Minnesota Superior will try to defend its title next weekend in the USA Ultimate Youth Club Championships at the National Sports Center in Blaine.

Superior will have teams in all four divisions — open, coed, girls and U16 — all of which feature the state’s top players. There will be 43 teams from 19 cities across the country participating, the largest amount to date.

Players such as Smith are continuing to try and do their part to grow the sport, so Minnesota can continue to establish itself as an ultimate hotbed.

“Every year before the season we try and grab people,” Smith said. “Once you get someone to try it, that’s all you need to do. A $10 disc is all you need. Once they’re in, they’re hooked.”
