Looking for a way to stay in shape and have fun this winter? Join Nelson’s first Indoor Ultimate Frisbee League.
Teams are actively recruiting new players for the upcoming indoor league on Monday nights at Soccer Quest beginning October 17. No matter what your experience level, there is a team that needs your skill set.
“I stumbled upon ultimate frisbee in the spring and asked the people playing if I could join in, even though I’d never played before,” says Kate Nott. “They said of course and now I’m completely hooked.
“There are a lot of great players who are willing to teach us newbies how to play. I was impressed with the range of age and ability. Our youngest player is 14 and our oldest is 54.
“Having moved to Nelson in March, playing ultimate frisbee has been a great way to get in shape and instantly make connections within the community.”
All you need to join the indoor league is a pair of running shoes and a willingness to run. No experience necessary.
Ultimate frisbee is a co-ed sport. Guys and gals are both invited.
Registration for the indoor league can be done in person at Soccer Quest or online at soccerquest.ca.
This summer, Nelson’s Ultimate Frisbee team, The Kootenay Killbillies, took part in three tournaments.
“We were B pool champions at both the Revelstoke and the Kamloops tournaments, and we came in 11th overall at the Vernon tournament,” says Amy MacKay. “Considering we were often playing teams from much larger cities, that’s amazing placement.”
