Fields: Grass Description: CURRENT LOCATION: Montclair Park
A very casual game of parents (mostly Dads) and kids, ages range from about 3rd to 10th grade, then from about 35-55, with wide varieties of skill and fitness levels. We start at 9:30am, game usually starts around 9:45-10. We usually wrap up around 11:00-11:30. We play at Montclair Park.
We have a Teamsnap to track availability, send me an email if you have questions or want to join. Occasionally we don't have a quorum and cancel the game, but that's only a couple of times a year.
Here's a recent write-up we had in the local paper: https://www.eastbaytimes.com/2019/08/15/town-crier-ultimate-frisbee-proves-popular-in-parks-of-oakland-hills/
A few items that best give the flavor of our game, 1) Sidelines are more like guidelines, as long as you catch it, you can throw it back in. 2) We do let the younger kids play by kid rules, which means if they touch it but drop it, we count it as a catch where they touched it. Adults need to petition league commissioner for an exception to play by kid rules. (The kids are getting better since I wrote this so we don't have too many playing like this anymore. and taller. and faster. It really stinks.) 3) We kind of keep score, but some how we always end up in a tie around 10:30 when someone gasps "Next 2 out of 3 wins”. 4) Running is allowed, but not encouraged. (or to put it another way, "It’s been years since I played regularly, and I wasn’t fast then.") Seriously, you can usually match up pretty well with someone in your fitness/skill level. 5) It's about the journey, not the destination.
