Ultimate Frisbee Club

King’s Ultimate Frisbee Club played a stunning game last Sunday!  The final score was a close 6 – 9 against one of the best teams in the league.

Sign-up is closing soon, and we are looking for a few more players.  Ultimate season ends before Spring sports start, and it is a great way to have fun and back into shape.  Email Coach Scott (kingsultimatefriseeclub@gmail.com) for more information.
