Team Numbers and Rosters
There are 5 players on a field at a time, you may have as many substitutes as you wish on the team. In the Mixed-Gender Division Format, there will be a 3/2 gender split of either gender on the field at all times. There is a MAXIMUM of 3 of any gender on the field at any time. We recommend a team of 8-10 players to allow for substitutes as you will be playing multiple games throughout the day.
This event will be open to all High Schools and will offer the following divisions and age groups:
|MIXED Divisions||Year 7||Year 8|
|Year 9||Year 10|
|Year 7-8 Combined||Year 9-10 Combined|
Combination teams are permissible, depending on the ratio we will assess and fairly assign combination teams to the applicable division. Divisions can also be renamed to align with registrations received.
*The minimum number of team registrations required for a division to go ahead is four (4). WA Ultimate holds the right to cancel, amend or rename a division if there are not enough participating teams registered in that division. If you have entered a team in a division that does become cancelled, you will be notified prior to the event and may enter the participants in another division.
The 2021 High School Ultimate Championships will be using a set of Modified rules available here.
Ultimate is based on Spirit of the Game (SOTG). That places the responsibility for fair play on every player. There are no external referees; the players are solely responsible for following and enforcing the rules, even at the World Championship level. Competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of respect between players, adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play.
To help participants learn this unique aspect of the game we will provide Game Facilitators at each field to help fairly regulate games.
There are 5 players on a field at a time, you may have as many substitutes as you wish on the team. Substitutes may only be made once a point has finished, or in the case of an injury.

Discs: Official game discs: 175g Ultra-Star will be in use for the High School Ultimate Championships.
Uniforms: Teams are encouraged to wear a matching school or sports uniform for the event, bibs will be accessible if necessary when a school has multiple teams and has to play against themselves.
Footwear: Ultimate is generally played in cleats (eg. Football/soccer boots.) This footwear helps with turning and pivoting in the game of Ultimate. Cleats are not necessary or mandatory to play, however, enclosed shoes (running shoes) are.
Game Facilitators will be present at each field. These Facilitators will be there to clarify rules, keep the games running smoothly, assist with Spirit of the Game and provide ongoing support to all teams taking part in the event.
WA Ultimate conducts COVID Aware and Responsible competitions, and a number of public health practices will be enforced. All participants must adhere to these guidelines as directed by COVID Marshals and WA Ultimate staff.
