Welcome to the State College Ultimate League (SCUL). This is a co-ed league for ultimate frisbee where everyone is welcome, especially beginners! SCUL was created to generate interest in the game, to teach folks how the game should be played, and most importantly, to have fun!!! Sign up on our mailing list to get regular updates, or read below for more information.
If you've never played ultimate before, check out The Ultimate Handbook. We are currently following 11th edition rules. An important aspect of ultimate frisbee is spirit. Ultimate’s underlying philosophy is sportsmanship and fair play. Competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of respect between players, adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play. Games should be played with an attitude of friendly competition, and teams should cheer each other after the games. Below are some links that might inspire your post-game celebrations:
Spirit of the Game
Each year, we acknowledge ultimate players that play the game the way it should be played. The Andy Jacobson Spirit of the Game Award represents a commitment to good sportsmanship, fair play, and dedication to the sport of ultimate frisbee. Below are the previous winners of this award.
*To nominate a player for the SOTG Award, email Mike Duffey with a short paragraph about why that player deserves the SOTG Award. Voting will take place during the playoffs to determine the winners.
Commissioner's Award (for lifetime service to our ultimate community)
Each year a committee drafts teams in an effort to make teams as evenly matched as possible. As a reminder, baggage requests are only accepted for couples and experienced players who are bringing novice players into the league.
Our schedule for the 2013 summer league will be posted as soon as possible. Early games begin promptly at 7, and late games begin at 9. Please show up early to warm up and to be ready to start your game on time. Also, note the location of your fields as we will be in two different locations throughout the year: West Campus Fields and Bigler Fields.
A word about weather: We will play in light rain, but not a driving rainstorm. We will not play if there is lightning in the area!!! Do not take shelter under trees if there is lightning! Go to your cars and await further instructions. In general, we will resume play 15 minutes after lightning has passed the area and/or is has stopped raining hard.
