Club sports at NT range from such
traditional sports as baseball to new, in-
novative sports like Ultimate Frisbee.
Ultimate Frisbee coach Mac Newton
said he believes the main goal of
club sports is not whether you win or
lose but that you participate.
“A lot of people believe they are not
proficient enough in a particular sport,
so they do not join the club,” Newton
said. "They don’t understand that the
main purpose of the club is to provide
“Some people will watch the par-
ticular club they arc interested in at
practice and fee! that they must already
have the skill to compete. Actually, a lot
of time is spent by the clubs to teach
people the skills they need,” Newton
"Many clubs, including ours, do
compete on a competitive level, but that
is more of an extracurricular activity,”
Newton said. “Much of the time is spent
teaching skills, and once they are
learned, we put them to practice.”
Club sports should be included as part
of the total college experience, Newton
said, as a person can gain valuable ex-
perience through meeting other people
“The clubs are a learning experience,
with students helping students, and in-
volvement by everyone is encouraged
within the club,” he said.
Newton, Denton senior, said that the
Ultimate Frisbee Club has just finished
its first year of operation and competed
in five tournaments in the fall.
No schedule has been set for spring
competition, he said, but the club
plans to attend six tournaments this
semester, including events in Kansas,
Oklahoma and Missouri.
“We receive no funding at all from the
athletic department and we are not a
varsity sport, but we do compete
seriously in tournaments,” Newton said.
“We finished third in the state tourna-
ment last year, out of 11 teams."
Teams consist of seven players on
both teams, and the game is played on a
field the size of a football field. The
players advance the Frisbee by pass-
ing it to teammates. A team is awarded
one point each time it moves the Frisbee
across the opponent’s goal line.
"The game was invented about 10
years ago in a New Jersey high school,”
Newton said. “It is a non-physical sport
with no referees; it is built around the
“Respect for the other person is
highly stressed. There is no feeling of
having to hurt the other person in order
to win the game,” he said.
Newton said that the sport grew out
of defiance to the violent atmosphere of
the 1960s, when people wanted a
peaceful sport to play.
“The feeling that ‘I must injure you to
win the game’ is not a part of the sport,
and I think that brings back apprecia-
tion for sports and a renewed interest in
competition,” he said.
