Alyssa first discovered ultimate her freshman year of college at Missouri State University in Springfield, MO. Initially it was not the sport that she fell in love with, but the people and the culture that surrounded it. From day one she felt welcomed and a part of the team. The inclusiveness was undeniable. Though she has a passion for the game, it is her teammates that keep her excited to come back season after season. She now enjoys spending her summers playing club with the St. Louis mixed team, Chalice. Recently, Alyssa has been dedicating her time to coaching and growing the local women’s high school program. She is in the process of establishing the first women’s youth club team out of St. Louis and is thrilled to take them to the Youth Club Championships this summer. She hopes to provide these young women with the same sense of community and love for the game that she has. Alyssa is excited for her first summer with Ultimate Peace and for the opportunity to continue to spread her passion for the game.
