Colorado Springs, Colo. (April 8, 2015) – USA Ultimate, the national governing body for the sport of ultimate in the United States, announced today official affiliation with the Indiana Ultimate Foundation (IUF). IUF is the most recent addition to USA Ultimate’s Affiliate Program.

The Indiana Ultimate Foundation joins 11 other local leagues as official USA Ultimate Affiliates: Albany Ultimate Disc Association, Atlanta Flying Disc Club Juniors, Columbus Ultimate Disc Association, Connecticut Ultimate Club, DiscNY, Jacksonville Ultimate League, Maine Ultimate, Minnesota Youth Ultimate, Missoula Ultimate Federation, Neuqua Valley Ultimate and Ultimate Players League of Austin. As part of the agreement, these leagues receive additional resources and support from USA Ultimate designed to assist with the expansion and promotion of grassroots programs and serve local players.

USA Ultimate’s League Affiliate Program was launched two years ago and represents a significant component of the organization’s six-year strategic plan, which places an emphasis on growing youth, college and league ultimate. It is also a part of USA Ultimate’s ongoing efforts to create a larger, stronger local ultimate infrastructure around the United States.


"We at the IUF are extremely excited about the opportunity to team up with USA Ultimate to facilitate the growth and development of the great sport of ultimate in Indiana through the Affiliate Program," said Indiana Ultimate Foundation President John Rempel. "This is an outstanding opportunity for us to develop new and diverse programs and events for all ages, offer guidance and assistance to local ultimate organizations and continue to support the existing leagues, clubs and events that

are already in place. Youth ultimate in Indiana has been experiencing dramatic growth in talent and numbers, and we are certain that this relationship will help us foster positive and continued growth."

USA Ultimate-affiliated leagues can benefit from various materials and programs that assist with education, instruction and training initiatives, as well as several streams of financial support. Affiliated leagues receive access to USA Ultimate’s Learn to Play Program, as well as curricula designed for physical education in a classroom setting, coaching education and observer certification. USA Ultimate also assists affiliates with the facilitation of community recreation programs, youth camps and college program outreach.

Financial resources are available to USA Ultimate-affiliated leagues in the form of grants, discounts and rebate dollars, while leagues can also benefit from an insurance program covering events, players, directors and officers.

While each league remains a separate and distinct entity that exists to serve its constituents, elects a board of directors and manages affairs under its own set of bylaw, USA Ultimate also maintains a close programmatic and strategic relationship with its affiliates.
