Vortex Overview

The season runs from June to August and includes tryouts, practices, and tournaments.

For 2018 we offer 2 options depending on a player's skill and goals:

  • Touring: For players who intend to compete at the Canadian Ultimate Championships (CUC).
  • Regional: For those who don't qualify for Touring, or aim to compete at BC Championships (BCUC).
  • V-Club: For players who wish to develop their skills through practices and local tournaments

Each team has 2-3 dedicated and qualified coaches. Practices are 3 times per week: usually 6:00-8:30 pm during the week, plus Saturday mornings as well.
