General League Info

Indoor leagues use the no-pull, speedpoint format **. There are no pulls between points; once the offence scores a point, the disc is placed in the endzone where it's caught and the defense immediately takes possession. Rules regarding game play, substitutions, and more can be found on the TUC indoor 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.

** Sunday 4-on-4 League plays with Quebec-style rules. Please see Sunday 4-on-4 League for full details

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 winter leagues. Individuals who wish to sign up will be used to form a HAT Team based on skill level. For Winter 2017, registration will open at 12:00pm on Tuesday, November 29 (12:00pm on Monday, November 28 for the Discraft Parity League) and close about a week before the league in question starts play, or when specific leagues reach capacity. All registered teams/individuals will be posted a few days before league play starts. If you are not on that list, please contact Alex Bittermann, Manager of Member Services at 416-461-0882 or memberservices@tuc.org immediately.

Registration AND payment confirm your spot. If you register, but don't pay, this does NOT hold your spot! Complete winter 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 September 2015 - August 2016 then you must acquire a new membership in order to play in ANY Winter Leagues (league fees still apply). If you are joining the Club in the Winter we offer an Introductory membership for brand new TUC members, which runs through to August 31, 2017. Any non-TUC player may participate in a maximum of two games in the Winter 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 convenors for the 2017 Winter League's can be found on the TUC convenors page (updated before the league starts).

General questions about leagues should be addressed to the convenor listed for the league in question. However, in order to reduce the flood of emails to the convenor, 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.

Wednesday @ Monarch - Co-ed Discraft Parity League

Back by popular demand AND GROWING! The TUC Parity League will be played at Monarch Park Stadium and is played like a regular 6-on-6 indoor game (4:2 gender ratio) with all the same indoor rules, except it incorporates individual statistical tracking, balanced team competition, and social mayhem! Imagine Fantasy Football only you are actually playing! Player stats (eg. goals, assists, D’s, turnovers) for each game are tracked, and these stats (along with game scores) are submitted weekly. Player values rise and drop based on their statistics. GM's can trade players throughout the season and are essentially forced to do so in order to stay under league-imposed ‘salary caps’. The end result is more balanced games and even more social variety than a typical HAT league... plus individual Stat leader awards! Registration is by individual only; this season there will be no co-player requests. If you would like to play with someone all season, you must be a GM and draft/trade for them! There will be a spot during registration where you can indicate if you are interested in being a GM for this season. This season GM's will receive 30 volunteer points... but that's not why you do it! GM’s, the player draft, league theme, salary cap changes and anything else we come up with will be announced in January.

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.
