In early March, on an unexpectedly warm winter day in Washington, DC, the SWW Ultimate Team (Flightless Bird Squad) took to the fields. As a young group, the team had plenty to learn and wasted no time. New coach Evan Carter was there to lead the FBS with lots of  infectious energy and commitment to the sport.

The 16 players began learning Ultimate Frisbee basics: throwing, catching, cutting, marking, and offensive and defensive theory. Intermittent snow storms and frigid temperatures haven’t made it easy, but the FBS has persevered with regular practices.  Returning players assisted the rookies and, after several tough and muddy practices, the FBS is ready for their first game next week.

The FBS team is excited for a great season, and looks forward to several scheduled games along with the Maryland State Tournament on May 3rd and 4th. The squad needs your support!! Come watch the first game against Washington Latin on our home field on the National Mall, near the Lincoln Memorial on Monday, March 24 from 3:45pm-6:00pm.
