February Volunteer of the Month – Isaiah Masek-Kelly

Our volunteer of the month for February is Isaiah Masek-Kelly. Isaiah was a key volunteer for our "Catch the Spirit" High School Tournament in late February. Whether it was helping to setup fields, score games or report scores, Isaiah was there throughout the two days of the event. As a result, the tournament went off without a hitch. Thanks to Isaiah for all his great help!

TUC Membership 2011

All players in TUC leagues must first be a valid member of TUC, as our Club is a true not-for-profit organization driven by its membership. The new TUC membership year begins April 1, 2011 and runs through to March 31, 2012. Therefore, in order to play in Spring or Summer Leagues in 2011 you must renew your membership or signup for a new one. Then you complete your league fees. If you registered for a membership in the Fall (2010) or Winter (2011) those memberships were pro-rated and do not cover the new membership year. So first and foremost, register for your TUC 2010/2011 membership! Visit our Membership Information page for more details.

2011 Spring Leagues

Leagues run for 6 weeks and are a pre-cursor to our 16 week summer league - summer league begins the week of May 23. Spring Leagues are the perfect opportunity to gear up for the summer and get outdoors again! Note that each league has its own unique start and finish date, due to field availability.

2011 Summer Leagues

Summer League information is now posted on our Summer League General Info page and our Summer League Registration page.

Pre-Registration For Returning Summer Teams

During pre-registration period (March 14-20) the same person from summer 2010 must register the team again. If there is a new captain, have the person from 2010 register the team during the first week (but don't pay) and then contact to advise who the new captain is. We'll switch the captains (within 1-2 business days) and once we do so, the new and proper captain can complete payment and confirm your spot. We realize this isn't the most user-friendly protocol, but we want to ensure the proper team gets its spot. If your team is switching to another night you must wait until March 22, to ensure all returning teams get first crack. We recommend signing up early to get what you want and we'll do our best to slot every team in their preferred night & division.

Team fees for Summer League will be $850 per team and individual fees (for those who want to register as a solo player on a hat team) are $65 per person. 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.

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 meeting or send a team rep. Any team who does not send a representative will be penalized – expect the majority of your games to be on lesser desired fields if you do not attend the captains meeting!
