Indianapolis Red has felt enraged, saddened, and frustrated from the senseless murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Dreasjon Reed, and so many more. Red stands with and stands up for the people who have had to endure racism, police brutality, and systemic oppression.
Indianapolis (Indy) Red is a professional ultimate team and a part of the Premier Ultimate League (PUL). Red played in the inaugural season of the womxn’s professional league in 2018. We are based out of Indianapolis, IN but include players from the surrounding region. We are a 501(c)(3) organization.
Inspire and create opportunities for womxn* and non-binary athletes to showcase their highest level talent. Womxn belong in athletics and young womxn deserve to dream without boundaries.
Young womxn often have a difficult time envisioning themselves in high level athletics because women in sports are drastically under-represented in the media and in our slowly evolving culture. We want to #BeTheChange and alter this narrative.
Promote and provide visibility for womxn athletes in ultimate at the highest levels of the exciting and unique flying disc sport in the Indianapolis and Cincinnati region. We seek to accomplish this by:
- Increasing visibility for the best womxn ultimate players with professional games and other media coverage
- Providing resources for athletes to play at the highest level without needing personal disposable income
- Supporting the community by actively teaching and advocating for girls in ultimate
- Developing confidence in athletes by promoting the self-advocacy and conflict resolution inherent to ultimate’s Spirit of the Game principle
- Fostering mentorship through coaching and peer networks to build local adult and youth ultimate communities
- Creating a welcoming family environment for the spectator experience
