Summer League

Updated June 5 - ready to go for 2021!

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

With 230 teams, this league is one of the world's largest ultimate leagues. We have 7 divisions each night so there's room for everyone to play at their level.

We offer two options. Regular format is the most popular option - you play two games per night over 2.5 hours. Single format is for players with families or less time - you play one game over 2 hours. Single games are often near playgrounds to be family-friendly.

Important 2021 Notes

  1. Duration depends on the number of teams due to field constraints. We expect 8 weeks and will know when reg closes. 
  2. Most captains preferred 7v7 this summer. If two teams are short players, they can play 5v5 that day.
  3. Safety is still paramount. We may start with 1m or 2m marks. Read about our Summer Safety Plans
  4. Games will start at 6:30 pm sharp on grass, and 7:15 sharp on turf. Read more about Start Times
