Info for New Players

First of all, welcome to the Ottawa-Carleton Ultimate Association! We're excited you found us!

Ultimate is a high-energy sport enjoyed by people of all ages and skills, who don't mind a little running and who are looking to have a lot of fun. The game is non-contact, but that doesn't mean it isn't an incredible workout!

How to Play

The easiest way to learn Ultimate is to start playing, but before you hit the field, read up a little bit on 'How To Play Ultimate'.
