To grow the sport of Ultimate in the Los Angeles area by providing playing opportunities for people of all skill levels while promoting Spirit of the Game.
LAOUT’s vision is to create an inclusive, fun, and empowering community for all Ultimate players in Los Angeles, to turn LA into an Ultimate destination as we give back to our community at large, and to offer athletic, social, and educational opportunities with and for people who are as diverse as the city in which we play.
- Create diverse & sustainable playing opportunities for more people in the greater Los Angeles community.
- Create a community that more accurately reflects the city in which we live (i.e. the greater Los Angeles area).
- Formalize the LAOUT Board Structure for Long-Term Leadership & Growth.
- Utilize marketing & outreach to increase involvement in LAOUT.
Equity, Diversity, & Inclusion – LAOUT is home to all genders, sexuality, races, and religions; and we will not stand for hatred or discrimination of any kind. We will strive for diversity both on our Board and in the community at large.
Good Stewardship – there is a remarkable amount of leadership opportunity available in Ultimate (i.e. team captains, community organizers, committees, task forces, volunteers, & coaches). LAOUT should exemplify and teach good stewardship; not just of monetary resources, but of the resources we use as a community like equipment and fields.
Excellence – LAOUT is not only looking to develop programs and our players, but we are looking to develop them well. This means setting tangible benchmarks, building skill, running great events, and developing best practices in our communities.
