***2018 O4UC Rules Clarification***
With Western Sectionals starting tomorrow to kick off the O4UC series, here are some clarifications of rules. Good luck to all teams and we will see you on the field!
Ontario Ultimate will follow the Ultimate Canada rules for the 4v4 championships linked below with the following adjustments to account for Sectionals.
Ultimate Canada C4UC 2016 rules
2018 Ultimate Canada C4UC Roster Rules Changes
Out of province rostered players
Players will prove residency within the province of Ontario in accordance to Ultimate Canada’s residency rules with the exception of 2 players per team whom can reside from outside of Ontario.
Ontario Ultimate will validate and approve each team’s roster no later than the Friday before each Sectional tournament.
Team Size Maximum
C4UC states that teams cannot exceed 12 rostered players, teams must state which 12 players are their primary players that will be heading to C4UC and which will be considered alternatives. Teams over 12 rostered players at the sectionals cutoff will need to confirm these rosters with Ontario Ultimate 1 week prior to O4UC.
Please refer to the Ultimate Canada’s Alternatives Rule to ensure all rules are covered for C4UC.
Roster Changes Deadline
Rosters need to be submitted before sectionals start. After Sectionals only 2 roster changes (additions/substitutions) will be permitted.
Based on Ultimate Canada’s bid allocation Ontario is guaranteed 2 Province bids
Disagreements and Arbitration
Disagreements will be handled by the onsite Tournament Director for day of issues and further escalation can be taken to either the Ontario Ultimate Competition Director or President.
Unfortunately Western Sectionals conflicts with Bonne Année this year, and some teams have become concerned about missing one or the other tournament. This will not be the case!
If you are a team wanting to play both tournaments, and are in the Western district for sectionals, Ontario Ultimate is adjusting bid allocations so you (western teams) can play in the Southern Ontario Sectionals to maintain your chance to move to Regionals.
If your team is in this situation please let us know at: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will need to know advance so adjustments can be made!
This year Ontario Ultimate is excited to be working with Ultimate Experience (UE) to be bringing you O4UC!
This is the 4th Canadian 4v4 Ultimate Championship (C4UC) and every year Ontario has grown in the number of participants. Last year Ontario had 16 teams participate, which was a 50% increase from the previous year’s 12 teams.
Having a sectionals offers more opportunity for teams to find their true standing amongst competition and allows regionals to have a more manageable schedule as the 4v4 scene develops in Ontario.
