STC Honours Athletes at Canadian Ultimate Championships

30.08.2017


The Saskatoon Tribal Council’s Vice Chief Mark Arcand gave the closing remarks at the 2017 Canadian Ultimate Championships. Over 650 athletes from across Canada participated in the tournament. The Canadian Ultimate Championships (CUC) Series is a series of provincial and national tournaments geared toward Ultimate teams. The CUC series takes place every summer with teams from across the country competing to represent at the Canadian Ultimate Championships. Teams must qualify through Regional Events. There are seven divisions to compete in: junior open and junior women, open, women, mixed, masters and women's masters.

The first Canadian Ultimate Championships were held in 1987 in Ottawa, Ontario. As the event continued to grow, divisions have been separated to create their own unique tournaments. In 2013, the Junior Open and Junior Women’s divisions were separated from the adult divisions. The medals they handed out acknowledged Treaty 6 territory and the group in this picture from Toronto Union donated the discs they used in the competitions to the White Buffalo Youth Lodge.
