We Are BC
Founded in 1977, the Boston College Men’s Ultimate team has been known as one of the more fun and competitive teams in the New England region, especially in the Boston area. The team’s philosophy of dedication, improvement, and development motivates us in teaching athletes the enjoyment of the sport and a positive attitude towards teamwork and success while having fun along the way.
Following multiple UPA College Nationals appearances in the early 90′s, the team experienced a downturn in the later part of the decade. The team resurfaced in 2004 when Micah Flynn (Twisted Metal, Bodhi, Slow White) took on the role of coach for a team of about a dozen players. Over the next few years, the team grew in size and prominence and returned as one of the top ultimate programs in the area. In 2009 the team earned the right to compete on Sunday and finished in a tie for 5th in the New England Region, a feat that hadn’t been realized for nearly two decades. In 2010, the team finished tied for 11th in the region. Following the 2010 season, the leadership elected to assume the Boston College Eagles name as part of an effort to re-focus the team. In 2011, 2012, and 2013 the Eagles finished 5th, 7th, and 5th in the region respectively, firmly establishing themselves as an annual competitor on Sunday in the region. Furthermore, the Boston College B-team has recently emerged as a highly competitive developmental team under the tutelage of coach John Sullivan (Wildcard), winning developmental regionals in 2012 and placing 3rd in 2013.
Today the Eagles are as committed as ever to maintaining their reputation as a strong ultimate program. With both an A and a B team, Ultimate at Chestnut Hill offers a unique experience where everyone can have a good time, learn the game, and improve as an athlete and as a teammate. Always looking for new talent, the team accepts anyone, regardless of experience or commitment. The team is also welcome to all forms of competition as well as opportunities to spread the values of the sport to others in the Boston area.
Boston College Ultimate practices 3 times a week and competes in several tournaments in both the fall and spring seasons. The Eagles have traveled to Kansas, Florida, and even Nevada for major tournaments against national competition.
