IMPORTANT MESSAGE: TUC Fall Indoor and Winter Indoor Leagues Update

January 18, 2022, 5:42 PM

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: TUC Fall Indoor Leagues and Winter Indoor Leagues Update

Dear Members,

The Toronto Ultimate Club continues to monitor COVID-19 developments in Toronto and beyond.

On January 5th, the Province of Ontario returned to a modified Step 2 of Ontario's Roadmap to Reopen to "blunt" the surge of OMICRON cases, at least until January 26th. Under the modified Step 2 of the Roadmap to Reopen, all indoor sports and recreational fitness facilities were closed as a public health measure, resulting in TUC cancelling all indoor programming until January 26th.

For the last couple of weeks, TUC has been liaising with venue providers regarding refunds/credits for the 21-day mandated indoor facilities closure and looking at ways to complete the Fall Indoor Season while minimally...

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: OMICRON UPDATE #3 – TUC PROGRAMMING CANCELLED UNTIL 26 JANUARY 2022

January 4, 2022, 6:32 PM

Dear Members,

As we continue to monitor the developments around the OMICRON variant, in Toronto, in Ontario, across Canada and around the World, TUC leadership is committed to providing you, our fellow members, with the latest information.

Last week, TUC leadership reached out to all Fall Indoor participants to advise that TUC would extend the hiatus from 3 January to 10 January and take the pulse on comfort level with returning to Ultimate and receive feedback on playoff structure for the impacted leagues.

Yesterday, the Government of Ontario announced that effective 5 January 2022 at 12:01 am, Ontario will return to a modified Step 2 of Ontario's Roadmap to Reopen to "blunt" the surge of OMICRON cases to protect and safeguard our health care system and essential services. Ontario will remain in this modified Step...

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: COVID-19 UPDATE – ALL TUC PROGRAMMING CANCELLED UNTIL 3 JANUARY 2022

December 20, 2021, 4:00 PM

Dear Fellow Members,

Over the past week, TUC Leadership has been closely monitoring the pandemic, following press conferences, attending Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries meetings, Ontario Trillium Health Partner webinars, reading bulletins, and discussing and creating what-if plans based on the Government of Ontario’s additional restrictions, and the surging case counts and infection rates.

In response to Premier Doug Ford’s announcement on Friday regarding additional restrictions due to the surge in daily COVID-19 cases, namely indoor venue capacity limits, TUC worked with our venue providers to clarify what, if any, impacts there are to TUC programming. Our venues advised that capacity limits per field would be approximately 40 to 45 people (depending on the facility).

TUC also set up our own evaluation system to determine whether we feel comfortable running, and unfortunately, we have now surpassed those...

IMPORTANT MESSAGE: COVID-19 UPDATE – OMICRON VARIANT

December 17, 2021, 6:18 PM

Dear Fellow Members,

TUC Leadership continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic locally, provincially, nationally, and internationally, and most recently, the OMICRON variant of concern.

Wednesday and today, Premier Doug Ford announced restrictions due to the surge in daily COVID-19 cases. TUC has been working with venue providers to understand what, if any, impacts there may be to our capacity limits. With today's announcement of additional restrictions, TUC leadership will continue to liaise with our venue providers. When these measures become available, TUC will review them and advise how (and if) they affect TUC leagues and programs.

Lastly, TUC will continue with Winter Indoor registrations; however, there will be a pause on payments (i.e., upon registration, payment will not be required but will be collected on a later date).

TUC will continue to provide updates as appropriate.

Kind Regards,


Jo...

ANNOUNCEMENT: AGM Postponed

November 3, 2021, 11:16 AM

Dear Fellow TUC Members

The TUC AGM has been postponed.

The annual financial audit has been and continues to be delayed by technical issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Additionally, TUC Leadership continues to review the registrations for our AGM, and according to TUC Bylaw 13.1, "A quorum for a general meeting and for transaction of any business at such meetings shall be at least 0.5% of paid up Members."  Currently, with only six (6) members registered for the AGM, we do not meet the standard for a quorum.

Therefore, due to the lack of quorum and the additional delays in the audit, we are forced to postpone and reschedule to a later date.

We strongly encourage the community to register so that we have a quorum to host our 2021 AGM.  You can register here to attend the virtual AGM.

TUC leadership will announce and provide the membership...

COVID-19 UPDATE:  Return to Play Framework and Vaccination Policy

Hello Fellow TUC Members!

On 1 September 2021, the Ontario Government announced that there would be proof of Vaccination to access specific settings and facilities.  TUC leadership has reviewed the provincial requirement and liaised with our venue and service providers about the impact of Ontario's proof of vaccination regulation on TUC.  After much discussion and review, we will be instituting a Vaccination Policy for the Fall and Winter Indoor season to be compliant with Provincial and local regulations.  The Policy will be a part of our COVID-19 Safe Return to Play document.

The Policy will require all TUC participants (players, coaches, staff, volunteers, etc.) who are born in, or before 2009 to be fully vaccinated with an approved Health Canada two-dose or one-dose vaccine series, unless the individual has a valid medical reason or has an approved exemption under...

Canada Day 2021

July 1, 2021, 1:12 PM

This year as we recognize Canada Day, it is with heavy hearts as we mourn the loss of so many indigenous children's lives, and the pain and suffering that the residential school system and systemic anti-indigenous racism has caused our communities, friends and neighbours.

We encourage our club members and allies to take the time to reflect, to listen and to learn. Learn about the rich history of our nation and the diversity of our people and cultures, learn about the residential school system and refer to the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation to understand how we can work together as a nation to foster reconciliation and healing.
