All events organized, owned and operated by USA Ultimate Affiliate organizations that are registered with USA Ultimate will be sanctioned, insured and managed by the same guidelines, requirements and standards as all USA Ultimate sanctioned events (with several benefit exceptions as noted below).*  Affiliate events are pre-approved without need to submit an application or a fee to set up sanctioning.  However, an event registration form is required (see Step 2 just below) so that USAU staff can set up, track and include the event under our insurance and reporting for credit to the Affiliate.

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

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

  • Leagues (see steps 1-3 for key details for Affiliate organizers),

  • Tournaments (see sections titled "Benefits" and also "Requirements" for key details for Affiliate organizers),

  • Insurance Program (includes training & development non-competition activities/events like practices/training/tryouts, pickups/scrimmages, clinics/camps, seminars/conferences/meetings, etc. as well as very casual competition like recreational 1-day hat tournaments; see sections titled "Benefits" and also "Requirements" for key details for Affiliate organizers).

STEP 2: Complete the appropriate online application, linked below, 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 participant/team/organizer communication & support. You will receive an email confirmation from a USAU staff program manager when your event is set up for insurance and registration in the online event management system as well as on the public event calendar.
