UltiPhotos of the Month: March 2020

The best shots of the month!

In our UltiPhotos of the Month series, we feature some of our favorite shots from the leading photography company in ultimate. You get the play, they’ll get the shot.

As ultimate competition grinds to a halt along with the rest of the world under the threat of coronavirus, March saw the last opportunities for the ultimate community to gather for a tournament. UltiPhotos was on hand to document the abrupt end of the college season along with some elite high school play, capturing images of players and teams still excited to be together and competing.

We may not yet know when we’ll next be able to take the field, but let these photos be a reminder of all that we love about the sport and motivation to be ready whenever it’s safe to play again.

You can see our favorites from the month of March below or check out the full collections from:
