ARIA Ultimate: The Newest USAU and WFDF Championship-Level Disc!

ARIA Ultimate discs are officially approved by USA Ultimate and the World Flying Disc Federation for the highest level of play

We are thrilled to announce that as of August 29, 2017, ARIA discs have been approved by USA Ultimate, the sport’s national governing body in the United States, as officially accepted for Championship level play. This is the highest distinction available for ultimate discs in the country, and because the World Flying Disc Federation - the international governing body for ultimate, among other disc sports - takes its disc approvals from USAU, the ARIA disc has also been approved for elite ultimate play worldwide.

This means a number of things for ARIA Ultimate and the ultimate community as a whole. By receiving approval, the ARIA disc has demonstrated a level of quality suitable for all levels of play, including the highest levels of competitive ultimate. Championship-level discs can be used by teams at any level of the sport, from rec leagues to national or world championships and from the playground to the finals field. Through ARIA, the newest players joining our sport around the world will be able to use the exact same disc the highest level players in the game use, and that’s a remarkable thing.

Early adoption of ARIA Ultimate discs by top level teams

Several top level teams, including Seattle Mixtape - the 2017 US. Open Champions - have already added the disc to their roster. Many Mixtape players believe strongly in giving back to the sport through coaching local teams and other community-focused work, and a partnership with ARIA enables their support to go even further through ARIA’s 1 for 1 donation model.

ARIA seeks to connect the highest level of ultimate with our mission of growing the sport and propelling ultimate into the future. By earning championship-level approval from USAU, ARIA will further be able to strengthen this connection and continue to move towards a better world through ultimate at every level.

Yes, they were the mixed champions of several tournaments, including nationals! This reference is to the fact that at the time of writing the post, they had recently won the tournament called the “US Open”. Confusing word order on our part, sorry about that!

We believe that Black Lives Matter — Now what does that mean for us as a company?

Last week, George Floyd was murdered. Our hearts were heavy for this loss of innocent life, each of us processing this tragedy independently. It took until late Friday for someone to broach the subject at a staff meeting. Regrettably and with great consequence, our executive team was unprepared. The setup was wrong, the timing was wrong, and our response was wrong — but if not for all these wrongs, we may have just remained the same company.
