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:
Men's League: All men currently registered or wait listed for the league (as of 11/22/18) will play the first doubleheader on Monday. Teams will be posted by Sunday night. Game time Monday is 7 p.m. Sharp. Fields are available for warm up before this.
Women's League: Unfortunately, the number of women registered for the league is insufficient, and the league is cancelled. Refunds will be issued.
Laura Tan will be running a series of women's clinics for beginners and intermediate players starting this wed at 8pm for three weeks. We will have registration for that up as soon as possible.
Absolutely not! We teach all new players basic throws as well as the rules and strategies of ultimate throughout the season. 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.
You will need to bring:
As per General League Policies:
No! All players sign up as individuals and are placed on teams which even out the number of beginner, intermediate, and advanced players per team.
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 approvals will be left to the discretion of the league director.
Initial cap is 60 players per division. A wait list will be instituted *before* caps are met to avoid over-filling.
The fee for league registration is $18. No league shirts or discs.
