WASHINGTON, D.C.-- American Ultimate Academy (AUA) is proud to announce their upcoming youth Ultimate tournament, the Capital City Classic. This is an unprecedented event that aims to unify all four major Ultimate regions of the DMV.
What is the Capital City Classic?
AUA, in collaboration with Wilson Ultimate head coach Dave Ohls, YULA, and Fairfax Ultimate, has brought together 100 of the best high school ultimate players from Fairfax, Arlington, D.C., and Maryland. Combined, these athletes represent over 20 different schools. Teams were created regionally to give players who consistently compete against each other a chance to team up, strengthening community connections.
Capital City Classic kicks off on Sunday, November 11th, at Trinidad Recreation Center in northeast Washington, D.C. The open division features a four-team round robin. Fairfax Fusion, Washington Disc City, Arlington ACES, and Maryland Crabcakes will play each team once. The top two teams will advance onward. The tournament kicks off at 5:30 pm, and wraps up at 10:00 pm.
Capital City Classic continues on Monday, November 12th at Woodrow Wilson High School where 30 talented girls will take the field under the direction of elite women club players, including Washington DC Scandal’s captain, Kristen Franke. Players will arrive at 6:45, with first pull at 7:30 and pizza for the players immediately following the game.
The tournament will conclude on Saturday, November 17th in Arlington. The competitive travel girls team ACES will compete against a local women’s college Ultimate team from 7:00-8:30 pm. Immediately following, the top two open teams from the round robin will play for the open championship.
