What's New

  • Ultimate Parks Incorporated, or UPI as friends call it, may just be the most wonderful place on earth… Built in the late 1990’s by a group of visionary ultimate players, UPI is now the home to 500 players a night and well over 1,000 players during tournaments. There is no place like this in the world: lined fields, lush grass, plenty of space to play, have your kids run around and your dog go crazy!
  • BOTTLE DRIVE JULY 28-31 @ UPI Play your ultimate game, clean out your garage, AND help the Ottawa Juniors Competitive teams and coaches get to Nationals! During the evenings of July 28 to 31 (Monday to Thursday), the Ottawa Juniors Competitive teams (Wicked, Ignite and O.T.T.) will be holding a bottle drive at UPI. Please support them by bringing your empties to UPI with you on the way to your games! They will be set up at the Entrance to UPI beside field 12. Every bottle helps! Monetary donations also gratefully accepted. Thank you in advance for all your encouraging support of our Ottawa Juniors Competitive Teams!
  • You wish to get more playing time, but can't commit to an entire summer with a (another) league team? You are visiting Ottawa for a few days and would love to have a great time playing Ultimate? It's nice outside and you simply feel like playing? **** First Pick-Up of 2014 starts this Sunday (June 15)! ****
  • The OCUA Rules Committee is introducing the Rules Guru program. Every team can request that a Rules Guru attend their game to provide feedback to the team’s Rules Keeper and players about the interpretation and application of the rules. They will be there to answer any questions you have about the rules in general or to provide an explanation of the rules as situations come up in your game.
  • The OCUA Game Call & Player Safety One of the major challenges of running an outdoor sports league is deciding when environmental factors pose a risk to the safety of players and a risk of damaging the fields – both of which can have substantial impact on the organization. OCUA has shown true stewardship in protecting both City-owned fields and our own fields at UPI from damages due to overuse and improper usage.

How To Care For UPI

Ultimate Parks Incorporated, or UPI as friends call it, may just be the most wonderful place on earth… Built in the late 1990’s by a group of visionary ultimate players, UPI is now the home to 500 players a night and well over 1,000 players during tournaments. There is no place like this in the world: lined fields, lush grass, plenty of space to play, have your kids run around and your dog go crazy!

It sadden us to see that despite the best efforts of the majority of us to keep this place clean and safe, there are some that push the limits of what is acceptable… Here are 5 easy tips as to how each of us can individually care for UPI.

1. Park in designated area only

We have a massive parking lot available for your parking needs. No one should park up on the rise, even if it is closer to your game… Only authorised personnel can park up on the rise.

2. Carpool to your game

Despite our massive parking lot, there are nights where the fields are booked at maximum capacity and parking becomes limited. Please carpool. Use the “Carbon flip rule” to start your game: whichever team used the least number of cars to get to UPI wins the game flip!

3. Take your trash home with you

There is no waste removal at UPI. Leaving your trash by the corner of the parking lot won’t make it disappear… Or it might, but that’s only because another generous player will take it home.

4. Clean up after your dog

Well, this is an easy one. All dog lovers like us know they need to clean up after their dog everywhere, everyday. UPI isn’t an exception to the rule.

5. Porta potties are NOT a big garbage bin

Long John porta potties are cleaned once a week. You can image that with the traffic at UPI on any given night they get dirty pretty quickly. No need to add dog waste, diapers, trash to it… Please take your garbage home with you!

Needless to say that these tips are easy and can make a big difference in keeping UPI as clean as it deserves to be! Your cooperation is greatly appreciated by the staff and directors of OCUA and also by your fellow teammates and opponents.

Thank you!
