Winnipeg Youth Ultimate League Mission: The Manitoba Organization of Disc Sports supports our youth development and growth through school programs and individual programs. This dual stream acts as both an entry point for new players and as development for our Provincial teams and affords those in established school programs a chance to learn from new instructors and those from schools without programs a chance to learn about the sport of ultimate. The aim of this program is to provide a development pathway for all junior aged athletes.
What is WYUL HS League? This is an initiative to deliver team play opportunities over the fall and winter. Players sign up as individuals and are assigned to one of four teams. Each week players warm up with their teams and do a short drill before playing a game. Each team has an experienced WYUL coach (many of these coaches are part of our Team Manitoba program). This league is geared towards older and more experienced HS aged players. 14 & 15 year old players with limited or no experience should look at the WYUL 12-15 program.
FORMAT: The 10-week winter program offers 60 minute sessions run indoors at WSF North (Leila/McPhillips) Soccer Complex on Sunday nights.
Goals and Objectives: MODS sees WYUL as the vehicle to grow our junior participation. Our mid term goals would be to expand participation to the point that we can look at additional age categories, regionalized teams and multiple divisions. WYUL HS League sees players placed on 1 of 4 teams that play games in a league environment. Each team will have an experienced and record checked coach.
"SPIRIT OF THE GAME": Ultimate is unique in that it is a self officiated sport. All calls are made by the players on the field, sportsmanship, fair play, respect for your opponents and teammates and conflict resolution are all keys to the sport. Parents are reminded that calls can't be made by spectators or players / coaches on the sidelines. Please keep your interactions respectful and fun. Ultimate is a great game and youth players have a lot to gain by playing in this inclusive and supportive atmosphere.
LTAD: MODS is following the concepts of "Long Term Athlete Development", Sport Canada supports this model which is geared towards age appropriate activities for athletes. MODS will use a few junior specific rules to encourage more skill development. Games at times will be played 5 on 5 (4 on 4 if numbers require) to increase the amount of touches for each participant. Reduced field sizes and a "no zone" rule will also be in place. The LTAD module for this age of physical literacy is Learn to Play.
