Anyone who plays in the VUL will tell you that 5-on-5 ultimate is the place to be right now – smaller fields, shorter games, and smaller rosters, but certainly tons of fun! This form of Ultimate is typically played on fields that are around 1/2 the size of a normal Ultimate field and feature continuous play and non-stop sub on the fly action.
With the popularity of 5-on-5 play in leagues growing, it was just a matter of time until the tournaments starting coming – BC now has 4 different 5-on-5 events happening between March and May:
- The VUL and BC Ultimate are hosting the second-annual Spring Equinox, in Vancouver’s Trillium Park on March 18 & 19, 2017. Tournament and registration information can be found HERE.
- Juniors are always ahead of the curve – the 2017 BC Junior 5-on-5 Championships have been running annually since 2010 and this year’s tournament will take place on April 15th at Empire Field on the Vancouver/Burnaby border. Email Ed Burnet for information.
- Live in Interior BC? The 2017 Kamloops Legacy Performance Games will include 5-on-5 ultimate on April 22 & 23. See information HERE.
- New this year – the first-ever Victoria 5-on-5 Ultimate Extravaganza takes place on May 20 & 21, conveniently filling in for the cancelled Whistler 5-on-5 tournament. See tournament information HERE.
Whether you’re a VUL 5-on-5 team or just a group of players looking to try 5-on-5 ultimate for the first time, register today for one of the several awesome events happening this spring!
