Poets and Pitchers Ultimate is back for Fall 2021!



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.

  • Fall 2021
    After a crazy year, Poets & Pitchers will get back to almost normal this fall! We plan to compete in the Montgomery Recreation high school league on Sunday afternoons and hold regular practices on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. We will also compete in the Fall Fling regional high school tournament. CLICK Here to Register.

    Some new rules will be in effect. Coronavirus vaccinations are required for all players and coaches. We will also take other basic precautions like not sharing water bottles and forgoing the usual after-match handshakes with our opponents. For now, masks will be optional. We will monitor recommendations and requirements from the CDC and Montgomery County, and masking and other rules are subject to change. We will also abide by whatever rules Montgomery Recreation or the Washington Area Frisbee Club put in place for the matches in which we participate.  

    Here are key dates for the upcoming Fall Ultimate season:

    8/25 - 6:00 p.m., WJ New Student Cookout 
    8/28 - First Practice at NIH Field, 11:00 a.m to 12:30 p.m  
    8/30 - First day of school
    8/31 - First Tuesday--Thursday practice, 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. (Continues throughout the season except as noted)
    9/7  -  No Tuesday practice, school holiday
    9/16 - No Thursday practice, school holiday
    9/19 - First Montgomery Recreation game. Plan on games every Sunday afternoon (except Fall Fling) through early November 
    10/9-10/10 - WAFC Fall Fling Regional Tournament, Fairfax, Va.
    11/7 - Montgomery Recreation Tournament, end of fall season

    Cost for the fall will be as follows:

    - $100 payable to the team (helps to pay a small stipend to our coaches and for equipment)
    - $79 payable to Montgomery Recreation for our league 
    - Approximately $30 for a jersey. Jersey money will be figured out and collected later after we know how many players we have and the jerseys can be ordered, printed, and delivered.
