USA Ultimate recently issued their new mask protocols based on the latest guidance from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the increasingly positive direction of the COVID-19 pandemic in the U.S.
Their guidelines are designed to address two primary types of events – local tournaments and events, in which participants are residents of the same state, and national-level tournaments, which include participants from multiple states.Read more
As we move into a more safe and vaccinated reality, and likely tournament season, we want to make sure that the lessons we've been learning from Black Lives Matter and our commitment to racial equity do not get forgotten. We want to center our commitment to our BIPOC community (both local and ultimate) as we return to play in Aurora, Colorado. We also want to uplift the recommendations of a task force of Black players and Aurora community members- it is these recommendations that are informing how we are holding tournaments. This also provides you, our community, with the ability to hold us and USAU accountable to our commitments.Read more

Alexia McCaskill recently became the USA Ultimate Girls’ Outreach Coordinator (GOC) for the Boulder area. As the Boulder area GOC, McCaskill will be a resource for any coach, program, or community in the Boulder area hoping to grow girls’ participation in the sport we all love whether it be in the Mixed, Open, or Girls’ Division.
McCaskill has coached mixed division and girls’ division high school teams for Boulder High School students since Spring 2014. During that time, McCaskill has watched the fantastic increase in the number of boys participating in organized Ultimate but has also witnessed what seems to be stagnation or decrease in girls entering and remaining in our sport. McCaskill would like to help our Boulder-area Ultimate community actively recruit, increase participation, and retain over time the number of girls.Read more
Our Response to Recommendations Related to Aurora Police Violence
Dear Ultimate Community,
Earlier this summer, USA Ultimate, Altitude Youth Ultimate and other local disc organizations around the country stood in solidarity with Black members of the ultimate community in denouncing the police violence and systemic racism that has afflicted the Black community for centuries and continues to marginalize them to this day. It is clear that all lives can’t matter until Black Lives Matter. We as a community are committed to taking action and prioritizing work around anti-racism and inclusion, recognizing their critical role in the integrity of our sport’s culture, and we welcome your candid thoughts and involvement as we strive to create meaningful change for BIPOC communities.
In response to the racist acts of violence by the Aurora Police Department – some of which made national news – and to concerns for safety from within our community, Altitude Youth Ultimate/Colorado Ultimate recently hosted an independently moderated focus group featuring Black members of the local and national ultimate community and non-ultimate players living in Aurora, Colo. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss what USAU and AYU could do, not just to create a safe and inclusive environment for BIPOC at events hosted in Aurora and at the Aurora Sports Park, but also to actively support and engage with people in the community.
After hearing recommendations from the group and having several internal conversations, USAU and AYU have put together a list of commitments to advance our progress in serving BIPOC communities. We have also provided expanded descriptions of each organization’s commitments.Read more
