The Clinic will be held at Riverdale Park East from 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. (followed by pickup) and is FREE to all TUC members ($5 per non-TUC member). This is one of your last summer opportunities to get up-to-speed on basic skills and drills, as well as strategies like “breaking the force” or “beating the zone.” Please contact or register on-site to participate.

Mid-Season Classic

WOW – We are looking at 40+ teams for the Mid-Season Tournament! There are still a few spots left so be sure to register by the deadline of July 18. Visit the Mid-Season Tournament page for more details. Important notes for the big tourney:

    • Games start at 8 a.m. (*gulp!*). If you have a first round game, be sure to be warmed up and ready to start right on time. There is no “Ultimate time” with 40+ teams.
    • The tournament schedule will be posted on the website by NOON on Friday, July 21 so you can see when your games are on Saturday (Sunday will depend on Saturday results).
    • Bring water bottles – We will supply water on-site to keep you hydrated.
    • Bring some bling$ to spend on discounted Ultimate products, courtesy of our great partners GAIA Ultimate and Daredevil Discs.
    • Sport Physio Canada staff and rehab volunteers on-site to help all your aches and pains.
    • Free Special BBQ lunch on Sunday for all participants!
    • All non-TUC members are required to pay a $5 fee to participate. Captains please check in for your teams at the TUC registration tent.

Be sure to join us at the Madison on Saturday night after your games. Details will be posted on the website.

League Items

Shuffles – The second round of shuffles will take place on Friday, July 28 (for Tuesday nights) AND Friday, August 4 (for Monday, Wednesday, & Thursday nights) as the night games that were previously canceled by TUC Head Office will be re-scheduled. These games (June 29, July 10, & July 12) will be played at the end of round 2, followed by the shuffle one week later. Once again, the top two teams in each tier will move up, and the bottom two will move down. Be sure to check your team’s schedule by these dates. Also, any make-up games for the second round should be played BEFORE July 26 and reported to TUC headquarters.

Pickup – A reminder that pickup fields are available at Riverdale Park East on Friday evenings (after 6:30 p.m.) as well as Sunday afternoon (2:30 – 5:30 p.m.). If you are interested in participating in a more structured game on Fridays, contact Max at

Time Caps – As the sun is starting to set earlier at night, please start your games as early as possible and keep an eye on the clock to finish your game by Time Cap! Time Caps are posted on the Events Calendar.

Fall League – Did we mention we are offering Fall Indoor Co-Ed TEAM League night, as well as Hat Team night?!? Be sure to register on August 24!
