We are the University of Pittsburgh Men's Club Ultimate program, En Sabah Nur, known by our iconic winged Virtruvian Man and sustained success at the highest level of College Ultimate. We are a brotherhood on and off the field that plays with intensity and spirit.
We are one of the strongest college ultimate programs in the country, and won College Nationals back-to-back in 2012 and 2013. Last year, we played in an instant classic semifinal, but came up just short losing to eventual champions Minnesota. Additionally, the first Callahan Award winner from Pitt was awarded to Trent Dillon last season.
Pitt B Ultimate has a long history due to the overall strength of the Pitt Ultimate program. Pitt B Ultimate won the Emerging Powerhouses division at last year's Florida Warm-Up for their first tournament win in 5 years. We also had our highest ever regionals finish at 10th in the Ohio Valley Region.
This year, we have our sights set on another nationals appearance and look to make a deep push into the bracket. With a lot of seniors graduating last year, some people have been looking past us. We are confident that our players are ready to step up into new roles and there is no better time to demonstrate this than February in Florida. Florida Warmup provides a crucial early season tournament to get our players experience against the top teams in the college division. Pitt Ultimate has built the program on strong regular seasons with great nationals performances. We are so excited to get the season started and play with our brothers in Florida.
As Pitt B Ultimate, we have our own goals focusing on constant improvement. Our goal is to attend and win the 'Florida Warmup Emerging Powerhouses Division', a prestigious late winter tournament in Tampa to kick off a successful spring season. Last year we left Florida champions and intend to do so again this year. We provide all Pitt players the chance to develop their love for the game while still playing at a high level. We value our opportunities to travel and are thankful for your help to help us get to Florida.
We will work hard through this winter, in the gym, on the track, and in the film room, to prepare for Florida Warmup. We intend to put in the work, and reap the rewards, to start off the 2017 ultimate season on the strongest note possible.

The backhand is a simple throw beginners learn to help ease them into the game. It's simple, but important. Your 'backhand' is just as important, and will help us fill a van with gas for the tournament.
The flick throw is the second essential throw to any player's frisbee arsenal. Your 'flick' throw will help us cover the cost of one room for a night.
The scoober is a more challenging, over-the-head throw, used to help players break their way out of difficult situations and gain momentum on the field. Your 'scoober' throw will help a player to pay their registration fee for the tournament.
The hammer is another over-the-head throw that can travel downfield quickly. Your 'hammer' throw will help cover the bid fee of the tournament for the whole team.
A Layout-D is when a player 'gets horizontal' and leaves the ground in a jumping like motion to make an incredible defensive play. Your 'Layout-D' will help the team pay for hotels for the vast majority of our tournament.
A greatest is potentially the ultimate play a player can make to bring glory to their team - it is when a player catches a disc that is trailing out of bounds mid-air and throws it back in for an assisted score - before touching the ground! Your 'Greatest,' besides looking sick, will hype the team up, cover the tournament fee, transportation, and basic lodging for the whole team for the duration of the tournament.
