University of Chicago Ultimate

Hey all,

Welcome to the new homepage of University of Chicago Men's Ultimate Frisbee. The U of C's men's ultimate program features over forty players on two teams, the A-team Junk and the B-team Meat. While the teams are split X/Y in the fall for tryouts, in the Winter and Spring the teams attend a variety of tournaments as far away as Georgia and Las Vegas. Last year Junk came in the middle of the pack at a very strong Las Vegas tournament, advanced to the Great Lakes Regionals tournament for the third year in a row and also came in seventh at the Division III nationals tournament held in Versailles, OH. We also have a women's team, Supersnatch, who would love to recruit any women ultimate players out there.

Interested in playing?
Good. Tryouts are held in the beginning of the Fall (Late September in October) and will consist of 2-3 practices a week and several tournaments. Junk is intended for players with superior athleticism, disc skills and dedication throughout the year, which includes morning practices and workouts in the winter, tournaments in the Spring and practices year round. Meat is oriented to those with less time or experience for ultimate and is excellent training for newer players who want to play with Junk in the years to come.

What Next - Practices, Tryouts and Listhosts
If you are an incoming undergraduate or graduate students, our ultimate season will start practices the week of September 29th. Practices are held during Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:30 - 5:30, so be sure to leave this wide open as you schedule classes [we realize that some conflicts, like discussions or BA seminars are unavoidable]. Weekend practice times have yet to be established. All practices and pickup will be held at Washington Park:

However be sure to contact us before practices start. During O-Week (student orientation week), which starts September 20th we will be out throwing on Bartlett Quadrangle and the Main Quad. If you see someone with a disc, just come up and talk to us, especially Saturday the 20th. Pickup will also be held during O-Week, so check this Blog and sign up for the U of C Men's Ultimate Listhost: This is very important so I'll repeat it again: If you want to play frisbee here, sign up for the listhost: Also feel free to email the captains at chicagoultimate gmail [remove this].com.
