Ultimate frisbee is one of the fastest growing sports in the world, especially among college students! Here at UConn our team continues to spread the sport of Ultimate by teaching tons of new recruits how to throw, cut and score with only a flat piece of plastic and eight cones.
As a group we encourage team spirit and enjoyment of the sport above all else, while maintaining a competitive and athletic nature with weekly practices and workouts all throughout the school year. We have two seasons of tournaments, Fall (minor) and Spring (major). Tournaments are in the surrounding area and states against other college women’s teams. By the seasons end, we compete at sectionals and regionals where we have a history of upsetting our seed and coming closer and closer to nationals each year. In the spring of 2017 UConn Women’s Ultimate came in first place at Regionals, earning our first ever bid to College Nationals. This was done alongside our Men’s program, that earned their second bid to College Nationals. UConn’s dual championship history doesn’t stop at basketball!
In recent years our program has grown so large that we were able to split into two teams, A and B, each based on skill level. Each team has their own set of captains, practices and tournaments, thus providing each player with the attention and play time they need to improve. Our program goal, especially after our necessary two-team split, is to always stick together as one large frisbee family… even if that means squeezing 40 people into a tiny living room for a pasta party.
O’hana means family. And family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.
