This weekend marked the start of the USA Ultimate Club Series, the playoffs for club teams across the country. The journey to Sarasota begins locally at Sectionals, smaller tournaments that feed the top teams to Regionals in late September and early October. There teams will face off for the elusive bids to Nationals.
Here’s all the action from around the country this weekend. The teams with bids to Regionals are listed below in the order of their finish, along with any notable performances or upsets.
|Truck Stop||Ambiguously Grey||Scandal|

|Heva Havas||The Muff 'N Men||Crickets|
|Dire Wolf||Jughandle||Proceed With Caution|
|Trenton Takers||Jagged Ice|
|Philadelphia Gavel||Stark Appeal|
Notable Performances: Pittsburgh’s Oakland upset Philadelphia’s Southpaw 13-11 to win the Founders Open Section. The two teams might well face off again at the Mid-Atlantic Regionals, where only one bid to Nationals will make for intense games throughout the championship bracket.
