Working Mission Statement

Here is the current working mission statement for Valley Ultimate. The final version will be set after our next meeting on 4/21.

The mission of Valley Ultimate is to promote and grow the sport of Ultimate in western Massachusetts and the Connecticut River Valley. Our focus is to strengthen the Ultimate community by documenting, encouraging and creating opportunities for all levels of play.

Valley Ultimate serves as a resource for individuals seeking opportunities to play; teams seeking players, coaches and competition; and leagues and tournaments seeking participants.

Valley Ultimate is committed to developing and supporting increased youth participation in the community, and encourages positive playing and learning experiences that embrace Spirit of the Game.
