Known by our friends and families as Danger, we are the University of Pittsburgh’s Women’s Club Ultimate Team. Our team is comprised of 21 dedicated, enthusiastic, intelligent, hard-working athletes who love to play ultimate! We come from all over the country, and work hard to represent Pitt well.
We travel together to compete against other colleges in tournaments all across the country. These tournaments generally take place over weekends throughout the school year. Our competitive season is in the spring semester, where we attend three tournaments in addition to the Series.
The Series is comprised of Sectionals, Regionals, and finally, Nationals. In order to compete at Nationals, our team must win the Regionals tournament at the end of April. Danger is included in the Ohio Valley Region, and for the past four years we have placed within the top three teams of our region.
Last year, we achieved our goal to represent Pitt at College Nationals. Danger earned a bid for the Ohio Valley Region through our dominant play during the regular season. We continued to practice after school ended and traveled to Milwaukee, WI at the end of May to compete against the top 20 teams in the country.
Danger has already competed in two tournaments this season, Queen City Tune Up in North Carolina, and Commonwealth Cup in Virginia, taking second and first place, respectively. We are headed to Seattle at the end of March to compete against some of the top teams on the West Coast. This year Nationals is located in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Our hope is that you will Rally for Raleigh with us --- we are asking for your gracious support to help our team on our road to Nationals. We are beyond grateful for any donation given, which will help the team cover a variety of costs such as:

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.
A scoober is an upside down throw from across the chest. This is used by experienced throwers. It helps us throw through zone defense just like your donation helps pay for the registration fee for one player at Nationals.
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 $100 partially pays for a bid fee for a tournament.
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. Your donation of $250 will cover the cost of gas for all of our cars for a tournament.
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. $500 will pay for the team to attend a tournament.
