Main Description

First thing, don't speed in the forest preserve. We've had a few individuals get pulled over / ticketed for going like 25 (the limit is 15).

More people show up than the number that RSVP! We usually have at least a game of 5-on-5 going, and almost, almost always have at least 7-on-7. (Winter games are the exception. We still play, but numbers are often weaker.)

We are a pick-up game. Not any sort of championship game. Don't worry about "letting your team down" or anything like that. This is a great way to get outside, get in a good amount of running, and to meet new friends.

All ages and ability levels are welcome ~ we really mean this. Our youngest player was 10 (now 11 or 12), our oldest was 73 before he called it quits (he still comes to picnics). We have a group of people that play multiple times a week in leagues, and then we have new players come who we teach to play on the field. Some of us are in really good physical shape - others get winded after a few runs up the field. It is a great time and you will fit right in!

The most important thing - this is a pickup game. Our skill levels vary quite a bit. Again, we have league/club/college players and we have completely new folks. If you want to be competitive, match up against someone else playing competitively. If you're a beginner, match up against the other beginners (And ask questions!). We enjoy learning strategy, playing a good game, and getting in a workout - but we are mainly out here to play and have fun.

We distinguish teams by "light" colors (usually white) and "dark" colors (usually everything else). Try to bring a WHITE and a dark (NOT GREY) to each game, so we can make teams even. At the very least, please don't wear grey. It's neither light nor dark and is really good at confusing people in the heat of the game.

The games basically run themselves. So when you come, just jump in. Everyone is really friendly. We were all new to the group once before.

BUSSE ULTIMATE IS BACK! Golf and Ring Rd entrance

Online event

I am happy to say that Busse Ultimate is back!

We've had excellent numbers out playing so far let's keep it up!

With Covid numbers on the decline, vaccines becoming more widely available and mask mandates being lifted for outdoor activities we feel the time is now to start up ultimate again for anyone who is comfortable in playing.

Back to play guidelines:

1) If you are feeling sick, STAY HOME! In addition at anytime during play if you feel sick please stop playing and let us know.
2) If you've been exposed to anyone with Covid within the past two weeks please for the safety of others stay home.
2) Mask wearing will be optional. If you are not yet comfortable in being in close proximity to others you are welcome to join on the sideline to toss/socialize.
3) Please limit handshakes/hugs/high-fives etc. Scoring can be exciting but let's play smart and safe.
4) Do not share food/drinks
5) HAVE FUN! For most of us it has been a long time since playing, so enjoy it.

Please RSVP if you will be attending so we have a rough estimate of attendees. If we have too many we will split into multiple smaller games.

The fields we will play on are at Busse Woods at the Golf Rd entrance just off of 290. For GPS directions type in golf and ring rd. Once you turn into the preserve we will be on the fields to the left.

Hope to see you all back out on the fields!
