Riot is an elite-level women's ultimate team based in Seattle, Washington. Riot was founded in 2000, after the previous top-level women's team in Seattle, Women on the Verge, disbanded.[1] They were the women's champions at the 2004[2] and 2005[3] UPA Club Championships (now USA Ultimate). They have also won the WFDF World Ultimate Club Championships in 2002 and 2014.[4][5][6]

Seattle Riot is coached by Andy Lovseth, Gwen Ambler, and Rohre Titcomb, and is captained by Alyssa Weatherford, Bailey Zanhiser, and Julia Snyder.[7]

There have been three individual winners of the Kathy Pufahl Spirit Award from Seattle Riot: Gwen Ambler (2011), Kati Halmos (2005), and Vida Towne (2004).[8] Additionally, Riot has won the team spirit award three times in 2015, 2013, and 2006.[9]

Community Involvement[edit]

Seattle Riot participates in numerous community efforts.[10] Riot player Hana Kawai founded the All Girl Everything Ultimate Program (AGE UP) to "build power among young people of color, particularly girls, in Seattle’s South End".[11] Former player Shannon O'Malley is the director of DiscNW Summer Eastside Youth Ultimate Camp, and many current players coach at that camp.[12] Former player and current coach Gwen Ambler founded the Seattle Women's winter league.[13]
