Albany Ultimate 2010

albany ultimate 2010We get questions fairly often from people looking to join some sort of sports team or league. Here's one that might be fun.

Albany Ultimate (as in frisbee) is starting up again soon. From Peter, who's one of the organizers:

Similar to last year we have several different options for new players. We will be running a women's league so that ladies can come out and play and learn the sport in a positive setting with excellent coaches. We also have a Social League which is for new players to get out and learn the game and not be overwhelmed by newer players. And also a Competitive League which is for more experienced players. Both Social and Competitive leagues are coed.
Currently pickup Ultimate is occurring at Collins Circle at SUNY Albany Campus on Tuesday and Thursday starting at 5pm and is open to anyone.

Registration opens April 9. It's $35 to play in the social and competitive leagues and $20 for the elite league. Games start June 1.

woot! Play Ultimate.

bah... hippies!

A quick primer for those unfamiliar with ultimate.

This and dodge ball, so many fun ways to get athletic activity in. $35 for a summer long of outdoorsy play is cheap too.

That's an awesome price for the season. ..and cheaper than a membership to

@ike. Hey Eisenhower, what do you know about hippies? Come out and play.

This is an awesome way to get out, meet people and get exercise. The world of ultimate is a hidden world that most people don't know about and its amazing when you discover it.
