We have trainings every Wednesday at 1-4pm on Russell’s Clump, opposite the sports centre. We welcome beginners at any time through the year so come down and give it a go! We also have training sessions for the more keen of you every Tuesday from 4-6pm on the 3G pitch at Falmer Sports Complex.
We have two taster sessions scheduled in freshers week, both located at the large 3G. Come and see us at freshers fair to find out which days they are.
What will they involve?
We are a ‘welcome to all’ sports club. There are no trials and everyone is invited to play no matter what level of ‘sportiness’ you have. Nearly everyone starts Ultimate Frisbee at university as a beginner so it’s open to everyone.
The taster sessions will involve a quick meet & greet, then the coaches will explain and demonstrate the basic throws before groups of 2 or 3 beginners go out with a more experienced player and practice getting the hang of the throws. After this, we’ll jump into small-sided games (teams of 3-5 players) for some fast-paced fun frisbee for the rest of the taster session before heading to Falmer Bar.
Bring plenty of water, and a light & dark shirt for when we divide into teams.
If you enjoy it, later trainings throughout the first term will incorporate learning about more of the techniques of ultimate frisbee such as marking, cutting, throwing for distance, offensive and defensive formations.
