Status Update May 28
The start date for Summer League is TBD. All Vancouver fields have been closed until June 15 and may be closed further.
Registration is still open. We hope to run a shorter league during the remaining summer months!
All teams that have registered will retain their place in the queue. Because the start date is unknown and the total cost will change, we will refund teams that paid in full except for $100 to act as a deposit. If you wish to cancel your registration and be refunded in full, please email Katie at LM@vul.ca.
Please see our COVID article for more information and weekly updates. Let's hope the virus will be sufficiently contained so we can play this summer!
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 in 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
