Fall League 2023 ~ League Information

Valley of the Sun Ultimate


About Ultimate and VOTS Leagues

Ultimate frisbee (or ultimate disc) 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 play by USAU's current rule set.

How is league structured?


Schedule & Fields

This league includes a shirt & disc!

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.

Fall League 2023 Registration

Do I need to have a team to sign up?

No! All players sign up as individuals and will be drafted on to a team within their appropriate division.

Can I play on the same team as my friends?

Woman-matching players new to ultimate are guaranteed to be placed on a team with one person they ask for.

Most baggage will be honored with the possible exception of paired club players. All baggage approvals will be left to the discretion of the league director. Please note, baggage of more than one person might be hard to accommodate and lead to unbalanced teams.

What is the player cap and the wait list?

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 (man-matching or woman-matching) out-paces the other. If registration switches to a wait list, please, still sign up for league.


Mixed teams will have a man-matching captain and a woman-matching captain.

In addition to picking your team at draft, captaining includes:

Tentative draft date Sept. 17th.
