We are the Colorado College Women's Ultimate Frisbee team named Lysistrata's Tools ("Strata" for short). As a Division-I club sport, we represent CC around the country and compete against teams from schools over more than 33 times the size of CC. We have traveled everywhere from California to North Carolina for tournaments, and while we are fortunate enough to receive resources from CC, there are expenses that our team must cover. We are hoping this CC Crowdfunding campaign will help us reach our goal of $7,000. The money we raise will go toward flights, ground transportation, accommodations, uniforms, and to ensure that any Strata player can travel with the team regardless of her financial situation. With this and the future of the team in mind, we hope that friends, family, and alumni will help Strata reach our goal and allow us to carry on our love of Ultimate.
Who We Are:
Colorado College’s Women’s Ultimate team, Lysistrata’s Tools (also known as “Strata”), is a group of spirited, passionate, hardworking women who are devoted to playing the great sport of Ultimate. From our founding in 1992, our team has been dedicated to the spirit of the game, team cohesion, working hard, and having fun in the process. Ultimate Frisbee is a unique sport that can reach very high levels of competition without sacrificing spirit, respect, and fun. Coming from a small, liberal arts school, we have a reputation as an underdog. In the past four years we have qualified for D-I College Nationals Championships twice and proved that we are a serious, elite team that can compete with the best in the country.
What We Are Doing/ Why Support Us:
Strata is invited to several tournaments annually, and our ability to attend depends upon our team funds. We are grateful to the Colorado College Athletics Department for their support of our team, yet due to the nature of club sports, the school cannot cover all of our team expenses. Therefore, we are reaching out to friends and family for contributions to help us continue our participation in the national Ultimate scene. Funds will go primarily toward transportation costs for our team, including our coaches Emily Woolridge and Ali Hartley, team accommodations, and uniforms. Most of our tournaments are out-of-state and travel costs add up quickly! Therefore, we are hoping to raise $7,000 to make sure that anyone can be on Strata and participate regardless of her financial situation.
