Princess B-Ride, or the Dartmouth Women's B-team, is the more flexible, fun-loving sister of Princess Layout. B-Ride players range from complete beginners to former or future A-teamers, and every skill level in between. Depending on what players want, B-Ride can provide a serious developmental experience for those looking to make A-team in the future, a fun athletic option, or just a great group of women to get to know and have fun with. In fact, for many players, it fills all three of these roles!
In recent years, B-Ride has chosen to work hard and play as a competitive women's B-team in the New England region, going to several tournaments each spring as well as playing in national B-team tournaments like Virginia is for Layouts over spring break (WOOOOO!). B-Ride is ALWAYS open to beginners, so long as they can put up with our constant cheers, our enjoyment of playing Ultimate in skirts, and general sassiness.

Celebrity Testimonial from Ellen Page:
"One time after a red carpet event, I went to a B-Ride practice, and man, it was a great time. Everyone was really accepting of me even though I didn't know much about ultimate and also I was pregnant. I really loved the warmups, when I got to walk funny and roll around on the ground. Things got even better when I caught a disc and scored! Someone told me it didn't count unless I spiked it, so I did that too. It was exhilarating. If I could give my fans one piece of advice, it would be to play for Dartmouth Princess B-Ride. Do it, you won't."
