    AYU's Commitment to Racial Equity

    The Altitude Youth Ultimate board is appalled at the oppression by police of black and brown people that — while a long-standing issue in this country — has been most recently brought to light by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Elijah McCain and many others. We are also heartened by the world’s response, rising up with words and deeds to try to put a stop to unfair policing and to promote social justice. And while we find that the actions and conversations happening within the Ultimate community are particularly important and necessary, we know that words or a moment of action are not enough.

    March 16 Update: AYU and USAU Respond to COVID-19

    USA Ultimate Response to COVID-19

    This post will be updated frequently as this situation is quickly evolving. Please take the necessary steps personally to keep yourself and others around you healthy.

    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.
