Take the Field

Take the Field  is a new young women’s empowerment program for girls in grades 7-12 put together as a collaboration between Triangle Youth Ultimate, Emily K Center, and Without Limits.  The program teaches leadership skills along side with Ultimate Frisbee skills to girls in North Carolina.  The participants will meet a series of local women who will give classroom sessions about a variety of topics such as healthy lifestyles, communication tactics, and decision making.  Then the girls will participate in outside field instruction where they will learn the basics of Ultimate.  The program will culminate with the girls applying their leadership and life skills to organize Ultimate clinics of their own to reach youth in grades 3-6.

No prior Ultimate experience is necessary for participation in the program.  In the inaugural year, Take the Field will be offered free of cost to participants. The sessions will take place in the Durham / Chapel Hill area.
