C4UC: Call for expressions of interest

The 2019 Canadian 4-on-4 Ultimate Championships (C4UC) will take place on April 6-7 at Complexe Branchaud Brière in Gatineau, QC.

Ultimate Newfoundland and Labrador plans to send two teams to represent the province at C4UC. Players who wish to be considered for these teams must express their interest by Jan. 25 using the following form: https://goo.gl/forms/jM9s4qpuHJl7NfMh2.

Captains

Any player who would like to take on a role of team selector/captain should also fill out the selector/captain section of the form.

Team captains will be chosen by the Ultimate NL board with one female-identifying and one-male identifying captain selected per team (four captains in total). Successful team captain applicants will be notified on Feb. 1.

Selection Process

Once captains have been notified, they will be provided with a list of players who have expressed interest via the call for expressions of interest (above). However, captains are not limited to this list when selecting their rosters.

The top-seeded captains have two weeks to select their roster (Feb. 1-14). The second-seeded captains may begin to select their roster on Feb. 15. The deadline for rosters for both teams to be finalized is March 1 and payment is due to C4UC.

It is the full responsibility of team captains to select players and run the teams, including practices, if desired. Captains should be aware that there is no tryout or practice time booked. If teams wish to practice, it will be up to the players and captains to book space.
