We here at MPFPT recognize the disparity in regards of participation, coverage, and encouragement of gender equality when it comes to ultimate. We love what GUM is doing and we have decided to help. On top of the $1,000 we have donated already, we are also pledging a portion of all subscriptions to GUM. We’re also looking forward to helping with clinics and promotions with GUM in 2017.

The numbers speak for themselves: 30% of women account for the ultimate playing population. Even fewer focus on proper strength training. We want to help female athletes reach their peak potential while also reducing the risk of injury.  You may have heard that studies show women are 3-8x more likely to sustain an non-contact ACL injury than men.  We teach time tested injury-reduction strategies than can help change such rates within ultimate.  While most of our programs can be done by either gender, we’re enlisting Octavia “Opi” Payne and Kaela Jorgenson as ambassadors and are to be featured in more female oriented strength programs for 2017. We want to help all female athletes Raise the Bar and Level the Playing Field.
