Summer League

Our mother of all leagues, played during Vancouver’s best weather!

With over 230 teams and 30 divisions, this is the largest ultimate league on the planet. Since there can be up to 7 divisions playing each night, there's room for everyone to play at their level.

We offer two options. In Regular format, our most popular option, you play two games per night over 2.5 hours. In Single format, for those with families or less time, you play one game over 2 hours. We try to schedule Single games near playgrounds to be family-friendly.

New for 2019

You spoke and we listened! Games on grass fields will be scheduled to start at 6:30pm rather than 6:00pm (and expected to start at 6:30 pm). Everyone is busier these days, and this better reflects the reality of what actually occurs. Read more about why we made this change
