Pritzker College Prep is a small public high school in Chicago's Hermosa neighborhood. Three years ago we started an ultimate frisbee team. We had no fields, no discs, and none of our 13 students had played the game before. We built a system practicing daily, running drills and sprints, hitting the weight room and the stairs. Our second year we made it to the Chicago city championship.
This year our program has grown to include both varsity and JV teams and more than 30 players. Our varsity team was accepted to play the USA Ultimate Central Region Championships. This is the absolute highest level of play for high school teams. We will be playing against some of the largest, most affluent high schools in the midwest with the most established ultimate programs in the country.
We will be taking 18 players for the two day tournament in Cincinnati, OH - 300 miles from the west side of Chicago. To get there we need your help - for renting busses to drive, reserving hotels, buying the mandatory matching shorts to compete, covering the player fees, feeding the team and more.
Thank you so much for your support, you are helping our students have the experience of a lifetime!

The total cost of the trip is about $3900 (depending on gas prices), broken down below. We originally set a goal of $1,000 because we thought it was manageable. Since the outpouring of support has been so amazing we have raised our goal to $2000.
