Ultimate History - Joe Seidler
Maintaining the history on this website is a true labor of love…
I’ve never played ultimate. My wife and I first saw a game in 1993 when our son started playing at UCSB. We quickly became avid fans attending many college and club Regionals, Nationals and Worlds through 2004. Along the way, I became dedicated to documenting the history of the sport and the great athletes who play it.
