I’m in the top 100 athlete for a sport barely anyone knows about

I play ultimate frisbee. I am in the top 100 U20 players in the USA. I was invited to try out for USA’s U20 team that travels/plays internationally over the summer (try out was in November and I find out if I made it in Jan.) The sport itself has gotten bigger over the years but rarely anyone knows what it is if it’s brought up; usually confusing it for disc golf or just not knowing what it is. I find it a little amusing being one of the best athletes at a socially non-existent sport. I played baseball, basketball, soccer, volleyball, and golf as a kid. Makes me wonder if I would’ve made it as far in one of those
