States is happening May 24th and 25, and SHOCKINGLY (and excitingly!!!) it's the first year that States has a girls division -- schools like Stuyvesant and Beacon who have had strong women's programs in the past finally get an opportunity to compete against other girls' teams at States. This year at States, more girls will be playing than ever thanks to the newly added division.
One team, Discord, is a group thrown together from different schools over the past couple weeks, bringing together young ladies who just want to play some Ultimate but don't have a team or the resources to do so from their school.
We want to make sure that all girls get a chance to participate in this year's State competition! Because the newly-formed, multi-school team doesn't have many resources available to them, Julie Sussman, elite ultimate player and New York youth ultimate advocate, has been spearheading a movement through DiscNY to get the $275 tournament fee paid for. Please go to discny.org to donate -- it's a small, easy, tangible, personal AND tax deductible way to help promote girls' ultimate!
