Danie Proby is known for despising free-time. She co-founded the only Ultimate Frisbee Academy in Canada (Elevate Ultimate), is a high school physical education teacher, and is pursuing her masters in High Performance Coaching and Technical Leadership at UBC. Finding creative ways to teach the sport to young people is her life passion.
She grew up in the small town of Gibsons, B.C. Canada where she was first introduced to the sport of Ultimate where young and old would come together to play with a Frisbee and not keep score. She found Ultimate again at the University of Victoria and led the team to win Canadian College Championships and also made the five year dream of making it to USAU College Nationals a reality in her final year. She played for Skysharks, Traffic, SHHippos, and numerous other teams over the years and coaches any team she can get her hands on. Being a part of UP for the sixth year in a row is a dream come true!
