About Us

Grit Happens.

Team History: Grit was founded in 2015, and we are entering our 3rd season.

Grit was born out of a strong desire for more opportunities to play competitive women’s ultimate in the Washington, DC area. The team strives to be as competitive and hard-working as possible while still upholding the values of Spirit of the Game and fostering the women’s ultimate community in DC. With a squad of talented players, strong work ethic, and positive team attitude, Grit’s inaugural season turned out to be a great success. Now we’re ready to take on 2017! Grit don’t quit!

Coaches: Sam McClellan and Matt Broaddus

Captains: Katherine “Bucky” Buckingham and Jacqui “Tink” Wagner

Team Goals: Grit is a competitive Top Select women’s club team with a focus on cultivating a positive culture that enables individual and team growth.

Our priorities for this season are:
