Why play frisbee when you can play ultimate frisbee?
Think of that fast, fun and friendly flying disc (frisbee) you used to play with as a kid. Now imagine playing it with a team. Welcome to the wonderful world of ultimate frisbee.
Players pass the frisbee from team mate to team mate until someone catches it in the endzone (something like a cross between gridiron and netball, minus the balls).
If you're looking for a challenge, push yourself in the training sessions for Unigames.
Or if you're a beginner, join in with social games and friendly coaches will guide you through the drills and skills.
What you can expect:
We organise weekly trainings where coaches help members develop their ultimate skills and cultivate a love for the sport. We run social events like barbeques, beach trainings and End of Term social nights. Members of our club have the opportunity to represent UNSW at tournaments against other Australian universities, as well as gain the relevant expertise to become club players outside of the university sport season. We bring together people from all degrees and stages of uni life for a good time.
Wednesdays and Sundays are UniGames trainings, we go through skills, drills and play scrimmages to prepare for the various university tournaments in the year. Thursdays are our social trainings, where we play frisbee-themed games but don't focus on team development.
We offer a two-week trial period at the start of the year for students to see whether our club is something they want to commit to.
Preparation for UniGames? Wednesday and Saturday trainings are all about preparing for UniGames!
Training times and locations:
Wednesdays (5-7pm, David Phillips Sports Complex)
Thursday Social Trainings (TBA)
Saturdays (1:30-4:30pm, Centennial Park OR Peggy Wormsley Reserve, Carlingford)

Membership in our clubs gives you access to two coached training sessions each week for the duration of the UNSW terms. It also allows you to represent the university at tournaments and access to all club-run social events. This year we'll be running an intensive training camp during Term 1 run by a former Team Australia player! This event will be open to club members only.
