Ottawa Juniors Competitive Ultimate Program

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Ottawa Juniors Competitive Ultimate Program (OJCUP) aims to grow and support competitive Ultimate for junior players in the Ottawa area. We recruit junior age players to join competitive junior teams and we train in the short summer season with aim to represent Ontario at the CUC Nationals tournament in August. 

OJCUP operates under the rules set out by Ulimate Canada, the governing body for the sport of Ultimate in Canada, and in association with the Ottawa-Carleton Ultimate Association (OCUA). OCUA is a non-profit organization in the Ottawa-Carleton area who primary mandate is to organize and promote the growth of the sport of Ultimate in the Ottawa-Carleton region. 

OJCUP consists of a group of volunteers fulfilling administrative and coaching duties, and the teams of junior players.
