2023-24 Winter Adult Leagues

We are pleased to continue to offer 6 NIGHTS of Adult Ultimate during the winter months. Winter Ultimate is a very popular season amongst our OCUA members and we look forward to another exciting and memorable winter season. 

There are limited spots, so please register early to ensure you get the league and night of your choice.  Once you register, your spot will be held temporarily for 48 hours to give you enough time to complete payment which will be marked as 'paid' in your registration history, indicating you are fully registered for that league.  We will be managing an active waitlist for all leagues, so even if the league you are interested in is full, complete the registration to be placed on the waitlist.  If you have other questions, please email usl

We know that OCUA members have been (patiently) waiting for the announcement of Winter leagues – this year we have faced a number of factors that have caused a delay in our winter planning – so we thank you for your understanding.

  • A long-running winter league location, Algonquin College, has reallocated their weekly evening times to their internal programs and sports teams. Due to this reallocation, OCUA has lost over 350 hours of weeknight dome time. While every effort was made to secure dome time at alternative locations, we were not able to book enough time to make up for all the lost time.
  • Over 40 hours of dome time at Ben Franklin was loss to facility stakeholder groups - the loss of those hours combined with loss of Algonquin College dome hours some leagues have been reallocated, moved or determined to not be running for the 2023-24 season.
  • Additionally, we have not received our field contract from Carleton University yet. We are hopeful that we will receive our historical allocation; however, leagues and programs scheduled for that location are not yet 100% confirmed. We are sharing the details of the leagues planned for this location, as we have every intent to run these leagues.

Due to the above, there are a number of changes to the OCUA Winter League lineup; please read below to know what to expect!

For full information on each league, select Winter league you are interested in from the table below - click the name of the league to be taken to the League information page.

Don't forget, indoor (Winter) Ultimate is played by a different set of rules! Brush up on the Winter Ultimate rule variations here

Ottawa Junior teams make their mark at Nationals!

Ottawa's Junior Competitive Ultimate Program (OJCUP for short), recently competed at the 2023 Junior Canadian Ultimate Championships in Surrey, BC and in just (3) short days showed the rest of Canada what Ottawa Ultimate is all about! 

In total, (5) OJCUP teams competed - Wicked West, Wicked East, Ignite, Scorch & Blaze - at the (3-day) national event, and OCUA is incredibly proud of how all five teams represented the Ottawa Ultimate community. While all Ottawa teams exemplify Spirit of the Game, a special shoutout goes to Blaze who were awarded the Junior Open Spirit Title. 

Finishing the tournament with an impressive 5-2 record, Wicked West captured the silver medal - a record-setting result for the Junior Women's program. 

On the Open side, Ignite finished the 2023 national run with a 4-3 record, winning the bronze medal with a universal point victory over Vancouver's Vortex.

Congratulations to all five teams - the future is bright for Ottawa Ultimate!
