Nelson Ultimate thrilled after amazing season on the frisbee pitch
There is much to celebrate this year for the Nelson Ultimate Frisbee Association.
The club was happy to host over 150 people from 10 teams July 21-22nd at Disc Break 2012, the revival of the Nelson Ultimate tournament and received rave reviews from all teams that participated and look forward to organizing the tournament next year, and for many years to come.
Nelson Ultimate hopes to expand the tournament to include 16 teams to keep up with interest and align Disc Break 2013 with Nelson’s July Marketfest to show off Nelson in all its summer splendor.
Nelson’s competitive touring team, Nelson Homegrown, made some major gains this year doing very well on the summer tournament circuit.
Homegrown played five tournaments including Nanaimo, Kelowna, Kamloops and Vernon and reaching the finals in two tournaments only narrowly missing top prize in both cases.
The Canadian Ultimate Championships was held in Victoria, BC this August 16-19th and Homegrown represented Nelson in the Open (men’s) division finishing 15th with one point losses to Vancouver and Toronto teams and were the Spirit Champions for their division.
One final note of pride for Nelson Ultimate was the representation of three Nelson players on the Masters (over 33) winning team at the World Ultimate Frisbee Championships held this July in Sakai, Japan.
Congratulations to Adam Chouchinoff, Greg Jewitt, and Anthony Maley for winning a gold medal for Canada.
Currently, the Nelson Ultimate Frisbee Association is gearing up for our winter season. We play indoor Ultimate Monday evenings at 8 p.m. at Soccer Quest.
Nelson Ultimate is looking for players to commit to the full season so that we can boost our time slot and get a full two hours of play. Anyone interested in joining, please email nelsonultimatefrisbee.ca or go to soccerquest.ca to sign up. No experience necessary.
Co-ed Ultimate Frisbee is a great way to stay fit, meet new friends and have fun! See you on the field.
