Sandy Park

Sandy fell in love with Ultimate in her early twenties and hasn't looked back. Since then she played/coached at club Nationals and Worlds and served in the community as a local board member, a national board member, a tournament director, an EDI committee member, a high school coach, and everything in between. As a coach, Sandy uses her experiences as a former HS teacher and counselor to develop players and team culture. She takes a collaborative approach to working with each player, helping them assess their strengths and areas of growth, creating attainable short and long-term goals, and communicating roles that allow all players to thrive on the team. In her free time, you'll find Sandy adventuring with her three kids and working towards dismantling systems of oppression.
