USA Ultimate, the national governing body for the sport of ultimate in the United States and a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee, has announced that it will relocate its national headquarters to Colorado Springs from Boulder, Colorado.
“The sport of ultimate has really taken off, and we can’t wait to see it grow in our vibrant, active community,” said Rick Adams, USOC chief of Paralympic sport and national governing body organizational development. “Soon, USA Ultimate will be sparking new passions and increasing knowledge of the game in Colorado Springs, and we’re thrilled to see that unfold. We look forward to working together to achieve the brightest possible future for the sport of ultimate and are excited to welcome USA Ultimate to our hometown.”
According to the organization, the need for a new and larger national office became apparent following the growth both the sport of ultimate and the national governing body have experienced in recent years. At the culmination of a two-year, highly competitive search and bid process, and after USA Ultimate became a member of the USOC earlier this year, the decision was made to strategically relocate its headquarters. Colorado Springs previously served as the home of USA Ultimate from 1992 to 2002.
“We’re very excited about our upcoming move to the ‘Olympic City and ‘Amateur Sports Capital’ of the United States,” said USA Ultimate CEO Tom Crawford. “This move allows us to leverage our location for all kinds of support and education for our staff, including many seminars on best practices that occur constantly among our friends and colleagues in the Olympic movement and sporting community, not to mention all of the USOC expertise.
USA Ultimate has secured 7,500 square feet of new office space on the city’s northwest side, sharing the USA Triathlon building. It will officially move into the new headquarters on January 9.
