Guidelines for Hosting a USA Ultimate Event 

It is the goal of USA Ultimate that its events set the standard for high quality Ultimate events both in the United States and throughout the world. The following set of guidelines serves both as a resource and an outline of expectations for event organizers who are hosting high school state tournaments, college conference and regional tournaments, and club sectional and regional tournaments. Note that the requirements and benefits vary depending on the type of event you are hosting. Event organizers will be working with a volunteer USA Ultimate coordinator to plan and manage these events.
 

 

Event organizers hosting USA Ultimate championships will be working directly with USA Ultimate headquarters staff to plan and manage those events, using specific guidelines laid out in the bid documents and contracts for those events.
