Ultimate Frisbee is rapidly growing, with its feature in the World Games 2022 and over five million people playing nationwide. Here’s how to get involved with Ultimate through Auburn University and beyond.
What is Ultimate?
Ultimate Frisbee, also known as Ultimate, is a non-contact game played by two teams of seven players. Think football and soccer, but with a flying disc. The team passes the frisbee from one player to the next without dropping it or taking steps while holding it. To score, all you need to do is catch the disc in the opponent’s end zone.
Women’s Ultimate Club
Women’s Ultimate, or Ares, is an Auburn University club that meets on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Sportsplex. The organization brings together like-minded women that share a passion for Ultimate and competing at other universities. Check out how you can get involved on their website and follow their Twitter to join the fun.
Men’s Ultimate Club
The University also has a Men’s team, the Aetos. The club meets on Mondays and Tuesdays at the Sportsplex. There’s never a dull moment with the Aetos, and their Twitter can attest to that. The team travels all over the country to compete against other colleges.
