Spirit of the Game Makes Ultimate Ultimate

Spirit of the Game is a core concept in Ultimate. Although vital, Spirit of the Game can be a tricky thing to define or describe to those who have not experienced it. On the surface, Spirit of the Game is a framework for rules enforcement, it requires each player to do their best to look objectively at situations in an ultimate game that they are involved in and to apply the rules correctly, regardless of the effect that their decision will have on their own fortunes in a game.

I need to explain this

During the normal course of writing articles, I try to inject some levity into them. This may come in the form of a joke or sarcasm. Most of the time these attempts at humor fall flat but they fit within the context and do not have a negative impact in perceptions that the audience may hold. Other times though, there may be misconceptions which do not have broad impact. On the rare occasion something that I posted or said does have an impact because I failed to provide context and expected the readers to understand what was posted.

O4C – East Sectionals

Last year the 4v4 Championships were held in Ottawa with three, of the eight teams Ontario teams, calling the region home. With that significant of a contribution the section received four bids to Ontario Championships (OC) this year. However, it appears that Ontario Ultimate (OU) was generous as six teams, from the east, registered for sectionals. The ratio of four bids for six teams provides the best opportunity to make the championships. Read on to find out a bit more about each team as well as their chances of making Ontario Championships.

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.
