Thank you for your interest in attending the 2021 USA Ultimate Youth Club Championships, the youth division of the US Open Club Championships.
Where: Blaine, MN
When: August 7-9, 2021
ALL TEAMS - COVID CONTINGENCIES: Due to the rapidly changing landscape of the COVID-19 pandemic, all teams will be expected to comply with local, state, and USA Ultimate medical and safety requirements for the event. While these are still changing, teams should think about the potential need for additional chaperones and extra rooms at their hotel/lodging (in case players must be quarantined).
The player fee for the Youth Division is $72/player and MN adds sales tax, which would be ~$5.25. This means that the total cost (fee+ tax) per player will be $77.25, which includes a tournament disc. NOTE: this fee may change slightly due to changes in conditions caused by the COVID pandemic.
Applications will open the week of March 15th.
There will not be phases this year.
We will begin to award bids on April 15th to teams with completed applications and continue awarding any additional bids on a rolling basis as complete applications are received.
Final bid acceptance and due date for team deposits is June 18th. The bid deposit is $927 - the player fees for 12 players (team minimums), and it is NON-REFUNDABLE. In the event that YCC is cancelled by USA Ultimate, the subject of refunds will be re-visited; please see last page of application.
Team selection is governed within each phase by the bid priority system outlined in the 2021 Youth Guidelines.
Player eligibility is governed by the Youth Competition Guidelines. Per the guidelines, players not participating in either a USAU State Championship or a USAU sanctioned youth club league need to apply for an eligibility exception.
The YCC U20 Girls' Developmental Scholarship program is also available for organizations that would like to bring a U20 Girls' team but have some financial hurdles. If you are interested in applying, please contact the Manager of Youth & Outreach Programs (email@example.com).
