One of the top Ultimate competitions in Canada is coming to Saskatoon! For the first time in history, Saskatoon will host the Canadian Ultimate Mixed Division Championship on August 24-28, 2017. The event will take place at Forest Park and the SaskTel Sports Centre, with the championship game being played Saskatoon Minor Football Field in the Gordie Howe Sports Complex.

Over 500 athletes are expected to compete in the event including local favourite, the Saskatoon Bunny Thugs, who finished third at nationals in 2015, and are ranked first going into this years' competition.

The highest caliber of competition is expected as 2017 is a qualifying year for the 2018 World Ultimate Club Championships.

The local organizing committee wants to thank the City of Saskatoon, Tourism Saskatoon, the Saskatoon Ultimate Disc Sports Society, and the local Ultimate community for their ongoing support for this event.
