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
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
- 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"
- 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):
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
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:
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
. Games will start promptly at 8PM
and end at 10PM
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:

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:
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 9290We 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.
