Statistical Analysis On The Gender Composition Of Mixed Ultimate
The sport of Ultimate is unique in that it has a coed division, commonly known as the mixed division. According to the current rule of play as outlined by USA Ultimate, each team may have a maximum of seven players on the field. In the mixed division, teams follow a prescribed gender ratio which is determined at the beginning of each point. Teams may either choose to play 4 men and 3 women (hereby referred to as 4:3) or 3 men and 4 women (hereby referred to as 3:4). Furthermore, each team has a maximum roster limit of 27 total players. There are no current limitations on how many of each gender are permitted per roster. Because there are significantly more male players than female players, 4:3 is most often accepted as the default gender ratio and teams tend to roster more male players than female. This study aims to analyze the gender composition of select teams’ rosters, any variation between male and female subgroups of in-game statistics, and any correlation between gender and win percentage.
