About Ultimate and VOTS Leagues

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:

  1. to introduce new players to the sport of Ultimate.
  2. to provide a place for all levels of players to play in a competitive, team-oriented atmosphere.

How is league structured?

Games will be primarily Tues 8pm in Tempe.

Summer League will be split into two sessions:

Play one session for $18 or both for $30.

Three to four teams per session, with one game per week or two games every three weeks. Registration numbers will determine league size and exactly when in July the change to Session 2 will occur. It is possible that in Session 2, teams will play up to two games on Thurs, but would only have two games in one week one time.

Games will be at:

Do I need to know how to play?

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.

What do I need to play?

You will need to bring:

  1. Non-metal cleats (or tennis shoes if you don't have cleats).
  2. Water (you'll get thirsty).

Anything else?

As per General League Policies:

  1. VOTS discourages dogs at VOTS-sponsored leagues. If participants do bring dogs to VOTS-sponsored leagues, the owner must be aware of and abide by all applicable local leash laws.
  2. Alcohol IS permitted on the field in cups and cans. No glass is allowed.
  3. Any underage participant in violation of the Arizona alcohol consumption laws or any adult participant who furnishes alcohol to or purchases alcohol for an underage participant is subject to immediate suspension for a time at the determination/discretion of the board.
  4. Under NO circumstances should anybody drive onto the fields.

Summer League 2019 League Registration

Do I need to have a team to sign up?

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.

Can I play on the same team as my friends?

A new player can sign up to be "baggage" with another player.

The concept of baggage is designed 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 isn't intended to ensure that couples & carpoolers get to play together, but effort will be made to grant these requests. Request 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.

What is the player cap and the wait list?

Initial player cap 36 men, 15 women. A wait list will be instituted slightly *before* these caps are met to avoid over-filling, or if one side of the registration out-paces the other. If registration switches to a wait list, please, still sign up for league.

Registration will remain open through May 16th.

How much does league cost?

One Session: $18

Both Sessions: $30
