General League Info

The TUC Summer Leagues start dates are currently TBD during to the circumstances surrounding COVID-19. The season length will be determined once we are instructed that it is safe to resume play. Every day of the week is treated as a separate league and on each weeknight there are separate Divisions for our Intermediate/Recreational Leagues. We will do our best to locate games in the areas described, with Yonge Street acting as the general dividing line between East and West. All Competitive Division games will be played in set locations throughout the City.

Rules regarding game play, substitutions and more can be found on the rules page (rules regarding playoff participation). 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. For the abbreviated season, all league games will be 5-on-5 Co-ed, speed point rules, (3:2 OR 2:3 gender ratio - ENDZONE CHOOSES Ratio) with the game ending at a set determined time by the captains or sun-down. See link for modified rules: https://www.tuc.org/sites/default/files/Return%20to%20Play%20Rules%20-%20TUC%202020.pdf

The 2020 Summer League Captains' Meeting(s) will be some combination of virtual, drop-in and/or player package.

League Contacts: The TUC conveners for the 2020 Summer League will be announced soon. General questions about leagues should be addressed to the convener listed for the league in question. However, in order to reduce the flood of emails to the convener, if you are a player and have a question about 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 TUC when it comes to administrative matters.


Registration for Summer Leagues is open

The cost for team registration is TBD based on the number of weeks we will have to play out the season (the 2019 summer team fee was $1,550); Individual registration (for those who want to register as a solo player) is setup so that we either match you with a team in need of additional players or we form a HAT team based on player preferences. Registration AND payment confirms your spot. If you register, but don't pay, this does NOT hold your spot! Complete summer team registration includes payment in full by the registration deadline and a minimum of 12 members on your roster within one week of your first game. Also, only EVEN amounts of teams will be taken to create viable leagues. Should a league registration conclude with, for example, 17 teams, the 17th team to register will be asked to move to a different day/league or refunded in full. Ensure to sign up as early as you can to avoid this issue! If you have any questions, contact adults@tuc.org.

All players must be valid TUC members. If you possess a 2019/2020 membership that was valid for May 2019 - April 2020 then you must acquire a new membership in order to play in ANY Summer Leagues (league fees still apply). If you are joining the Club in the Summer we offer an Introductory membership for brand new TUC members, which runs through to April 30, 2021. To help introduce new players to Ultimate and to accommodate visitors from out-of-town, there are monthly membership options available. All players must sign the waiver of liability form before stepping on the field. 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.

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), be sure to follow TUC's Bad Weather PolicyMetal 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.
