Mission Statement

The Bay Area Disc Association strengthens the Ultimate community by creating opportunities for youth, club and adult recreational athletes to interact, develop and compete. We foster positive playing and learning experiences and embrace Spirit of the Game in all aspects of our work and play.

Description

Bay Area Disc Association was founded in 2008 by the leaders of the San Francisco Ultimate League, San Francisco Ultimate Club, Bay Area Youth Ultimate, East Bay Ultimate League and Marin Ultimate Summer League.

By combining under a single organization, the new Bay Area Disc Association was able to consolidate governance, resources, finances, leadership and planning under a single governing Board of Directors. We suddenly had better capacity to support youth Ultimate in the Bay Area, recruit coaches, foster new programs and create new teams. Through shared finances, we gained financial leverage to launch new leagues, tournaments, better field management, and paid staff.

In 2010, our first paid employee was hired to run youth programs, and he was our only employee until 2015, when we hired an Adult Program Manager and Executive Director. Since 2015, the staff has driven the growth of the rest of the organization, which has allowed us to hire more staff members, who in turn have worked hard expand and support the ultimate community more than ever before in 2016-17.

As of January 2018, Bay Area Disc will have 5 full-time paid staff members, more than 100 distinct ultimate programs per year across the region, incredible momentum behind the growth of ultimate, and a group of committed and professional Board of Directors strategically guiding our nonprofit mission.
