The UNCW Seaweed Ultimate team was founded in 1989 and has since been a dominant program in the Atlantic Coast Region. We have been unable to compete in tournaments since the end of 2019, but this year we have been approved to travel and compete in tournaments once again. We are eager to be able to represent UNCW and the Seaweed Ultimate mentality, drive and work ethic once again.
What We Do
In a competitive season, Seaweed Ultimate competes in sanctioned tournaments throughout the East Coast, where each player can run 20 or more miles over 7 games. Seaweed will compete in 4 to 5 sanctioned tournaments before heading to sectional, which is one of the most competitive tournaments that can lead to making regionals and nationals. Usually, these tournaments only take place during the spring season, however this year because of previous canceled seasons as a result of the pandemic, Seaweed will have the chance to compete in sectionals and regionals during the spring and fall seasons.
We Need Your Help!
Two competitive seasons mean double the fun, as we have already competed in our first sanctioned tournament this season. We can’t wait to keep going. However, two competitive seasons also means twice the travel, hotel and bid costs. That’s why we need your help, Seaweed would like to attend as many tournaments as we can to make up for lost time and your donations would help us accomplish this goal of being able to represent Seaweed and UNCW on the field once again. Every gift matters, and we appreciate anything you can give! By supporting our team, you will also be counted as part of Like No Other: The Campaign for UNCW.
Thank you for your support!! Make sure to keep up with us on social media. STMLB!!
