For the first time in the series Ontario held 4 Sectionals: West , North, East , and South . From those sections, 12 teams earned bids to Ontario Championships. Read on to find out who made it, and in some cases, how they made it.

C4UC 2017 – Predictions

The Canadian 4 on 4 Ultimate Championships shall be held this weekend in Ottawa with 24 teams stock full of talent vying for the crown. I have thought long and hard about predictions and the reality is that it is quite difficult to do so. All the way from the top seeded team to the 24th seed there is little to differentiate any of them. In this tournament you are 2 minutes away from losing a game.

How many bids exactly?

There is controversy brewingbetween Ultimate Canada and Ontario with regards to C4UC. This past weekend OUC was held with the tournament format arranged to send 8 teams to Nationals. This was based upon the websitewhich at the time indicated 8 bids for Ontario. Following the tournament the bids were reallocated with Ontario now receiving 7 bids. This has ignited criticism from Ultimate Canada members in Ontario for a few reasons with the primary one being that bids for the regions should have been determined prior to regionals.

CUC Mixed 2016 – Recap

Why is it that you play Ultimate? Do you play because of your friends/teammates? Love of the game? Or for money and adulation? Why do we push ourselves to play year after year despite recurring injuries, the financial strain of training and travel, and the horrific weather conditions that send players in more popular sports scurrying for shelter. What are we chasing? What are we addicted to?

CUC 2016 – Idle thoughts

The adult divisions, aside from Mixed, kick off play today in sunny Edmonton with great weather expected for the next few days. Let me rephrase that, it’s great weather if you like sunshine, inconsequential wind, and temperature in the mid-20s. Some of us prefer more adverse conditions but I guess this shall do. Anyways, the big story for this tournament is that masters teams are poaching from the younger divisions…or something like that.
