Help Washington Women Ultimate Frisbee be Accessible to All

Embedded image permalink

We are a college ultimate frisbee program, comprised of a traveling team Element, and a local team Big Bang. We are looking to subsidize the cost of playing to make it accessible for everyone. We are looking to raise $10,000 to cover the costs of:

  • driving to local tournaments (Element drives to 5 tournaments, Big Bang to 4)
  • discs, cones and agility ladders
  • Uniforms
  • Trainers
  • **Any extra money will be put toward subsidizing plane tickets for Element players in need

What We Do

We are a student led ultimate frisbee club at the University of Washington. The game and our team stands on the framework of personal responsibility, cooperation, and self officiation.  

For 8 years in a row Element has competed at the college national championships, winning gold in 2012, and finishing third in 2014. Meanwhile Big Bang has played, practiced, developed, and competed right along side!

First team meeting: We decided our team values: Pace, Passion, Phamily

Costs Breakdown

As a club we spend a lot of money to play.


 As Element players we spend even more, to buy our own personal plane tickets.

Plane Tickets for Element (Stanford ~$300, Prez Day ~$300, Nationals ~$500: x23 teammates) =$25,300


Washington Women Ultimate Frisbee Objectives:

Grow Community Oriented Players

  • We partner with All Girl Everything Ultimate Program in the fall. This engages middle and high school players with college players, creates connections and hopefully inspires the next generation of college ultimate players!

Embedded image permalink

  • In early spring we give some high school students the opportunity to go to college for a day! We set up a shadowing program with some of our players, where they high schooler has the opportunity to sit in on classes and join us at practice. 
  • Finally in late spring we host UpDawg is a co-ed youth hat tournament. UpDawg puts a strong emphasis on coming together to celebrate spirited play.


Compete With Teams Around The Nation

We want to be able to play and compete with any team in the nation. And this year we will prove it to you!

Partners

We currently are partnered with VCUltimate who provide our swag, Runa Clean Energy who fuels us, and Ren Fitness who makes us strong!

Washington Women's Ultimate Frisbee campaign has launched! 

  Published on Monday, Feb. 1, 2016 at 06:48 PM (PST)

Welcome to Washington Women's Ultimate Frisbee fundraising campaign; we are incredibly excited to get started! 

                        

Thank you to the fantastic leadership team who has worked hard during the initial stages of this campaign to get it up and running and to the fundraising champions that make this project possible.

Today marks the first day of our 30-day campaign. Check out our campaign page for information on what we do and what we hope to accomplish with your support. Ultimately, when it comes down to what ultimate means to us as players is that "it's more than just a sports team, it's really a family" (Cami Canter, Senior).

We recently competed in the Bellingham Invite tournament where we played against five of the greatest college women's ultimate teams in the Pacific Northwest. Check out our highlights video to see us in action and please consider donating to help fund our team in competing in more tournaments like this! Our goal is to be 50% funded in this first week. Help us #maxout our goal!                        

Thank you for your support!
