The Girls’ Ultimate Movement (GUM) is a community-wide outreach program designed to increase girls’ participation in the sport of ultimate. Currently, only about a quarter of all USA Ultimate youth members are female, but the sport is an excellent outlet for young girls. With its emphasis on Spirit of the Game and tenets of equity and inclusiveness, ultimate can help girls become amazing athletes, leaders, and contributors to society.
Girls’ Ultimate Movement (GUM) recognizes many players use different terms to define their gender or gender identity. GUM is inclusive of youth identifying as female, non-binary, gender fluid, transgender, and/or using other self-identifying terms.
Sunday March 20th: High School "Bring a friend" clinic
The goal of these clinics is FUN and connection. Registration opens at 9:45 AM, the clinic runs from 10 AM to 12 PM. There will be different stations that focus on different skills that players will rotate through. Beginners welcome! Seasoned players welcome! Let's build the girl's youth network of Ultimate in Philadelphia!
All participants receive discs and other swag. We follow the COVID-19 recommendations of Philadelphia and PADA. We strive to keep the GUM field dog-free as well.
Cheers and layouts--Coach Joni
