Before getting into this page, we expect that you've read the New Players Welcome page, and created a profile on the site as per the Joining the Club page. If that's the case, then you're ready for a membership, and you can proceed... membership registration is always open!
All players in TUC leagues must first be a valid member of the Toronto Ultimate Club. That is, first you register as a member (which supports staffing & insurance), and then you register for the appropriate league that you want to play in (which supports the actual field costs). Combined costs are still the best Ultimate value in the GTA.
If you're impatient and just want to get on with it already, you can jump straight to our membership registration page and get going; as a general rule, there will be only one or maybe two options for you there, so it's pretty straight-forward. But if you first want to learn a little more about what membership in TUC is all about or what the various options mean, please read on!

All TUC memberships are valid for one year. Our membership year is from April 1st to March 31st of the following year, making you eligible for leagues from Spring through the following Winter. For adults, we offer Adult, Introductory or Post-Secondary Student memberships.
The current annual Adult Membership fee for returning members is $70/person (effective April 1st, rate subject to change). In 2003 TUC established the Fields Fund, and a portion of the annual adult membership fee was segregated from TUC's general revenues for exlusive use to improve access to playing fields. The Fund's use is for capital projects (not operating expenses) such as field partnerships, purchasing land, upgrading brown-field sites, installing lights or artificial turf, or constructing an indoor facility. For the 2021/2022 membership year, there will be no contribution towards the Fields Fund. The membership portion of $70/person helps fund management fees, insurance costs, and membership packages. All TUC leagues and events are run on a self-financing basis.
TUC offers an Introductory Membership for $40/person (effective April 1st, rate subject to change). This one-time membership is available to adults who are brand new to the Toronto Ultimate Club (never previously been a member). Intro members are eligible to play on as many teams as they want, as long as it falls within their membership year. Once their Introductory Membership expires, they must then acquire a regular Adult Membership. Introductory Memberships also do not include Fields Fund contributions, voting rights at the TUC AGM, Board level, or other special meetings of the membership.
TUC also offers a Post-Secondary Student Membership for adults — not to be confused with the Junior Membership! Cost is $40/person (effective April 1st, rate subject to change) (no Fields Fund contribution). This membership is available to all full-time and part-time adult students - it is our way of helping students save a couple bucks! To qualify for a Post-Secondary Student Membership, you must upload a copy of your valid Student ID AND a Letter from the Registrar verifying your current student status. You will not be able to register for this membership until you have provided these uploads and they are approved by an administrator. Post-Secondary Student members are eligible to play on as many teams as they want, as long as it falls within their membership year. You can also renew a Student Membership so long as you are a valid student. Post-Secondary Student Memberships include voting rights at the TUC AGM, Board level, or other special meetings of the membership.
TUC offers a Touring Only Membership for $25/person (effective April 1st, rate subject to change). This membership allows out-of-town participants or those who do not play in TUC leagues to practice or play on TUC fields acquired for the purposes of touring development. This membership is required for insurance purposes and DOES NOT allow you to participate in any TUC leagues, does not come with a member disc, and does not grant the holder voting rights at the AGM. If you wish to upgrade this membership at any time to a full TUC membership, please contact the TUC office.
TUC offers a Monthly membership for $25/person (effective for the calendar month, rate subject to change). This membership allows out-of-town participants or those who are new to the sport to participate in TUC programming for a one-month duration. This membership is required for insurance purposes and DOES NOT come with a member disc, and does not grant the holder voting rights at the AGM. If you wish to upgrade this membership at any time to a full TUC membership, please contact the TUC office.
TUC offers a discounted membership fee of $40/person (effective April 1st, rate subject to change) to players who are aged 18 years or under as of December 31st of that calendar year. Juniors have the same privileges as adult members, except where age restrictions apply under the laws of Ontario (e.g. eligibility for the Board of Directors).
Juniors can participate in adult leagues, however to do so they MUST adhere to the Juniors Participation Policy, which requires a Responsible Adult to be present for all games and a Responsible Adult Form to be submitted to TUC.
