One other ultimate announcement! Mainly for the ladies, but guys - feel free to pass this along!


Sharon and Karolyn will be hosting women’s ultimate frisbee workshops/pick up twice a month focused on developing skills and increasing knowledge necessary to elevate your game. These sessions are open to all female-matching (those who tend to mark up against female identifying players), no experience necessary. 

The first workshop will be at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, October 13th, location TBD (somewhere in Irvine).

Interested? Fill out this form and tell us a little bit about yourself. Feel free to send any questions or comments to ocwomens...@gmail.com. And tell all your friends!


Give me the details

A few of us have noticed that mixed ultimate games in Orange County consistently have an unproportionally higher number of men than women who participate, which results in mixed games that are not truly mixed. Rather than the typical 4:3 or 3:4 male-matching:female-matching ratios for mixed ultimate, we end up with 5:2 or even 6:1. 

We feel that there may be a couple big contributing factors to this imbalance:

  1. There are just fewer female-matching players in OC 
  2. There are many female-matching players who do not enjoy playing in a male-dominated environment

The goal of these workshops and pickups is to help push gender equity and equality in the OC ultimate scene. The hope is that these workshops create an environment in which women can improve skills, gain confidence, and have fun! Workshops will be structured with players of all levels in mind. If there are specific skills you would like to improve on, let us know!

The first workshop will be at 5:30 PM on Wednesday, October 13th, location TBD (somewhere in Irvine).

Our ultimate goal is to grow the community of women ultimate players in OC so feel free to pass this message along to any ladies you think would enjoy learning the sport!

Hope to see you next week!

Sharon & Karolyn
