Bryce Laufer
Treasurer
Bryce Got his start in Ultimate in 2015 when he was asked to sub for the Frisbeasts of the Winnipeg Wednesday Rec League. After a few games of subbing he was hooked. Leading to him starting and captaining his own rec team: Huck Huck Goose. His team outlived his captaincy though as he moved from Winnipeg to Kamloops in 2019. Since moving Bryce has played as part of the Kamloops league and many other competitive teams throughout the Okanagan. Bryce has been a KULS board member since 2019.
Outside of ultimate Bryce enjoys: skiing, mountain biking and golfing.
Fiona Brisco
Member at Large

Fiona was introduced to Ultimate in the summer of 2018 when she got thrown into a Big Thirst tournament having only ever played gym class Ultimate (which is drastically different). She immediately fell in love with the spirit, competitiveness, and style of the game. Since then, she played two seasons for South Kamloops Secondary School, and competed at Junior Nationals in 2019. She has been apart of the Kamloops Ultimate league for three seasons, and she is excited to see Ultimate continue to grow within the community.

 

Outside of Ultimate, Fiona enjoys spending time with family and friends, skiing, burgers, and playing/coaching basketball.

Alysia Francis
Secretary
Alysia got her start in Ultimate in 1999 due to very persistant RA at U of A. After playing on the icy surfaces of Edmonton for 4 years, the VUL was a dream, upside down rain and all. Since moving back to Kamloops 5 years ago, Alysia has enjoyed playing in the league, but her *ultimate* passion remains with youth and development in schools. Alysia sits on the BCSS board for Ultimate as the Okanagan rep, and has watched the school programs grow in this region steadily each year. 

Outside of Ultimate, Alysia enjoys playing soccer, watching hockey, and road trips with family.

Lisa Vos
Member at Large

Lisa got her start in Ultimate in 2000.  She was immediately drawn to the sport because of all that it offered: gender equity, non contact, self officiating, playing spirit games, singing on the sidelines, pride in sportsmanship, and meeting friends who will last a lifetime.  Lisa played many years with the VUL and misses the opportunity to play 3+ days a week. However, Lisa loves the possibilities in Kamloops (her hometown) to meet new players and grow the game by leading kids camps and mentoring in schools. 

Outside of Ultimate, Lisa enjoys snowboarding, couponing, and spending time with family.
