Manitoba Organization of Disc Sports (MODS) Junior programs have a long-standing relationship with schools in Winnipeg and across Manitoba. MODS is affiliated with the Manitoba High School Athletic Association (MHSAA) as a demonstration sport. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we have been unable to run any school based programs since the fall of 2019.
MODS creates spring leagues for our middle school and high school programs while offering clinics and jamborees for grade schools. The spring season culminates in May with the Middle School and High School Provincial Championships sponsored by Independent Jewellers of Winnipeg. Our fall high school programming is one month leading into the prestigious SJR Hold Back the Snow tournament in October.
MODS school programs include a Spring League for Middle School and High School and Fall High School League. All school teams have opportunities to participate in tournaments throughout the year. Each year, MODS runs a free Disc-overy event to help schools keep participation costs down and encourage athletic development. In addition, MODS is proud to sponsor an annual, international school-based tournament hosted by St. John’s Ravenscourt School. The weekend after May long is our High School and Middle School Provincial Championships, which now attract thousands of people from across the province.
Our best coaches — at your school! The MODS School Clinic brings an ultimate coach to your school for an entire day of ultimate training.
MODS coaches will arrive at 8:30 a.m. and work with your phys-ed instructors to teach the game of ultimate to students throughout each class that day. Students will learn about self-officiation and Spirit of the Game (our most important rule), and participate in a series of drills and mini games to help learn basic concepts and fundamentals.
At the end of the day, MODS coaches offer a 90-minute adult clinic for any teachers or parents wanting to learn about the game or become introductory level coaches. This gives your school the power to retain coaches and add ultimate to your programming and extra-curricular experiences.
Training can occur in your gymnasium or outside, if weather permits.
One-day clinic: $225
The clinic includes use of discs and pylons for the day only.
Official discs and pylons can be purchased through MODS at a special school rate.
Schools that enter an ultimate team that year will also be able to participate in the free MODS Spring Disc-overy event in May.
