Albany Ultimate

It could be a fun way to stretch yourself.

Here's something that might be fun to do this summer: the Albany Ultimate Frisbee Association is holding sign-ups for its summer leagues. From Peter, who's a member:

The league is always looking to build its ranks and this year to further that goal a recreational league has been formed as an outlet for new players to get into the sport and not be overwhelmed by higher level players.

The Albany area ultimate scene is very vibrant with a strong core of college and older players. The scene includes GE employees and curators at the State Museum. Players come from Saratoga and as far south as Columbia and Greene counties.

The summer league games are held in Collins Circle on the UAlbany uptown campus. The season starts the first week of June. It's $30 to join a league.

I played Summer League last year. It is a lot of fun and not too intimidating even if you have never played Ultimate before.

There was a great article in the NY Times a few weeks ago about ultimate. I loved all the terminology and slang, like hucking.

@abby: +2 sneaky points :)
