To spread the game of Ultimate Disc throughout the world. To make “Ultimate Disc” a household name. To create scholastic recognition of the sport across the United States so all youth can be involved in the best game ever created.
To provide fans with a high-intensity, entertaining and safe professional sporting experience. To have that experience carry over into the fan’s everyday life, and spread to their friends and family. To engulf the media with outstanding feats of athleticism, sportsmanship and humility. To enrich the lives of the people around us.
“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice
