Philadelphia Phoenix Practice

There are now two professional Ultimate leagues: MLU (Major League Ultimate) and the AUDL (American Ultimate Disc League). The AUDL had some well-documented issues last year which led the Philadelphia Spinners to leave the league and start the MLU.

So Philly now has two professional teams: the Spinners in the MLU and now the Phoenix in the AUDL. For Ultimate fans, especially those of us out here in the western Philly burbs, this is good news for watching high-quality games since the Phoenix play at Cheney University in West Chester.

I had a great talk about Ultimate and photography with both their coach and also with the owner of the Phoenix, so hopefully we’ll be able to cover their games this year. It’s an exciting time to be an Ultimate fan!

I ran out of light for the best plays, but was able to grab some cool shots during the drills.
