S-T-R-A-T-A THIS IS STRATA!
Who are we?
We are Lysistrata's Tools, Colorado College's women's ultimate frisbee team. For the third time in our team's history, we have qualified for the DI Women's Ultimate National College Championships.
This year, Nationals is being held in Raleigh, North Carolina. Being a club team, we will not get all of the funding necessary for all 25 players on our team to participate in this tournament, so we are asking you to help us get there! Making it to nationals has been our team's goal since September, and our hard work has finally paid off. This past weekend we traveled to Kansas City, MO where we finished third at the Regional tournament.
How will we use the funds?
We need help buying plane tickets for our team to fly from Denver to Raleigh for our tournament over Memorial Day weekend. We have 25 players on our roster and each plane ticket costs about $350. We will also be using the money for rental cars and hotels for once we are in North Carolina.
In light of the recent passing of House Bill 2 in North Carolina that allows for discrimination based on gender and sexuality, Strata has committed to contributing 5-10% of the money received to an organization that works to protect LGBTQIA rights in North Carolina.

Strata supports inclusivity and equity both on and off the field. Ultimate Frisbee is a game founded on fairplay and collaboration that strives to create a safe place for those of all identities to compete together.
We love this game, and are honored and proud to be one of the top 20 teams in the nation. Please help us compete one more time at the the D-I National Championships!!!
