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

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.

Summer 2021, Tuesday (Monday) – Session 2

Game start time is 8:15. You may show up earlier than 8pm to warm up, but do not interfere with the group that has the field before us. Our reservation begins at 8pm.

League ratio is 5 men/2 women. Bring your own shirt in your team color and bring an alternate white. Green team, please avoid dark green when playing black. Soccer cleats (or other non-metal cleats) are appropriate if you have them, otherwise athletic shoes. Bring WATER or other drinks—it will be warm.

The Arizona Sidewinders are the first professional Ultimate team in the state of Arizona. As part of the Western Ultimate League (WUL), the Sidewinders want to foster growth within the sport and provide a way for all women to compete on a stage which showcases high-level, competitive Ultimate.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the WUL's inaugural season has been postponed until March of 2022 with a pre-seaon showcase, the WUL Winter Cup, later in 2021. In the meantime, watch Open Side, a video series featuring players from various WUL teams speaking in round-table fashion about a range of ultimate related topics. You might even see some players you know!

VOTS History Archive

Note from Katherine:

Not a lot of play going on at the moment, but that doesn't mean we can't yearn for the olden days...

Earlier in the year Kevin Hatch and Kody Lippincot gathered up some VOTS materials from various storage bins and started scanning and taking photos. I decided to take the opportunity to reorganize the league and New Year Fest archive pages. I'm also continuing to add other information (including more about Valley club teams) as I come across it. If you have any info or feedback on the pages, please, let me know.

The first bunch of 80s and 90s VOTS newsletters from Kevin are available on the new History Pages!
