Initial schedules will be released for the first 2 weeks. Later schedules will given with at least 1 weeks notice. This also means that you may be likely to play the same team more than once during the season.

COVID RESTRICTIONS AND VACCINATIONS:
Waivers: Waivers may be required with the ever changing COVID severity. If they are required, they will need to be filled out through Ultimate Central at least 24 hours in advance of gameplay. This would be a requirement to ensure everyone has signed all required waivers for Santa Monica and LAOUT, and so that we have accurate contact tracing in place should someone report they have contracted COVID-19.
COVID Vaccination: COVID Vaccines ARE REQUIRED for Fall Beach League 2021 and for all future leagues. All players will be required to upload a photo of their vaccination card into Ultimate Central during registration as proof of vaccination. Our number one priority for LAOUT members is safety so we hope that this revised policy creates a safe environment for all players to have some fun as we get back into our regular league schedule.
See you all on the sand!
