The purpose of PickupUltimate.com is to help people find and play pickup ultimate frisbee games. I wanted to create a place where people looking for games could find accurate, up-to-date information and game coordinators could easily publish that information. I also wanted to create a way for the communities around a game to stay connected and keep a running dialog about their game.
My main reason for developing this site was to give back to the greater Ultimate community. Ever since I started playing Ultimate I have been amazed and impressed by the community around it. My involvement in the Ultimate community has had a profound impact on my life socially, professionally, and personally. In Ultimate players I have found great friends, roommates, and girlfriends. Through Ultimate players I have found jobs, work, and networking contacts. With encouragement from Ultimate players I have become a much healthier person both physically and emotionally.
My life would not be what it is without the Ultimate community; I am grateful to be a part of it and honored to give something back.
