Financial Assistance for Youth

The VUL runs high-quality recreational and competitive youth Ultimate programs, including our junior leagues and skills camps and the country's most extensive set of youth club programs.

We want people of all ages to have fun, develop skills and character, live healthier lives, and build lasting relationships through spirited Ultimate. We strive to make our programs inclusive and accessible for all families. 

We recognize that being a part of a touring club team or elite training program, in particular, can be expensive, and we do not want cost to be a barrier. Below is a list of resources for youth ages 18 and under that help make participating in ultimate at any level more accessible.

When applying for funding, please ensure you list the "Vancouver Ultimate League Society" as the organization and not the name of the youth club program.
