Welcome! The Boone Ultimate Alliance was established in the late 70s - early 80s by The Nomads, Appalachian State University's (ASU) club ultimate team. Around 2000, the Lady Nonads emerged on the scene to birth ASU women's ultimate.
Starting in 2005 local pickup games began and the passion for ultimate began to grow beyond the college scene. BUA was formed in Spring 2008 to establish ONE Boone ultimate community.
Thus far, BUA has had 18 leagues, supported a co-ed club team from 2008 to the present, and thanks to the efforts and expertise of George Ehrhardt, has a youth division growing and thriving.
Here we are in 2016 and it looks to be the most exciting year yet for the BUA. This past Fall saw the inaugural Half league as such a popular event, it will now be expanded to 6 weeks alongside the regular league. No, we are not changing the name to the 2/3 league.
League 18 was the largest turnout ever with over 100 people drafted. Therefore, League 19 will also be an expansion this Spring rising to 7 teams, utilizing 3 fields, and with a new disc design to boot. See the League pages for tentative dates.
Most exciting of all is the implementation of Boone's first USAU sanctioned 2-day tournament this Summer. It will be called The Chillout and will hopefully have an adult mixed division of 14 teams and a youth division of 6 teams. It is slated for July 16-17 or July 9-10. Dates are TBA as we are attempting to secure field space.
Keep checking back for details.
