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.
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.
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.

Ultimate NL’s annual holiday tournament, Huckfest, was a resounding success with 60 players taking part on Dec. 27.
The turnout made it was one of the largest Huckfests to date. The annual, fun holiday tournament saw participants don their finest green and red apparel to celebrate the holiday season in ultimate style.
The final saw Naughty List defeat Holly Jolly’s to take the 2018 Huckfest title.
Thank you to everyone who took part! If you have feedback on the tournament, please contact events director Erin Daly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Huckfest is a co-ed 5-on-5 tournament that will take place on Dec. 27 from 5-10 p.m. at the Techniplex. The cost is $40 for five hours of turkey-burning, cookie-cleansing fun!
This year, we’re aiming for equal numbers of male and female players to alternate gender ratios each half (i.e. the first half will be 3:2 of one gender and the second half will be 3:2 for the other gender). This will depend on the number of registrants for each gender and we’ll notify participants of changes prior to the tournament in the Facebook event.
Two members of NL Storm were named to junior all-stars at the 2018 Junior Canadian Ultimate Championships.
Madison Hull was named to the junior female squad and Cameron Penney to the junior open team. A player from each team at the tournament is named a junior all-star.
NL Storm competed at CUC Aug. 12-19 in Brampton, ON, finishing with the province’s best performance at the national competition. The open team broke seed to finish 20th (up from 24th) and 11th overall in spirit. The junior women made their first-ever appearance at CUCs, finishing 20th overall and second in spirit.
UNL’s annual Toilet Bowl will be held on Saturday, Sept. 22 from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at Fieldian Grounds.
(Please note that this has been rescheduled from the original date of Sept. 15 due to a conflict at the field.)
This 5×5 mixed hat tournament brings together players of all skill levels to compete for the prestigious title of Toilet Bowl champs.
But this ain’t no ordinary ultimate tournament. Expect some surprises and unconventional throwing implements in your quest to win the trophy!
This year, there will also be an equal number of spots (30) for male and female players. The tournament will use WFDF Ratio Rule A to ensure equal playing time if the necessary registration numbers are reached.
Cost is $20 for UNL members (non-UNL members need to purchase a UNL annual membership and pay the $30 registration fee).
Field snacks will be available for all players and UNL will be on site selling apparel so bring some cash to snag this year’s merch before it’s all gone.
