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.

Congratulations, Madison and Cameron! We look forward to continuing to see you on the field.
Congrats to Young Guns on winning the MZU Winter BIY League.! They bested Blackhorse to claim the championship.
During the holiday season of 2016, MAUL and SWURL each held a pick-up game at the Techniplex. To play, people had to sign up, and bring non-perishable food items or a cash donation. All items received by the leagues were donated to the Single Parent Association of Newfoundland and Labrador.
Board members of the Men’s Avalon Ultimate League (MAUL), Mile Zero Ultimate (MZU), and the St. John’s Women’s Ultimate Recreational League (SWURL) are continuing talks on an eventual merger of the three leagues. The meetings to date have gone well, and the boards intend to make a presentation to members later this winter on the progress of the talks and the nuts and bolts of the merger.
One of the main reasons for the merger is that the existing leagues all have their own, fairly large, independent boards. By consolidating into a single league that offers what the three existing leagues offer, there will be less redundancies in volunteer efforts in St. John’s’ Ultimate community, which will allow the league to better serve its members.
In advance of the next meeting of the boards in January, MAUL, MZU, and SWURL encourage anyone in the ultimate community with a question or concern to please bring it to their attention. The leagues will answer questions at the public meeting of course, but they feel it will be beneficial to have an understanding of members’ concerns or suggestions prior to preparing a public statement.
Any member with an inquiry or suggestion can email a board member of any of the respective leagues, or can email Alex Bill, a de facto mediator for the talks, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This winter, MAUL has a 4-on-4 league at the Techniplex. Four-on-four is fairly different from 5-on-5 and 7-on-7, as the field and endzones are all quite small. Check out the scores and standings at http://www.maul.ca/e/maul-winter-4×4/standings

Tempest had a very successful showing at No Borders. No Borders is a tournament that took place in Ottawa, Ontario July 24th-25th at the luxurious UPI fields. It includes open, women’s, mixed, and Junior women and Junior Open. This year Tempest placed 5th, with two very close games that were lost on Universe Point to the final 3rd and 4th place teams. Despite the 40’C temperature, we had all players play the full weekend and we came back with big smiles and no injuries. Thanks to our amazing coach, Keith Krieger, for working with us again this year and sharing his ultimate wisdom!
