The 2011-2012 academic school year may be over, but nothing slows down for Bellarmine’s ultimate frisbee team’s brass as it looks forward to the Fall 2012 semester.
After competing in its first-ever tournaments in 2011, the Knights are looking to build upon that next fall. In addition to officially registering with USA Ultimate, the team hopes to compete in more tournaments in the fall, while also possibly bringing nearby teams such as Louisville and Northern Kentucky to Bellarmine to compete in friendly matches.
But the team’s biggest plan for the fall is the hosting of its own tournament. After traveling around Kentucky and Indiana, the Knights are hoping to bring teams from the Kentucky and Indiana areas in to Louisville.
Hosting a tournament is not an easy task, which is why the team is going to have members working on organization and planning throughout the summer, contacting teams, reserving fields, working with area hotels, among other tasks that need to be completed. A successful hosting of a tournament will not only spread Bellarmine’s name in the frisbee community, but also brings forth the potential hosting of future tournaments, so a lot is riding on the success of this fall’s tournament.
