We (the Grand Rapids White Lighting Ultimate Frisbee Team) are funraising for a tournament on the beach in in Chicago. Our longer distance tournaments are too costly to spread among the high school athletes. Our
first major, long distance tournament is in Chicago, Illinois July 13-14th other high school teams.
We do our best to keep our costs as low as possible for our athletes, however we are in desperate need of donors and sponsors for this team. Without financial support, this team will not be able to play to its full
potential. We are in DESPERATE need of DONORS AND SPONSORS for this team. The entrance fee is 360 dollars to enter a team, and the gas to drive to Chicago is another 300 dollars. Once again, this is too much of a cost to split up amongst the team.

ABOUT THE TEAM: A quote from MArcus, a player on the team. " Our Grand Rapids Area team, newly dubbed “White Lightning,” started out as a group of great athletes who wanted to learn a new sport and fill some idle time in the summer. On the 20thhad never even attempted a forehand pass (“flick”), and even my standard backhand needed improvement. Two weeks later, I played my first high school game having only missed 2 of my 25-30+ flick passes due to wet conditions. Our coach, Mike “Zaags” Zaagman, told me in our first official practice that he wanted me to learn in two weeks what he learned in three years. He expected the same out of all of our rookies, and he
consistently shows us that he has full faith in our ability to do more be better. He is a 22-year-old coach
who shows coaching talent far beyond his years, and he has led me to a passion for ultimate that (admittedly) may just surpass my passionfor rugby- the sport that made me who I am today."
