The Austin Torch are back in 2019!
The Torch is Austin’s professional womxn’s ultimate team! This team was ignited in 2018 by the Austin Ultimate Community in an effort to promote womxn in ultimate and showcase them to an audience that wouldn’t otherwise get the opportunity to watch fierce, elite womxn in action. From its inception, the community has taken a grass-roots approach to this team in terms of ownership, funding, and organization.
Now in it’s second year, the Torch are founding members of the new Premier Ultimate League, made up of eight teams playing regular season games and playoffs April thru June, 2019. Both the Torch and the PUL are non-profit, community-funded organizations dedicated to creating equitable playing opportunities for womxn in Ultimate. Interested in helping us fund the 2019 season?
