2019 Disc-giveaway!

We believe that every kid should know how to play ultimate and that each needs their own discs, so every year in Falmouth, we spend a couple of months teaching all the 5th graders in town how to play ultimate in their gym classes and give each of them their own disc. This year we decided to have some fun with our design and had team artist John Rioux form up the Falmouth Rogue squad!

We printed up 200 discs in all to give out, as there are around 180 or so 5th graders in town, leaving us enough leftovers to re-stock the gym teachers’ supplies. Here’s the boxes on stage during a class:

Lots of discs!

Big big thanks to everyone at Discraft for their fantastic service and fair pricing.

And HUGE thanks to the Welch and Wissink families for helping to pay for some of the discs!

Roll Falmouth!

Highlights from 2019 College Nationals

With Falmouth Rogue now graduating high school seniors up into the world of college ultimate, this is a perfect time to share highlights from the recent 2019 College Championships. The state of the college game is strong and getting stronger. I can’t wait to see our players start to show up in highlight reels like this! It won’t be long.

2019 Falmouth Rogue College Scholarship goes to Caitlyn Hanley!

Caitlyn Hanely has been awarded the first Falmouth Rogue College Scholarship!

I took over the Falmouth middle school ultimate program in its second year of existence back in 2014, inheriting a small team of players that included a very excited and serious 7th grader named Caitlyn. In her two years as a middle school player, Caitlyn became a team leader and a fantastic player, something she continued excelling at when she joined the high school team. This year was Caitlyn’s final year of high school and she’ll be going off to college up at Bates, where she’ll also play on their ultimate team.

Caitlyn is the perfect first winner of the Falmouth Rogue College Scholarship, which I was very happy to award her this week during the high school team banquet. The $200 scholarship is admittedly on the smaller side, but should help at least pay for some books.

Congratulations Caityln! We can’t wait to share highlight videos of you playing for Bates.
