The growth of youth ultimate

All kids should have the opportunity to play. Our dream is that one day all youth are able to sign up to play ultimate through their local recreation center, YMCA, school and ultimate organization. To make these programs available everywhere, USA Ultimate is working hard to develop the programs, resources and infrastructure necessary to support this growth such as Learn to Play and GUM. Youth represents our fastest growing area of membership.


National level competition, teams and players

USA Ultimate supports the best ultimate events in the country, winning gold medals in international competition and developing the strongest ultimate athletes in the world. You don’t compete at this level? That’s okay. Without our success in competition, not as many people would know about ultimate in the U.S., not as many people would support the development of ultimate in their community, ultimate participation in the U.S. would not be at the all-time high of over 5 million people and there is no way we would have a chance at being in the Olympics in the foreseeable future! So while not everyone plays at the most competitive levels, supporting a structure which develops elite competition is important for the future of the sport.


Building the ultimate community

USA Ultimate believes the future of the sport depends on building a strong national infrastructure with local organizations. USA Ultimate has committed staff, resources and financial support to building partnerships with the ultimate community with the goal of uniting us all into one big family!
