TripleCrownTour 500x500  
The Triple Crown Tour represents the highest level of competitive Ultimate in North America and features teams in three divisions: Men’s (est. 1979), Women’s (1983), and Mixed (1998). Teams are split across four tiered flights: Pro, Elite, Select, and Classic.  

The regular season consists of a series of summer USA Ultimate sanctioned tournaments, including featured events like the U.S. Open Championship and Flight specific events.  The post-season narrows over 700 teams down to 16 in each division to compete for the National Championship.
