Ultimate Frisbee is a high energy, non-contact team sport. It combines elements of many different sports including soccer, basketball, and football. Ultimate is played on a rectangular shaped field with end zones shaped like football end zones. Each team consists of seven players. The disc is passed from teammate to teammate until somebody catches the disc in the end zone for a score.
The Valley of the Sun Ultimate Association (VOTS) organizes adult leagues (18 and up, ages 16-17 with parental waiver) with two primary goals in mind:
Absolutely not! We teach all new players basic throws as well as the rules and strategies of ultimate throughout the season, starting with the preseason game. As a new player, you will be placed on a team with moderate to experienced players who will show you the ropes and teach you the game.
Any event on VOTS calendar labeled 'Open' is open to all players of all levels. You can also get practice/scrimmage announcements by joining the VOTS Players email list by email or by filling in the field near the top of the VOTS webpage.
You will need to bring:
As per General League Policies:
No! All players sign up as individuals and will be drafted on to a team within their appropriate division.
A new player can sign up to be "baggage" with another player.
The concept of baggage is designed solely to introduce brand NEW PLAYERS to the sport by allowing them play on a team with someone they know. You will have the opportunity to list the person you are bagging with on the registration form. (One only, please.) Baggage is NOT intended to ensure that couples & carpoolers get to play together. If couples/carpoolers wish to play together, you will have the option to explain the situation on the registration form. Captains will see your note during the draft and attempt (but not guarantee) to pick you on the same team. Baggage approvals will be left to the discretion of the league director. While we try to accommodate preferences, we reserve the right to refuse baggage requests. Other options for couples/carpoolers: captain together or choose a same night as preference.
Initial player cap: 176 men, 80 women. A wait list will be instituted *before* these caps are met to allow for male/female ratio flexibility.
If 96 women sign up for league, the first 176 men will be drafted and the ratio will be 4/3, offense calls. If the cap of 96 women is not met, the first 80 women and first 192 men will be drafted on to teams with a 5/2 male/female ratio.
Again, a wait list will be put into place *before* these caps are met.
The fee for league registration is $48. Spring League will include a jersey in your team's color.
