Nelson Ultimate puts wrap on season

There was much to celebrate this year for the Nelson Ultimate Frisbee Association.

There was much to celebrate this year for the Nelson Ultimate Frisbee Association.

The association was happy to host more than 150 people from 10 teams in late July at Disc Break 2012, the revival of the Nelson Ultimate tournament. They received rave reviews from all teams that participated and look forward to organizing the tournament next year, and for many years to come. Organizers hope to expand the tournament to include 16 teams to keep up with interest and align Disc Break 2013 with Nelson’s July Marketfest to show off Nelson in all its summer splendor.

Nelson’s competitive touring team — Nelson Homegrown — made some major gains this year, doing very well on the summer tournament circuit. Homegrown played five tournaments including Nanaimo, Kelowna, Kamloops and Vernon, reaching the finals in two tournaments, and only narrowly missing top prize in both cases.

The Canadian Ultimate Championships were held in Victoria in mid-August and  Homegrown represented Nelson in the Open (men’s) division, finishing 15th with one-point losses to Vancouver and Toronto teams and were the Spirit Champions for their division.

One final note of pride for Nelson Ultimate was the representation of three Nelson players on the Masters (over 33) winning team at the World Ultimate Frisbee Championships held this July in Sakai, Japan. Congratulations to Adam Chouchinoff, Greg Jewitt and Anthony Maley for winning a gold medal for Canada.

Currently, the Nelson Ultimate Frisbee Association is gearing up for their winter season. They play indoor Ultimate Monday evenings at 8 p.m. at Soccer Quest on Cedar Street.

They are looking for players to commit to the full season so that they can boost their time slot and get a full two hours of play. If you are interested in joining, email nelsonultimatefrisbee@gmail.com or go to soccerquest.ca to sign up. No experience necessary. Co-ed Ultimate Frisbee is a great way to stay fit, meet new friends and have fun.
