Glide Competitive Mixed Team


2014 Captain:

  • Jason Solomon

2014 Team's mission:

There is a whole lot of talent in the Ottawa-Gatineau ultimate scene. OCUA is supposedly the largest urban ultimate players association in the world, and so GLIDE aims to maximize the opportunities for players of the region to compete competitively at the National level. There are two main themes that differentiate GLIDE from other competitive mixed programs:

First, while we certainly emphasize competitiveness, our first priority is positive game play. As athletes we know we improve best when our team is constructive and we're all enjoying the sport!

Second, our team emphasizes a flexible level of commitment. This means that there are opportunities to play as much ultimate as you can handle (through planned scrimmages, affiliated league teams and regional tournaments); but it also means that if you don't have time to commit your entire life to ultimate for whatever reason (be it busy weekends, family commitments, a demanding job, low cash flow, etc.) you're not going to get hassled by anyone. In short, as players we are entrusted to determine the level of commitment that works best for both personally and the team as a whole.

2014 Performance objective:

Our objective is to compete at the Canadian Ultimate Championship (CUC) and improve upon last year's ranking where we finished 9th in Canada. CUC 2014 is being held in Waterloo, Ontario.
