FMS Ultimate is back for another exciting season!
We’re making some big changes to the program this year and splitting up into two overlapping teams— the Intramural Team which meets just twice a week and the Travel Team which will play on the Intramural Team as well as playing and practicing a few more days a week. The Intramural Team’s schedule will be designed to be accommodating as possible for athletes playing other sports this Spring. We want to give new players the chance to try out ultimate in a fun and laid back atmosphere.
The Travel Team is for players who are ready to commit to playing ultimate as their main sport. Travel Team players will also play on the Intramural Team and will have an additional two or three days of practices and games every week. The Travel Team will also play a longer season with practices set to start at the end of March. The Intramural team will start up in the end of April.
We’ll be releasing more details in the coming weeks and will have a parents’ meeting in February, but you can contact me if you have any questions at email@example.com.

We’re running a series of sessions of pickup ultimate frisbee for middle school students in the 5-8 grade starting on Sunday, September 20th and running through November 1st. Each session will run from 4-6pm and will start with a short warm-up exercise before jumping right into playing ultimate. These are fun and low-key games and new players are encouraged to come out and play! Cleats are encouraged, but not necessary. Don’t forget your water bottles!
My apologies. The end of the year tournament is on Sunday, NOT Saturday, at the Wainright fields in South Portland. Our first game is at 9am, so players should be ready to start warming up at at 8:30am at the latest. We’ll be done for the day by 1:30.
Sorry for the mixup!

• Fields 1-4 on first strip, 5-9 on the back strip.
The fields are too wet to play on, so even though it looks like the rain is going to start to lessen today, practice is off.
No game against South Portland on Monday. Stupid rain.
This is how ultimate should be shot!
Due to a last minute business trip that I am on, we won’t be having practice tomorrow, Thursday the 28th. Our next event is the under-the-lights game in Falmouth on Saturday. We will be starting the game at 7:30pm but please plan on having your players to the field by 7pm for warmups.
