General League Info

The TUC Summer Leagues begin play in late May (this year, starting the week of May 23). The season will last up to 16 weeks (15 games), ending on the Thursday before Labour Day Weekend (September 1). Every day of the week is treated as a separate league and on each weeknight we offer 'East' and 'West' Divisions for our Intermediate and Recreational Leagues. TUC will do our best to locate games in those areas, 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. All Summer League games are 7-on-7 Co-ed games (4:3 gender ratio) with the game ending once one team hits 17 points (or sun-down).

The 2016 Summer League Captains' Meeting(s) will take place on Thursday May 12 OR Wednesday May 18 at Whistler's Grille, 995 Broadview Ave, 7:00 - 9:00 pm. ALL team captains (Mon - Thurs) MUST participate in one of these two mandatory meeting's.

League Contacts: The TUC conveners for the 2016 Summer League have been announced. 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 opens on March 23, 2016

The cost for team registration is only $1200; Individual registration (for those who want to register as a solo player on a HAT team) is only $85 per person (per HAT team). Registration AND payment confirm 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 paid members on your roster within one week of your first game. If you have any questions, contact memberservices@tuc.org.

All players must be valid TUC members. If you possess a 2015/2016 membership that was valid for April 2015 - March 2016 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 March 31, 2017. Exceptions can be made for for a newly recruited player. Any such non-TUC player may participate in a maximum of two games in the Summer 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.

NEW for 2016! The Sunday Masters League is a 7-on-7 offering (4:3 male:female ratio). To be eligible, male players must be 33+ years of age and females must be 30+ years of age, or turning that age in 2016. Registration is by individual only, and teams will be assigned. You can request one person to play with and we will do our best to accommodate those requests.

Due to the fact that the Masters League is on Sunday afternoons (and some players will miss up to 50% of their games with vacations, etc), TUC has organized this league with 20 players per team and an incredibly low price per player! At only $50 per player, even if you only attend half of the games (7 of 14 weeks), it is still less than $4.00 per hour for Ultimate on a top tier turf field! And you don't have to feel bad about letting your teammates down by missing a week, as there will be 12 males and 8 females per team!

Dates: Runs from Sunday, May 29 to Sunday, August 28 (14 weeks)
Game Time: 4:00 pm (rental ending at 6:00 pm)
Location: Cherry Beach (all games)
Format: 7-on-7 Co-ed Masters; ratio is 4:3 male:female

Cost: $50 / player
Maximum number of individuals: 48 males and 32 females

Registration status: As of June 10: Space remaining for 0 males, 13 females


 

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.
