The City of Charleston Department of Recreation holds a league with at least eight scheduled games and a season-ending tournament with all levels available for play. The cost is $35 and registration starts August 1 and the league starts in September, but if you want more information contact Nick Kierpiec at (843) 402-7329.
In the meantime, you can join a pick-up game every Tuesday at James Island County Park at 6 p.m., Sunday mornings at 11 a.m. behind the Mt. Pleasant Police Department, about 10 miles from Abberly at West Ashley east on US-17 through downtown Charleston or connect with the Charleston Ultimate Frisbee community on Facebook.
