Spirit of the Game: Tennis style

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.

Players and Parents meeting now moved to March 8th from 6-7pm

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!

Wanted: Middle School Ultimate Frisbee Coaches

Please share this widely:

Falmouth Rogue is a middle school ultimate team with girl and boy players in grades 5-8 and is looking for coaches for the upcoming 2018 season. Our ideal candidates have experience playing competitive ultimate and the ability to teach to and coach middle schoolers. Our travel team practices are three days a week from the first week in April through the second week of June and are held in Falmouth, Maine. Coaches receive free uniforms, discs, and a small stipend upon the successful completion of the season. We also pay for USAU Level 1 Coach certification. To learn more about the team, please visit FMSUltimate.com and/or email coach SheaGunther@gmail.com.”

Getting ready for the 2018 season!

Get excited for ultimate!

The 2018 season is fast approaching. Here are some good things to know:

– Pre-season Parents and Players meeting is Monday, February 26 from 6-7:00pm at the Falmouth Town Library on Lunt Road. All new and returning parents and players for Falmouth Rogue should try to attend.

– Our first indoor pre-season practice is Friday, March 30th, from 6-8pm, in the Falmouth Middle School gym. Pre-season practices will be held on Sundays, Mondays, and Wednesdays. Please click over to the Rogue schedule for exact details.

– Two of our practices will be film sessions (due to the unavailability of gym space). On Wednesdays, April 4th and 11th, we’ll be watching professional produced games of ultimate (like this) and eating snacks.

– The deadline for signing up to play on Falmouth Rogue is Friday, March 9th. Due to the time it takes uniforms to be printed, this is a hard and fast deadline. Registration is open now!

– Speaking of uniforms, our team artist Joey Han is hard at-work on putting the finishing touches on this year’s design. It’s going to be awesome!

Roll Falmouth Rogue!

We gave a disc to every 5th grader in Falmouth!

Thanks to the generosity of the 2017 FMS Ultimate parents, we were able to order 200 new discs that were given away to this year’s 5th graders. We had enough to hand out a disc to every 5th grader in Falmouth with enough left over to leave some for the elementary and middle school gym teachers. Coach Shea also spent six weeks teaching ultimate to the 5th graders in their gym classes. Thanks as always to gym teacher Maureen Sylvia for letting us come in! There were a lot of great moments in their last few weeks of gym class ultimate as they got out and starting playing full games. We should have a good strong crew of 5th graders in the spring!

 

 

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.
