What is Misfit Ultimate?

Misfit is the Vancouver youth club branch of the Vancouver Ultimate League Society (VUL). VUL is a registered non-profit society originally founded in 1986.

How long has Misfit been running?

Founded in 2007, Misfit is the longest running youth program is Vancouver (maybe Canada).

What are the overarching goals of Misfit Ultimate?

As a club level organization, our goals are to promote spirit of the game, competition, improvement and fun for high school-aged players.  We are are inclusive and open to all players. Our strategic goal for touring teams is to make nationals and compete for top spot(s).  Our strategic goal for regional teams is to develop stronger players and take top spot(s) at the year end regional tournament.

Why are the prices of Misfit so much less than the private club?

Our goal is to promote ultimate, not to make a profit.  Misfit is part of the VUL, a registered non-profit society, dedicated to the promotion of the sport of ultimate.  As a non-profit, we are eligible for reduced rates on a variety of expenses and and we also rely on the generosity of volunteers who are interested in promoting the sport and Spirit of the Game.

What is the difference between Misfit summer club and the private summer club program?

Besides cost, there is no difference as far as we can tell.  Our touring teams are coached by top level coaches (open, women), practice 3 times a week, tournament fees for all summer tournaments leading to Nationals, have dedicated AHL’s (Athlete Health Liaison — physio in training), custom jerseys and a complimentary disc. Our regional teams have everything as above except for the AHL’s.
