  3. 2018 WJUC To Be Held In Waterloo, Ontario

    Uptown Waterloo Ontario

    The 2018 World Juniors Ultimate Championships will be held just outside of Toronto, Canada, in the city of Waterloo, according to a press release from the World Flying Disc Federation late last week.

    The tournament will be held from Sunday, August 19th to Saturday, August 25th, 2018.

    The Waterloo bid for the tournament got some press earlier this year when Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau offered his official support for the bid in a letter.

    The 2016 WJUC — held in Wroclaw, Poland — had a record 49 teams from 29 countries. The tournament’s move to North America is expected to limit attendance as travel costs spike for teams from European and Asian countries.

  10. USA Flatball College Mixed Champs To Experiment With 3:3 Gender Ratio

    usa flatballThe USA Flatball College Mixed Championships are returning this year on October 1-2, 2016. I wrote about the organization last year, but a little wrinkle in this year’s tournament caught my eye: they will be playing six on six (with a 3:3 gender ratio) on smaller fields.

    The idea of moving mixed ultimate to a 3:3 ratio has been discussed before as a way to correct a perceived imbalance in 4:3 play. The 6v6 game has even been tried, like in Washington DC’s advanced league. But this is a relatively high profile attempt to try a 3:3 ratio with a broad-based group of players. (more…)
