USA Ultimate is committed to growing the sport of ultimate around the country by facilitating the delivery of ultimate events & programs to absolutely anyone that wants to play. We believe that locally-focused disc organizations, especially those committed to growing youth ultimate, are positioned to make the greatest impact. We welcome all interested local disc organizations who run at least 2 events per year to get in touch or apply today.
Affiliates work in partnership with the national headquarters staff to provide programs and services to players and to operate events within their local geographic areas. While USA Ultimate maintains a close, programmatic and strategic relationship with affiliates, each affiliate remains a legally distinct and independent corporation that serves their local community, elects board members, and manages affairs per their own bylaws.
