The Woodstock Games Schedule and Location
The Woodstock game is played on Sunday afternoons at 3:00pm, with the Tuesdays and Thursdays are on hold until spring. Sometimes there are games on other, special days. Sometimes people show up a little late, so don’t panic!
If you’re new to Ultimate and want some learning and practice, please come more on the early side. Some of us arrive promptly to the games, and can help newcomers with their disc technique and knowledge of Ultimate.
The games are usually at the Comeau Property fields. These are beautiful and level fields, very well taken care of by the town of Woodstock and the soccer folks.
Click here for a Google map of the Woodstock Comeau Property. From the center of Woodstock, the Village Green, go West towards Bearsville on Tinker St (Rt 212) until you see the old firehouse on the right. Opposite the firehouse on the left is Comeau Drive. Go up this road, where you’ll immediately pass the first municipal parking lot on the right, and up to the second parking lot at the top. It’s on the right and is covered with gravel. Park in this lot, and go westward through the gate, on the dirt road, and on to the two large fields.
Alternate location at the Andy Lee Rec Field
On extremely rare occasions the game moves because the Comeau Property fields are wet, or we are bumped because of other Comeau activities.
Click here for a Google map of the Woodstock Rec Field. From the center of Woodstock, take Rock City Road (the road that intersects Rt 212 at the Village Green). Pass cemetery on right and park in the parking lot immediately after the cemetery. We play in the Rec Field (Andy Lee Field), behind the Community Center and pool.
Other Area GamesThere are also games that form at other area locations. You might want to check out pickup games around the world via the amazing map-based site at PickupUltimate.com.
About the Game, and How to Play
Ultimate is a non-contact team sport, originated in 1968, combining some elements of basketball, soccer, and football. The game is fast paced, and quite a cardiovascular and full body workout, but it is also very easy to learn. There are two teams with 3 to 7 players each. Play starts as one team throws the disc to the other. The other team catches the disc, and begins to move across the field toward their goal, tossing the disc between their team members. A player cannot run with the disc, and attempts to throw it to a teammate while the other team tries to block the throw. If the disc is caught by the other team, or falls to the ground, the other team gains possession and tries to work back towards their goal line. A point is scored when the disc is thrown over a team’s goal line and caught by a team member. The disc used is a Discraft, Pulsar, Frisbee, or similar disc, with the Discraft being the preferred choice over the traditional Wham-O brand Frisbee.
