Adult Summer League

2021 Summer Leagues

UPDATE:  We are pleased to announce that our 2021 Summer Outdoor Season will begin the week of July 12th!  The 2021 Summer Season will be similar to Summer 2020, as we will be offering 5-on-5 leagues (speed point rules).

In April we announced that we would be offering "twice a week" leagues to allow teams and individuals the opportunity to play multiple times a week in order to comply with the Govenment of Ontario's "COVID-19 Response Framework:  Keeping Ontario safe and open", which only allowed for "small leagues" or divisions comprised of cohorts of up to 50 people.  We are pleased that the Ontario Government's new reopening framework no longer requires sports leagues to create "small" or mini-leagues of 4 teams and as such, we will no longer offer "twice a week" leagues.

We will continue to adhere strictly to government and public health guidelines, and in the interest of the health and safey of our members, some modifications will be in effect as we return to the field.  These will include:

  • Wellness screenings are required prior to each game, practice or event
  • COVID-19 rule modifications: 1-metre marking, silent stall count to 5, 2-metre spaceing on the sidelines
  • Hand and disc sanitization before, during (half-time at a minimum), and after.
  • Participants must be TUC members and listed on your roster (subs included), and attendance records kept for every practice, game or event to aid public health authorities with contact tracing.
  • Fort he first part of the season, in Step 2 of the Reopening Framework, masks will be required.  TUC leadership will re-evaluate this requirement as government and public health authorities release the details of Step 3 of Ontario's reopening framework.

All offerings will be subject to Government restrictions and guidelines, and TUC's COVID-19 Safe Return to Play Rule Modifications will be in effect. TUC's Safe Return to Play - COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines will also be enforced, including a health screening.  

Our Return to Play Guidelines for a safe return to play can be found here.

TUC leadership is also recommending, that those wishing to return to play this summer and who are eligible to be vaccinated, be at least partially vaccinated.

The league offerings listed below are ADULT Summer Leagues and are intended for Adult (18+) participants only.

For information regarding our Youth offerings, please visit the Summer Teen Programs or Summer Pre-Teen Programs page, or learn how youth can participate in adult leagues through our Juniors Participation Policy. Read below for further details on each offering and league information.

General League Info

The TUC Summer Leagues will start the week of July 12th and will run through to Sep 2nd.  

Every day of the week is treated as a separete league and on each weeknight ther are seperate divisions.  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 a set location(s) throughout the City.

Rules regarding gameplay can be found on the rules page.  Please note that we will follow TUC's COVID-19 Rule Modifications. 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 2021 summer 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 (please note these will be updated by 2 July with some additional clarifications): https://www.tuc.org/sites/default/files/Return%20to%20Play%20Rules%20-%20TUC%202021.pdf.

The 2021 Summer League Captains' Meeting(s) will be some combination of virtual, drop-in and/or player package.

League Contacts: The TUC conveners for the 2021 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 $960 based on the 8-week season we are able to offer.

Individual registration (for those who want to register as a solo player) is setup so that TUC can match you with a team in need of additional players, or a HAT team will be created based on player preferences.  You can also check out our matchmaker service to connect with teams looking for players.

If you have any questions, contact adults@tuc.org.

All players must be valid TUC members. If you possess a 2020/2021 membership that was valid for May 2020 - March 2021 or September 2020 - March 2021 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, 2022. 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 Central Tech Stadium, 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.
