This is a fantastic game to watch! In this one, the Minneapolis Sub Zero takes on the Tokyo Buzz Bullets, the storied top Japanese ultimate team, in pool play during the 2019 U.S. Open. Give it a watch!
This video of the great human and scientist Carl Sagan’s Pale Blue Dot feels important right now.

It’s going to be wonderful to get outside again when we can play as a team. Stay safe at home everyone!
Jimmy Mickle is one of my favorite ultimate players- he’s fast, tall, and has great throws and catches. He dominates in the air and has an astute sense of the field and where things need to go and when. Here are a bunch of videos to get started- Google his name to learn more and watch more videos.
Here is Jimmy’s Callahan nomination video for 2013, when he was a player with Colorado University’s Mamabird. The Callahan Award is given each year to the top player in women’s and men’s ultimate.
A highlight video from his time as a pro player in the American Ultimate Disc League:

Beach ultimate is SO much fun!
This is a great game between the women’s’ club teams Boston Brute Squad and the Toronto 6ixers for the 2019 Club Championships! Give it a watch.
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.
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.
– Coach Shea
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.
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.
