Luther Men's Ultimate Frisbee includes Luther Ultimate Flying Disc Association (LUFDA), our nationally-competitive A-team, and Pound, our less intense, yet still ambitious B-team. Together, we are a group of athletes who practice and train in order to compete at the highest level in this sport we love.
Both Luther Ultimate teams have both a fall and spring season. The fall season is generally used for practices and a handful of tournaments to build towards the more competitive spring season. In between the fall and spring seasons, any Luther Ultimate player will attest to the intense conditioning and practices over J-term. In the spring, both teams will practice hard and attend multiple tournaments in the Midwest and across the country to prepare for the USA Ultimate College Series that takes place in April and May. Thought of as the postseason, the USA Ultimate College Series consists of the Conference Championships, Regional tournaments, and the 'ultimate' goal for all teams, the National Championships.
In 2009, LUFDA made it all the way to the National Championships in Columbus, Ohio, for the first time where we finished in 11th place. We have continued our success by appearing in the National tournament three more times since 2009, finishing as high as 5th in 2012.
To our alumni, friends, family, Luther administration, and the Luther community, thank you for your continued support. We hope to see you all on the sidelines at some point this season.
