Last Saturday (October 10), Stanford Women's Ultimate kicked off the fall season by hosting a fun tournament for local teams where the emphasis was on the rookies. Cal, Santa Cruz, and Santa Clara all joined us in bringing out new recruits and letting them take the field. The rookies played phenomenally and many earned little spirit prizes from the opponents. At the end of the day, we all celebrated with a pizza party!
We can't wait to see how the rest of the season goes!
SWU at BAM! Happy Canadian Thanksgiving, everyone.
This past week, we had over fifty flatballers come out to Stanford Women's Ultimate practices, new and old. Over the course of the two practices, we learned a whole lot - everything from how to throw to everyone's favorite piece of athletic clothing. Check out some of the photos from Monday!

We'll be formally kicking off a fun-filled Fall Quarter of ultimate this week! Best of all, this fun has no requirements - come one, come all, beginners and veterans alike! No expertise necessary, just bring yourself, athletic clothing, water, and a disc (also known as a Frisbee) if you have one. Here's what to look forward to:
