Events & Fundraising DirectorSonja Roden

Sonja has been “playing” Ultimate for about 16 years now and by “playing” we mean she shows up to games and plays with the puppies and babies while the rest of you actually play. She plans to spend her time on the board creating events that will help build a sense of community among players of all levels from beginners to elite. She hopes that LAOUT will be a place where everyone feels welcomed. “I mean, if y’all can put up with me you can deal with anyone.”

Membership & Outreach DirectorNahall Esteghamat

Nahall started playing ultimate with friends during high school for fun, but began playing more competitively during college. When other intramural sports were not competitive enough or as open and welcoming, the ultimate community was there to fill that gap, and for this reason, she still enjoys playing ultimate here in LA. When not playing frisbee, Nahall enjoys going on hikes, drinking coffee, and lounging with her cat watching bad Netflix shows.
