Summer League

Overview

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.

Our most popular option is the Regular Format where you play two games per night to 13 points over 3 hours. For anyone short on time, we also offer a Single Format where you play one game to 17 points over 2 hours. For the Single Format, we try to schedule games near playgrounds to be family-friendly.

During the season, we also offer various social events to mingle with old and new friends, as well as camps and clinics to improve your game. You can learn more in our article titled '9 things to Get Ready for Summer League'.
