After more than a year and a half off from any meaningful competition, we’re looking at a club season with more uncertainty than ever before. Big-name players will have moved or retired, talent will realign across divisions, new teams will sprout up to challenge existing stalwarts, and even some championship contenders are deciding whether or not to compete at all.

With so much in flux, we’ve collected what we know about the season plans of 2019 nationals qualifiers and will continue to update this tracker as we learn more. (We’ve also noted whether they’ve confirmed attendance at Pro-Elite Challenge, scheduled for July 10-11 in Aurora, CO.) If you’re a team contact with additional information for a team listed below, please let us know by emailing editor@ultiworld.com with your update!
