NYIT Ultimate Frisbee teams gears up for second season

Posted: Updated:
OLD WESTBURY -

The NYIT Bears have a new sports team on campus -- the Ultimate Frisbee team.

The Bears’ new season is set for this fall.

Ultimate Frisbee is a simple sport: teams move the Frisbee up the field, attempting to pass the disc into the endzone.

Team members say footwork, speed and awareness are most important to succeeding in the sport.

The Bears say they hope Ultimate Frisbee becomes more mainstream on Long Island in the near future.

Stony Brook, Hofstra and Adelphi are among other schools on Long Island with Ultimate Frisbee teams.
