Ultimate NL is excited to announce that we’ll be hosting tryouts for the 2020 Canadian 4-on-4 Ultimate Championships (C4UC) in January.

Update: Athletes can register here for tryouts.

We expect to be allotted two bids (team spots) to represent Newfoundland and Labrador. Tryouts for these teams will be held on Jan. 21 and Jan. 28 from 9-11 p.m. at the Techniplex in St. John’s.

All players interested in trying out must fill out an expression of interest prior to tryouts. This form will be available in early January. There will also be a charge of $20 per player for tryouts.

Tryouts will be based on national team tryout processes established by Ultimate Canada, which evaluate players on a number of ultimate-related skills using a predetermined matrix. A selection committee of experienced ultimate community members will evaluate players with the top 24 that earn the highest rankings (12 male-matching and 12 female-matching) being invited to participate in C4UC. 

Captains and spirited captains will be chosen after teams are selected. All players will be expected to abide by a player code of conduct.
