Brianne Wager (Vancouver, BC) 

Submitted bio:

I have been playing ultimate in BC for 10 years, starting in Grade 8 at the encouragement of the one and only Chris Wakelin. My playing experience includes high school mixed, junior club, adult club (women’s and mixed), college, international (TC U19 women’s and TC U23 mixed), and the SUL and VUL. I have been involved in team leadership, most recently captaining Fable Ultimate in the 2018 season, and have contributed to growing the sport by coaching at the high school level, leading summer camps for youth 8-18 years old, and being a mentor for VUL’s fall women’s league. I recently graduated from UBC with a Bachelor’s of Kinesiology and am pursuing a career in health and fitness. I also have experience in event planning: during my undergrad I served as VP Logistics on the 2015 KIN Games committee where I helped organize a three-day event attended by over 800 kinesiology students from across Canada; I helped organize events with SISU Girls, a club aimed at promoting physical activity and community among women; and I organized and TD-ed a local 6-team mixed club tournament this spring.
