March 16 Update
USA Ultimate has made the decision to follow the CDC's guidance, released yesterday, to limit public gatherings for eight weeks. As a result, USA Ultimate events are being canceled or postponed through at least May 10. That includes canceling college regional championships and postponing, indefinitely, some high school state championships and the Beach Championships.
AYU will be evaluating the latest updates and recommendations to make a decision on state championships.
March 13 Update
USA Ultimate has announced that all USAU-sanctioned events through April 20 will be postponed or canceled. This applies to clinics, leagues, practices, and tournaments – including coaching clinics. This means that all AYU events sanctioned through USAU will be postponed or canceled.
On behalf of our entire board and staff, postponing and delaying events, shortening seasons, and other cancellations or 'pauses' is the last decision any of us wanted to make. We appreciate your understanding and commitment to this sport and the health and safety of the players and the community.
The large organizations we are keeping a close eye on are:
- CHSAA (Colorado’s governing varsity sports’ organizers)
- USA Ultimate
- Colorado Governor's office
- Local School Districts
- CDC and other health officials
We will be taking the lead from these organizations on how to proceed following the suspension of events. We will keep posting to this page and to our social media platforms.
As frustrations and disappointments elevate, please keep in mind our social responsibility to the rest of the community. It is a privilege to be strong and healthy at this time, and with privilege comes the responsibility of taking care of those not as healthy.
