Ultimate Frisbee Club

We were started in the fall of 2013 and our mission is to spread the love of Ultimate to the Elizabethtown College campus and community. By sharing the "Spirit of the Game" we foster an inclusive environment where everyone can come to play regardless of experience. The club hopes to facilitate healthy and friendly athletics for the college as a way to de-stress during the semester. As a competitive team, the Jelly Swatters’ will is to compete against other teams around the immediate area in Ultimate scrimmages and tournaments.
