UPRISE

UPRISE WOMEN'S

Emily Lim (left): Emily Lim started playing ultimate in grade 10 at Lord Byng and was a member of the first Misfit women’s team in 2012. Emily has been to Canadian nationals four times and has been to the finals three times. Following her junior career Emily has been coaching in the regional stream of the Misfit program as well as the Point Grey Senior A team. She strives to help players develop their fundamental skills to become well rounded frisbee players. In the summer, besides coaching, Emily enjoys eating ice cream cakes with Denise and baking bread. This summer Emily’s personal goals include recovering from a concussion and cooking dinner for Paige.

Paige Muir (middle): Paige has been playing ultimate since Grade 8 when her math teacher (shout out Jaimie Kot) got her into the sport. Paige played throughout high school and continues her ultimate career at UBC playing with some of the most inspirational athletes out there. She decided to get into coaching this year to help the next generation of ultimate players develop their skills and become almost as good as her. When she’s not playing ultimate, you can catch Paige eating, sleeping and running away from her responsibilities. Her main goals for the season are to help the players achieve their individual goals as well as to have Emily Lim make her an amazing home cooked meal.

Denise Su (right): This is Denise! Denise has been playing ultimate since 2014. She has played on Misfit, UBC Thunderbirds, SHHippos and U24 Team Canada Women’s, and coached Uprise these past two years. Denise’s favourite throw is anything that will break the mark, but she really likes her backhand throws. (Why throw a flick when you can throw an IO backhand? Jk…) In her free time, she likes to play games, either video or board games, drink bubble tea, play with animals (mainly dogs), and sleep. Denise also loves going to AYCE sushi for team bonding because she gets to help finish the food through an exhilarating game of Never Have I Ever where she gets targeted.

UPRISE OPEN

His friends call him big brain but he thinks it’s only regular sized. In his free time he enjoys looking at corgis, and failing his diet. He aspires to look like the Kenneth Paras one day.
