Hi! I'm Stacy Gaskill and I'm on my 2nd year of reaching my goals of competing in the 2022 Winter Olympics in Snowboarding and a future Summer Olympics in Ultimate Frisbee. I was named to the US Snowboarding Team in 2018 in Boardercross (SBX). The 2018-19 Season was my 1st on the SBX World Cup. I started 30th, ended up 20th, with my best result being 12th where I beat the 2018 Olympic Silver medalist twice. Jake Vedder & I finished 9th in the Mixed SBX event at the 2019 Snowboard World Championships. Unfortunately at the March World Cup (WC) in Spain I sustained a season ending injury shattering my wrist. As a result, I missed the final WC and the 2019 Junior World Championships, so my standing dropped to 25th for the year. Recently I had my metal plate and screws removed from my wrist and I'm excited to compete on the SBX World Cup circuit in December. In 2018 and again in 2019, I received the prestigious Sportswoman of Colorado for Snowboarding Award. A great honor for me!
But never fear, my wrist injury did not prevent me from competing in the 2019 U24 Ultimate Frisbee World Championships this past July! After lots of physical therapy and training, I was able to compete with the USA U24 Women's Ultimate Team where we were undefeated and earned the Gold as World Champions! (I competed on the U20 Women's Ultimate Team in 2018 where we also won the Gold at the 2018 U20 Ultimate World Championships!)
I'm the youngest player for the 2nd year on Denver's top Women's Ultimate Team, Molly Brown, which finished 2nd at the Pro Championships and 6th at the 2019 Club Nationals. I will be playing on the University of Colorado's Women's Ultimate A team, Quandary, during the Spring of 2020. Playing Ultimate at the top level is giving me amazing experience and skills that I hope to use representing US Ultimate at the 2028 Summer Olympics. In the meantime, I'm honored to be to 1 of 28 men & women selected from across the US to be a role model and promote Ultimate Frisbee at the Beach of Dreams Youth Invite in January 2020.
As a US Snowboard Development Team and US Ultimate Team member, I receive no funding from either teams and therefore need to raise money to cover my training, traveling, equipment, and competition fees. Hopefully, if I can raise enough money I'll be able to train full-time and move up to the B and eventual A team where my expenses will be covered in the future. But it takes time, commitment, determination, grit, and dedication to reach those goals.
Therefore, I'm launching a fundraising campaign in hopes of covering the costs of training & competing at an elite level in both sports! Become a part of #StacyStrong2022, and join me on my athletic journey and my Olympic Dreams! Any donation amount is appreciated!
