2024 Art Hawkins Great Canadian Ultimate FUNdraising Game

Registration is now open for the 2024 Art Hawkins Great Canadian Ultimate Game!

2024 Art Hawkins
In 2023 the VUL raised $5,000 to support the accessibility and development of Ultimate and Spirit of the Game in Canada with children, youth, and those with a disability, especially in economically disadvantaged communities.

In 2024 we are hoping to do even more.  Ultimate Canada has set up a Charitable Impact page for the VUL where you can donate yourself and share with your Ultimate Community for people who aren't able to attend the game itself.  We encourage you to share the Charitable Impact page with as many people as you can, as there will be prizes for the person who is able to raise the most money for this great charity.

The game will be played at Jericho E field on June 8th from 2:30pm to 4:30pm.

The VUL will then host an after party at nearby Hynes Irish Pub from 5pm to 7pm

Turn your love for Ultimate into an opportunity to raise FUNds for a great cause.

Register now!

About Art Hawkins


Art Hawkins was an influential and respected member of the VUL community for almost 20 years until his all too early passing in 2010.


Art started playing Ultimate in Vancouver in 1991 and was involved with more VUL teams as a player, coach or captain than can be named. Beyond the VUL, Art represented Canada at the 1999 and 2002 World Ultimate Club Championships and won Gold in the Master's Division at the 2000 Canadian Championships.


During the 2000s, Art's involvement with the sport off the field grew substantially. He was a VUL Board of Directors member and was named Executive Director of the VUL in 2008. As ED, he strengthened the league's clinic and mentoring programs and increased the focus on junior development.


Art strongly supported charities and created and ran the annual Elimination 8's tournament, which continues to generate funds for local Vancouver charities. He also worked with Ultimate Canada to build the Great Canadian Ultimate Game.


In 2011 Ultimate Canada honoured his memory by naming this day-long Game and celebration The Art Hawkins Great Canadian Ultimate Game.
