  • Please have your player bring one disc with their names on it to each practice.  Our coaches recommend the discs below, follow the links. In addition, please have your player wear proper attire for Ultimate.  A solid pair of running shoes is of great importance for the gym. Rubber cleats are optional but strongly recommended for when we are outside on turf/grass field. Dress appropriately for weather conditions.  Furthermore, have your player bring a filled water bottle to each practice and game.
  • Disc recommendations: Ultrastar - https://www.amazon.com/Discraft-gram-Ultra-Star-Sport/dp/B002QSIUUG, Pulsar - https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00C1N1EQS

Players will still practice in the rain but will not practice if there is thunder/lighting.  If bad weather should start during a practice then the coaches will take shelter where appropriate.  Please remind your players to dress appropriately for practices or games.

It is not always easy to figure out the weather forecasts. If bad weather should start during the school day then a decision will be made by the Director of the school regarding the practice or match scheduled for that day as soon as possible.

If it is necessary to cancel a match or game earlier in the school day you will be notified by e-mail. Please check your e-mail regularly throughout the day during the season. 

To make any changes in dismissal due to weather or cancelations please call the main desk at 412-383-7026. 

Use your discretion to decide if you would like your child to participate in a match or game due to the weather conditions. Notify the main desk of any changes at 412-383-7026.
 

A parent/guardian must sign-out their player after each game or afternoon practice with a coach.  NO exceptions. 

If a player is not picked up immediately after a game or practice then the player will be signed into to the Extended Day Program and appropriate fees will be applied.

If your child is going home with another child’s parents, you MUST send in a note or an e-mail to the coaches giving your child permission to go home with that child’s parents. 

If the student does not give the coach a note then they will return back to Falk with everyone else.

Notes must be given in advance. All notes must be sent or turned in before 12:30 pm on the day of the game or practice. Coaches will not be able to retrieve them during a game or practice which can causes chaos and confusion at pick-up time.

If your middle school child is interested in participating in frisbee please read this information carefully and follow the specific instructions regarding the forms.
