In 2010, an elite women's club ultimate frisbee team called Molly Brown was formed. Molly Brown was chosen as the name as a tribute to a 20th-century Colorado suffragette and Titanic survivor Maggie “Molly” Brown.
While the "Unsinkable" Molly Brown is most well known for being a survivor of the 1912 Titanic disaster, many don’t know that she was also a philanthropist, advocate for workers and children, and women’s rights activist. Maggie remained committed to advocating for the less fortunate throughout her life and was far ahead of her time on women’s rights issues.
Throughout the past 9 years, the Molly Brown ultimate team has continued the spirit of Margaret Brown's activism by supporting women's and youth development and participation in ultimate frisbee. Our players have captained or coached women's college teams at CU Boulder, Colorado College, and Colorado State University, high school teams in the Denver/Boulder metro area, and the Colorado Youth Club Championships high school team. Molly Brown players have run development skills clinics for middle-, high-school, and college players and hosted showcase games to promote viewership of elite female athletes. Our players created a high school league where elite club players from the area play with high schoolers in a co-ed winter league focused on learning and development and have fundraised to support a scholarship for high school girls from Colorado to attend the National Ultimate Training Camp, which is hosted in Massachusetts every summer.
