Dear Beach Ultimate Lovers,

The best Beach Ultimate party tournament in the world will take over Huntington State Beach per usual on MLK Jr weekend, January 14 & 15, 2023. After Omicron swept away our 2022 dreams, we’re more confident than ever that LeiOut 2023 is going to be incredible. Two years of ideas and planning will manifest in a truly unique experience for 3,000+ Ultimate players; we hope you’ll be there to soak it in.

The LeiOut 2023 team is excited about bringing everyone together, and we want you to know that we remain dedicated to safety, fun, and community. LeiOut participants, staff, and volunteers will still be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 this year. Our health experts highly recommend staying up to date with COVID boosters, but we will not require proof of your booster(s).

After 21 LeiOuts, we are most excited to open our first Grand Master (Niʻihau) and Great Grand Master (Kahoʻolawe) Divisions! Per usual, all divisions will be mixed, and all divisions except the most competitive one will be 4v4. This not only aligns with LAOUT’s equity initiatives, but we also believe it will create a better playing experience for all. Especially with double the two-pointers! That’s right, endzone to endzone cross-gender completions are worth two; AND so are callahans! LeiOut just got a lot spicier. Luckily, we’re giving you a bye on Saturday to absorb all of the fun and catch up with those friends in another division. And building on last year’s vision, our infamous party will be held outdoors on the beach this year! This means there will be a beer tent available almost all day long for two days!

Finally, an update on LAOUT’s & SCYU’s shared goal of growing youth Ultimate in Los Angeles. Despite having to cancel the 2022 event, the LeiOut Task Force donated $1,400 from its reserves to help send LA’s first ever team – Birds of Play – to the Youth Club Championships in Blaine, MN. SCYU aims to build on this momentum in 2023 in addition to partnering with California Ultimate to run a series of clinics at various LA Parks.

Safety. Fun. Community. We can’t wait to have you back in Huntington Beach. From the darkness emerges LeiOut 2023! Moving forward together,

Grant Boyd

Tournament Director
