Oakland Ultimate, founded in Fall 2017 by Valerio Iani, international coach and former Youth and Education Director at BADA, debuted with two U-15 teams at the snowy USA Ultimate Western Championships. Since then, we’ve built a dediciated community of 400 members and played in several out-of-state tournaments around the country. OAK Sparks’ 24 players hail from 15 local schools. Our team (average age 15.1) aims to perform under pressure, learn and earn respect for our California style of play: we are excited and proud of our novel and unconventional offense based on quick movements and aggressive transition.
