Ultimate Frisbee team won the 2016 ASU Ultimate Frisbee intraumural tournament. 


ASU’s Rams Ultimate Frisbee club hosted a tournament on the afternoon of Aug. 21 at the Campus Green.

Logan Drake, president of Rams Ultimate Frisbee, said he was asked if he wanted to host a tournament as a part of Rambunctious Week. 

“I knew it would be a great way to recruit more members, so I invited the incoming freshmen that I met at orientation, the returning members, as well as a few others from the floor I live on in my residence hall,” Drake said. 

He said despite the rain that morning, around 30 people still showed up for the tournament. 

“We picked four teams and started two separate games,” Drake said. “After each team finished their games, we took a break and decided to create two bigger teams to play a final game. We didn't keep track of winners and losers. We all came out to introduce the freshman to the sport, play frisbee and have fun.”

Rams Ultimate Frisbee is open to everyone and there are no requirements to join, he said. The club meets every Sunday from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. and occasionally holds meetings on Wednesdays, as well. 

“A typical practice usually starts with us working on our throws, which is followed by dividing into teams to play a match or two,” Drake said. “We encourage everyone to come out to at least one practice and try it for themselves. Whether you are pro or have never thrown a frisbee before, we welcome everyone to join us.”

The club also enters a few tournaments at different universities throughout the year. 

“Our travel team is very easy to be a part of, if you show up to the practices,” Drake said. “Everyone who travels with the team will get to play in the tournaments that they travel to.” 

Drake said the club does not currently have any plans for the Fall semester, but is actively seeking out tournaments to compete in. He said he hopes the club will be able to host a tournament at ASU this semester.
