ABOUT THE HERD

GOAT is a Toronto-based open club team that will be competing in its 16th season in 2017. Attracting players from across Canada, GOAT carries a roster of approximately 28-32 elite level players.



 

GOAT was formed in 2002 to build a long-lasting ultimate program competing at the highest levels of the sport in Canada and the United States. Originally comprising top players from Toronto and Ottawa, GOAT now draws its core numbers from Toronto. Despite the vast infusion of new blood in 2005, GOAT did not skip a beat - continuing to achieve solid results over the course of the season.



Always competitive and striving to improve, GOAT is also committed to developing the depth and skills of up-and-coming players in Toronto and Eastern Canada. With a solid core of players and strong connections to other Toronto teams and the Canadian University scene, GOAT is poised to continue its success in the years to come.



 

Since its inception, GOAT has achieved a high degree of success on the field, beginning with a Canadian Championship title in 2002, 2006 and most recently in 2015. GOAT has appeared in the Canadian Ultimate Championship finals in 2003, 2005, 2007, and 2011 as well as numerous wins at various Eastern Canadian tournaments.



South of the border, GOAT has also proven competitive with finalist appearances at what is now the Chicago Heavyweight Championships (2003 & 2005); semi-finalist showings at the Boston Invitational (2003 & 2005); qualifying for numerous USA Ultimate Club Championships (finishing top 4 in 2007 & 2015).
