Dear TUC Member,

Spirit of the Game

TUC is sponsoring a contest to help find a new “Spirit Statement” for our league. We are looking for submissions for a short statement which clearly defines what Spirit of the Game is, and why it is important. This statement will be used to promote spirited play in the league; it will appear on the TUC website, in TUC publications, and be used by TUC players as they help to spread the word. Take this chance to leave your stamp on the league while promoting spirit and winning some free stuff!

Submissions should be shorter than 12 words, and can be submitted directly to We are now accepting last minute submissions. The winner will receive a $30 gift certificate to the TUC shop, where anyone can pick up some discs, gear, VC apparel, etc.

Stay tuned for further Spirit of the Game updates and announcements in this spot. If you would like to volunteer with the Spirit Committee, have any stories you’d like to share, or questions you’d like answered, please email



Playoffs Baby, Woo!!!

The teams are now set for the Monday/Tuesday playoffs, which take place this Saturday September 12 at Sunnybrook Park. The final schedule will be posted on our home page on Friday and emailed to the captains. This is a tournament so plan to be there for the bulk of the day – we will do our best to balance the schedules and accommodate all variables. There will be on-site athletic therapy coverage, tournament food (we recommend you bring your own lunch), water jugs on sidelines, VC Ultimate and TUC Shop on site, and our friendly managers and volunteers there to assist you.

There is still time for Wednesday and Thursday teams to register for their playoffs on September 19. Registration/dropout deadline is Tuesday September 15. Good luck to all teams!

If you are interested in being a part of this great team, email and we’ll hopefully see you at the AGM!

Bradley Wentworh is the August Volunteer of the Month.

Bradley Wentworth is our August Volunteer of the Month. A product of TUC Junior Summer Leagues himself, Bradley has given back tremendously to the TJSL this season. He was our convenor for the TJSL North region and he helped in promoting TJSL city-wide. Every Wednesday evening this summer, Bradley could be found leading upwards of 50 youth in ultimate drills and games. He coordinated the administrative aspects of the league and he was pivotal in providing instruction and encouragement to new young players. At our recent TJSL Finals, Bradley was once again a key figure in organizing games and providing a fun environment for our up and coming Juniors.

A big thanks to Bradley for all of his efforts this summer!

Each V.O.M. will receive $50 Scally’s Dollars that can be used towards any purchase at Scallywags.


Nina Ramic, our Events Manager, is no longer at the TUC office and is back to school this fall. We’d like to thank Nina for all of the hard work she put into her position this summer – Nina you did a fantastic job! We encourage all members to pop by the TUC tent at the playoffs and thank Nina for her efforts and wish her well.
