This year’s ultimate disc season is about to kick off.

Members of the Sault Ultimate Players’ Association gathered Sunday for a pickup game.

Wednesday is a pre-season meet and greet at Arcadia Coffeehouse starting at 7 p. m.

New this year is a Monday night competitive league. The coed recreational league will continue to meet on Wednesdays.

Gerry Kirk, a member of the club’s executive, said the club largely attracts young people, “particularly people who aren’t connected in the Sault.”

“It’s athletic and competitive, but in ultimate Frisbee there’s something called Spirit of the Game,” a tradition of sportsmanship, in which players referee themselves, said Kirk.
