Evan began playing ultimate in 1993 in Toronto and hasn't stopped since. Moving to Victoria B.C in 1996 he played ultimate, went to school and enjoyed the west coast lifestyle. Toronto drew him back, for the formation of GOAT in 2002. After 9 years, including many successes, failures, and once in a lifetime moments it was time to move on. Known for long throws and holding the disc too long, his number was retired in 2010. Currently he coaches the Toronto RUSH (2013 AUDL Champions, 2014 2nd Place), Canadian National Champion, TORO (Boys U18 club team hailing from Toronto) and is the assistant coach of Canada's 2015 U23 National team

Her desire and commitment to Ultimate paid off once again in 2010, when she had the opportunity to play in the finals of the USAU club championships as a member of the Capitals. In addition to playing Ultimate, Carla dedicates much of her time to coaching at the high school and junior club levels. Her lifelong commitment to sport and coaching has been a valuable asset to the UltiCards team.

Nick began playing ultimate in 1993 in Toronto. He played 8 years in Toronto leagues before moving to Asia in 2002. Since then he has had the pleasure of playing and winning ultimate tournaments in Bali, Shanghai, Taiwan, Manilla, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Korea. He has been an active member of an expanding Asian ultimate scene and contributed to the growth of Ultimate in Taiwan, where he lives. His idea of a vacation is flying back to Toronto for a few months of summer league with good friends on his favorite team, REDI.






Britt Mercadante

Britt Mercadante

Britt started learning how to play Ultimate at Davidson University, where members of the team struggled to fix his awkward two-handed backhand throw. Upon graduating, he found himself in the same position as virtually every graduate - jobless with no real plan. So he packed the bags and relocated to Taiwan, where he's been living ever since. He's played in numerous tournaments in Asia for the past few years, and he co-founded a mixed team based in Taipei. When he's not playing Ultimate, watching Ultimate videos, or just generally thinking about Ultimate, he's, well, working? Sleeping? Who knows...
