Welcome to Freedom Ultimate Now
Freedom Ultimate Now (FUN!) is an Ultimate pickup game that has been meeting at Hodge's Park in Eldersburg, MD since 2006. The group, both intergenerational and coed, welcomes all who are willing to run.
So What Exactly Is Ultimate?
Ultimate is a non-contact sport that is played with a flying disc. It combinesing the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football into a fact-paced high-action game. Ultimate is played world-wide. USA Ultimate is the National Governing Body for the sport of Ultimate in the US. A large amount of info on the sport is available at USA Ultimate's website.

A group of friends began playing in Eldersburg in the summer of 2006 and in October of that year became affiliated with the Freedom Area Recreation Council and the Carroll Country Recreation and Parks. Since then pick-up has been played weekly from April until November at Hodges Park in Eldersburg.
You are encouraged to attend! All we ask is a registration form (linked below) and a small monetary contribution to support field usage. You can’t get much cheaper than this sport, but, there are a few expenses we need to cover.
Water is essential. Bring both a white and dark shirt to make team selections easier. Please do not bring grey! Cleats come in awfully handy but tennis shoes do the trick. Field markers and discs are provided.
A quick word on discs; Ultimate is not normally played with a Wham-O “Frisbee” anymore. In 1991, Discraft was selected as the “official” game disc with their 175-Gram 'Ultra-Star' (we usually have some around for sale). Any disc that is labeled a 'Frisbee' or 'Frisbee Disc' is not a regulation disc.
So come on out and throw whatever you've got. Frisbee, Ultra-star, anything. We are certain that Fred Morrison will be smiling down on you from heaven.
