Normally, playing sports in the dark seems like the best way to break an ankle or two, but Glow
Frisbee will be a fun way to meet the Pirate Ultimate team and learn the sport. Last year, there
was a turnout of about 60 people and the team’s goal is to top that number this year. Members
hope to interest new people in coming to tryouts for the spring season.
“I’ve heard about the Glow Frisbee event,” senior music education major Robert Kirkum, said.
“I feel like it’s going to be a great time and I hope this will help bring more people out for
tryouts next week.”
Pirate Ultimate Vice President Brett Becker explained that members compete against other
colleges across the nation. “You get a chance to meet players from other teams that you would
never have gotten a chance to meet otherwise, as well as compete with them on a college level,”
Becker said. “The ultimate community as a whole is amazing,”
During the spring season, Pirate Ultimate travels to different colleges in the south, playing in
tournaments for the weekend.
Tryouts will be held Sept. 30 and Oct. 1 from 7–9 p.m. on the Intramural Fields. Students are
encouraged to participate. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
