Rat City is a Baltimore-based mixed ultimate frisbee team
Rat City has been working hard behind the scenes and on the field to prep for this season! Edward and Echo are still holding down the fort as captain with our leadership crew Kat, Tanner and Jesse. Official practices start this week — June 3rd and will occur every Thursday. We intend to participate in the series and have a structured season this year - tournament schedule pending available local tournaments, and some scrimmages of our own making!
We are working to finalize our roster, if you want to learn more feel free to reach out at Ratcityultimate@gmail.com!
Rat City values athletes of all genders and sexual orientation and invites all people to try out for a spot on the team. We want players who are willing to work hard to build trust together to become a team that is stronger than its individual components. Look for our interest form coming soon.
Why "Rat City"?
"Why Rat City?", you may ask. "Rats are gross!" you may say. While they may be gross, Baltimore (which is known to have many rats) is not. Rat City is a team that embraces everything Baltimore and the greater Baltimore region. Whether that is Ravens and O's, Utz and Bohs, crafty Art Scape nights, free concerts and neighborhood block parties, embracing summer swamp season, or just keeping life weird... we want people to know that we take pride in our city and everyone’s efforts to improve it.
We're taking back rats.
As a team, Rat City is committed to playing competitive ultimate while also engaging in conversation and action around race and gender equity in ultimate frisbee. We want all players to feel valued and able to succeed on the field and in general. Ask us about how we’re implementing an equity lens on and off the field.
The 2021 Captains
Hailing from Wallingford, CT, Edward is entering his second season on Rat City. Before joining the mixed division, Edward played for several open teams, including Chicago Beachfront Property and Philadelphia Citywide Special. This is his first time captaining a team since his days in college, where he helped lead Northwestern University NUT in 2015 and 2016. In his free time, Edward enjoys defeating all challengers in Guitar Hero and he is very excited for the upcoming 38th(!) season of Survivor
A Maine native, Echo has lived and been involved in the Baltimore Frisbee scene since graduating St Mary’s College of Maryland (“SMUT”) in 2012. She played women’s club with Backhanded Ultimate for four years, captaining in 2016, as well as helped lead GUM clinics, layout clinics and coached Hammertime B women. This is Echo’s 3rd year playing with Rat City, and first year captaining. She is excited to see what the 2021 season has in store!
