Ultimate Frisbee Leagues

If you are looking for a new sport to play and are interested in meeting new people while having fun, then CMSA Ultimate is the league for you. Ultimate is a relatively easy game to learn, there are 10 simple rules that are the best way to get familiar with the basics. The most important rule to be noted is the Spirit of the Game. Ultimate stresses sportsmanship and fair play. Competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of respect between players, adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play.

CMSA Ultimate is a Co-Ed Ultimate League offered by Chicago Metropolitan Sports Association (CMSA), the largest not-for-profit LGBTQ+ sports organization in the Midwest. We are now EXPANDING to have a SPRING and FALL season for CMSA Ultimate.

CMSA Ultimate Summer edition runs from June through the middle of August, with one week of playoffs included (dates vary from year to year.) Games are played on Wednesday nights from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM at Cricket Hill near Montrose Beach. Weekly social events are held after gameplay on Wednesday nights at varying locations that are always based on league sponsorship.

CMSA Ultimate Fall edition runs from August through October, with one week of playoffs included (dates vary from year to year). Game night, dates, times, and location are TBD.


CMSA Ultimate prides itself on being a competitive league that also fosters a strong sense of community for players creating a social network that extends beyond the field. Players of all walks of life are welcome, we just request good vibes and good attitudes.
