The history of ultimate in Kingston can be traced back to the early 1990s, when the Queen's University men's team, "Mothership Connection", was founded. Queen's teams continue to play a significant role in local ultimate. Mothership Connection and the Queen's Women's Team, "Paper Bag Princesses", regularly place in the top three at the Canadian University Ultimate Championships. Two development teams, "Superfly" (men) and "Storm" (women) are also competitive.
From the beginning, pick-up ultimate, not directly associated with Queen's, has also taken place, offering all Kingston residents the opportunity to play. In 1998, Joel Yearsley started the Kingston Summer Ultimate League, with four teams and forty players. Open to everyone, the league has grown exponentially since. In 2001, Joel started an indoor league from January to March that also continues.
