Description: One of the more beginner-friendly, female-friendly, and family-friendly ultimate frisbee pickup games in Austin, the Frisbee-ish ultimate pickup game is co-ed, every Sunday there’s decent weather, and runs about 10:00am to about 12:30pm. When it’s hot, we definitely try to get started by 930, but people arrive as late as 12 and are quickly subbed in.
New frisbee players are encouraged to arrive early so they can work on throws and harvest the wisdom of the old farts. Parents, there are a lot of friendly kids whose parents play and who run around in a gaggle entertaining each other during the game. The field has swings, playsets, and a shaded blacktop.
lots of cold water
cleats if you have them
a good attitude
trimmed fingernails are recommended
a light and a dark shirt so we can tell what team you’re on.
We welcome high-skill level players – we have a bunch – but remember that this is a goofball game. We’ve had players from seven to seventy years of age. Please dish the disk to the newbies when possible and be nice if they drop it. And if you’re the person dropping the disk — don’t worry, we’ve all bolluxed up easy catches more times than you can imagine.
We’re playing at Pillow Elementary, 3025 Crosscreek near Burnet and 183.
If it’s between 50 and 110F and mostly dry, we’re probably playing.
