A word from the President:
Firstly, a huge welcome to the Mohawks website. We are the Mohawks, however our full name is the University of Sussex Ultimate Frisbee Club (I prefer Mohawks personally!). I assume that, by being on this website, you are interested in starting to play with us or have indeed begun playing by coming to a training. In that case then waste no more time and sign up to the website to receive regular email updates and join the lively debate in the forum. The forum is a great place to get involved in the club, where you will find all the information you will ever need about the club, socials, tournaments and more!
This website is fantastic, but I do hope that you won’t stay on the website the whole time, but come and meet us at our training sessions and socials (if you haven’t already!). If you know very little about the sport, or if you know loads already, we will be delighted to see you. I discovered the Mohawks 2 years ago and I fell in love immediately – I hope the same thing happens to you! See you soon!
Mohawks President 2012/13
We train at least twice a week as a club but there is always an opportunity for you to buy a disc and chuck around with friends.
Our main outdoor training sessions (bring football boots if you have them) :
- WEDNESDAY 3-5pm – Russell’s Clump – this is our main practice each week with coaches!
- FRIDAY 2-4pm – Russell’s Clump – less formal and a chance to practice what you want to practice.
We also have several indoor sessions - all experience levels welcome.
- The first is Friday 5th October at 2-4pm at the main sports centre – check the Google Calendar for others!
Make sure you wear CLEAN, non-marking shoes for indoor trainings and for all sessions bring a light and a dark shirt (red is considered light).
