Vortex Player & Parent Info

2019 Checklist

After tryouts (register here for tryouts), players who are accepted onto Touring and Regional teams 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.


  • Registration must be completed by June 1, 2019.
  • Registration must be completed before payment of team fees.
  • Payment is expected at the time of registration. If payment cannot be made in full at the time of registration, other options exist BUT players and their families MUST communicate these instances directly to the Lead Coordinator (chris.wakelin@vul.bc.ca) and not avoid this responsibility.
  • You can choose to pay by credit card, cheque/cash, or e-transfer. See fees on the main Vortex page.

For 2019, players do not need to individually register with Ultimate Canada.

2. Parental Consent

All players must have parental consent in order to participate. Upon registration, parents are sent an email request to provide consent online. This is the preferred method of consent. Make sure that parent email addresses are accurate, as players will NOT be permitted to participate until parental consent has been received.

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 1st, 2019.

3. Finalizing Payment 

If you chose cheque or e-transfer when you registered, payments are due by June 1, 2019, unless a payment plan has been arranged with the Coordinators. Players will not be allowed to play otherwise.

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


4. Contact Info

Please direct any questions regarding teams, practice schedule, tournaments, or any other inquiries to the Vortex Coordinators (rather than individual coaches). The Coordinators can be reached via email at vortex@vul.ca. For all payments related concerns, please contact directly with the Lead Coordinator (chris.wakelin@vul.bc.ca).

If needed, you can also contact our Youth Programs Manager via youth@vul.ca.
