Five Idaho players made the team this season and their first game is March 11 in Arizona.

Imagine combining football, soccer, and … frisbees. It's called ultimate frisbee and Idaho is part of a team that plays across the Mountain West.

Idaho is part of team “Utah Wild” and its mission is to “advance visibility, equity, and high-quality competition for women and non-binary players within the sport.” They also have a whole lot of fun playing the game.

Joining Idaho Matters are Leah Smith, one of the co-founders of the “Utah Wild” and Dr. Sarah Staller, who when she isn’t delivering babies in Boise, is player number 24 on the team!
