For Event Organizers
The USA Ultimate Skills Challenge also provides a way for organizers to offer safe activities to your local disc community. The structure of competition is flexible and can be adapted to a variety of different environments. For example:
- Structure the competition to meet USA Ultimate’s Return to Play guidelines and follow local health and safety regulations in today’s COVID-19 environment. Individual skills competitions are easier than team-based activities when it comes to social distancing, cleaning and sanitizing, staggered scheduling and other safety considerations.
- Choose a subset of challenges to include in a competition based on available space, the age or ability of participants, time constraints or volunteer staffing.
- Offer prizes or incentives for performance or participation.
- Rent a facility (or not) like a soccer or football field. (Lines will be helpful for some challenges.)
Challenges were designed to be done with any USA Ultimate approved discs. Participants under the age of 13 are encouraged to use Youth Level-approved discs while all other competitors should use Championship or General Level discs.
Spirit of the Game
Just like ultimate, the Skills Challenge is a self-officiated competition. Participants are expected to follow the principles of Spirit of the Game, including knowing and following the rules. While there are fitness, developmental and competitive elements to the Skills Challenge, the primary objective is fun! Stay focused on the pure enjoyment of throwing, catching, running, jumping and interacting with other participants, either online or in person.
