Throughout the fall and spring seasons, Colby’s teams play other New England colleges and universities.
In the fall, the season is mostly coed, with an emphasis on player development and fun scrimmaging. The fall season also features fun, mostly mixed tournaments around the New England area.
In the spring, we split into men’s and women’s A teams, where practice is more mandatory, team workouts are regular, and play gets more competitive . Depending on interest, there usually is either a men’s, women’s or mixed B team for those not looking to play as competitively. The A teams travel all around the east cost, playing tournaments from upstate New York down to New Jersey. Over Spring break, we all take a group trip down to South Carolina to participate in the High Tide Ultimate Tournament, which is a great way to bond and develop as a team. The spring season culminates with sectionals, regionals, and maybe even nationals if we’re good enough!
We typically practice from 4:00-6:00 on the weekdays, and we have various tournaments on the weekends throughout the fall and spring. If you would like to learn more about the team, don’t be afraid to contact us. Make sure to visit us at the club fair too!
