The William Penn High School Sports Analytics Club is very proud to announce that Sophomore Finance student, Umar Khan, will take part in an sports analytics development opportunity with the Los Angeles Aviators, of the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL).
Khan, with the support of club moderator Mr. Jesse McNulty, and Mr. James Park, Owner of the Los Angeles Aviators, will work to develop analytics in the growing sport of Ultimate Disc, and use the data to provide insight to players and staff.
The Los Angeles Aviators are the 22nd team to join the American Ultimate Disc League. The mission is to build a competitive team, provide a platform to elevate the visibility of the sport and all the positive values it holds as well as expand opportunities for new players and kids to play and learn about this exciting game we simply call “Ultimate”.
We are extremely excited for this opportunity to work in a fast-paced game that is certainly growing nationwide!
