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:
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.
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 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.
For 16 teams: Initial player cap is 176 man-matching players, 80 woman-matching players. A wait list will be instituted *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.
League draft is tentatively scheduled for September 26th.
The fee for league registration is $55 (late registration: $70 if not registered and paid or on Wait List by 9/16). This includes a jersey, unless registration numbers are very low, in which case teams will play more games and not have shirts. Shirts will likely be A4 Cooling Performance Crew (Men's Specs, Women's Specs).
If you have problems using PayPal, please email Katherine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have already completed and submitted a registration form, but still need to complete payment, please, use the button below or on the Confirmation/Pay page. Note: Payment made without filling out the registration form will not count as a registration.
As of 9/23/21, 11:30: New league registrations for ALL players will go to the Wait List. If you are still interested in playing league, sign up! Roster spots and sub opportunities might become available. Do not pay unless instructed to by a league representative.
