Carleton Ravens Men’s Lacrosse The Carleton University Ravens Lacrosse Club was formed in 1986 to play in the first Ontario University Field Lacrosse Association spring tournament at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. The Ravens now compete in the Canadian University Field Lacrosse Association (CUFLA). CUFLA is an emerging league and has many opportunities for young players. Playing at Carleton offers our players an opportunity to receive top quality education while playing high level lacrosse. More and more top quality players, including some NLL players, enter the league each year, enhancing the competition.

While winning is important to every competitive athlete; we are concerned with the development of the student as a whole, and not solely as a lacrosse player. We are committed to fostering a sense of discipline and dedication both on the field and in the classroom. We take pride in seeing our players develop and excel on the field and succeed in their academic pursuits. There has been a great heritage of successful lacrosse players at Carleton. Our Alumni include players who went on to professional lacrosse in the NLL: Jason Tasse (Ottawa Rebel), Shaydon Santos (San Jose Stealth), Kevin Dostie (Calgary Roughnecks and Buffalo Bandits), and Ty Logan (New England Blackwolves)

The club offers its members a seamless year of lacrosse; an opportunity to play Canada’s official national summer sport from September to April. Our pre-season begins with a training camp one week before classes begin in late August and then our CUFLA season commences the first weekend of September. The team practices three evenings per week, with games on weekends. We play 10 conference games against other teams in the East division, with an extra playoff game at the end of the season to qualify for the Baggataway Cup Championship. The Baggataway Cup consists of the top 6 teams in the league.playing cross-divisional elimination games in a weekend tournament until a National champion is crowned. The Club then organizes a year-end banquet, where we recognize the outstanding players on the team. On Friday nights from mid-November to March, the team hosts a non-contact league for the lacrosse community and Carleton student body in the Carleton Field house.
Carleton Ravens Men’s Ultimate Team The Men’s Ultimate Frisbee program consists of two teams who share the same practice and tournament schedules. One team (A) is highly competitive, while the other (B) focuses on teaching the game and developing its players to hopefully advance onto the A team eventually. Both teams are committed to demonstrating the spirit of sportsmanship while putting their best efforts forward during practices and games.

The game of Ultimate is highly inclusive, we welcome EVERYONE to attend our tryouts regardless of experience level, some of our most talented current players joined us with little to no experience at all. Follow our social media (@ravensultimate) to stay up to date on our tryout information or to ask any questions. We look forward to seeing you on the field!

As this program is a competitive club, we ask our members to commit to two practices a week, 6 tournaments throughout the school year and some (minimal) finances to cover your uniform and team fees. Though it may seem like a large commitment, we truly believe the experience of being part of something at Carleton makes the University experience incredibly more enjoyable. The bonds and friendships you can create from being on a team might just last the rest of your life.

Part of our program’s goal is to not only attract new players to our teams, but also introduce them to the greater Ultimate Frisbee community. This sport is growing extremely fast and can be found at a recreational level in almost any City or Town. We hope that our players fall in love with the sport as we have and encourage them to play recreational or competitively outside of Carleton. Locally, the Ottawa-Carleton Ultimate Association (OCUA) offers numerous opportunities that many of our players participate in. Some are so involved in the Ultimate Community they volunteer at tournaments or youth engagement events.

Somali Education Fund (SEF) The Somali Education Fund (SEF) is an organization of students and/or young people who have come together to make education more accessible for youth in Somalia. We envision a future in which Somali youth can pursue their academic goals without the limitations of financial constraints. We are aware that the path to achieving this vision is long and difficult but every journey begins with a single step. This is ours.

The SEF has connected with a school in Mogadishu which has found 10 children who are especially disadvantaged. Each of these children has lost either one or both of their parents and are being cared for by relatives who struggle to secure basic necessities. Our goal is to support these children until they graduate so that they will be able to support their families in the future and pass on the skills they acquire to the next generation. Our long-term goal is to create an international network of students so that we can aid more children in different cities across the Horn of Africa.
