Nationals, Here We Come!

April 30, 2018

En Sabah Nur is officially on its way to Nationals! 


This past weekend, En Sabah Nur travelled to Columbus, OH to face the best teams in the Ohio Valley. After going 5-0 on the weekend, we squared off against Carnegie Mellon in the finals. After defeating a tough Mr. Yuk team 13 – 9, the boys of En Sabah Nur have secured their bid to Nationals.


Now is when the hard work we’ve been putting in all year starts to pay off. With only a month left before the competition, we are working hard to complete our goal of becoming National Champions. With only 7 days until the end of this campaign, we would like to thank everyone that has already donated and wanted to show our appreciation for your willingness to help. We are a little over halfway to our goal of $5,000, so we still have some ground to cover before we make it. Please consider sharing our page with any family, friends, or colleagues.  Any little bit helps. Thank you!

Choose a giving level


The Assist

This donation can help fill up one tank of gas on our drive to Milwaukee! The long road trips we take are spent jamming out, playing hot seat, and getting some much needed sleep. You can occasionally find one of our more studious athletes trying to catch up on some homework as well!


The Goal

A donation of this size covers the cost of a single player registration fee. Each player must be registered and rostered through USA Ultimate, which is the national governing body of collegiate ultimate. A registration fee covers the insurance costs and player packs that every player receives at the beginning of the tournament.


1.5x D

1.5x D, or help D, is a fundamental principle of Pitt’s defensive strategy. It requires a high level of field awareness and a strong game IQ to effectively cover your man while helping cover others. When effectively executed, you are acting as 1.5x defenders, not just 1 man. A donation of this size covers tournament food for the team for a day.


One Breath, One Mind

Before every tournament, game, or even practice, we gather in a huddle and perform some controlled breathing as a team to ground ourselves. Ultimate, like all sports, is one part physical, one part mental, and we put a lot of emphasis is building our mental game just as much as our physical. A donation of this size covers a hotel room for one tournament weekend.


In Lak’Ech

On En Sabah Nur, we use the motto In Lak’Ech, a mayan precept. In Lak’Ech means “you are my other me” a mindset we instill among ourselves to build an inseparable team chemistry. A donation of this size covers the cost of coaches’ accommodations (travel, room & board, food, etc) for one full weekend.
