Unlike other U.S. National Teams, the athletes selected to the World Games roster are fully funded by USA Ultimate and its generous sponsors and supporters. And those costs can add up fast. Sending a team of 20 athletes, coaches and support staff around the world for training and competition requires a significant investment – especially for a 501c(3) nonprofit national governing body of amateur sport like USA Ultimate.
To proudly represent the United States in international competition, our World Games athletes instead pay with blood, sweat and tears. USA Ultimate is proud to allow these athletes to focus solely on their training and preparation for the World Games, and not the financial burden that is inherent to all elite-level amateur sports like ultimate.
Help us support the World Games teams and other U.S. National Teams as well as USA Ultimate programs like the Girls’ Ultimate Movement, Play it Forward and more!
Please consider donating in support of these athletes who represent the United States and the sport of ultimate.
