Virtual Preseason- Spinning the disc!

Today we’re going to start practicing spinning  the disc! It makes your fingers and hands strong and is a great and easy way to use time sitting around. Start with spinning it with your middle finger and then try the other fingers. Both hands too! It’s fine to double up fingers if needed.

A Virtual Preseason!

Since everyone is at home right now, I thought it’d be a good idea to kick off our virtual preseason early, so I shot this video with some things that you can do to get better at ultimate while you are by yourself; you just need a disc! In this video I mention team runs- I just wanted to be clear about that- we are NOT going to be running together as a team through April, but we will be scheduling times where everyone goes out individually for a jog while listening to the same playlist.

Roll Falmouth!

Roll Maine!

Roll Ultimate!

Signs-ups for intramural will open up in April- register for the travel team now!

Just a quick reminder- our intramural team sign-ups will be open in April, with intramural play to begin in May, as soon as the fields are dry enough to play on. Intramural sessions will be on Wednesdays from 5:30-7:00pm and will be open to any student in grades 2-8.

Falmouth Rogue, the travel team, starts a month sooner and plays and practices more often than the intramural program. Falmouth Rogue is open to players in grades 4-8. Read our FAQ to learn more.

Falmouth Rogue’s 2020 kit!

 

Rogue-2020 kit to share

We like to have a LOT of fun with our uniforms here at Falmouth Rogue and have been lucky to work with some amazing local young artists who help bring our vision to life. Our uniforms are unique each year and help tell the Rogue story.

It’s not a bad idea to read last year’s uniform post for the complete backstory. In short though, each year we have a new nemesis fronting our uniforms, with the Rogue crew on the back battling it out. Each year the Rogue crew has gotten larger as former foes see the Rogue light and join up. This year is no different with the 2019 leopard now sporting a Rogue uniform alongside the captain, the crab, the octopus, the tropical bird, and, of course, the magical sentient Rogue ship.

And who could forget our favorite new derpy snake, taking to the air with some assistance from a sea gull?

And is that a narwhal!? You bet it is.

😀

Roll Falmouth Rogue!

HUGE thanks to artist John Rioux for his stellar work on this.

Teaching the 3rd graders this week!

HUGE thanks to FES gym teacher Jeff Sprague for allowing me to come in and teach Falmouth’s third graders how to play ultimate! We have two sessions with the third graders this year- one class for learning to throw and catch and another to learn how to play ultimate. It’s a good introduction to the sport a couple of years before the kids will spend six weeks playing ultimate in gym class as fifth graders.

Falmouth third graders are welcome to signup for our Intramural program and can play as travel players on Rogue next year as fourth graders. Signups for the Intramural team will open up in April.

2019 Disc-giveaway!

We believe that every kid should know how to play ultimate and that each needs their own disc, 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!

close up discs

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!
