Where to Play
Are memberships refundable or transferable?
No, USA Ultimate memberships are not refundable nor transferable. Memberships are not tied directly to a specific event or program.
Member dues help support USA Ultimate’s many efforts and programs designed to advance the sport at all levels across the nation.
Can I upgrade my membership?
Yes. You can upgrade an annual membership from one type or duration to a higher one, as long as you upgrade for all remaining years of your current membership.
You cannot upgrade from a player membership to a non-player membership (i.e., coach and player to just a coach membership).
If you have a multi-year membership and are not in the first year, email your upgrade request to firstname.lastname@example.org. You will receive an invoice for the difference in cost of the memberships. Once you complete the payment, let us know via email, and we’ll manually upgrade your membership.
Are memberships tax deductible?
No. USA Ultimate memberships are not tax deductible. Memberships automatically come with benefits, which means they are not deductible according to IRS rules.
Any donations to the Ultimate Foundation are tax deductible!
