Ultimate Frisbee Club
Ultimate frisbee originated in America and is quickly growing in popularity in Europe. There are now many club, university and school tournaments across the country. The brilliant team at St Andrews is led by our Head Coach, Ben Heywood. He has been involved in the ultimate community world-wide for many years. We compete in three different divisions, men’s, women’s and mixed. These teams compete both outdoor and indoor. We compete in the BUCS league every year while also maintaining an environment for enthusiastic beginners to join. If you are a complete beginner to ultimate, there is no need to worry. There are multiple beginner tournaments throughout the year and our club is incredibly welcoming to newcomers.
It is very important to us that we maintain a good relationship with our alumni. Each year we have an alumni event where anybody can come back and play with our current team. This is a great time for old friends to catch up as well as meeting new people in the ultimate community. We are also very happy for alumni to attend sessions throughout the year. Their experience is very important in the development of new and existing players. If you are interested in any alumni events or more information please reach out and we will put you in contact with our Alumni representative.
During the 2019-2020 year the men’s side raised money during Movember for prostate and testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention by growing some questionable facial hair. The club ran outreach sessions with Families First in the fall. In the spring we travelled to Dundee and played wheelchair frisbee with the Dundee Dragons wheelchair sport league. During the summer the club raised money for NHS Charities by climbing to space on our stairs. In the 2020-2021 year we hope to increase our engagement with the community as well as charities both in St. Andrews and across the UK.
If you are interested in partnering with the club, please send us a message or email and will you put you in touch with our Charities and Outreach representative.
