The American Equity Invite

Our mission as a youth girls Ultimate Frisbee group is to create a tournament environment that solely focuses on the youth girls division. While the opportunities for female-identifying and non-binary players have increased over the years, we still feel that we do not have the same access to Ultimate as our male-identifying counterparts. By hosting this unique tournament, we hope to highlight the strength of youth girls Ultimate nation-wide by catering to the needs of highly competitive teams all over the country. Our goal is not only to make a statement to those not involved with the youth girls division that there is immense talent, a relatively untapped market, and enormous potential in these young players, but also to provide a safe* and encouraging environment where female-identifying and non-binary youth can find further strength and confidence in their athleticism, competitiveness, and ability to lead. We plan to establish this positive tournament culture and environment by having this tournament run by a group of the people it is meant to benefit and by taking feedback throughout the tournament and planning process. 

We will use these funds to help teams from all over the country get to Washington DC, to provide food, necessary equipment, a trainer and first aid supplies, as well as insurance. We will also use it to fill gaps from sponsorships for field space and any other expenses that come up.
