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:

Schedule & Fields

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.
