FOREWORD


Ultimate continues to gain popularity in Canada as word spreads about this easy to learn sport that challenges players to throw, catch, run and jump in order to move a disc down the field. Its popularity has also come from the lack of referees and the importance of Spirit of the Game (SOTG) – a base of values demonstrated by players in order to preserve the integrity of the sport.


On the international stage, our Canadian athletes have demonstrated their passion and dedication to the sport by winning multiple world championships and traveling around the world to participate in tournaments and programs.


The advent of Canadian Sport for Life and its Long-term Athlete Development (LTAD) model creates an excellent opportunity for our nation to define a pathway and develop programs to support our current and future athletes. As an Ultimate community we are fortunate to learn from the broader sport community as we develop our blueprint for the future of Ultimate in Canada.


In developing our LTAD, the advisory committee worked hard to ensure that it was true to the goals of giving every athlete and participant the best opportunity for their own excellence and enjoyment within the sport. They also aimed to highlight and integrate SOTG as an integral part of our athlete’s development, regardless of their age or stage of development. By reflecting the importance of SOTG in our LTAD and National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) we aim to preserve the culture and values that have made our sport so successful today.
