About the UIC
The Ultimate Invite Championship aims to bring together those programs that find themselves on the outside of qualification for the USAU Championship. This alternative National Championship is a great way for teams to culminate their season and build a strong foundation for future years.
Over the last decade, there has been very little turnover in the teams vying for the USAU National Championship. Programs that have been inside that mix have gained a vast amount of experience and institutional knowledge at the tournament that allows them to continue to make the trip year after year. For the teams that have failed to move past Regionals, the disparity between they and those that qualify continues to grow.
The Ultimate Invite Championship is a tournament that strives to close this experience gap by giving teams an end-of-season, high-level playing opportunity that will prepare them to be competitive in 2016 and beyond.
Qualification for the UIC
The tournament will be invite only based on a combination of final USAU RRI rankings post August 26th, geographic diversity, and TD discretion. For more information about invitations, please see our invite section.
The Ultimate Invite Championship and the USAU
Though the UIC is not part an official part of the USAU championship series, we support their organization and hope that in years to come it provides more playing opportunities for its membership.
