Gender Inclusion Policy

BIU’s goal is to ensure that Bainbridge Island Ultimate programs are inclusive and safe for all athletes. All players are welcome, irrespective of gender identity or gender expression. BIU high school teams play in the DiscNW Gx, Mixed, and Bx leagues. Players are encouraged join the teams and match up with players they feel most comfortable playing with and marking:

Gx = female-matching players (FMPs)
Bx = male-matching players (MMPs)
Mixed = both FMPs and MMPs

Athletes are not required to disclose their gender identity or history to participate in BIU programs or DiscNW leagues; rather, they should sign up for the team and choose a gender matchup that is comfortable for them.
