For an introduction to the game of Ultimate, see Basics of Ultimate Frisbee

WUFO, the Williams Ultimate Frisbee Organization, is perhaps the largest student organization 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.


A note to those interested in trying out Ultimate: nearly all 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, contact us 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.


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.

Every spring, WUFO holds the Purple Valley Tournament.

A unofficial but deeply entrenched part of the WUFO culture is the holding of creative theme parties. There is even an elected member of the WUFO board dedicated to planning these events, the Master/Mistress of Vice. Parties are typically not quite invite-only but not all-campus either.



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

no hassle, no pain, no damage to the brain
