Help Shape The Future Of USA Ultimate

Last year, USA Ultimate gathered input from a variety of sources, including members of the ultimate community like yourself, on key priorities for their next strategic plan. From that feedback, 10 areas of focus were identified. Now they want to learn how you view these areas’ relative importance, get your feedback on some current ideas and see what other big thoughts you might have that could positively impact our sport’s future if implemented.

Please take a moment to give voice to your values by filling out this survey.

They will use this information to help develop the next USAU strategic plan. The plan will span three years (2019-21) and will be unveiled at ultimate’s 50th Anniversary Reunion and Celebration this fall in San Diego.

This survey should take about 15-25 minutes to complete and all responses are anonymous.

 

Seattle Women Inducted into USAU Hall of Fame!

Congratulations to Seattle's latest members of the USA Ultimate Hall Of Fame, Mary Lowry and Pam Kraus! As players, coaches and leaders, Pam and Mary exemplify the spirit and soul of Seattle ultimate.

Mary has been the driving force behind the organization of youth ultimate​ ​in Seattle​ ​for over 30 years. As a founder of the first youth leagues in the area, one of the organizers behind Spring Reign,​ ​and the coach of the first-ever World's high school girls team for the UPA, Mary has lead the way for the growth of the sport at every level. She is also an accomplished player, winning World Championships in both ultimate and freestyle. It's safe to say that Seattle's ultimate scene would not be where it is without her influence.

Pam boasts an equally impressive list of accomplishments and her commitment to the growth of DiscNW has been inspiring for many. A three-time world champion as a player, Pam has also coached at every level of youth ultimate and served for many years on the DiscNW board. After starting the local masters women's team, Mint, she returned a few years later to coach them to nationals!

DiscNW appreciates all that Mary and Pam have done and continue to do for the sport here the Northwest. If you see them on the field make sure to thank them for their tireless commitment to ultimate and SOTG!​
