Sean Mack's ATX Adventures: Ultimate Disc League

Another local team to root for!

April 8, 2019

Over the weekend, I was invited to an Ultimate Disc League game.  What is that, you might be asking yourself?  I was doing the same thing-that's how I ended up at the battle between the Austin Sol and the Raleigh Flyers Saturday night.

So the sport is kind of equal parts touch football and soccer, but with a frisbee...and yet that doesn't really describe it at all.  Two teams play against each other and try to score points by moving down the field, throwing the disc to each other.  Here's an example of the Sol scoring a point:

There's a lot of fast-paced action, even an occasional collision or two!  Plus they throw out discs to the crowd after every point scored by the Sol, I managed to grab one(by standing up and waving my hands like a madman).

Check them out this spring, it's a fun time!
