Please note: Local ultimate organizations are working hard to bring folks together and are still struggling to keep their doors open due to the pandemic. We appreciate anything you can pay. Part of your program fees will go directly back into local disc organizations across the US so they can also keep players active and in touch.
USA Ultimate Memberships: Uplift Ultimate is sanctioned through USA Ultimate which provides both us and you with insurance, and also provides all of our coaches with access to SafeSport certification to ensure our community is as safe as possible. Because this isn’t a championship series, players need only have an Affiliate Membership at $14 through USA Ultimate. We have built in the cost of member to our pricing so no need to sign up through USAU, we’ll give them your information and you’ll get a USAU Membership emailed to you within a week of signing up.
Quotes from campers and parents after our 2020 Summer Camp:
Our goal is to provide a safe place for athletes to learn & ask questions while also encouraging them to push the boundaries of their own comfort zones. We want you to try new things, be willing to fail, & support you as you try again.
Serving players from absolute beginners to traveling team superstars, Uplift provides virtual sport-specific training and top-notch coaching to help players and teams:
As we all await a complete return to play, Uplift hopes to create and sustain communities while staying socially distant.
All Uplift sessions through 2021 will be held through Zoom. Activities are designed to be doable solo and in small (indoor or outdoor) spaces. Coaches and staff will explain how Uplift trainings can be adapted to larger spaces outdoors and with additional players should local guidelines allow such activity.

We’ll send you a packet detailing how to download and set up Zoom – and other digital platforms we’ll use – on the device of your choosing.
So much! We have an all-star cast of coaches that will be delivering programming chalk-full of expertise, perspective, tools, exercises, and drills that you can try at home and then expand upon as pandemic restrictions are eased.
From one of our summer campers: “We didn’t know what a virtual Ult Camp would be like but we decided to take a chance couldn’t be happier that we did. So great, in fact that we came back for more! Great coaches, great activities.”

Uplift will honor any refund request for single clinics up until 3 days before the clinic date. Team Packs, throwing form analysis, and team workout programs cannot be refunded unless Uplift cancels one or more events, or if Uplift postpones a program and the team cannot make the new time frame.
Uplift also reserves the right to cancel any clinic or program at any time. If a cancellation has occurred, Uplift will provide a full or proportionate refund based on the product purchase, package deal, and/or other discounts/scholarships applied. While Uplift never wants to cancel a program, our programs are designed to be interactive and connect people which means a certain number of participants are needed.
