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.
Launched by Sport BC, KidSport B.C. is a grant program that aims to remove the financial barriers that prevent some children from playing organized sports. Learn more at KidSport BC.

The Lucy L. Woodsworth Fund was originally established in 1977 by Grace McInnis in memory of her mother, Lucy Woodsworth, who was known for her compassion and commitment towards children. Today, the fund provides grants to children of low-income families in order to give them an opportunity to participate in social, cultural and athletic activities outside of the classroom. Visit the Alexandra Foundation for more details on how to apply for the Lucy L. Woodsworth Fund for Children.
