Twin Cities Ultimate League (TCUL) offers a number of different leagues, tournaments, events, and competitions throughout the year. The following provides an overview of the various rules, best practices, and tenets of play for our leagues. These should apply to all leagues/games/events that TCUL puts on, with any specific modifications per league called out specifically.
If the games have not previously been cancelled and you see lightning at the fields, stop playing and go to your cars for 30 minutes before resuming play. Every time you see lighting the 30-minute clock resets. If it gets to the point where you will have no chance to get a reasonable length game played before the game's allotted time or before sunset, then games will be cancelled at that point. Board members may utilize airhorns to alert players to lightning postponements or cancellations. When in doubt, check the chat in the SportsEngine app or the TCUL Facebook page for the most up to date information on game cancellations, either due to decisions made by the National Sports Center, the TCUL Board, or other venues where TCUL events are taking place. The TCUL Board also communicates to Captains actively through the SportsEngine app.
This is a BIG deal – dangerous play is not welcome in any of our programming.
The lost & found treasure chest gets very large each season, and most of it goes unclaimed. The league will send out a communication to Captains via SportsEngine periodically with a list of lost & found items. If you lose an item, please notify your Captain or email the TCUL Board at TwinCitiesUltimate@gmail.com. After two weeks, lost & found items will be donated to charity, added to the lost & found curator’s assets, or discarded properly.
Food is allowed on the fields but alcohol and all forms of recreational drugs are prohibited by various city ordinances. Beyond any legal ramifications encountered from players caught using alcohol or drugs on the fields, TCUL could get banned from renting fields and/or lose its liability insurance.
There are many bars in Blaine, St. Paul and Minneapolis that can cater to your needs, including Invictus Brewing Company or Brick's (Blaine) and Carbone's at the intersection of Cedar Ave. and Minnehaha Parkway. Teams interested in post-game socializing are encouraged to frequent those establishments; do not bring the party to the fields.
