I have already been kicking around ideas about a true coed league(4:3/3:4).

new interesting option: 4:3 3:4 coed league where teams choose themselves with a roster cap of 10. have it during ADA instead of the women's division...


There are not enough women who regularly attend league to host a nice women's division (4 teams, solid numbers, etc). So I want to know how the women feel about a proposed coed league geared toward polishing their game. I won't be running both. The women's population is too small and I don't want to spread it over 2 nights.

This league would be competitive, but I think that current women players in Fayetteville want an outlet to increase their game. Perhaps, this league would help fill that.

For now I envision this as a collaboration between current men and current women players not necessarily brand new players(i.e. never played at all). That doesn't mean "green" players would be discouraged from signing up but strict newbies should probably go with FDA.

This league would probably run on a separate night as ADA men's league so that more men would have the option to play. However, I would have to limit the number of men on each team (Not sure on the logistics but doesn't matter for now).

Comments on the above are welcomed and encouraged but please keep the thread-drift to a minimum.

not voting, just commenting. I think that a MDA (mixedDA) league would be great and I would love to play in it. As long as it is on a different night and ADA's awesomeness doesn't change.

I also like April's idea of mini-hat tourneys each week - if we can't get enough women, or there is not enough interest in a coed league.

I feel like women won't feel enough commitment to come out every week if it's a hat tourny With a team you already have an obligation. But whatever, I love playing everything Ultimate that's put together in fayetteville.

If you REALLY stick to 4/3, I think it would be awesome. I would make sure to penalize teams with inconsistent numbers so that the ladies get on the field. The game transforms a bit with ladies in the handle and in the back. Do it!

in order to make it so it's actually competitive, i think it's a great idea to try mixed. getting enough non-strictly newbie women who will consistently be out there would be difficult.

last year we had about 35 women for WDA, of those 14 played on a club team for the fall and i'd say there were about 3 more that should/could have. we lose a couple of those ladies this year (hien will you be in town?), but we also gain a few (new soco ladies - bwill, etc). i would say we have a solid 15 -20 ladies that are competitive, which is would be enough for a 4 team mixed league.

otherwise, we can do another all women's league, but it will not be competitive, and i'd say that could be good to help grow the number of women players in the area and learn/improve, but last year's WDA did not bring in any newbies or convert part timers to full timers.

i say it's safe to say that from the women's side, we'd like to convert the WDA to a MDA, BUT would we have enough mens to play that league with us? would the ADAers also be MDAers?
