Evolution of our uniform

We take a lot of pride in our team kit and come up with a new design every season. There’s a story on and to our shirts and shorts.

Starting in 2016, our fourth as a team and my third as a coach, we stepped up into full sublimation printing with a beautiful design by then-high school student Joey Han, a member of the founding 2013 team. The 2016 design has a octopus sea monster fighting off the brave Rogue ship and its giant one-handed pirate captain.

In 2017, that octopus monster had seen the Rogue light and joined in with the Rogue ship and captain to take the battle underwater against a new nemesis, a giant crab monster. Notice that in 2017, the back-of-the-shirt characters are wearing the jerseys from 2016. That’s an ongoing theme now.

This year we had our first female character (as we are a co-ed team) in our tropical bird set on a tropical island. Now the back-of-the-shirt team features the captain, the Rogue ship, and the crab and octopus monsters. Again, they’re wearing last year’s kit.

I’m still mulling over what next year’s shirts will be but really love all the bright colors of this year’s design, so I’m looking at particularly colorful animals.

Right now we have five characters in our team pantheon- the captain, the Rogue ship, the octopus and crab monsters, and the tropical bird. We’re going to go two more years to get a full line of seven characters before shifting visual styles.

The invention of ultimate

ultimate in columbia

This is a picture of the annual varsity vs. alumni ultimate game that takes place in the parking lot at Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey, where the first game of ultimate was played back in 1968.

Here’s the parking lot on maps.

An interesting ultimate fact- movie producer Joel Silver (Matrix, Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, & Predator) was one of its inventors and is to have said “Someday people all over the world will be playing this game“. He was right.
