EUPA Gender Inclusion Policy

Since 2001, the Edmonton Ultimate Players Association (EUPA) has promoted the highest quality brand of Ultimate that encourages competitive, safe, firmly rooted in the philosophy of Spirit of the Game*. Over that time, EUPA has adapted its programming to reflect a variety of changes in an effort to become more inclusive.

EUPA is exceptionally proud of its history of building an inclusive Ultimate community in Edmonton.

We believe:

  1. The opportunity for people of all genders to play together in a recreational sport environment is important because it leads to respect between EUPA community members both on and off the field.

  2. Being gender inclusive means respecting the right of all individuals to identify their own gender.

We commit to:

  1. Supporting  inclusive environments that respect every player’s body and gender autonomy.

  2. Using gender inclusive language in EUPA communications.

  3. Advocating for gender inclusive language at the provincial/national level.

  4. Furthering the inclusion of all genders in society in accordance with the Alberta Human Rights Act and the Canadian Human Rights Act both of which prohibit the discrimination on the grounds of gender identity and gender expression.

  5. Reviewing this policy as required and encourages members to send feedback to the Community Committee.
