Every course in Texas is invited to send a team. Teams may also represent schools, ultimate teams, or other organizations. Some courses send more than one team.
This year we are also inviting teams from other states, but the teams must be from the same geographical area in that state so that they represent a course, club, city, school, or other organization. Multiple teams from a state are acceptable.
Texas Teams has been a Texas Disc Golf tradition since 2000. Teams represent individual courses or other organizations from a particular area and are composed of players of varying skill levels. Players compete for their team in head-to-head match play in nine-hole rounds. Points, rather than strokes, are totaled from all of the team's rounds to determine the winning team.
This year's three-day tournament is much more than just competitive disc golf. It's an experience, a reunion, and a chance to see which community produces the most cohesive and talented team. We will be hosting a national teams event at the same time with teams around the country. Teams from all states are invited for the first time this year!
There are two divisions: Established and Merged. Every course or city is invited to send an Established team. Established teams have 9 players: 2 Pro, 2 Advanced, 2 Intermediate, 1 Master, 1 Amateur Woman, and one "swing" player (Pro Woman, Grand Master, or Advanced Master). Courses may send more than one Established team if space allows. Merged Teams consist of 6 players: 3 Advanced and 3 Intermediate and generally represent communities without pros. At Texas Teams 2011, we had 468 players.
$75 per player covers greens fees for Selah Ranch and the 2 new courses at the second venue on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Every player gets a full-color Disc, a Tournament sweatshirt. Or if you prefer a Hoodie, they are $7 extra for a total of $82 (all larger sizes in sweats or hoodies $5 for 2XL & $8 for 3XL), a mini disc & Friday night get-together with a BIG Bon Fire on the ranch with an old fashioned Saloon. Live Music. Drinks and Dinner. Each player will be getting a free drawing ticket upon check-in. Multiple drawings will be held and lots of prizes given away.
There will be trophies for the top teams, plus the TEAM LEAP Best Dressed Team Award and TEAM LEAP Most Spirited Team Award. We will be giving away additional prizes and items, and we will have a drawing for a historic Circle R basket and tee signs. We will be offering full a full color ustom designed discs with team photos for each winning team. Please you get your team picture taken Friday night at the party of your teams or Saturday at Selah Ranch by the clubhouse between 9am to 12pm.
Friday Night Get-Together:
We will host a get-together Friday night as well and will share more details as it evolves. If anyone is interested in working with us on the Friday night get-together they should email Dee. We hope you will attend the Friday night party as this year we will be giving away more variety of shirts than before and it should be a lot of FUN for ALL.
Players will be offered camping at 2 locations: Selah Ranch, a quiet family friendly camp and the Ranch Camp which will be available for those who want to socialize till late hours. Camping will cost $10 per person per night. Children under 12 are free. Wristbands will be required for all players and a different one for campers. Camping will be paid and due on registration so that we can plan on a large enough area and enough bathrooms. Selah Ranch offers many permanent bathrooms with lots of showers. We will offer premium accommodations at Selah Ranch in the main lodge or their cabins, discounted rates at other hotels and cabins locally will also be available. Main camping is at the Trey Texas Ranch. Here are other options for lodging for those who would prefer hotels, cabins or other camping locations.
We will have food vendors on site for you to purchase food on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We will not be catering any meals this year due to decreasing demand. There are multiple fast-food restaurants in the area, and since most players pack their own lunch or eat at their campground, we believe offering food vendors may be the best solution. We will have water, Gatorade, soft drinks, red bull, etc. and limited snacks for sale. Dynamic Discs Van will be at both locations. For those staying at the main lodge at Selah Ranch, you can order meals through Selah Ranch.
We welcome sponsors for event, and we will add your logo to this website, allow you to put up a banner, and make multiple announcements throughout the event. Please email us at Contact@circularproductions.com for sponsorship information.
