The Color of Ultimate: ATL is a showcase game celebrating ultimate's most talented players of color. It is hosted by the Atlanta Flying Disc Club (AFDC) Diversity and Inclusion Committee, in partnership with the Atlanta Hustle and the Atlanta Soul.
The goals of the game are to bring awareness about the socioeconomic and racial inequity of the sport of ultimate, showcase the talent of players of color in the sport, and expose our sport to those outside of our community while encouraging more people of color to play ultimate.
The exhibition game, which will also be live-streamed(!) by the Atlanta Hustle, will take place on Saturday, June 22nd at 7:00 pm at St Pius X.
The day of the game, we plan to host a player lunch, meet 'n greet, and directed discussion so players can get to know each other and reflect on why they are playing in the game. While attendance at these events is not mandatory to play in the game, attendance at such events is encouraged.
We want the best players--regardless of location--to apply and ultimately play in the game. All players will be provided a meal on Saturday afternoon. We can also provide housing for visiting players. If you require financial assistance or are able to offer it, please let us know.
Applications are rolling, and players will be notified of application decisions by at latest May 18th. Good luck!!
