Nationals and Thank You!

May 20, 2019

Dear friends, family, alumni, and Frisbee enthusiasts,


Thank you for supporting us throughout our season both on and off the field! We cannot express how motivating and inspiring it was to have a huge sideline of supporters at both of our series tournaments, Sectionals and Regionals, in which we play some of our toughest games of the whole season.


After we earned the second bid at Ohio Valley Regionals… We’re going to Nationals! Austin, Texas here we come!


This past month we have been working hard at practice, in the gym, and on the track. Training during May is great not only to strengthen our bodies and improve our abilities as a team, but this month together also means more time with our beloved graduates and more opportunities for fun team-building activities like disc golf and picnics. One of our highlights of this month was our senior night, in which we showed our coaches and graduating seniors our immense appreciation for them. We were generously hosted by the Thornes for this memorable night, and it was a special way to remember to treasure every moment we have left with each other in our season.


May is truly the best time of the year, but our time together would not have been possible without all your support. Thank you to everyone for following us all on our journey thus far. Your generous donations helped us end our campaign raising $5,300, which was more than our goal of $5,000. We are incredibly lucky and grateful to have your kindness and support as we head into Nationals in Austin this Memorial Day Weekend. We will be one of just 20 college women’s teams competing at this elite tournament, and we hope to make you all proud!


As always, Hail to Pitt Ultimate and yee haw!

Dear Danger Friends and Family,


We did it; we secured our bid to Nationals! All the practices, film sessions, lifts, track workouts, and agility workouts prepared us to take on Texas!


A quick Regionals update: We got 2nd place by winning all of our games on Saturday and only losing out to our sister rivals Ohio State in the finals on Sunday (we’ll get them next time). Our sidelines were chock-full of Danger supporters. Thank you all for being awesome and making the trip out to Columbus!


We currently have the week off and most players are at home spending time with their families. On Tuesday we will begin the grind again. With a lot of new things to work on and just seven official practices left, we are determined to make the most of every moment.            


Off the field we are looking forward to the adventures May brings such as exploring the city together and potentially traveling to Lake Erie and Farm Flanagan.


Now more than ever your donations have been so important. Danger has never before participated in two flying tournaments in a year and flights to Austin, TX are fairly expensive for players to cover just themselves. Every donation means so much to us. Your generous support has made it possible for us to get this far and for that we cannot thank you enough. We hope we will make you all proud come Nationals this Memorial Day Weekend. As always, Hail to Pitt Ultimate!


Much love, Danger

Success at Sectionals!

April 18, 2019

Hello Danger Fam!


This past weekend Danger travelled to Allentown, PA for sectionals. Although we did a bit more traveling than playing due to Saturday’s weather cancellations, we still had loads of fun bonding with our teammates and families. Big shout out to the Bhatias and Schreibers for being such wonderful hosts and providing us with breakfast fuel to tackle our days.


Even though the fields were closed for Saturday's games, the weather cleared up and Danger took to the outdoors. We played croquet, explored Valley Forge, and had a lovely team dinner at the Schreiber's where we continued to enjoy the open air (this time by playing basketball, spikeball, and even some ultimate). Special guest appearances included long-time Danger supporters: the Normiles and Danger’s 2017 Callahan finalist Linda Morse!


After anxiously waiting Sunday morning, we finally found out that the Lehigh Fields were cleared for play. A first round bye gave us the exciting opportunity to cheer on our incredibly fun and flirty sister team, High Voltage. Then we played our friendly CMU neighbors, the Money Mellons, followed by games against Penn B, Drexel, and Penn State. We went 4-0 on Sunday to win our pool! This means we earned our bid to Regionals and will not be returning to Allentown next weekend to finish out the tournament. Danger is thankful to use the weekend to focus on our quickly approaching final exams!


It was wonderful to see so many Danger supporters cheering us on at Sectionals (spotted on the sideline were the Bjanes, Boyds, Dawsons, Manis, Picones, and Pisones). We are beyond grateful for all of the snacks, cookies, sandwiches, and pictures you all generously provided. Another big thanks to everyone for all your support and donations to the team thus far! Danger truly has the BEST fans and we love having you all along for the ride. Next stop, Columbus!



Pitt Women’s Ultimate

Choose a giving level



The backhand is the throw you learn first. It may seem simple, but it is one of the most important throws a player can master. Your donation of $25 helps fill up two cars with gas on the way to our tournaments.



The flick throw is usually the second throw a player learns. Once mastered, it allows players to throw trickier throws, and more successfully play against the defense. Your donation of $50 will cover the cost of a hotel room for one night.


Lefty Backhand

Lefty backhand--a favorite of Head Coach Ben Banyas--is a clever way to trip up the mark and get off those quick give-and-goes. Like the lefty backhand, $75 is a great way to give so that a player can go to Nationals.



A scoober is an upside down throw from across the chest. This is used by experienced throwers. Your donation of $100 partially pays for a bid fee for a tournament.



The hammer is an inverted over-the-head-throw. It is a tricky throw, but also one of the most fulfilling feelings upon completion. Your donation of $250 will cover the cost of gas for all of our cars for a tournament.


Layout D

Though not a type of throw, a layout D is one of the most exciting and important defensive moves a player can make on the field. $500 will pay for the team to attend a tournament like Northwest Challenge.



A greatest is THE ultimate play in a game - it is when a player is in the air and catches the disc out of bounds, but manages to throw the disc back in bounds before hitting the grass. Another player is then there in the end zone to catch the disc for the score. A gift of $1,000 pays for two flights for cross country tournaments.
