Rat City is a Baltimore-based mixed ultimate frisbee team
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 gracing our fair city) is not. Rat City is a team that embraces everything Baltimore and the greater Baltimore region, and actively engages as a team with what that means. Whether that is Ravens and O's, Utz and Bohs, a problematic history of systemic racism, active grassroots resistance, or hons and the harbor... we want people to know that we take pride in our city and the efforts to improve it. We're taking back rats.
The 2020 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.
