Beau Kittredge is leaving San Francisco Revolver in advance of their WUCC year and moving to New York to compete with the AUDL’s Empire, he announced in his column on Skyd Magazine.
“My new plan is a four year plan, just like a college education — but instead of school, my subject matter will be real world material,” he writes. “In that time I will learn everything about business through the two lenses I care most about: my video game studio and the world of sports. This is going to require sacrifice and a complete move to the East Coast, leaving my safety blanket of closest friends in San Francisco, and, more important than that, it means leaving Revolver for good.”
Kittredge began playing with Revolver in 2009, winning five National Championships in nine years. He has also won four consecutive AUDL championships, playing with the San Jose Spiders in 2014 and 2015, the Dallas Roughnecks in 2016, and the San Francisco FlameThrowers last season.
Kittredge wrote in January that he would “play for free in the AUDL city most willing to help AUDLx [a mixed gender league concept]” or “the city most willing to give female athletes the resources, spotlight and media coverage they deserve.” However, he said that plan had a “critical flaw,” that it “would put the onus on the AUDL teams and the gender equity movement to determine what the best route would be.” He concludes, “That is why I am going to do something a little crazy with faith that in the long run it will be the right path; a path where I hope to be not just someone with ideas, but also someone with the means to implement them.”
