What's behind the First Annual Jillz Jamboree?
The sport of Ultimate is growing quickly and we are so excited to both watch and be a part of that growth as we continue to work towards furthering the legitimacy of the sport and its deepened collegiate recognition.

We are working on promoting this tournament to both D-I and D-III men's college teams looking for a solid, middle-of-the-season, sanctioned tournament. There are still bids available and we would love to have as many as we can (cap at 16)! Teams can find additional information via our interest form (https://goo.gl/forms/bmdPebhkN3fMJM152).

This will both aid our men's and women's programs at the school and do a great deal to show our school that its investment is being well utilized. We have a few specific goals for what we hope this tournament an help accomplish:
