Jean-Michel discovered Ultimate Frisbee in the summer of 2014. Captivated by the sport, it was no surprise that he registered for all of Halifax’s Ultimate Frisbee leagues upon moving to the city in 2015. He’s been a proud member of Halifax Ultimate ever since and although he may not be in any of the touring teams, he believes that his layouts are world class! Feel free to challenge him.
If you want to reach out to him about anything at all in regards to leagues contact him via: firstname.lastname@example.org
Board of Directors
The board of directors for 2018-2019 are:
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. In addition to being the Vice Chair, Sean is 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.
Aric accidentally started playing ultimate in 2009 when a scheduling error had his team thinking they were going to a HSSC dodgeball information session and ended up in a frisbee one; this gave birth to the (still running) “We thought this was Dodgeball” team! Since then, Aric has captained several teams, including a reoccurring summer team that focuses on bringing beginner level players into the sport. When is isn’t playing ultimate, he has a passion for refining his go-to rib rub recipe or beating you at Mario Kart.
He brings a recreational level player point of view to the board and is focused on membership engagement and satisfaction. If you have any feedback on your HU experience, give him a shout on his personal email: Aric_123@hotmail.com
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: email@example.com.
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 second year on the board and she sits on the Women in Ultimate and leagues committees.
Erica started playing ultimate at StFX University in 2011, and joined the Halifax Ultimate community in 2013. She enjoys playing in rec league throughout the year, and also plays on Salty, Halifax’s women’s touring team, during the summer. Erica works as a building automation technician, and enjoys quilting in her spare time.
Molly was officially introduced to Ultimate in 2015 when she started playing on the Dalhousie/King’s Ultimate Team (DKUT). Her teammates were very fond of her, as she refused to throw anything but hammers and dropped nearly every disc that was thrown to her. Now, Molly plays on Anchor and Salty, Halifax’s competitive mixed and women’s teams. While she is involved with many areas of Halifax Ultimate, she is particularly passionate about women’s ultimate and loves constantly reminding fellow board member Meggie that her team has won all 4 of the last 4 women’s leagues.
Outside of ultimate, Molly studies law at Dalhousie University. Feel free to reach out to her anytime via her personal email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

She began touring in 2015 with Salty, and has continued to tour with Anchor for the last three summers.
She has been on the board in previous years and is very excited for the opportunity again. This summer she will be captaining Anchor.
