California Ultimate works year round to promote the sport of Ultimate and your attendance helps support our programs. What do we do? Glad you asked!

    1. Create innovative programming: in 2020 we created and ran Uplift Ultimate virtual youth camp during the COVID-19 isolation phase in partnership with PGH Ultimate, in 2021 Project Disc Go delivered 1,000 discs to Inglewood and Fresno families and continues to create engaging skills videos on TikTok accessed by the QR code on the disc, and this year Project Disc Go Disco has transformed the average Ultimate warmup into a fun and creative dance session which we plan to teach kids across CA and social media to get them moving and smiling with a disc in hand;
    2. Develop partnerships to expand youth play: this spring when Inglewood Unified School District had a dearth of Middle School PE teachers we took over all classes at 4 schools for 7 weeks, this summer with LA County Parks we are running a free 8-week Ultimate and disc golf class at Magic Johnson Park in Willowbrook as part of Parks After Dark, and we’ve now trained and certified 15 new coaches (and 20 LA Parks staff!) to introduce kids to Ultimate at over 37 LA City Parks this summer and fall through day camps, Summer Night Lights clinics and leagues, as well as evening classes; and
    3. Run events to support our youth, college, & club members: from HS States, to Conferences & Sectionals, to Team USA tryouts, we strive to provide fun and exciting opportunities that are hosted in CA;
    4. Support local orgs: from finding cost-effective shareable services to talking through event calendars and ways to incentivize more participation up and down the state, we strive to facilitate discussion and productivity;
    5. Build awareness: we strategically bid on and run national and world championships in the hopes local and national media pick up Ultimate, we also weave together our partnerships and hire local staff in untapped areas to plant the seeds of new local orgs.

We look forward to hosting you, and so does the greater Temecula area. If you have any further questions please contact the event organizer and tournament director by emailing college-td@calulti.org.
