About Us

Grit is an elite club team from Washington, D.C. that plays in USAU’s Women’s Division. The team was founded in 2015 and we are entering our eighth season. This year we took 13th place at Nationals and we are excited to build on our 2022 season.

Our goal is to create an inclusive team environment where we can thrive and grow as players, people, and citizens. Our team values include:

  • Grit makes it a priority to keep Ultimate affordable and accessible for everyone. We offer sliding scale dues and provide financial assistance to players as needed.
  • Everyone on Grit tries out for the team every year.
  • We expect the team to engage with topics around racial justice and equity in ultimate and put some time toward team discussions and community service.
  • We love being part of the DMV ultimate community! We collaborate with and celebrate other local club teams, especially our friends who also play in the Women’s division.

We are always looking for new recruits. If you’d like to try out for Grit 2023, please email gritultimate@gmail.com to get in touch and participate in offseason training opportunities and social events!
