Who Are We?
Welcome! to the Dartmouth Men's Ultimate Frisbee team. If you're interested in playing ultimate at Dartmouth please check out our Get Involved section, or contact the captains! We are excited to meet you. No prior experience required!
The Dartmouth Ultimate community is composed of the men's A team: The Pain Train , the men's B team: Discomfort Trolley (Disco Troll for short), the women's A team: Princess Layout, and the women's B team: Princess B-ride. Check out the women's web page to see what they are all about.For an idea of what the sport can look like, check this out. Keep an eye out at 3:02 -- that's former Pain Train-er Adam Sigelman '05 getting a layout Callahan (catching a goal on defense) at the 2005 Club National Championships.
is a fast-paced, high-energy sport that combines the fluidity of soccer, athleticism of basketball, agility of football and aerodynamics of rotational motion into an incredibly fun, competitive experience. Here at Dartmouth Ultimate we welcome players of all skill levels, some who play at an extremely competitive level and work hard to bring their team to Nationals, and others who play for a good time, good company, and a fun workout.
Beyond the Sport
Dartmouth Ultimate is all about community. All four teams eat and hang out together frequently. The Dartmouth Ultimate family is a great place to meet new people and make lasting friendships and play an awesome sport.
We are a community of people who play the sport we love together (traveling all over the country to do it), hang out a ton together, and work hard together. We've been around for more than 30 years (founded in 1977) and are going strong. Dartmouth Ultimate has four teams -- men's A, men's B, women's A, and women's B. Also known as (respectively): the Pain Train, the Discomfort Trolley (or Disco Troll), Princess Layout, and Princess B-ride. There's a niche for everyone in the Dartmouth Ultimate family. For many of us, Dartmouth Ultimate is the most important and meaningful aspect of college. Many of us see Dartmouth Ultimate as our college family. Come see why!
Students who play ultimate Frisbee are often a close-knit group of friends that spend time together outside of the Frisbee field. Teams usually have a meeting area where they can watch movies or just relax.
What's with the names? Did one of you get in an unfortunate locomotive accident?
We were inspired by the best that Madison Avenue can deliver (hint: 1:23):YouTube - Terry Tate Office Linebacker
"Pain Train"? "Discomfort Trolley"? Let me guess, your C-team (when you create one) is called the "Sore Caboose."
Um, wow. Yeah, that's what we call them. Oh, and our alums are known (affectionately) as the "Arthritic Carriage." (And sometimes "Dartmouth Die-nasty.")
