The 15th year of Madison Ultimate Frisbee Association Inc. (MUFA) existence was truly the most productive. Most importantly our leagues set record number of players with Summer League having 88 teams, 1764 players, a 29% growth from 2006. Better quality jerseys were added to increase the worth of the great deal summer league players get for their fee of joining. We provide more goods and services than any other league in the nation for the price. Spring and Fall leagues grew 37% and 26%. Goaltimate is the newest league added to MUFA.
Our concern of serving players was enhanced with a winter public meeting to give current reports and listen to concerns, ideas and take proposals in person. Though we are always willing and able to take input, this was the first large group get together for conversation. MUFA is working at publicizing itself better with a revamped web site hopefully to make communication easier in all directions. A MUFA store is in the works.
Because of last years public meeting MUFA has consulted with a law firm in the belief of stabilizing the incorporation into a long lasting upstanding fixture in the
Donations this year were the most since giving Hiestand Disc Golf Course to the Madison Parks Division in 1994.
MUFA Board members have taken it upon themselves to understand what is happening outside
MUFA sponsored 7 people through the UPA Level I and 5 people through the UPA Level II Coaches Clinics to help spread legal and intelligent ultimate hopefully in our school system. May ultimate grow from there.
As President I would like to thank all the board members for there forward thoughtful awareness. All league directors and volunteers have worked countless hours just so hundreds of people can have a blast throwing, chasing plastic and people. You are heroes. And the players make MUFA a living breathing community worth caring about.
Spirit Of The Game!
