MODS Fall School Programing and Updates!

Fall School Programming 2019

As fall school ultimate teams and programs come together for the start of the new school year, it is also time to start planning the informal beggining to the school ultimate calendar for 2019/20! Please take a look below for quick hits on information surounding MODS and partner programs for school teams and juniors. There are also links to take you to program pages where you can learn more about school programs and also register for them directly. Please remember if you ever have any questions about junior or school programs, you can reach our Operations Director for support when ever you need!

High School Fall League - The high school fall league plays on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting the week of September 24th, 2019. Games are played at 4:30pm at Assiniboine Park or the host schools fields. Cost per team is a MODS membership for your athletes and a team fee of $94.50. You can register for the fall high school league here!

*** Please remember, any schools that can host games (and don't need MODS to schedule them at another venue/school), get their fee waived for one team!

Free High School Tournament *Fall Discovery* - This tournament is hosted by MODS for free at our new fields located at Assiniboine Park. This tournament does not have a playoff format and only exists to promote spirit and development for junior teams. To register, please click on the link or email Corey.

Paid International Middle & High School Tournament *SJR Presents Hold Back the Snow 2019* - Hold Back the Snow is the annual SJR Fall Ultimate tournament which brings teams from outside the province and country to Winnipeg to battle it out for Ultimate Supremacy and bragging rights. To register for Hold Back the Snow, please visit our event information page here or email the head of athletics at the school, Mr Dean Wright.

For those parents, athletes and families not of high school age or who don't have high school ultimate programs, please take at look at our Winnipeg Youth Ultimate Leagues (WYUL) which are indoors for the fall session (end of October to mid January) and winter session (mid January to April). We take in athletes for 9-11 year olds, 12-15 year olds and offer a 15+ plus program focused on playing.

Changes for the 2020 Spring Season - Respect in Sport Mandatory for All School Ultimate Coaches of all Levels

With our Sport Manitoba partnership as well as our partnership with the Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association, MODS will begin working with schools, administrators and coaches this fall and winter to ensure that all coaches and school programs have completed the Respect in Sport program before the start of the 2020 season next April.

The Respect in Sport online module (RIS) is a teaching tool for coaches to complete as part of their coaching development and training. The program is endorsed at the provincial level through Sport Manitoba, the Coaching Association of Canada and Sport Canada and will be a mandatory requirement for all coaches starting next spring.

The online module is free in Manitoba and can be accessed through Sport Manitoba online (here). MODS will work with Coaching Manitoba starting in February 2020 to maintain an updated list of those who have passed and completed the course and are available and secure to coach within our school programs and junior programs moving forward.

Please Note - For those who have completed the course for another sport, you can access your profile and add ultimate (disc sports) to your profile without having to retake the course.

Please Note - If it has been a while since you completed your course online, please revisit your profile to make sure your accreditation is still valid as all coaches will need to re-certify every 5 years to keep their profile and RIS up to date and current.

For questions about Respect in Sport heading into next year or with your module online - please reach out to the Business and Sport Development Director at MODS.
