Thank you for your help!

We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all our friends, alumni, family, and players who generously donated to the 2023 Pitt Ultimate Frisbee Fundraiser. Your support and contributions have made a tremendous impact on our team, and we are truly grateful for your generosity. Thanks to your donations, we have been able to secure vital resources, improve our training facilities, and provide opportunities for growth and development for our players. Your belief in our program and your willingness to contribute have strengthened our sense of community and motivation. 

We extend our heartfelt thanks for being an integral part of our journey and for helping us reach new heights. Your support has not only benefited our team, but has also fostered a spirit of camaraderie and dedication among our members. We are truly honored to have such incredible individuals like you in our corner. Thank you once again for your unwavering support and for making a positive difference in the lives of our players.

Pitt Men's Ultimate Makes Nationals!

May 19, 2023

I am excited to share with you that our team has achieved a major milestone by winning the regional championship, beating Penn State in the final. This victory has earned us a spot in the nationals tournament. 

As you know, the trip to Nationals incurs significant expenses for the team, including travel, accommodation, and equipment costs. To cover these expenses, we launched a fundraiser a few weeks ago, and I am pleased to report that it is off to an excellent start. Thanks to the generosity of many of our supporters, we have raised over $3,000 to date. 

However, we still need your support to reach our fundraising goal. Every contribution, no matter how big or small, makes a significant impact on our team's ability to compete at the highest level. Our team relies on the support of our community to achieve our goals, and we are grateful for any help that you can provide. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will keep you updated on our progress.

The Assist

This donation can help fill up one tank of gas on our drive to tournaments! 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 player. A donation of this size covers tournament food for the team for a day.



In ultimate frisbee, a bookend is when a defender gets a block, or forces a turnover, then scores a goal in the same possession. Bookends are a great way to fire up your teammates and change the momentum of a game. A donation of this size covers two rental vans for the team to travel to tournaments.


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 on 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.
