Durham Ultimate Club Summer Cohort League Information

When we return to play we will be following the Ontario Ultimate Return to play guidelines. For the full guidelines please click below. 

Ontario Ultimate - Return to Play (1).pdf

We will be returning to play with a recreational cohort and also a competitive cohort with 4 teams in each cohort. Each team will have a maximum of 12 players so that the total number of players will not exceed the Ministry of Health’s maximum of 50 persons. The teams will play each team twice for a total of 6 games and just to be safe you will play each team 2 weeks in a row. Players can be a part of at most one sport cohort of up to 50 people at a time. As an example you cannot play in this utlimate league plus also a hockey league. There will be no switching of groups as this would require a 2 week quarantine between games.  Substitute players will NOT be allowed.

Before you play you will need to complete a membership registration which will include 2 waivers to electronically sign and will cost $38.42. You will also be required to sign up for an app called Javelin which will be used to screen players for symptoms before coming to the game.

The team fee will be $150 per team payable by etransfer to kevin@durhamultimateclub.com. If a team decides to have 10 players this team fee would be split among the 10 players. Players would pay their captain by e-transfer or in person.

Everyone's responsibilities

  • Pay for your DUC membership ($38.42) by clicking on this link. During the registration for the membership you will have to sign off on 2 or more waivers. 
  • Tell your captain you have paid for your membership
  • Send your captain your portion of the team fee.
  • Sign up for the Javelin App once your captain sends you a link.
  • Print and sign the participant agreement.docx . Bring it to your first game and give it to your captain.
  • Print the Participant checklist.docx  and read it before each game. This file has helpful reminders. 

Captain’s responsibilities

  • Send $150 by etransfer to kevin@durhamultimateclub.com
  • Sign up for the Javelin Sports app and input the emails for all your players
  • At each game check that each player has completed the survey from home and then check them again yourself. This is very important as it will keep us all safe and also allow us to do contact tracing if necessary.
  • At each game set up cones in your endzone only.
  • Work the scoreboard
  • Set up your team on the DUC website and add players. Add players by going to team settings and clicking on select players. Then in the blue box, select add player to roster, the select the season as 2020. Type in each person's name and choose them to be put on the team. If you cannot find them in the list then they have either not bought their memberships or you are spelling their names incorrectly. Once you have added all your players select next. If they are returning players the system will detect that and choose their profile automatically otherwise it will create a new one. 
  • Ensure that all players have purchased their membership and are on your team roster before playing in any games. 
  • Ensure that players maintain proper social distancing both on and off the field
  • Count stalls or assign someone on their team to count stalls from the sidelines
  • Ensure that the disc is sanitized every few points.
  • Ensure that all garbage(wipes etc) is disposed of properly


Safety Rules

Prior to playing, players will be required to use an app to screen for covid-19 symptoms. This app, called javelin Sports Inc, will also help with contact tracing if needed. In order to increase the safety of all players, players are not allowed to participate if

  • They show any symptoms of covid-19
  • they have been in contact with anyone that is diagnosed with Covid-19 and or is suspected of having Covid-19
  • they are playing in any other sports league or are part of a cohort for any other club or program.
  • they have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days
  • they have not been abiding by the Ministry of health rule of having a social circle of 10 people


    Rule Modifications

  • Stalls are counted by someone on the sideline
  • Disc space is 2 meters
  • All checks are done by tapping the ground. If a check requires the defense to signal that they are ready before the disc comes back into play then the player should wait until the player says they are ready. An example of this would be after a time out or a call on the field.  For checks, when there has been no call, for example when you are putting the disc in play after a turn over or an out of bounds throw you do not need the defence to say they are ready. 
  • There should be no contact between players. Contact is a foul. Just be happy that we are playing and do everything you can to make the play without any contact. 
  • players should try to mark the same player (when possible)
  • Change and sanitize discs every point
  • Masks are not required but are fine to wear. Players wearing masks should avoid touching the front of the mask while playing and if they do they should sanitize their hands.
  • Substitute players, not on the team, are not allowed as this could increase the number of players beyond the allowed 50
  • Games are 90 minutes in length and there is no score cap (just like in indoor).
  • Half time occurs at the completion of a point after 40 minutes has expired.
  • The game ends 90 minutes after the scheduled start time.
  • No high fives
  • it is recommended that players play two points before subbing unless one of the points was extremely long.
