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. 
  • Whitman and Johnson Teams Return for Fall 2019
    The back-to-school sales are on, so it's time to start planning for the fall ultimate season. It should be a fun season. Here's what we know so far.  

    • Sign-up:  Every player and a parent must complete the TEAM REGISTRATION FORM. Yes, even if you've done it before. That way we know who is in and can get the required waivers signed. 
    • Practices: Practices will start on August 27 and 29, 5:00 to 7:00 p.m., and will be held on Tuesdays and Thursdays through September and October. Practices will be held at NIH Field. 
    • Recruiting event: August 28, New Student Cookout and WJ Club Information Night – 6:00 p.m. Held in the bus loop area in front of the school.
    • Games: Montgomery Rec league games will begin on Sunday, September 15. There will be one or two games every Sunday, except October 6, through at least November 3. This fall league games will be held at North Four Corners Local Park.
    • Tournaments: We are proud to be part of the Washington Area Youth Ultimate Fall Fling October 5-6. Other tournaments/special events are TBD.
    • Costs: The team dues are $100 for the season and cover coaches' stipends; USA Ultimate coaching memberships including background checks; tournament entry fees; and basic equipment. A separate payment of $69 to our league, Montgomery Rec, will also be required. 

    We are very glad to have coaches Rob, Natalie, and Alex back, and they are looking forward to seeing you. Please help look for new players and contact me with any questions/ideas.
