GIRLS’ ULTIMATE MOVEMENT

What's GUM?

The Girls’ Ultimate Movement (GUM) is a community-wide outreach program designed to increase girls’ participation in the sport of ultimate. Players, coaches, administrators and parents across the US are thrilled to be participating in GUM. As an explosive team sport that emphasizes character and leadership skills, ultimate is the NEXT big sport for girls.
