When thinking about my topic for the research paper at first I was leaning towards doing something about concussions in sports, and then concussions in ultimate frisbee. But then I had the idea of writing about Women in ultimate frisbee. In Minnesota we have a program called the Girls Ultimate Play Initiative that works on gender equity in the sport and getting women involved. This is something I felt passionate about that I could write my research essay on it. Women are very under represented in ultimate frisbee in that #1 there is only a mens professional league. #2 In Minnesota getting even just high school female identifying players to join can be a struggle. I believe this is directly related to the fact that there are no professional’s for young female identifying players to look up to. I am very excited to write about this topic because I believe I have a good understanding of it but I am a little worried about getting notable sources.
