Team Canada Tryouts End — Les essais fermés terminent

3 Comments

Team Canada Open concluded tryouts this weekend after nearly twelve hours of demanding evaluations. Fifty athletes of exceptional skill from B.C., Alberta, Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic congregated at Jericho fields on Saturday morning, probably marking the first time so many great Canadian players met in such concentration since 2008. It was also especially fitting that this exercise took place at Jericho – the historical cradle of Vancouver ultimate. The weather was perfect for the occasion, with just enough wind and a brief sputtering of rain to keep throwers wary.

The Monkey Is Famous!

Comments Off on The Monkey Is Famous!

Ultimate Canada has officially announced the creation of its own Hall of Fame, and the inaugural class of inductees includes none other than Furious George himself.  Read about the Angry Monkey’s life and times  on the Ultimate Canada website.  A select few players can genuinely say they made Furious a name worth remembering, but all of us, then and now, have been honoured to take part in something much bigger than ourselves.   We strive to make ourselves worthy of the name.  When you look Furious in the face, there is something indescribably demanding in those angry eyes that makes you want to earn his respect.
