Did you know that Alameda has the High School State Champion Ultimate Frisbee team? Did you know they have held this title for EIGHT STRAIGHT YEARS?
Did you know there is also an Ultimate middle school team?
Well, there is, they are, and your child can join this juggernaut of athleticism. Ultimate Frisbee combines the speed of soccer, the handling finesse of basketball, and the feel of "just playing" from childhood. Plus, incredible, positive sportsmanship.
Alameda's Dark Meat Ultimate team (a mix of all high school's students) is hosting a middle school/high school clinic and exhibition game at upper Washington field, November 18th, starting at 2pm. There will be instruction from the great coaches of the State Championship team that's appropriate for absolute beginners. At only $10 admission ($15 gets you admission plus a barbecue dinner, $5 for food + spectating), it's a real bargain entry point.
Then, at 5:00 there is a raffle for some great prizes, followed by an exciting exhibition game between Alameda's #1 Dark Meat team and the #2 ranked Berkeley High Coupe team.

Even if you're not eligible to play, we'd love your support
