BEGINNER AND INTERMEDIATE CLINIC SERIES
Have you been looking to take your game to the next level? Or are you new to the game and want to give it a try? Well, TUC has what you’re looking for with its 5 Week Clinic Series! TUC will be offering 2 separate levels of Clinic Leagues, Beginner's and Intermediate.
The second round of the 5 week clinic series have begun and there are still spaces available. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get registered.
The TUC Clinic Leagues runs on Monday evenings from 6:30 PM to dusk at Sir Winston Churchill Park. This current session will run until August 1st, with the next 5 week session beginning August 8th.
You will get expert instructions on improving your skills, basic team concepts, zones (offence & defense), strategies, rules and much more. Each week will provide a clinic on a specific topic for the first hour, which will then be followed by a scrimmage to practice those concepts.
Check out the website for information on the 5 week clinic series.

Stay positive, be respectful, and uphold the ideals of spirit of the game, and you just might get awarded for it!
SUMMER LEAGUE PLAYOFF SUB RULES
With Summer League Playoffs just a few months away, please find attached the TUC Summer Playoff Sub Policy, which we will be instituting again this September for the TUC Summer Playoffs.
This policy was carefully crafted by the Operations Committee of the TUC Board of Directors and its intention is to balance the need for substitute players with team rosters that are representative of league play. We are hopeful that this policy will encourage participation as well as quell some of the issues we have had with respect to roster disputes. As we employ the policy this September, we will be looking for ways to improve it for the future.
We ask that you be proactive in reviewing & understanding the implications of this Policy for your team - and feel free to review & distribute to your team members.

SPIRIT COMMITTEE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS
Another summer of TUC Ultimate is under way, and that means another summer of playing with Spirit! Last month featured our third annual Spirit Hat Tournament which was arguably the best one yet, featuring a great turn out, fun and spirited games and some beautiful weather. The Spirit scores for the first season are all wrapped up and I look forward to being able to personally contact our best performers to thank them for their efforts.
We’re not resting our on our laurels however; TUC is continuing to look for ways to develop Spirit of the Game at all levels in all of our leagues, and to do that we need your help. The Spirit Committee is looking for volunteers who can contribute an hour two each month to help plan, coordinate and deliver on our initiatives for SOTG. If you’re interested (or feel like voluntelling someone) please contact email@example.com for more information.
