Snow College has an Ultimate Frisbee club that plays two to three times a week. Students you migh have seen them playing in the gym, or on the practice field. However, unbeknownst to many students, there’s also a Snow College Ultimate Frisbee team.
Last year (during spring semester), they traveled to a tournament in St. George, where they competed with SUU, BYU, and other college and university ultimate Frisbee teams. Later in the semester, SUU was invited to come play at Snow as well. SUU accepted, and they came to Ephraim and played a few friendly but competitive games.
This semester, Snow’s Ultimate Frisbee team has been invited to three tournaments: SUU, BYU, and Vegas.
(one of Snow’s ultimate frisbee co-captains) says, “Many people seem to think that ultimate frisbee is just a bunch of passing and lobbing the frisbee around, if they even knew it was an actual sport at all. But honestly, they couldn’t be more wrong. Ultimate frisbee is a complicated, and very competitive sport, which can’t be mastered overnight. I’ve been playing for going on five years, and I am still improving, and learning new things. However, possibly the most important and memorable thing about ultimate frisbee is the people. The people that play ultimate, are some of the nicest people I’ve ever met, and it gives the game a great, uncommon, and welcoming atmosphere. ”
Ultimate frisbee has been recognized as an olympic sport as of last year, and is one of the fastest growing sports in the nation.
