Elite 2024 - South

ULTIMATE ELITE GOALS - the primary two goals for this Ultimate Elite program are:

(1) COMPETITION - we know you get this within your region but imagine if we're taking THE most competitive players from each region and you have the opportunity to compete and learn and engage at a consequently higher level both within practices and competitions.

(2) VISIBILITY - because Ultimate Elite permits a higher level of competition, teams are entered into higher brackets within tournaments and compete within historically smaller but more inclusive events.

Looking at these goals, #1 has to happen before #2 and, with the Ultimate Elite age groups, we have a little breathing room with #2 in terms of timeline.

FOCUSING ON THE COMPETITION - for 2022 we're going to focus on the competition - for 2023 we will bring in the tournaments (one winter and one summer event) and, importantly, this timeline is perfect for even the oldest (2024) group - in fact this will be exactly in line!
