LUFDA has been around since 2003, when a young, amicable student by the name of Dave Curtis ('04) took it upon himself to plant the seeds of what would become one of the most successful club sports programs in Luther College's history.
Since its creation, LUFDA has grown to become a nationally recognized team. Despite being one of the newer ultimate programs on the scene and coming from a school many times smaller than many of their main competitors, LUFDA has made multiple appearances at the Division-I National Tournament, placing as high as 5th in 2012. Consistently finishing high in the West Plains Conference, LUFDA is always a force to be reckoned within the North Central Region.
Just 6 years after its inception, LUFDA reached the National Tournament for the first time in 2009. Since then, LUFDA has made National Tournament appearances 3 more times, including their highest finish, 5th in 2012. LUFDA looks to carry on the legacy left from past seasons and continue to be one of the smallest schools represented in the Division-I National tournament.
Despite including many dangerous teams, LUFDA is always a legitimate threat in the North Central region. Although it is difficult to advance to Nationals out of the talented North Central region, LUFDA has a strong history in the Regional Tournament.
