2022 State Games of America
Qualifying Event

2022 State Games of America

All Iowans are eligible to participate!

Competition Format

7 versus 7. Games played to 9 points during round robin play, but may be played up to 13 in the playoffs. At the time-cap teams will complete the point they are on; if there is a tie, one more point will be played.

We will be trying something new this year! We will have 2 divisions for this year’s tournament.  Competitive and Recreational.  The tournament format will depend on the number of teams that sign up for each division.  If there is a low number of teams, we’ll have a pure round-robin tournament; otherwise we will have round robin pool play followed by a single-elimination tournament to determine medal winners.  All teams will qualify for some level of single-elimination playoffs.  Men and women play in the same division.  20 player roster limit will be enforced (no gender requirements).  Teams must rank themselves from 1 to 10 with 1 being noncompetitive and 10 being most competitive on the entry form.  Please use the following as guidelines when considering your team’s self-ranking.

8-10: Most of the team (>50%) has played on USA Ultimate college and/or club teams

5-7: Most of the team (>50%) has played in summer leagues, intramural teams, and/or high school teams

3-4: Most of the team (>50%) has played in at least one tournament/Iowa Games

1-2: Most of the team (>50%) has never played any organized Ultimate before

Generally speaking, teams that are ranked themselves 1-5 should be in the Recreational Division, and teams ranking themselves 6-10 are in the Competitive Division.  Please be honest with your self-rankings (in both directions) so everyone (both your teams and your opponents) can have an enjoyable day.


USA Ultimate (USAU) 11th Edition Rules will apply.  As always, Spirit of the Game should prevail for both players and spectators. Teams are responsible for their spectators.  The Ultimate director and committee reserve the right to eject teams and/or their spectators if they do not follow the Spirit of the Game.
