This is the official webpage for Purdue Men’s Ultimate Frisbee. We are a club sport at Purdue and compete at the collegiate level. We have practice from 5:30pm-7:45pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. During the fall, we host a home tournament and travel to two away tournaments.
Men’s ultimate is for all players of all skill levels. No experience is required, seriously, none is required. One of our current captains, Jacob “Specs” Fella, came to Purdue with no prior ultimate experience and now plays professional ultimate for the Indianapolis AlleyCats. The club emphasizes growing and developing new players as well as honing the skills of players with little prior experience.
If you are interested in playing ultimate at Purdue, our Fall semester callout is Tuesday August 23 at 6pm in CL50 room 224. Stop by to find out more information about the club and meet our team.
Can’t make it to the callout? Show up to the first practice with a white shirt, a dark colored shirt, water, cleats, and all your friends.

Q: Why is your name Tuba?
A: It’s a long story, ask me about it when you have at least 30 minutes of spare time.
Q: What got you into Ultimate?
A: I started playing when I was 13 at a summer camp. I was really short but I could run faster than other 13 year old and I was told by my counselors that ultimate was the only thing I was not awful at. I took it as a complement and started playing where and whenever I could.
Q: Who is your favorite ultimate player right now?
A: Cassidy Rasmussen
Q: How has ultimate helped you outside of the sport?
A: It has really taught me to manage my time. Having to balance my heavy course-load and attend practice regularly taught me how to be efficient and not goof off during my free time. Team veterans gave me really great advice that I still use today.
Q: What keeps you playing?
A: Not really sure, ultimate at Purdue is just really really fun. It also helps that we have an awesome team that is really hardworking and always pushing each other to do better.
Q: Coffee or Tea?
A: Tea, I heard it makes you jump higher.
