All events organized, owned and operated by USA Ultimate Affiliate organizations are considered to be USA Ultimate sanctioned events and are managed by the same guidelines, requirements and standards as all USA Ultimate sanctioned events.*  Affiliate events are pre-approved without need to submit an application or fee to set up sanctioning.  However, an event registration form is required (see Step 2 just below).

Download or print this Checklist for Affiliate Event Organizers (CLICK HERE).

STEP 1: The primary organizer for each event must read through the sanctioning requirements for the appropriate event type.  The requirements can be found on the following pages:

  • Leagues (see steps 1-3),

  • Tournaments (see sections titled "Benefits" and also "Requirements"),

  • Insurance Program (includes hat tournaments, practices/training/tryouts, pickups/scrimmages, clinics, camps, confernces, etc.; see sections titled "Benefits" and also "Requirements").

STEP 2: Complete the online Application at least 15 business days (typically, 3 weeks) in ADVANCE of the event so that USAU staff can set it up appropriately to ensure adequate insurance, tracking, reporting, and support. You will receive an email confirmation from the USAU staff affiliate manager when your event has been added to the online event management system and event calendar.
