...and college bid allocations and supporting young women's ultimate in nyc
Check out this super video from Skyd of the Northwest Challenge! Great highlights and reflections from the players.
Speaking of the Northwest, an interesting conversation developed in the Ultimate Blogosphere about the fact that the Northwest has 6 of the 20 bids for College Nationals. Read more:

It's true that 6 bids is a lot for one region, and it's true that traveling affects poor college students financially, emotionally, and academically, but 6 bids is also an indication of general inequality in the women's college and youth divisions. One way we can help battle this inequality, especially for the Metro East, is supporting our young ladies here at home!
You can help support college and youth ultimate, especially women's!, in New York by coaching women's, recruiting and retaining women to Ultimate, donating money to teams and leagues, and volunteering your time! There are many ways to get involved and we could use a little lovin'.
If you have questions on how to get involved, feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact DiscNY at
Check out this article from Lou Burruss on promoting spirit in the college level. Some good food for thought with Oregon, Washington, and UBC committing to the practice of spirit circles for the rest of the season. Perhaps we'll be seeing more spirit circles during the club season this year?! :)
