Hello DMS Community,
The Firebirds Ultimate Frisbee Team appears to be headed for the State Playoffs with a likely placement of being FIRST in the league. They are set to bring home the BIG trophy from all of their effort!
The Team currently has 6 wins, no losses and no ties. They are leading the league after three years with the Arizona Canyon Athletic Association (azcaa.com). This is truly awesome for the team considering that 3 years ago, as a new team, they lost every game. Last year they held third place qualifying for state playoffs, in which they also placed third.
Their next game is Saturday October 1st, at New Way Academy 5048 E. Oak Phoenix. See the game schedule here.
Students from 7th to 12th grade can participate in the league. At present we have 25 students mostly from 7th through 10th grade. I have posted announcements and drone footage taken by one of the parents from the team on the Facebook DMS Community Chat. (We’re the team in white. Students’ identities are not visible on the footage.) Practices have been Tuesdays and Fridays after school 3:30p.m. to 5:00p.m. with games on Wednesdays and Saturdays. There are still a couple of game days left in the season with the State Playoffs likely to be held on, or around October 22nd.
I welcome and invite all of you to come to the game this Saturday. It is very exciting watching our kids participate and work together on the team.
Please contact me if you have any questions. ( As a point of reference, please make sure your child’s registration forms have been given to the front office staff, your fees are paid and your enthusiasm is high. You can support the Team and other after school sports through monetary donations, tax credits, and Firebirds apparel purchases- t-shirts, hoodies, hats, etc.)
We’re looking forward to seeing you Saturday at the game supporting your DMS Firebirds!
