  • Ultimate Lovers, Grady Friends and Families, Kind-Hearted Citizens,
    Grady High School’s Ultimate Frisbee Team seeks your help.   We are Grady Ultimate Gauntlet and we seek to raise $7500 by April 30th, 2017 to assist in funding field rentals, tournament fees, and travel for the current season.
  • We are self-funded.  We are a club sport and are not funded through our high school’s sports budget.  Player fees range from $125-$250 and are kept intentionally low to ensure all players can participate.  We typically receive 95% financial participation by players and parents covering 70% of our costs. The remaining expenses are covered by donors and fundraising events.
