Tournament Sanctioning Application

Before applying, please make sure to fully review all of the benefits and requirements for the tournament sanctioning program to ensure that you understand the program. Once you feel that tournament sanctioning is right for your event, you can apply for sanctioning approval by submitting your application and sanctioning fee. 

Leagues please apply through the USA Ultimate League Sanctioning program.

Other Events (hat tournaments, practices/tryouts, camps/clinics, pick-up games) please apply through the USA Ultimate Insurance Program.
