"The Ultimate Sport" Children's Book
The BADA 2021 book sale has ended, but you can still get your copy of The Ultimate Sport!
The Ultimate Sport tells the story of Hadley, a young Ultimate player who knows her friends would love to play Ultimate if they’d only give the sport a chance.
The book’s themes include leadership, Spirit of the Game, friendship, teamwork, encouragement, and facing new challenges.
The book was written and illustrated by Yoonha Park, a high school Ultimate player and 2020 GURLS graduate who lives in Santa Clara. Completed as part of a four-week service project, The Ultimate Sport was inspired by Yoonha’s own experiences with sports and the sense of community she found in Ultimate.
Half of the profits of each sale will go towards supporting Ultimate programs for girlx in the Bay Area, including leagues and the GURLS Program, a tuition-free leadership program for athletes in high school. The other half will go to its author, Yoonha.
