Layout has partnered with Asia-Oceanic All-Stars! We're super excited for this partnership and to deck out all team members in custom Layout AO gloves!
We were passionate to partner with the AO All-Stars as we share a mission to achieve gender equity in our sport. The AO All-Stars are comprised of 22 players from Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, China, India and Singapore. You can support the AO All-Stars by donating / getting some sweet gear through the GoFundMe Campaign.
The AO mission is to connect, build and inspire women in ultimate across the globe, but more specifically in the Asia Oceanic region. AO All-Stars aim to raise the profile of the our incredible female athletes and showcase the women's game.
They want to develop these athletes as players and leaders; give them opportunities to connect with each other and other amazing mentors in the USA and Canada. The AO players will take what they learn back home and the program will support them to share an implement ideas from their experiences and to further develop the women's game.

These athletes will tour through the east coast of the United States of America in July this year and compete with some of the best clubs in the world - New York Bent, Philadelphia Green, Washington Scandal, Boston Brute Squad and Toronto 6ixers (will be an exciting Layout partner game). On tour they will also engage in leadership workshops and youth clinics. They will partner with teams and organisations who believe in the mission of the program and are helping us achieve our vision.
We wish the AO All-Stars the best as they prep for their journey!
