What's New

  • It's back, but with a twist! Instead of the traditional ladder system, teams will be placed in skill-based divisions of 4 teams. Teams may move between divisions at the beginning of a new session.
  • Everyone's favourite league is back! Teams will be placed in skill-based divisions of 4 teams. Teams may move between divisions at the beginning of a new session.
  • We are pleased to once again offer the popular Wednesday Sort-Of Hat League, although this year it is actually a hat league, but we're keeping the name. This league fills up fast and teams will be made by November 1st, so don't delay!
  • This popular league keeps track of each player's stats, and will then contribute to the player's "salary". Each team will have a salary cap and in order to maintain parity, players will need to be traded throughout the season in order to ensure they are under the cap!

COVID-19 and OCUA Events Operations

The Ottawa Carleton Ultimate Association is carefully monitoring the COVID-19 novel coronavirus situation with regard to our league operations and larger events.

* UPDATE (Friday, November 9): OCUA winter leagues and training programs will resume under new provincial guidelines with Ottawa being in the ORANGE/YELLOW/GREEN stage. Special events and tournaments continue to remain cancelled for 2020. *

UPI (Stage 1): Under Stage 1 of the provincial government's plan, UPI is allowed to re-open. OCUA set up a disc golf course that is available for use by members only (https://www.ocua.ca/Disc-Golf) and restarted its partnership with the Ultimate Park Electric Flyers.

UPI (Stage 2): Under Stage 2 of the provincial government's plan, UPI, as a private park, is allowed to re-open for team practices up to 10 people. OCUA set up a field rental system along with safety regulations and guidelines that is available for use by members only (https://www.ocua.ca/UPI-Rentals).

OCUA (Stage 3): Under Stage 3 of the provincial government's plan, OCUA is allowed to re-open for league play with a cap of 50 participants per league. OCUA has established additional protocols to increase general member safety (see here). All previous summer registrations will receive an account credit to use towards future league registration, special events, or swag. Account credits do not expire. Those that wish to receive a cash refund for a summer registration will need to email the league (refunds@ocua.ca) before August 31, 2020.

OCUA ('Stage 2.5'): The provincial government added new restrictions (link) to major cities in Ontario, including Ottawa. For a minimum of 28 days, team sports are not allowed to run games or scrimmages and are limited to training sessions only. The potential restart date for any OCUA league game is Sunday, November 8th. All fall registrants will receive a prorated refund based on their method of payment (ie cash refunds for credit card purchases).

OCUA (Colour Levels): The provincial government created a new framework (link) for Ontario public health units to follow. Under the orange/yellow/green stage, OCUA is permitted to offer league games and training programs.

OCUA is taking its direction from federal, provincial, and local health agencies. Below are helpful links:
