Allegra is from Seattle, WA and can’t wait to coach at camp UP! She first discovered Ultimate in 6th grade, and now plays as a sophomore on Syzygy at Carleton College. On the field, she is a cutter who loves sprinting deep and getting up in the air. Allegra is passionate about using sport to find similarities among differences and to break down barriers, and has coached soccer in Costa Rica and South Africa. Off the field, she loves to bake yummy pastries, read mystery novels, and look at rocks as she pursues a Geology major.
Selena started playing Ultimate at Grady High School in Atlanta, Georgia and now plays on the UNC Pleiades team. She has always been attracted to the sport because of the spirit, energy, and cool people involved in the community. She is studying Public Health with a possible minor in Spanish at UNC, Chapel Hill. She loves camp and the outdoors more than anything!
Claire discovered Ultimate in 2010 when she was placed on her summer camp’s Ultimate Frisbee team instead of the dance team. It was the best second choice she ever got! The first (and only) sport she has ever played, Ultimate changed Claire’s life as she continued to play throughout summer camp, high school, college, and local summer leagues. This sport has given her the confidence to lead a group of people as a handler on the field, it has encouraged her to be physically active, and it has given her a key to an amazingly welcoming and passionate international community! Claire is also passionate about loose-leaf tea, public speaking, and live music. After graduating from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in Communications, Claire spent a couple months working at a farmers’ market before coming to Israel to study, and she is so excited to be at UP this summer!
