Join us Sunday afternoons for a casual game of Ultimate Frisbee or just a bit of disc tossing and socialisation. Beginners are especially welcome.
Because many of our regulars are a bit lazy, they don't RSVP here. Don't worry - we always have enough people to play. Head over to the Amsterdam Ultimate Frisbee Facebook group for on-the-day information and any questions.
1) What if I’m out of shape or can’t throw a Frisbee?
No problem, really! We’re a very casual group and get plenty of beginners. We’re happy to spread the joy and teach beginners the basics down. We also rotate the teams to keep things even.
2) Can I arrive late?
Honestly, most people come late. We don’t usually start a game until after an hour of tossing in a circle and the teams are constantly changing as people sub on/off, so you can join when you like. You might also just stop by near the end to join us for a drink.
3) What is Ultimate Frisbee?
You have two teams and one disc. The offense must throw the disc between each other without running with it until they can catch it in the end-zone. The defense tries to knock the disc down in flight. It’s non-contact and you can see evidence of it’s origins in 1960’s counterculture with rules designed to keep everything harmonious. Officially, it’s played on a football-sized field with seven players per side, but we normally shrink the field a bit to make it a more friendly size.
You can find a decent introduction of the rules at http://www.wfdf.org/sports/ultimate.
4) In case of bad weather, is the event cancelled? If so, how will we be notified?
We almost never cancel an event, rain or shine. But if that happens, or we change the location because our normal field is occupied by an event, we will send out messages via Meetup.com and Facebook to inform everybody.
5) How many people do you usually get?
On the nicest summer days we can have enough for two full games with subs but even on miserable winter Sundays you can expect a few of the rain-or-shine crew to show up. Even four people is enough to play a fun variant called hot-box.
6) How can I find the field?
Check the specific events for the location that week. If you're early or in case of trouble you can always call/SMS Devin at[masked]-4214.
