A note to those interested in trying out Ultimate: All but about two of WUFO's members had no experience playing ultimate before coming to a WUFO practice. As an organization, WUFO prides itself on being accepting of new members of all levels, who join at any point during the year. If you are interested in frisbee, regardless of experience, email 07tpa@williams.edu or 07tek@williams.edu. Or just stop down at Poker Flats most days at 4PM; we will be happy to introduce you to the sport all of us have fallen in love with.

WUFO, or Williams Ultimate Frisbee Organization, boasts one of the largest organizations on campus. WUFO is a Co-Ed group (although it is subdivided into WUFO and La Wufa), is run by students, and includes a fall club season with A and B teams, a fall IM season, a spring break trip, and a spring college season with A and B teams.

Unlike NCAA run sports, Ultimate Frisbee is run by the UPA (www.upa.org) and all colleges compete in one large division broken into regions. As a result, Williams often finds itself competing against schools more than 10 times its size. Despite this, WUFO has had varied success over the years, most recently winning the West New England sectional tournament 2005 through 2007 and sending teams to Nationals in 2003 and 2007.

In addition to sporting an A-team and 2 B-teams, WUFO members are often lifelong friends and frequently come back to visit one another and current Wufites. Wufo alums (or Kraftees) have gone on to play and coach many NE teams; most notable is WUFO's presence on DoG and Twisted Metal, two NE club teams who are both top 10 nationally.


Bonibusses (sic) are green,
Mountains are purple,
I like the dean,
But WUFO is psyched.

no hassle, no pain, no damage to the brain
