Winter League Changes

New to Winter League This Year!

OCUA is excited to announce a variety of changes to our winter league for the 2019-2020 indoor season.

General Indoor Registration - opens Monday, September 23rd at 10pm

Session 2 Registration* - opens Monday, December 10th at 10pm

*The number of spots for session 2 registration will be determined by how many players sign up for session 1 only

OCUA introduced its first membership fee last winter. This year, the annual membership fee will be required to be paid before or during your winter registration. We highly recommend players pay for their annual membership in advance for popular leagues that normally sell out. The membership fee will continue to be $15 per player, and a one-time charge will cover you for OCUA’s entire fiscal year, from November 1, 2019 to October 31, 2020. This means, if you pay the one-time membership fee as a winter player, you will be covered as an OCUA member for any summer and fall ultimate you play with our organization. To learn more about the membership fee and a general FAQ, click here. To pay your 2020 membership fee, click here.

Read below to learn about some of the improvements we are making to your favourite leagues. We are very excited to see OCUA's winter leagues grow so much this year. It’s thanks to you, our dedicated members, that these leagues have grown to be such a success. Our capacity for winter leagues has doubled in size since 2015. We look forward to seeing you all under the domes.
