Republic of Korea Ultimate (ROK-U) has expanded beyond the borders of Daegu to cities all around South Korea! This great social league has gained popularity over its first 4 seasons, to the point where 12 teams, from 4 cities across the nation now will partake in the Fall 2011 season. Players come from far and wide across Korea, to play on teams in Gyeongju, Daejeon, Daegu and Busan!
Fall 2011 League play kicks off in early September and runs to the first week or two of November. Due to all the logistics of organizing a nationwide league, registration is NOW OPEN and ongoing until all the rosters are full! Limited spots are available so sign up today! It should be noted that this league is not simply for the elite Ultimate player. This league caters to all skill levels, all ages, and of course, all nationalities. ROK-U has seen a continuing growing percentage of Korean players playing and wishes for it to continue to grow. Not only is this a great league to meet new friends, to form relationships, to get in shape, or to just come out to drink a beer ? it’s also a great way to practice your English and/or Korean language skills in a truly international environment. Call it a ‘sporty language exchange.’
