USA Ultimate Outreach


Ultimate staff attend the national Society of Health and Physical Educators (SHAPE) conference every spring to bring ultimate to physical educators across the country. 

Each spring and fall USA Ultimate state outreach coordinators (SOCs) represent the sport at many of the state association physical education (PE) conferences across the country. At the state PE conferences, the state outreach coordinators provide information about the sport, local playing opportunities, coaching development program and promote our youth-serving organization memberships. At most conferences, USA Ultimate representatives will also give a one hour presentation on how to teach ultimate. If you are a PE teacher interested in learning more about ultimate, please stop by our booth at your state or regional convention!

If you are interested in supporting the state outreach coordinator at the confererence on behalf of USA Ultimate or becoming a state outreach coordinator, please contact Youth and Education Programs Coordinator Sarah Powers at
