Nearly two years ago now I discovered an exciting new sport, Ultimate Frisbee. I got a message from one of my family friends asking if I was interested in playing for the Under 18 Victorian Team. I jumped at the opportunity, as it fit in perfectly with the off-season of rowing and the chance to represent Victoria was very exciting. I played Australian Youth Ultimate Championships for my state and we won bronze! I was hooked instantly.
I began playing as much as I could, filling in on teams that needed spare players and getting involved in what became my club team, Bauhaus Ultimate, based in Brunswick, Melbourne.
As my skills developed, my goals for my ultimate frisbee career became bigger and bigger. After making captain of the Victorian team I had began playing with the previous year, I was sure I could go further. My new goal was to make the Australian team.
That dream came true...
I have been selected for the Australian Under 20 Women's Ultimate Frisbee Team -called Terra. This means I will travel to Ontario, Canada in August this year to compete at the World Junior Ultimate Championships for the title of best junior team in the world. By the time we arrive in Canada, we will have come together 4 times for training camps in Melbourne and Sydney. In between camps it is up to us to complete our own training in preparation for Worlds.
As Ultimate Frisbee is such a small sport, we do not receive any funding. The calculated costs to cover flights, accommodation, uniform, tournament fees, pre-tour, training camps and more is around $6000. Any help I can get would mean the world to me, so please donate! All contributions will get me another step further to Canada.
Thanks a ton for your support so far, every little bit is greatly appreciated!
