More than ever we are looking forward to the future, and being on the field with all of you again!
Due to COVID-19, the future is quite unclear for all of us when we can play Ultimate again and what other measures need to be taken.
We are still carrying on with the preparations for LAFF to take place on 31/07 – 02/08.
To give teams some more time to follow the evolution of COVID-19, the deadline for registrations is extended to June 15th.
On this deadline we will also communicate on any next steps to come.
Should the government restrictions disable us to organise LAFF in a manner that we see appropriate, LAFF 2020 will be cancelled.
In case of cancellation, all player and team fees will be refunded in full.
In the meantime, let’s stay positive, follow the guidelines to prevent COVID-19 from spreading and save the summer together!
WHAT IS LAFF?
Love At First Flight is a tournament that was created in 2008 to give starting players and teams the opportunity to play competitive Ultimate at their own level.
To create such a fair tournament, the following players can attend LAFF
▴ Male players: maximum three years of experience
▴ Female players: no experience restriction
▴ Youth players (under 18): no experience restriction
Of course, these restrictions can also be mixed: for example, your team may consist of two U18 players who already play five years, three 26 year old players
who have one year of Ultimate experience and a 30 year old girl who’s been playing for over 12 years.
If you are lucky enough to be too experienced, you’re welcome to join our tournament as a guest, a coach or even as a player in the ‘Still In Love division’ (see below)!
With LAFF, we want to create an experience that’s more than just an Ultimate tournament.
We want to charm you, to surprise you, to give you the feeling you never want LAFF to end!
WHEN IS LAFF?
LAFF always takes place during the first weekend of August, so make sure to highlight that weekend in your agenda!
For 2020, it will be from 31/07 – 02/08.
LAFF has an open, mixed and SIL division! Each division plays 5 vs 5 on lush fields of grass of 75 by 25 meters.
Both the open and mixed division will have 16 teams, the SIL division will have 8 teams, welcoming a whopping total of 40 teams!
The Still In Love division is a loose mixed (!) division for teams that played LAFF before but exceed the experience restriction.
Do you want to relive that unique LAFF feeling? Make sure to sign up for this special division then!
Like previous year we have an exclusive partnership with one of Europe’s biggest Ultimate tournaments: Tom’s Tourney!
The winner of the open division gets a wildcard for the second division of Tom’s Tourney 2021! Indeed you read it well, a guaranteed place on Tom’s Tourney,
the tournament which had over an amazing 100 registrations for one of the 64 desired slots!
For the official LAFF merchandise we will partner up with 9UP Ultimate again!
Just like LAFF, 9UP Ultimate respects the environment by avoiding unnecessary plastic packaging and using a 100% recycled polyester as the main fabric for their clothes.
Make sure to check out the merchandise stand and get that LAFF triangle showed across the globe!
