Nelson Ultimate has already had a busy start to the season with their off season play at Soccer Quest on Mondays nights translating to a tournament victory in Kelowna at the end of March.

The victory gave the men’s team the overall BC Winter Ultimate Championship title.

Homegrown won a close final matchup against the Vernon team, who featured two players from the Vancouver Nighthawks, the professional team from Major League Ultimate based out of Vancouver.

Earlier in the tourney, the Nelson squad lost to the Nighthawks in a hotly contested game.

With a first place finish in Kelowna and a second place finish in the Richmond tournament, back in January, Homegrown finished the three tournament series with the overall highest point total despite having missed the middle tournament of the series in Victoria.

Homegirl, Nelson’s women’s team, finished second at the Kelowna tournament losing to the winners of the overall title for the series, Where’s My Phyr?, from Vancouver.

Nelson Ultimate also sent four players to play four-on-four on the beach at the 12th annual Boracay Open, March 14 to 16 in the Philippines.

The Nelson players played on a Vancouver based team and finished third in the B division with a 5-2 record overall. Nelson Ultimate is also very excited to announce the official launch of Junior Ultimate in Nelson this year with a youth team starting practices last week at L.V. Rogers with plans to attend the provincial tournament later this spring with players from teams in Kaslo, Mt. Sentinel and Salmo participating.

All students are invited to come check out a practice to see if Ultimate is a fit for them.
