The College Championships were first held in 1984 in Somerville, Mass., with just a men’s division. The women’s division was added to the College Championships in 1987.
Since then, the college division has grown steadily and is currently USA Ultimate’s biggest member segment. Hundreds of college teams compete in the postseason championship season every year with eyes on advancing through conference and regional championship events to qualify for the College Championships.
Tickets for the 2023 College Championships will be available online and through the USA Ultimate mobile app or at the gate. Check back for more information as the event gets closer.
In all, 40 teams compete at the College Championships – 20 each in the men’s and women’s divisions.
Teams qualify for the College Championships by competing in conference and regional championship events held around the country.
Each year, hundreds of college teams compete in USA Ultimate’s college division. In 2022, 617 teams competed in the postseason championship series: 367 Division I teams, 162 Division III teams and 88 Developmental teams.
