Community Engagement

Brighton Ultimate believes in engaging with our community to benefit the club and society as a whole.  We want to get people active and teach them our values.  Ultimate is a self-refereed sport and as such places a big emphasis on developing social and emotional learning. We believe in introducing the sport (and its values) to as many people as possible to widen participation and increase the diversity of our players.   We have part-time coaches who work with the local universities and institutions across the wider Sussex area. Brighton Ultimate also facilitates the 100+ members to regular games, practices and socials with financial support for Brighton teams to enter into national and international competitions.

What’s actually available?
