This past June, the Color of Ultimate hosted a highly successful game in Atlanta. The organization works in close partnership with Atlanta Flying Disc Club: Project Diversity, whose mission is to help people of all socioeconomic and racial backgrounds access and enjoy the opportunities and benefits of ultimate. Although Project Diversity is based in Atlanta, it encourages its mission to be spread in communities across the country and around the world.

After launching a popular documentary this past fall, the Color of Ultimate decided to bring its initiative westward and to the beach ultimate scene to further advance the missions of both AFDC: Project Diversity and the LA Throwback Foundation. The LA Throwback Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity that works to support young teams and develop broad leadership in the ultimate community, and to help change the demographics of the sport to more closely reflect the diversity of the wider community. This year’s LA Throwback Beach Ultimate Fest will host over 1500 players from all over North America over the Martin Luther King Day weekend.
