COVID-19 UPDATE: What the Red Level Restrictions Mean to TUC

Dear Fellow TUC Members,

TUC Leadership continues to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic locally, provincially, nationally and internationally.

On 3 November 2020, Premier Doug Ford announced the Province's new framework (COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open), which afforded more flexibility and a targeted approach to balance public health and the economy.

This new framework has five (5) phases/levels: Green, Yellow, Orange, Red and Grey, with each level/phase having more stringent restrictions. Green being the equivalent of Stage 3, and Grey, being a lockdown, like Stage 1.

On 3 November, Doug Ford announced that Toronto would remain in modified Stage 2 until 14 November, at the request of Toronto Public Health. And that on 14 November, Toronto would shift to the new system in the Orange Phase. At that time, TUC leadership began to work with our venue providers to discuss the fall indoor season.

On Tuesday, 10 November, Toronto Public Health announced that Toronto would, on 14 November, move into the Red phase of the new framework and would remain in the Red phase for twenty-eight (28) days. In the Red phase, team sports are not allowed to play games or scrimmage, and can only train in groups of 10 participants (or less). In addition to the base restrictions of the Red phase, Dr. De Villa has strongly recommended that Torontonians limit all contact to those in their household.

Unfortunately, in that vein, TUC activities will remain suspended to align with the new framework, and per our local Public Health authority's recommendation.

Lastly, we know that on Friday, 20 November (today), that Premier Ford will be announcing additional restrictions, and TUC leadership will review these measures and will advise how and if they affect TUC and its programming.

Kind Regards,

Jo Malisani
Executive Director


Covid-19 Update - October 4th, 2020

TUC Fall Outdoor Programs Cancelled

Good Morning Athletes, Parents and Coaches,

Over the past 3 days, the TUC staff have been watching press conferences, reading bulletins, and discussing and creating what-ifs plans regarding case numbers and infection rates.

We’ve set up our own evaluation system to determine whether we feel comfortable running, and unfortunately, we have surpassed those thresholds. While the City of Toronto has not banned outdoor sports, we know that Toronto Public Health has ceased contact tracing in light of overwhelming case counts. Toronto's Medical Officer of Health, Dr. DeVilla, has also recommended “as much as possible that we only consider leaving our homes for essential activities.”

In our eyes, running an ultimate program is not a risk we’re willing to take when the public health system is strained, and the health of so many people is on the line.

We’ve also had a number of parents and coaches inform us they would not be able to attend today (while the weather has not been a significant factor in our decision, it has likely been a consideration for many who have already opted out of today’s programs).

In light of all of the above, we are making the difficult decision to cancel today’s session.

This will unfortunately conclude our Fall Outdoor season. It’s not the way we wanted it to end, but, given the summer that we had, it was a tremendous joy to get out and see everyone enjoying the sport over the past 3 weekends.

I want to thank all of you for trusting us to make ultimate as safe as possible under these conditions, and an extra big thanks to all of our coaches who donated their time, and took the brave steps back onto the field to make these programs so amazing. I can’t say enough about all of you, and I really wish we could take the field one last time so that we could give you all the big round of applause you deserve.

Because this was not a mandated closure, but one we chose to enact ourselves, we will be automatically applying a credit of $12.50 to everyone who registered for the class. TUC has been under significant financial strain over the past 7 months, and so:

  1. If you require a refund, rather than a credit, please let us know, and we will do our best to accommodate you.
  2. If you would like to donate your credit to the club, please let us know, and we’ll mark it as such.

Once again, thank you, and we hope to see you all on the fields very soon!

Stay safe,
Jamie, on behalf of the TUC Staff


Covid-19 Update - July 30th, 2020

Stage 2.5 Return to Play - Pick-up Event Thursday, August 6th - Registration Open Now!

TUC Staff will be onsite to lead and guide participants through our Safe Return to Play Guidelines, as well as our Return to Play Rule Modifications.

Sign-up today!

Stage 3 Return to Play Offerings for Individuals - Summer Registration Opens August 3rd!

We know many of you are excited about the City of Toronto entering Stage 3 of the Province of Ontario's Reopening Framework today, as are we!

We are excited to announce details of our offerings for August!

We will be offering Adult Pick-up Leagues for those whose summer teams are not participating in our 4-week summer adult leagues. These Pick-up Leagues require sign-up and will be limited to 50 participants to adhere to Government Return to Play Guidelines. These leagues might be the only way to play twice per week in Ontario!

All Adult Pick-Up League registrations will open on Monday, August 3rd, 2020, at 5:00 P.M.

In addition to our Adult Pick-up offerings, we are also pleased to announce the following Junior Offerings:

More details about our Junior Summer 2020 Program can be found here.

All Junior Summer Program registrations will open on Monday, August 3rd, 2020, at 5:00 P.M.

Fall Outdoor League Plans

Lastly, we wanted to share our plans for the Fall Outdoor Season.

We anticipate that the City of Toronto will still be in Stage 3 and as such, we are planning to run a 4 to 5 week Fall Outdoor Season. We will have a week off between our summer season and our fall season so that we have a 7-day "isolation" period so that we can reset the league and change up the small groups (cohorts/pods). Please note, so of our usual outdoor venues, like Lamport, will not technically be outdoor, as they were unable to take down their domes.

We anticipate announcing our Fall Outdoor offerings in the coming weeks, and we look forward to seeing more of you on the ultimate field!

Kind Regards,
TUC Staff - Jamie, Jo, and Matt.


Covid 19 Update - July 23rd, 2020

On Monday, July 13th, 2020, Premier Doug Ford announced that regions of Ontario would begin to enter Stage 3 as of Friday, July 17th, 2020 of the Province of Ontario's Reopening Framework. Further to that, Premier Ford, on Monday, July 20th, 2020, announced that all regions except Toronto, Peel and Windsor-Essex would enter Stage 3 on Friday, July 24th, 2020.  

While Toronto remains in Stage 2, we anticipate that we will enter Stage 3 in the coming week(s), and we wanted to share what that means for the Toronto Ultimate Club.

Over the last few weeks, TUC leadership and staff have:

  • Worked and liaised with other Sports Organizations (Ultimate Canada, Ontario Ultimate, OCUA, UGM, and other provincial and local sports organizations) on Return to Play Rule Modifications for Stage 3.
  • Drafted TUC's COVID-19 Return to Play Rule Modifications. You can read the full document here.   
  • Published TUC's Safe Return to Play - COVID-19 Guidelines. You can access the working document here.  

 

When we enter Stage 3 and permits are approved, all TUC events (training, clinics, games, etc.) must follow the approved Safe Return to Play guidelines.

Some Key Updates from the Province’s Stage 2 to Stage 3 Reopening Framework’s Guidelines:

  • Amateur and recreational sports leagues may resume so long as they do not allow prolonged or deliberate physical contact between players or if they have modifications to avoid physical contact between players.
  • Leagues must contain no more than 50 participants in total. If the number of participants exceeds 50, the league can divide into smaller groups (cohorts/pods) of no more than 50 people.
  • Additionally, players are not permitted to play against players outside of their league or group of 50.
  • Spectators are permitted and are subject to the mass gathering limits, maintain 2 metres (6 feet) physical distancing from other spectators and the participants.  

 

With the above considerations, TUC's goal is to have a 4-week season commencing in August, with potentially an exhibition game before season start (dependent on when Toronto enters Stage 3, and when permits are issued). 

To ensure we adhere to cohorts/groups of 50 participants or less:

  • For our Adult leagues, TUC will be creating divisions of 4 teams, and teams will have a maximum roster size of 12.  
  • For our Junior leagues (leagues with gameplay), athlete numbers will be limited to 45 athletes.
  • For our development (clinics/junior instructional) program, athlete numbers will be capped at 20 to 30 athletes.

 

Adult Summer League Registrations are open for both teams and individuals. Check out our 2020 Summer League Page for more information and to register.  

Once TUC gets the go-ahead from our permit providers and the appropriate municipal authorities, we will communicate out the start dates of our Summer Leagues and Programs to you, our members!

 


Covid 19 - Update July 3rd, 2020

On Wednesday, June 24th, 2020, the City of Toronto officially announced that the City had entered Stage 2 of the Province of Ontario's reopening framework, and we wanted to share what that means for the Toronto Ultimate Club.  Over the last several weeks, TUC leadership has been:

  1. Working and liaising with the City regarding what Return to Play activities look like within Stage 2.
  2. Working with Sports Organizations (Ultimate Canada, Ontario Ultimate, and other provincial and local sports organizations) to create and collaborate on what Return to Play looks like, as well as Return to Play guidelines for Ultimate.
  3. Submitting Return to Play Guidelines from our recognized national and provincial sporting governing bodies to the City of Toronto as a part of the Stage 2 permit application process.
  4. Drafting TUC specific Return to Play Guidelines which incorporates our recognized sport governing body’s guidelines, as well as municipal guidance that is currently under review for approval.

If/when we Return to Play within the City of Toronto's Stage 2 guidelines, and permits are approved, all TUC events (training, practice, clinics, etc.) must follow the approved Return to Play guidelines.

Some Key Points to the Return to Play Guidelines in Stage 2:

  • Team sports are allowed to ONLY TRAIN (NO GAMES/SCRIMMAGES).
  • Only 10 participants are allowed in the permitted space.
  • Participants are to arrive in their training kit ready to train (sports are to follow the arrive --> train --> leave model).
  • There will be designated entry and exit point(s) (TUC will update the Fields section in Zuluru to include these designated entry/exit points).
  • All participants must complete a Wellness Screening before they leave for the field. TUC will also be doing a "symptom check" on arrival at the field.
  • Part of the wellness screening will include signing a declaration of compliance, that states participants:
    • Are Symptom-free,
    • And members of their household have been Symptom-free for the past 14 days,
    • Have not travelled outside of Canada or the Province of Ontario in the last 14 days.
    • A minimum sanitization schedule must be in place for participants and equipment (ex. before the start of the session, at least once during the session, and after the session).
  • Participants are to bring their own water bottle and ensure their bottle has their name on it (no sharing).
  • Maintain 2 metres (6 feet) distancing during the session.
  • No spectators (minors can have 1 parent/guardian present, but this parent/guardian is considered a part of the participant numbers).

Once TUC gets the go-ahead from our permit providers and the appropriate municipal authorities, we will communicate out any offerings that we will be able to provide to our membership while we are in Stage 2, as well as the approved Return to Play Guidelines to the membership.

Covid 19 - Update April 24th, 2020

Toronto Ultimate Club - 2020 Summer Season

*** Please note - The Following Information is meant to provide some insight into what an eventual return to the fields might look like. We still do not know when that return will occur, and it is unlikely that all of the procedures below would be implemented simulanteously ***

When and How Can We Return to Play?

The road back to 7v7 ultimate in Toronto depends most heavily on the advice of our local, provincial, and federal governments and health organizations.

With that in mind, we’ve been brainstorming what the road back might look like, and we thought it would be helpful to share those plans.


Timing: It’s likely that every facet of your life currently has an ever-shifting timeline, and projections on when things might get back to normal. At this time (April 23rd), we are hoping that we can have a 10-week Summer 2020 season, which would begin the first week of July, and run through until playoffs in September.

The Shifting Timeline:  It should come as no surprise that a July start date cannot be guaranteed. Aside from the season potentially shifting/condensing further into 2020, we may also see a situation where regulations are slowly eased, or where they are fluctuated throughout potential waves of the Covid-19 virus.

This may affect the size of teams, and the total number of players that can be on the field at once (including transitions between games). We may face situations where team sizes need to start smaller than 7v7, but then may grow (or need to be further condensed).

Game Modifications:

There is a broad spectrum of how this may take shape, but here are some of the ideas that we are preparing for. Of course they may not all be introduced, but we want to consider all of our options as we believe that playing-with-modifications is better than not playing at all. 

·        Games are smaller than 7v7. Likely 5v5, but possibly all the way down to 3v3.

·        Increased physical buffer sizes between fields

·        Increased buffer times between games (reducing the need for 4 teams to be at a single field during transition). Members encouraged to depart quickly, and wait in cars or outside venue before getting to field. This may shorten game times slightly.

·        Teams being assigned different parking lots/entrances to multi-field locations

·        Mandatory disc sanitization schedule (sanitize, or change the disc every x points, or x minutes). 

·         Captain’s Checklist before each game – similar to many current essential employers, each player would be asked if they have experienced symptoms prior to gameplay.

·        Enhanced monitoring from TUC Staff: If there is a suspected case of Covid-19 within TUC that may have exposed other members to risk, staff will follow up with those at risk, and may adjust schedules as needed.

·        Mandatory face-coverings/buffs for all players.

·        Mandatory gloves/hand sanitization.

·        No spitting/expelling of fluids (please, just never do this).

·     Increase the marking distance.

·     Verbal stall counts only begin at 5 (reduces close-proximity speaking by ~80%+).

·       Teams using their own discs on offense. The defense touching the disc creates a turn (just knock it down). Play than pauses while the disc is switched. Alternatively, teams could play 1-possession points, alternating O and D (These would cause significant change to gameplay, and are likely some of the last alterations we would consider).

Adult and Junior Comp/Elite/Touring Notice:

Ultimate Canada is still reviewing if CUC’s may occur, and what they might look like if they do. The added risks of travelling mean that the touring season may be at greater risk of being cancelled than local play.

TUC staff are monitoring this situation, and planning contingencies to provide expanded competitive and elite divisions within the city, including Adult and Junior Open and Womxn’s leagues.

If CUC’s are not able to run, or if the club season is cut excessively short, TUC will look to run an Elite/Touring tournament in the Fall, assuming there is demand and provincial approval for such an event. 

 


Covid-19 Update #5

Dear Fellow Members,

TUC Leadership continues to monitor the developments around COVID-19 in Toronto, within Ontario, across Canada, and around the Globe. We continue to be committed to providing you, our fellow members with the latest information.

Federal, provincial and local governments and their respective public health agencies continue to urge us to do our part via social distancing measures, and self-isolation to "plank the curve" and reduce the spread of this virus. In addition to this guidance, on Monday, March 23rd, Mayor John Tory declared an Emergency in the city of Toronto. Today the city announced that effective immediately, all City-owned parks, sports fields, tennis courts, basketball courts, playgrounds, outdoor fitness equipment and Frisbee golf locations are closed to stop the spread of COVID-19.  

In addition to these public health measures to mitigate community spread, government agencies are also implementing financial measures: federally, with the passage of Bill C-13, the COVID-19 Emergency Response Act, provincially with Ontario's Action Plan, Responding to COVID-19 and locally with Toronto's COVID-19: Economic Support & Recovery Task Force  to support individuals and small business during this unprecedented crisis.  

To the members of our TUC community who are front line workers - health care professionals, emergency services personnel, grocers, pharmacists, etc. - thank you for your services!

Let's continue to support the front line workers in our community, by doing our part - staying home, and practising physical distancing and TUC leadership will continue to find ways to keep us socially connected with our TUC@HOME series, watch parties and some FREE webinars.  

We will continue to issue updates as appropriate, when guidance and advice from governmental agencies, specifically relates to the Toronto Ultimate Club.

Lastly, we have launched a COVID-19 resource centre on our website that is accessible from our home page and contains our media releases and the resources we've been sharing throughout this crisis. We urge you to continue to check out this webpage.

Again, as a reminder, please take a moment to read through these everyday actions that will help you, friends and family remain healthy:

  • We encourage all members to wash their hands thoroughly and often with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitizer. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.
  • If you are feeling unwell, stay home.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue (immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands).
  • If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve or arm.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
  • Avoid mass gatherings.
  • Avoid crowds.
  • Keep 2 metres (6 feet) away from others.
  • Limit your trips outdoors.
  • Stay physically active indoors via aerobics or online exercise classes.
  • And if you must go out for walks or exercise, keep your distance from others.

We have also provided links below to resources from the World Health Organization (WHO), Health Canada, Department of Finance Canada, Public Health Ontario (PHO), and Toronto Public Health (TPH) so that you can access the latest information about COVID-19:

Stay home, stay safe, and stay connected!

Covid-19 Update #4


Dear Fellow Members,

TUC Leadership continues to monitor the developments around COVID-19 in Toronto, in Ontario, across Canada, and around the World. We are committed to providing you, our fellow members with the latest information.

The last seventy-two (72) hours, has brought significant change for all of us as we all do our part: social distancing measures, and self-isolation to "flatten the curve" to mitigate the spread of this virus and break the chain of community spread.  

To the members of the TUC community who are front line workers - health care professionals, emergency services personnel, grocers, pharmacists, etc. - thank you.

TUC leadership continues to work on plans for our return to play. On Sunday, March 15th, we announced our short-term plan, with a tentative resumption of play on April 5th (The City of Toronto still anticipates a tentative date of April 5th for services to resume).  

We've resumed planning for the longer-term. And while we are in uncertain times, we anticipate we will have a Summer season. We will be announcing our Summer League registration dates in the coming days, and what that registration will look like given the uncertain climate.

Ultimate (and sport in general) is more than just a game or a means to be active - it is a happy place, a community, a friendship group, a support system, and a family, and in uncertain times, we need these more than ever. So, with that in mind, on Tuesday, March 17th, we launched the first installment of our TUC@HOME series. We will continue to release content several times a week with topics ranging from drills you can do at home, to strategy tips, to organizing watch parties, to sourcing FREE webinars for our membership.  

With federal, provincial and local public health authorities and government agencies holding daily press conferences to advise and keep the public apprised of the latest information regarding COVID-19, TUC will be issuing updates as appropriate moving forward, and specifically when those authorities and agencies guidance/advice impacts or relates to TUC.

Continue to check out our Facebook Page, the TUC website, and our Newsletter.

Again, as a reminder, please take a moment to read through these everyday actions that will help you, friends and family remain healthy:

  • We encourage all members to wash their hands thoroughly and often with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitizer. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.
  • If you are feeling unwell, stay home.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue (immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands).
  • If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve or arm.

Covid-19 Update #3

Dear Members,

As we continue to monitor the developments surrounding COVID-19, in Toronto, in Ontario, and across the world, TUC leadership continues to keep up to date with the latest information and remains focused on providing our members with information to protect themselves.

While the public health risk remains low, and COVID-19 is not circulating locally in Toronto, over the last few days, local, provincial and federal agencies have made several recommendations (social distancing measures) to "flatten the curve":

  • Toronto Public Health (TPH) and the Minister of Health recommended closure of licensed childcare facilities, and cancellation of March Break camps.
  • In response to TPH, the City of Toronto has canceled programs, events, and several facilities (including Lamport), with a tentative date of service resumption on 5 April.

On Thursday, March 12th, TUC announced that effective immediately, we were implementing social distancing measures and canceled all programs for two weeks (until 29 March 2020) to do our part to flatten the curve. We now anticipate that the suspension of TUC programming will be extended with play tentatively resuming on 5 April to align with the School Boards and the City of Toronto (Lamport).

Also, TUC has been hard at work discussing plans for our return to play. As of Friday evening, if the suspension is short-term (two-three weeks) we are exploring the possibility of rescheduling the missed/suspended weeks by moving outdoors; using our short break between our Winter Season end and Summer Season start, and pushing back the Summer Season start by one week to get the games in.  We are currently working with our venue providers to discuss and finalize this plan. We will continue to keep you apprised of the situation.

During the hiatus, we are also exploring ways to continue to keep our membership engaged and connected to maintain that sense of community, so we are looking at the possibilities of webinars, using social media, etc. to discuss topics like Spirit of the Game, and celebrating and sharing clubs 40-year history.

We will continue to provide updates every seventy-two (72) hours (or sooner if warranted) to you, the membership to keep you up to date. Check out our Facebook Page, the TUC website, and our Newsletter.

Again, as a reminder, please take a moment to read through these everyday actions that will help you, friends and family remain healthy:

  • We encourage all members to wash their hands thoroughly and often with soap and water or an alcohol-based sanitizer. 
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill.
  • If you are feeling unwell, stay home.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue (immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands).
  • If you don't have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your sleeve or arm.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects.
