Catch the Spirit! – 4th Annual High School Indoor Tournament
The Toronto Ultimate Club is hosting its 4th annual “Catch the Spirit” tournament for high school teams on Wednesday February 27 & Friday February 29, 2008. Last year we reached maximum capacity before a gnarly winter storm prevented many teams from attending. This year we’re going for the most teams yet!
The tournament has two divisions – the ‘B’ division (beginner teams) will play only on Wednesday February 27 and is limited to 16 teams. The ‘A’ division (intermediate/experienced teams) will play only on Friday February 29 and is limited to 16 teams. Registration will open on January 25 and close on February 22. Spots go on a first-come first-serve basis.
TUC is putting out a call to anyone who would like to volunteer for this great event. As well, if you know of any schools who may be interested, please let them know about “Catch the Spirit!” by sending this LAYOUT or referring them to the CTS section on our website.
For more information contact email@example.com.

The new TJIL is recommended for players aged 15-18 years old and will be a co-ed, speedpoint 6-on-6 league similar to that of our adult indoor leagues. No clinics, no warm-ups, just games!

Pass this poster along to any juniors who play Ultimate! For more information visit the TJIL page on our website, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
