Vortex Player & Parent Info

2018 Checklist

After tryouts, players who are accepted onto Touring and Regional must complete these steps to be eligible to participate in practices and tournaments. 

1. Registration

Touring and Regional players must register online and pay fees for their team.

  • Register here. Registration must be completed by June 15, 2018.
  • You can choose to pay by credit card, cheque/cash, or e-transfer. See fees on the main Vortex page.

2. Parental Consent

All players must have parental consent in order to participate. During tryouts, parents were asked to provide consent by signing the VULS Parental Consent Form before players could ever begin the tryout process. During registration, parents are also sent a request to provide consent online. This is preferred. 

If parents cannot provide consent online, download and complete a Parental Consent Form (PDF), and deliver it to the Coordinators.

Parental consent for season play is due by June 15th, 2018.

3. Finalizing Payment 

If you chose cheque or e-transfer when you registered, payments are due by July 1, 2018, unless a payment plan has been arranged with the Coordinators.

Alternatively, if you changed your mind, balances can be paid by credit card after registration. 

For 2018, players do not need to individually register with Ultimate Canada.

4. Printed Forms

These forms must be received by June 15th, 2018:

These forms were to have been received by May 21st, 2018:

Forms should be given directly to coaches or preferably to the Lead Coordinator.
