VOTS 2021 Return to Play Agreement (Updated 6/3/21)

(click to expand)

In order to protect our fellow members and guests, as well as to satisfy requirements for field usage, the Valley of the Sun Ultimate Association (VOTS) has adopted rules and guidelines relating to COVID-19. Following these rules and guidelines is a requirement to participate in VOTS events. Failure to adhere to them is grounds for removal from VOTS events.

  1. Attendees will self-screen for symptoms on the day of the VOTS event, prior to arrival, and will not attend if currently or previously symptomatic or tested positive for COVID-19 until meeting Home-Isolation-Guidance.
  2. Attendees will follow the Maricopa County Dept. of Public Health Quarantine Guidance for Household and Close Contacts including the provision for people not fully vaccinated who live in the same home or were in close contact (within 6 feet for longer than 15 minutes or physical contact) with someone with COVID-19 being asked not to attend for 14 days after last contact with the person with COVID-19.
  3. Anyone with symptoms or a positive COVID test are subject to those quarantine guidelines.
  4. People are considered fully vaccinated only 14 days after the final dose of a vaccine series.
  5. In order to protect children and other vulnerable populations, masks are still encouraged for unvaccinated individuals.
  6. In order to protect children and other vulnerable populations, social distancing should be maintained when possible. While on the same sideline, teams should continue to try to spread out as much as practical. Close team huddles should still be avoided. High fives, hugs and similar contact should still be avoided. Social gatherings before and after the game should still maintain social distancing.

New Year Fest XXXIX

Update 1/08/22: After meeting in a special session on Saturday 1/8, the Valley of the Sun Ultimate Association (VOTS) Board of Directors has voted to cancel the upcoming New Year Ultimate Fest tournament.

A number of factors played into the Board's decision. The ongoing spike of Omicron infections, including break-through cases; reports of significant infections at similar events; concerns about travel disruptions for out-of-state teams; possible COVID-related personnel disruptions to all teams; and the potential for field access to be restricted to only in-state players were all discussed. While the Board takes no pleasure in canceling the event, they felt that there was not enough confidence that the New Year Ultimate Fest could be held with the high level of competition and amenities that have been the tournament’s hallmark for 40 years.

The Board regrets the disruption to teams and players planning to attend this event. Tournament entry fees will be fully refunded.

VOTS looks forward to welcoming ultimate players from across the country back to New Year Fest in 2023.
