Frisbee Rob Named as One of the Top 75 Disc Golf Blogs on the Web

Travel Fatigue

Ever since I started playing ultimate frisbee in 2001, it’s not uncommon for me to take 5-10 trips out of the city every year with a handful of those trips to the USA. It was never a challenge for me to take time off from work or school since my trips were for 2-3 tournaments. (more…)

It was my first time in France and it was incredible! My reason for being there was to run the WFDF communications, manage the accredited media, produce The Ulti Show, film interviews and create highlight videos, and work with The Stream Team, a talented group of cameramen, technical production and commentators that ended up livestreaming more than 120 games. (more…)

The Future of the Sport of Flying Disc

There has been a lot of discussion recently surrounding the Olympic movement and what the chances are that ultimate will be included in 2024. The chances are very good.
