Ultimate NL subsidizes costs associated with various Newfoundland and Labrador teams who travel to compete out of province, both regionally and nationally.
Tempest was established in 2010 with the purpose to develop a competitive club team for women that represents Newfoundland at various tournaments across Canada every year. Tempest is currently coached by Keith Krieger and has a club size of 20+ ladies.
Tempest’s most recent success was a 4th place finish at the Jazz Festival Ultimate Tournament in Montreal in June. The 2016 plans include the No Borders Tournament in Ottawa, July 23-24th, and the Canadian Ultimate Championships in Edmonton, August 11th – 13th.
Tempest is very active on social media and can be followed on both our Instagram and Facebook accounts:
The Memorial University Men’s Ultimate Touring Team, also know as MUTT, was established in 2013. Started by Jeff Pardy and Greer Hunt, MUTT was created with several goals in mind. First, the team was to serve as a vehicle to help promote the sport of ultimate at Memorial University. It was also created as a transitional program for players graduating from the UNL junior club and high school ranks. Founded on the premise of welcoming both new and more polished players, it was also to function as a way to introduce players of varying skill levels to competitive ultimate outside the province. Finally, the team was to be a vehicle to allow players to represent both Newfoundland and Memorial University on the national level.
MUTT continues to meet each of these goals. More than 45 players attend tryouts this past September. These players were a mix of those entirely new to the sport, those graduating from the UNL high school and junior ranks, and more seasoned players. Tryouts were held on the main soccer field outside the Works on Memorial University’s St. John’s campus. Curious students were also invited to take part, thus promoting and showcasing the sport on campus. This past season was the first for the joint MUTT-MAUL league, which consisted of a series of competitive games against some of the elite men’s club and MAUL players in the city.
This past October the team traveled to Ottawa in order to take part in the Canadian Ultimate University Championships. The team finished in the middle of the pack at a strong CUUC II tournament, improving upon its finish from last year where a very rookie heavy team kept its seed and placed 12 out of 17.
MUTT will continue to strive to help players develop, as well as support their love of the game of ultimate. As a strong, grass roots program, we will continue to assist in the evolution of university aged male ultimate athletes. MUTT provides them with a vehicle to compete for Newfoundland and Labrador on a national level year after year, and is a place to meet teammates and friends that last a lifetime. We are proud to be recognized as a UNL member traveling team. UNL has worked tirelessly to promote and ensure the preservation and development of the sport of ultimate in Newfoundland. MUTT supports and encourages this agenda, as our players and alumni volunteer with UNL in various capacities.
