We are pleased to announce that the Minnesota Strike is joining the Premier Ultimate League for the 2020 Season!
After a successful first season in 2019, the Premier Ultimate League (PUL) – the first womxn’s professional ultimate league – has expanded from 8 to 12 teams for 2020. Following a competitive application process, the league announced that the new teams invited to join for 2020 are the Minnesota Strike, Milwaukee Monarchs, Washington D.C. Shadow, and Portland, ME Rising.
The Strike will be the first womxn’s professional ultimate team in Minnesota, and will soon announce a core group of committed players from local mixed, women’s and master’s teams.
The team is guided by a three part mission: to provide visibility and support for elite womxn ultimate players, to promote equity in sports, and to build a more diverse ultimate community in Minnesota, and is proud to prioritize youth outreach as a core value.
“The Strike will send the message to all the young players in Minnesota that there is a place for them within our sport. We’re excited to work with the Strike to provide more outreach than ever before in Minnesota.”Jake McKean, Program Director, Minnesota Ultimate.
