We’ve done some logistical juggling and are now able to keep registration open for Falmouth Rogue through the end of the month!
The good news is that our first practice is on Friday, March 30th and the deadline to register isn’t until the following day, March 31st. So players can now check out the first practice before making the final decision to commit to the full season!
The roads are a bit too slippery to meet tonight, so we’ll be pushing back to meet at noon this Saturday. Same place- Falmouth Town Library on Lunt. Apologies if that conflicts with any weekend plans. The deadline to register will be pushed back to Sunday and I’ll post notes from the meeting Saturday evening.
This season we’re super lucky to be employing the services of ultimate video-producing superstar Charles Cleary, who is local to the area and known for his top quality videos. A sample of this work is below. Chuck will be filming one of our games this season and producing a similar video of highlights for Falmouth Rogue. Get excited!

The 145-gram Jstar disc by Discraft is a wonderfully scaled-down version of the 175-gram Ultrastar discs used in regulation play. We are printing up 100 Falmouth Rogue Jstar discs this year to use in our new 3rd/4th grade intramural program and for use when Coach Shea teaches the Falmouth 4th graders how to play ultimate in their gym classes. Here’s a mock up of how they will look. We’ll have them ready to throw by mid-March!

Watch as tennis great Roger Federer calls his own serve out. THIS is how we play ultimate. Play with top class or don’t play at all.
Quick heads-up! Instead of meeting on Monday, February 26th, we will now be gathering on Thursday, March 8th from 6-7pm to talk about the upcoming Falmouth Rogue season. If you or your student athlete is planning on playing with the travel team, please try to attend. Also, spread the word!
