“Our newest team mates rose to the challenge of what must have been a difficult test for their first taste of club ultimate,” says co-captain Nick House. “Our goal was to give these players as much exposure as possible before nationals, and they handled it well.”

2017 marks the first time that NL has ever sent two teams to the national Canadian Ultimate Championships. This is a milestone that reflects the hard work of players and volunteers to grow the sport of ultimate frisbee in this province.
Tempest finished 1-1 on day 2 and 1-1 on day 3 to settle into 14th overall, finishing with our original ranking. This was Tempest’s first ever nationals and it won’t be their last!
Regiment finished off the Canadian Ultimate Championships in a strong fashion, winning both games easily to claim 13th spot. Unfortunately the weather forced the cancellation of the 9-12 bracket games. None the less a great first CUCs for the newly formed men’s team! Highlight: Regiment tied for most spirit points in the tournament!
