WWWJ Ultimate



We are Poets & Pitchers, an Ultimate Frisbee team primarily for students at Walt Whitman (Poets) and Walter Johnson (Pitchers) high schools in Bethesda, Maryland.  We also have a lot of players from Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School. 

Ultimate is a fun, popular, and athletic team sport. Our players learn individual skills, team strategies, and sportsmanship, including the spirit of the game.  We practice and compete in spring and fall primarily in leagues organized by the Washington Area Frisbee Club (WAFC). No previous experience is required to join our team. Both boys and girls are encouraged to play.
