The cost for a game on a per-player basis for the summer is an average of $4 per person. Summer season is 15 guaranteed games, co-ed 7-on-7, games to 17, full field.

Captain's Meeting

The Captain’s meeting will again be held Wednesday May 18th, at Whistlers Bar and Grill (Broadview and Mortimer) in The McNeil Room. This meeting is for ALL weeknight summer teams. Each team captain MUST attend the full duration of the meeting or send a team rep in their place. Any team who does not adhere to these requests may be penalized – expect the majority of your games to be on lesser desired fields if you do not attend the captains meeting!


On 8 selected Fridays starting May 6th TUC will be hosting pickup Ultimate Frisbee at Upper Canada College from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM.

Players of all skill levels (even if you haven’t played before) are welcome and encouraged to attend. This is a great and fun way to learn the game, work on your skills, get a little exercise and to meet new people, including your fellow TUC members. After working up that sweat on the field head down to a local establishment for food and drinks.
