This June, Alan Cheung is our Volunteer of the Month. Alan's commitment and dedication to coaching the juniors programs within TUC is exemplary. Each week, Alan is part of the team that runs TJSL north - our largest junior's league with over 90 participants registered! Alan is always around to help juniors, teaching and answering questions whenever the need arises. Alan was also one of our coaches for the Junior's Open House on June 25th, where he helped teach the basics of ultimate to 8-14 year olds. He shares his passion for ultimate with all of those around him, and is helping shape the future generation of ultimate players! Thanks Alan!

Congratulations to @Play, Fish Eyes, BaNaNa Cream PIE, and Panic! with the disc-yo, who have one the first round of spirit prizes for Summer 2011. They have each received a case of Steam Whistle beer for their efforts.
TUC continues to regard Spirit as a fundamental guiding concept of Ultimate and a very important part of our leagues. In 2011, TUC will continue to award top spirited teams with prizing courtesy of our friends at Steam Whistle Brewery.
After the first 5 weeks of the summer season, all of the top SOTG teams are eligible, and one winner from each league night was drawn. Each winning team received a case of Steam Whistle beer for their exemplary spirit. The winning teams for the first round of summer 2011 are:
Monday League: @Play Tuesday League: Fish Eyes Wednesday League: BaNaNa Cream PIE Thursday League: Panic! with the disc-yo
You can always find an updated list of Steam Whistle Spirit winners on our Spirit Winners Page on the TUC website. The next round of spirit prizes will be awarded to the top spirited teams using spirit scores from weeks 6 - 10. Stay positive, be respectful, and uphold the ideals of spirit of the game, and you just might get awarded for it!
With Summer League Playoffs just a few months away, please find attached the TUC Summer Playoff Sub Policy, which we will be instituting again this September for the TUC Summer Playoffs.
This policy was carefully crafted by the Operations Committee of the TUC Board of Directors and its intention is to balance the need for substitute players with team rosters that are representative of league play. We are hopeful that this policy will encourage participation as well as quell some of the issues we have had with respect to roster disputes. As we employ the policy this September, we will be looking for ways to improve it for the future.
We ask that you be proactive in reviewing & understanding the implications of this Policy for your team - and feel free to review & distribute to your team members.

Another summer of TUC Ultimate is under way, and that means another summer of playing with Spirit! Last month featured our third annual Spirit Hat Tournament which was arguably the best one yet, featuring a great turn out, fun and spirited games and some beautiful weather. The Spirit scores for the first season are all wrapped up and I look forward to being able to personally contact our best performers to thank them for their efforts.
We’re not resting our on our laurels however; TUC is continuing to look for ways to develop Spirit of the Game at all levels in all of our leagues, and to do that we need your help. The Spirit Committee is looking for volunteers who can contribute an hour two each month to help plan, coordinate and deliver on our initiatives for SOTG. If you’re interested (or feel like voluntelling someone) please contact email@example.com for more information.
