Mississippi State University Ultimate Club Team: Dark Horse
We are a competitive ultimate club team that travels to various tournaments throughout the Southeast. Founded in 2006, the team has grown from a handful of players to a program with around 30+ students.
Our team is made up of athletes from almost every sport. As a group, we lettered in at least 10 different varsity sports (Football, Baseball, Basketball, Soccer, Swimming, Track, Cross Country, Bowling, Tennis, and Lacrosse).
Fall 2015 & Tryouts
Tryouts for the team will be late August and possibly run into early September. After tryouts, practice will be 2 to 3 times a week. We will travel to our first tournament of the fall season in October, and 2 more tournaments in November.
If you are interested in trying out for the team in the fall of 2015 please fill out this form.
We will send more information via email closer to the beginning of the fall semester.
Please Read Before Trying Out
All Mississippi State University undergraduate students and graduate students are welcome to tryout. Individuals with positive attitudes, sportsmanship, upstanding character, and time management skills are necessary for joining our program. We practice 3 times a week for the fall and spring. We travel to tournaments 3 times during the fall and 6 times in the spring, and both require a full weekend's time.
Becoming a member of the team requires a similar level of commitment to varsity athletics in high school. We strongly encourage incoming freshman with a history of high school athletics to join us for tryouts. Prior ultimate experience is not necessary for tryouts, but strongly encouraged.
Our advice for incoming freshman/rookies is to throw as much as possible before tryouts and watch ultimate on YouTube.
Throwing instructional videos.
See you on the fields!
