Vermont Youth Ultimate League
The Vermont Youth Ultimate League (VYUL) is very excited to announce the formation
of Vermont’s first ever youth Ultimate all-star team, Green Mountain Mixed (GMX). GMX is a
co-ed team of Vermonters who aim to show the rest of the country just how talented they are at
the National Youth Championship Tournament (Youth Club Championships - YCC) in
Minneapolis on August 9-10. This is the first time Vermont has put-together such a traveling
youth all-star team - but the early signs point to GMX having a fair shot of claiming the national
Founded in New Jersey in 1967, Ultimate (aka Ultimate frisbee) has become one of the
fastest-growing sports. Ultimate is now frequently covered in mainstream media, has received
recognition from the International Olympic Committee (IOC), and counts over 5 million players
in the USA (more than lacrosse, rugby and ice hockey combined)! A fast-paced field sport,
Ultimate games are played to 15 goals or take 90 minutes (whichever comes first), and is a noncontact
sport where the players self-officiate the game. On a field that looks and is sized similarly
to football, Ultimate goals are scored by completing a pass in an endzone, and players can only
advance the disc by passing (no running with the disc). With 7 players per team on the field at a
time, team rosters typically range from 16-24 players, and there is also a mixed (coed) division to
compliment the standard boys/men’s and girls/women’s divisions. Ultimate teaches
sportsmanship, personal responsibility, and dispute resolution - all through a spirited, competitive
sport experience.
Like many places throughout the country, Ultimate has become very popular in Vermont.
VYUL is a fast-growing grassroots organization supporting the growth of youth Ultimate here in
Vermont. The mission of the VYUL is to promote health, happiness, responsibility, and
community through the sport of Ultimate at the youth level in the State of Vermont. With over 25
high school teams representing more than 400 current student-athletes, their families, and school
communities, Vermont Youth Ultimate is bigger than ever! Although the spring season (April –
May) is the peak of the action, VYUL runs events throughout the year. Every year, VYUL also
runs a quarterly youth clinic series, a couple of coaching clinics and safety trainings, a two-week
long summer camp, a traveling all-star team, and several additional competitive showcase events.
VYUL is governed by a five-member board of directors that works closely with the following
· USA Ultimate (USAU), the sport’s national governing body with HQ in Boulder, CO
· Green Mountain Disc Alliance (GMDA), the sport’s largest organization in Vermont
· Vermont Principals’ Association (VPA) Ultimate committee
VYUL’s 2014 summer fundraising campaign aims to raise $30,000 to grow the youth
Ultimate community in Vermont, as well as to bring the GMX all-star team to Minneapolis this
August. If you would like to follow the VYUL or GMX more closely, have any questions, or
