What is Space City Ultimate (SCU)?

Be a Part of Space City Ultimate’s Historic 5th Season

In 2010, Space City Ultimate began as The Great Experiment. The club brought the idea of a Major League Baseball farm system to ultimate. By incorporating players of all experience levels — from rookies to Nationals- and Worlds-caliber players — into one cohesive group, Space City provides a competitive environment for all ultimate players in the country’s fourth largest city.

The last three seasons has seen all three Space City teams (Ignite, Eclipse, and Fuel) compete at Texas Sectionals. Ignite and Eclipse then went on to finish 4th and 7th, respectively, at South Central Regionals (and Fuel just barely missing out on making it to Regionals). We are looking for new players to join our ranks and push all three of our teams to the next level.

These results prove that in 2014, Space City’s 5th season, the Great Experiment is no longer just an experiment; it is a success. We are a club comprised of almost 100 players on three teams all wearing the same uniform and pushing each other to play and compete at the highest levels of competitive Ultimate. And unlike the traditional structure of a competitive ultimate team where teams are determined after a tryout in the spring, players have players have most of the summer to prove themselves. Everyone has the chance to move up and down between levels depending on performance at tournaments and practice. Every year, there are players who start on Fuel or Eclipse and work their way up to through hard work and improvement.

Committees

While most teams rely on a handful of players to lead and organize everything, SCU takes a more participatory approach. In a way, SCU is like a corporation. We have a president who oversees the organization. Our members volunteer to lead Finance, Communications, Competition, and Logistics committees. These committees focus on training/fitness, filming, mentoring, logistics, membership and more.

With a diverse group of players, everyone has skills from their work or personal lives that can help the club. All club members work on committees and contribute service hours for the greater good of the club. That involvement reinforces the sense of community and camaraderie that are core to Space City Ultimate and reflect the club’s motto: Club before Team, Team before Self.

Mission

Besides hosting a competitive team at the highest level, SCU’s mission is to attract talented players to Houston, make our players better and keep them here so this city becomes a mainstay in sustainable competitive Ultimate. That long-term goal guides club decision-making. Everything feeds to the top team, just like Major League Baseball has a farm system with the goal of making the big league club a world champion.

All of this started with one person’s idea, shared for the first time in some college kids’ jam-packed living room and now playing out on a field near you. If you’re ready to be part of something big and you’re ready to put in the work to become great and help your teammates become great, come join Houston’s Great Experiment Success.
