General League Info

Rules regarding game play, substitutions, and more can be found on the TUC outdoor speedpoint rules page **. Team captains must assist in enforcing the rules. Please abide by the Spirit of the Game when dealing with this (and any other game) issue.

Spring leagues are timed and therefore play to time, not a point total **. Each team is allowed 2 timeouts per game in TUC Spring League and there is no overtime or universe point timeouts (as opposed to UPA rules which allow a timeout for overtime) **.

All TUC Spring Outdoor leagues are 4:3 (male:female) mixed gender.  All players must be registered and paid TUC members.

** The Sunday Afternoon League @ Central Tech plays with the same rules and game length as the TUC Summer Leagues

Registration

Please make sure to read the details to ensure you have the most current information.

You may register a full team or as an individual for Spring leagues. Individuals who wish to sign up will be used to form a HAT Team on the day/location chosen. For Spring 2017, registration will commence soon and run until all leagues are full. Registration AND payment confirm your spot. If you register, but don't pay, this does NOT hold your spot! Complete Spring team registration includes payment in full upon registration submission. For any registration questions, please feel free to reach out to memberservices@tuc.org.

All players must be valid TUC members. If you possess a 2016/2017 membership that was valid for April 2016 - March 2017 then you must acquire a new membership in order to play in ANY Spring Leagues (league fees still apply). If you are joining the Club in the Spring we offer an Introductory membership for brand new TUC members, which runs through to March 31, 2018. Any non-TUC player may participate in a maximum of two games in the Spring league, after which they must become a TUC member in order to continue playing. All players must sign the waiver of liability form before stepping on the field, member or not. In order to enforce these stipulations, we rely heavily on the honour system and on our team captains. Please abide by the Spirit of the Game when dealing with this (and any other game) issue.

For more information on becoming a TUC member, visit our Becoming a Member page. For assistance with registering a team or as an individual, see our How to Register page.

League Contacts

The head convenor for the 2017 Spring League will be Alex Bittermann, Manager of Member Services for TUC: memberservices@tuc.org.

General questions about leagues should be addressed to the convenor. However, in order to reduce the flood of emails to the convenor, if you are a player and have a question about the TUC or the league, please ask your team captain first or contact the appropriate person as listed on the TUC contacts page. Your team captain is your first point of contact with the TUC when it comes to administrative matters.

Spirit, Safety & Fields

Spirit of the Game is an integral part of Ultimate. In order to encourage teams to play with Spirit, we are requiring all teams to submit a Spirit score as well as a game score after each game. It is the responsibility of both team captains to submit a spirit score for the other team after every game.

In the interest of safety, the TUC strongly discourages games from taking place on grass fields during poor weather or on soggy fields. If the weather becomes severe during your game (i.e. thunderstorms), the game shall be ended at that point and the score becomes final. Metal cleats are not allowed under any circumstances. Plastic/rubber cleats are allowed at Monarch Park Stadium, Lamport Stadium, UCC, and Varsity Centre, but NOT at the Downsview Hangar. Running shoes or turf shoes at the Hangar only, absolutely no cleats there! Foot blocks are not allowed except with the explicit prior agreement of both team captains. Any foot block, attempted or successful, should be treated as a foul.

Since field space is difficult to find, the TUC is always concerned about the possibility of losing currently permitted fields. Permits can be revoked if teams engage in prohibited activities or as the result of complaints from neighbourhood groups. Therefore, we remind everyone of the following policies:

  • The consumption of alcohol and recreational drugs is NOT allowed at the fields, whether before, during or after a game. If you wish to engage in such activities, please do so in the privacy of your own home.
  • New Smoking Ban Bylaw: It is illegal to smoke tobacco within 9 meters of sports fields. 
  • Use Spirit when dealing with other users of the parks. This means being polite to the people who inadvertently stray onto the field during your game. Also, bring the permit with you to your game to head off conflict with other users of the field.
  • Use common sense and be considerate of the neighbours. This means that you do not pee in the bushes, against the side of a house or in the middle of the field. Also, do not block driveways with your car.
  • If problems arise with fields, such as poor condition or conflict with other groups (e.g. soccer), please bring them to the attention of the league convenor and the fields coordinator. Do not take it upon yourself to solve the problem.
