REMAINING SEASON 2 GAMES

At the start of the year, Ultimate Victoria mapped out the dates for all APL seasons for 2021, with a number of “buffer” weeks kept open in case of the need to reschedule games. Unfortunately the latest lockdown ate up the last of those weeks for the entire year. Therefore Ultimate Victoria has made the decision to shorten both Season 2 and Season 3 by one week each to “buy back” some extra buffer weeks later in the year.

The Season 2 schedule has been now been updated on Ultimate Central to reflect this change.

Monday August 2nd, 9th and 16th – round robin games for all divisions

Monday August 23rd – round robin for Division 1, semi finals for Divisions 2 and 3

Monday August 30th – final playoffs for all divisions

DIVISION PLACEMENT FOR SEASON 3

Promotion and relegation from Season 2 will be determined by the number of total teams entering Season 3, and playoff placements from Season 2.

New teams entering APL will be automatically placed in Division 3. Teams new to ultimate can opt-in to a free demo game on Monday August 30th with support from coaches.

SEASON 3 KEY DATES

Season 3 will commence on Monday September 6th, and is scheduled to finish on Monday December 13th, for 14 weeks of games.

No games are currently scheduled Monday November 1st and Monday December 20th, however this may change if COVID-19 restrictions cause delays to the season. The team registration fee for the season is $1,540 per team (inc GST, equating to $110 per week)
