Yes, Ultimate is governed by the organization of USA Ultimate. This membership is needed to compete in the spring season. We have the cheapest dues in Club Sports typically about $50 for the entire year. That covers tournament fees, hotels, etc.
There are no cuts. The tryout process is to test yourself among the group to earn a spot on the A team. The A team travels to around 4-5 tournaments per semester and B team will go to 3-4 tournaments. Both teams are competitive, just on different levels. The B team is in place to act as a developmental squad to ensure those who need extra time with fundamentals will get it. There are opportunities for B team players to be brought up to A team based on performance and recommendation.
