HOPE is also excited to have an excellent practice squad who cannot travel to tournaments this summer but are still dedicated to honing their skills and supporting the team:
Ariel has been a player on HOPE since 2018. This scientist loves her plant babies and petting doggos.
Brianna joined HOPE in 2018. This spunky high school teacher enjoys travel and the adorable beagle/basset hound, Max.
Joining as HOPE's coach in the 2018 season, Luke is back again with heaps of energy and the drive to help us grow as players - without any mansplaining! What's to not to LUKE?
Karen has been playing since the first season of HOPE. In her free time, Karen hugs her cats and does science.
Dan (Sticky) DiMascio
Sticky has been part of the Rhode Island scene since before the dinosaurs went extinct. This year he is offering his spirit and wisdom to HOPE at practices.
Playing Women's ultimate again for the first time in ten years, Sam joins HOPE for the 2019 season. This world traveler has the most beautiful eyes on the planet.
