Los Angeles Organization of Ultimate Teams

Free Agents

  • We often have a ‘free agent’ team.  This is organized by someone on the list who wants to play, but can’t find a team.  If that’s you, just start emailing the people who sign up here.  If you have questions, email Goat.

If you’re just interested in trying to join a Mixed Division team (we only have a mixed division in this league), leave a note.

Either way, please leave the following information here

1. Name / Gender
2. Contact info
3. playing experience on grass
4. playing experience on beach
5. last beach team you played with
6. height
7. how much you love beach ultimate and other important information

If you have been picked up on a team, please notify Goat  LABeachUltimate at gmail (dot) com, and he will remove your information from the list.

See you on the sand

    7. Hiiiii I’d like to play on a good times mixed team — I’m new to the city and not a complete garbage person: I’m a web developer, writer + comedian. zoejokes.com is my website and also my Twitter handle so you can see what kind of person I am IF YOU SO DESIRE. I like winning evenly matched games and I broke my collarbone laying out last summer so I probably won’t do a ton of that.

    7. Well I am leaving a comment hoping to get picked up. That shows a pretty deep admiration right?
    Important information uhhh… I can rip a phone in half with my bare hands. Well no that’s a lie. Sometimes I lie. My hands only have the capability to perform everyday tasks and toss circular objects close to 175g distances that exceed the normal range for such activities.

    3. Started playing at Tufts, A-team (Emen) for 3 years, nationals in ’09… then began my laborious transition into being an old dude, playing various summer & rec leagues around NYC and LA. Won a few WUDi championships in the meantime too if that means anything? Took the last 3 or so seasons off, just finished an LAOUT summer league run though (grass fields are BIG!) with about 50% attendance – but getting there!
    4. 6 Wildwoods and 4 LeiOuts, and 2 or 3 seasons of Beach here in Santa Monica.
    5. LeiOut Spring ‘Goth Kids’

    7. oh man this question is a lot of pressure to write something funny and attractive but i’ve been out of the online dating game for a while so idk if I can still pull this off… how about: I love frisbee enough to not harshly judge the kids from tufts that got Emen tattoos in the years after I graduated. Also one time I drank a whole disc full of beer and didn’t even puke until way later in the night.

    4. Wildwood 8 times, Lei Out 3 times, and Beach Nationals twice
    5. I just moved to LA, so I haven’t played on any league teams here

    7. I play in every beach tournament I can, organizing a group for Wildwood (I moved from Baltimore) each of the past 7 years. In the future I plan to play almost exclusively beach, because several shoulder dislocations keep me from laying out on grass. It’s cliche to say that I’m “a fun guy” or something, but I’ve captained and managed a regionals-level men’s team for the past 4 seasons, so I guess some people like hanging out and playing with me.

    3. 9 years or so I guess? College, club, league, stupid grass tournaments, not stupid grass tournaments. I play what many would consider to be “a lot of ultimate.”
