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.

We will be playing by USAU 2020-21 rule set.

How is league structured?

General Info for 1st Session (May–July)

General Information for 2nd Session

The second summer session will be August–September. More details to come.

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. No glass is allowed on the fields.
  3. Under NO circumstances should anybody drive onto the fields.

Summer Leagues 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 caps of 80 man-matching players and 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 (man-matching or woman-matching) out-paces the other. If registration switches to a wait list, please, still sign up for league. The number of teams may be expanded if there is enough interest. Initial registration closes May 7th.

How much does league cost?

The fee for league registration is $20. This league will not include a jersey or disc.

If you have problems using PayPal, please email Katherine at webmaster@vots.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.
