Yes, it is included in your registration fee and to ensure a low price for everyone in terms of ordering efficiency, it’s part of the deal. BUT, if your team is getting your own ones made, please consider donating to a charitable cause.
Anyone who wants to register for a league in progress must join the waitlist – players will be added once spots are available. Learn more about our waitlist here.
To us, you aren’t registered. You gotta pay to play. No holding spots.
There’s a lot of jargon and lingo in Ultimate, but thanks to the great gang at the Vancouver Ultimate League we have a great guide to terms and jargon!

It depends on the Leagues! For our Hat Leagues you can ONLY sign up solo or as a pair, and then for our Team Leagues it depends even more. Our Summer Team League means you can sign up in small groups, full teams, or solo … But Winter and Fall Team Leagues require a team. Learn more here!
We’re super friendly. Maybe even too friendly. Whether you’re new to the sport or have played in a past life, we’re welcoming to all – so check out our Beginner’s Guide to get Started.
Sorry, we only accept PayPal! You don’t need a visa or a specific account, there are a number of easy ways to pay with PayPal.
Simply put, no. But, for a good reason – we are a co-ed league and over the past number of years we have been driven to make MZU as gender-neutral as possible. Please take a look at the team and field compositions of our most popular leagues.

5 on 5 Leagues:
Cleats are recommended, but metal spikes are not allowed. Other than that, dress in athletic gear for the weather and be sure to bring some water.
Observers has been something we’ve thought about but it comes down to man power once again… with one qualified observer who isn’t here full-time (plus plays in our leagues!), it becomes tricky. For semi-final and final round games it is something we will reconsider for future seasons.
If you notice poor spirit and it can’t be dealt with on the field, the best way to deal with it is to submit a complaint to firstname.lastname@example.org – we can’t enforce spirit violations if we don’t know about them. And, as a reminder – observers do not get involved in enforcing spirit of the game, they are there to get involved in rule disputes and other similar issues. Further, when 2 players can sort out an issue themselves without any outside assistance, we truly feel that’s one of the bet ways to contribute to SOTG.
MZU Board members are constantly working to get better fields – we’re meeting with the City, field owners, making calls, sweet talking in every way we can. Seriously, it’s not an easy job. But, what we have found is that soccer (adult/youth) has first priority over fields, not only have they been around way longer, they are just bigger entities and seem to have more sway over booking.
Buying a field is simply not an option, we’re talking 100’s of thousands of buckeroos. And we simply do not have the cash or the volunteers to manage a field. We are able to keep summer costs low because we use cheap outdoor fields – using lit fields (KGV / Gushue) would increase the cost significantly and we like to keep one season very affordable.

Every season, we work hard to make the teams as even as possible, and while we do put a lot of weight into self-rankings, we also use our knowledge of players to ensure they are accurate. BUT, there are always dark horses, new players and chemistry that we can’t predict. Making X number of even teams is very very difficult. There will always be a team that wins most of their games and one that loses most.
In the past, we have tried to run a draft, but the last 2-3 times we did not get enough volunteers to step forward. Moving forward, we will reopen this possibility, but we need your help to make it happen!
