LEAGUE INFO

This league is a draft league, so everyone signs up as a free agent. You may baggage with up to one (1) person. Mixed gender-matching baggage (before the May 29th cutoff) are guaranteed acceptance into the Mixed division. Any remaining male-matching spots in the Mixed League will be assigned via lottery on May 30th. Don’t know what “baggage” is? Read the FAQ below!

  • Male-matching players who only want to play in Men’s League should register for the Men’s Division.
  • Male-matching players who want to play Mixed League should sign up for the Mixed Division, and please be sure to indicate in the followup surveys if you would be willing to play Men’s in case you don’t get into Mixed division via the lottery. This information is used exclusively after the lottery.
COST
  • Early Bird | May 6-22 | $85
  • Regular | May 23-29 | $90
  • Late | Players registering after May 29th will pay a non-refundable $10 late fee; and acceptance to either division is at the League Director’s discretion based on balancing teams’ relative strengths

As always, LAOUT’s A-List Members will get 10% off; and LAOUT’s Star & Legend Members registration is free. Late fees are late fees, so sign up early!

Please note: if you have a financial barrier preventing you from registering for this league, please email us so we can help you get out on the field.

FAQ
When and where is Summer League played?
  • REGULAR SEASON – The 10-week season begins Monday, June 6 and ends Thursday, August 11. Games are played Monday-Friday nights, 8:00PM – 10:00PM. We’re still finalizing the fields, but expect locations from Pasadena to Santa Monica, from Inglewood to Van Nuys–everybody should have a few games that are closer, and a few that are farther; consider it a chance to check out a new neighborhood.
  • TOURNAMENT – Both Men’s & Mixed Leagues culminate in a day-long tournament and party! We’re working on finalizing the fields for the tournament and are hoping that it will be on Saturday, August 13th; August 14th is the alternate date we’re exploring. We’ll update all registrants as soon as we have confirmation from the field complex and bar/restaurant/brewery.
Are there any discounts for beginners?

Of course! Welcome! Welcome! If you are new to Ultimate or this is your first league with LAOUT, please use the following coupon codes before you checkout for a special discount on your first event and Basic LAOUT Membership:

  • Female-matching players: STRONGWOMAN
  • Male-matching players: STRONGMEN
What is "baggage" and how do we get it set up correctly?

“Baggaging” with someone means that you are connected to them for this event. No matter which of you is drafted by a team, you both will automatically join that team for this event. Baggaging is not required, but is good for carpooling to help save the environment, and/or to play with a friend.

  • In order to baggage with someone you BOTH must put each other down during registration and accept the other person’s request.
  • This is the first process once registration starts, but the system calls it “Group Registration.” Make sure to put your person’s name in there; if they’re not in the system yet then please provide their email and they should be sent a request to join.
What is the format / gender-match ratio?
  • All Mixed games will be 6 on 6; this is intended to create equal gender ratios (3:3) for all points. Also of note, we’re an inclusive league; all players are welcome to play as the gender you identify with.
  • For the Men’s games, it will be 7 on 7.
COVID Restrictions & Vaccinations

Proof of COVID vaccination IS REQUIRED for Summer League 2022 and for all future leagues. All players are required to upload a photo of or screenshot of their vaccination card into Ultimate Central during registration. Our number one priority for LAOUT members is safety; we hope that this revised policy creates a safe environment for all players to have some fun as we get back into our regular league schedule.

    In the demographic information page the text says you are forgoing memberships this year, but in checking out it says membership required. Which one?

    If you are male identifying, sign up for mixed and do not make the lottery- will you receive a full refund?
