2016 USA Ultimate Beach Championships Coming to Virginia Beach

1 Mar, 2016

The USA Ultimate Beach Championships will be held May 14-15, 2016 in Virginia Beach, Virginia.

The goal of this event is to provide national level competition for players in the Beach Division. The guidelines that follow are USA Ultimate's requirements for qualification and criteria for acceptance for the 2016 Beach Championships. As this is a new and growing division, these guidelines and the bid allocation process are subject to change in future years.

In order to award bids early enough so that teams can make the necessary preparations for selecting and preparing their teams, and so that organizers can make the necessary preparations, there is an early registration period (Phase 1) during which the minimum number of teams (6 per division) must register in order to hold the event for each division. If the minimum registration requirements are met during Phase 1, a late registration period (Phase 2) may be opened up for additional teams to fill available spots in the tournament.

Teams will be selected with emphasis being placed on geographic distribution, team strength and involvement in the beach ultimate community. 

Changes for 2016

•             Roster maximums increased

•             Gender equity provisions for mixed rosters

•             New uniform requirements
