Board & Staff

Meggie MacMichael - Chair 

Meggie MacMichael started playing Ultimate in 2009 at Mount Allison University. Having never heard of Ultimate before that, she can’t remember what made her go to that first practice but she is so glad that she did!  Since joining HU in 2013, Meggie has played and captained in draft and team-entry HU leagues year-round. For the past three years, Meggie has been playing with the local competitive women’s team, Salty. When not playing or training for Ultimate, Meggie works for Nova Scotia Environment and enjoys hiking. 
 
This is Meggie’s first year on the board and in addition to being Chair, is on the league committee and is the board’s liaison to Disc NS. Reach out to the board (via Meggie) by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Sean Harrison - Vice Chair

Sean started playing Ultimate in 2008 at the University of New Brunswick and joined HU in 2011. Back then Sean’s main Ultimate strategy was to throw a flick as far as possible and hope for the best… and since then not too much has changed! He has recently started captaining league teams and is excited to give back to the Halifax Ultimate Community. Along with being the Vice Chair, Sean will be involved in the Field, League, and Touring Team committees. Outside of Ultimate you can find Sean playing tennis around Halifax or blaring rap music (RTJ) as loud as possible.

 

Andrew Johnston - Treasurer

Andrew was introduced to the sport of Ultimate in the 9th grade in the Moncton winter indoor league. After taking a 4 year hiatus, his university roommate Malcolm Elliot helped him find his passion for the sport with the Mount Allison club team. Since then, he has learned to throw a flick and has been cut from Team Canada’s U24 team and he’s not bitter about it at all.
 
In his spare time outside of the ultimate world, Andrew is studying to obtain a CPA designation with Ernst & Young, so you can have some trust that he is at least trying to know what he is doing with your membership dues and league fees. If you want to reach out to him about anything at all it is best to contact him at his personal email: This email address is being protected from spambots.

Garrett Jung - Secretary

Garrett began playing Ultimate 6 years ago with the Dalhousie/Kings Ultimate Team (DKUT). Since then, he has become obsessed with the sport and has gotten involved every chance he’s got. He loves the community and meeting new people, so please introduce yourself to him on the sidelines.
