Colorado State University’s Ultimate Frisbee team is a sport club. Sport Clubs are organizations that give students the opportunity to play their favorite sport at a competitive level. Division I (NCAA) programs and sport club teams simply have different levels of funding, and sport club teams do not recruit or have full time coaches. As a sport club, the team receives a limited annual budget from student fee allocations and generates most of their operating budget from dues and fundraising activities.
The club has been a member of the Ultimate Players Association since the late 1980s, and continues to grow each year. Tryouts are held in the fall, and there are generally about 25 members on the team. Ultimate Frisbee’s main season is during the spring semester, and practices are held three days a week from 4-6 p.m., or 5-7 p.m. Participating on a sport club team is a good way to keep that competitive edge and have fun enjoying the sport.
