Ultimate Frisbee

Philosophy

Hotchkiss Ultimate is guided by the Spirit of the Game, and seeks to represent the School in the best light possible through fair play and respect for our opponents. Since the spring of 2000, only ten players have come with previous experience in the sport, so we take great joy in developing skills, building confidence, and strengthening the sense of community within our teams.

-- David Thompson, Head Coach, Varsity Ultimate Frisbee

Highlights

Since 2009, the varsity Ultimate Frisbee team at Hotchkiss has a 182-54 record and has won the Connecticut State championships in 2015 and 2018, won three New England Championships (2009, 2015, and 2019), and finished either second or third in New Englands in seven other years. More importantly, Hotchkiss has won numerous Spirit of the Game trophies, recognizing the positive attitude and commitment to fair play that the team upholds.

Facilities

In the spring we have two adjacent fully lined fields that allow us to divide the team into groups to focus on specific skills. We also have the possibility of playing on a lit turf field.
