Grant Program



Current Grant Program

USA Ultimate assists hundreds of players in getting involved with ultimate each year. The New Start Program provides resources and materials to assist with the start-up of new ultimate programs, leauges or teams. Applicants may only take advantage of the New Start Program once per program. Applicants must reside in the United States. Based on demand, USAU may not be able to fulfill all requests. Due to budget constraints resulting from COVID-19, we are temporarily suspending the review, approval and shipment of kits. When it has become more feasible, we will review applications later in the year.

Administrators have the option of selecting from the following kits:

  • Learn to Play Kit
  • Team Kit
  • U12 Kit


For more details about the kits or to purchase a kit without waiting for the next monthly grant review, please visit our merchandise program page.
