We hope you consider attending. This year we are going to build off our successful tournament last year and make this year the best year of Breakaway yet. We’ll have bagels, bananas, and a solid set of swag for sale. If you have any questions you can email me at undueultimate@gmail.com.

I hope everyone is having a great start to the summer season and I will see y’all in the Fall.

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: How has ultimate helped you outside of the sport?

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?

About Undue Ultimate

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 5:45pm-8:00pm 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 and Team USA. 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, we have practices at the Black Fields by Follett’s Bookstore. In order to participate in practice, you need to have a concussion baseline test on record with Purdue Club Sports. For more information on concussion testing, e-mail us at undueultimate@gmail.com. Once you have a concussion test, show up to practice with a white shirt, a dark colored shirt, water, cleats, and all your friends.
