.
Now we are paying for tomorrow as good will to all. Even those not participating in the league and we are just cutting out the 8th week. So that saved 1600RMB.

We are also cutting out watermelon because it was super expensive. By my calculations we saved 1500rmb from losing the watermelon(50*5 per week for 6 weeks).

I have some prizes left over from some sponsors like Ultipro discs and water bottles, and toys, that we will use for awards which are at no cost to the club or players. There is also one possible surprise award.

60ppl 155 per person, rounded up to 160 to cover the transportation of everything by a van I know which will only be needed twice. Less than 60 people, the club bears the burden or we will need to use Weixin a couple times which only costs 450RMB per use.

Hope that clears things up. Going forward David Zhou will be the club Treasurer as I feel this will let people feel more at ease with any extra money collected. He will be collecting fees at pickup and at training and keeping a transparent file for all to see.

比赛时间: 选手们对去边白天的酷热表示很有压力,今天我们特意做了调整。比赛时间将会定为周日下午4点半到7点。 比赛5点开始。 有的选手向我们咨询是否可以在周四,周五和周六比赛,但周四和周五晚上场地没有灯,周六的话大部分人有工作或者其他安排,所以我们定在了周日。

付款信息: 如果你在这周日之前付款,费用是160元。周日之后是200元。如果你没有办法在周日前转账或者汇款,请微信JEFF帮你想办法解决。

不管最后你只参加了一场或者全部比赛,费用都是一样不变。我们希望你可以提早注册一个队,而不是后期加入,这样的话对别的队伍也不公平。Pick up选手可以参加常规赛但不可以参加半决赛和决赛。

比赛信息: 这周日的Pickup对所有人免费,你可以见到你的队友并享受全新的场地。 6周的比赛时间(8月31日是香港沙滩赛,所以错开) 水、冰块、香蕉会在场地足量提供 每个人一件队服

人均费用怎么降到160
元的(每人每周26-33元,如果按200元的话,是每周33元)?

按60人来计算,每人160元的话,我们将利用其中的300元(人均5元)来租车及运输饮用水,香蕉等费用。如果最终人数达不到60人的话,我们会考虑使用1-2次威新的场地,威新场地费用是每2个半小时450元。
