A word from the President…
Welcome to the Mohawks! We are the Ultimate Frisbee team at the University of Sussex. If you’ve ever wondered about Ultimate and what it’s about, or fancy trying a new sport (or of course if you are already a pro player), we are here for you! We have a large club full of great people who love the sport and love everything that comes with it. Whether you are super competitive and fancy getting onto the GB team in a year, or whether you just fancy a run around once a week with some fun people, come along and give it a try. I started Ultimate at Sussex three years ago and haven’t looked back.
We are very proud of our website. Join the forum to find out all information you may want to know about us – socials, trainings, tournaments, and more! Introduce yourself there and get involved in some discussions. We have a facebook page and twitter too but the forum is where you will find everything you need to know.
We hope to see you this year – whether you are a fresher or a Sussex returnee. If you’re not sure, come along and give it a shot – you won’t regret it!
We train at least twice a week as a club but there are a lot more informal meet ups too – buy a disc and you can chuck around with anyone, anytime.
Our main training sessions are:
- WEDNESDAY – Stanmer Park (outdoors)
- 1-3pm Beginners
- 3-5pm Experienced
- FRIDAY – Here we run two sessions that overlap
- 2-5pm Stanmer Park (outdoors)
- 2-5pm Sussex Sports Centre Hall 1 (indoors)
– Division of trainings are yet to be decided. It’s safe to say everyone will get some of both indoors and outdoors on friday.
You’ll want to bring a light and a dark shirt, and then; indoors, a pair of clean, non-marking trainers; and outdoors, a pair of football boots if you have them.
Here is the University of Sussex Campus Map. Stanmer park is at the bottom left of the map, left of the Attenborough Centre. Accessed from opposite the Sports Centre.
We’ve got 3 ‘beginner tournaments’ lined up this year. So-called because they have dedicated beginner divisions, where the freshers of unis from all over the south-east get to play each other. Play some frisbee, meet some people, and party!
