The Tufts E-Men are a highly competitive college ultimate frisbee club founded in 1972. In addition to reaching the collegiate regional semi-finals and finals time and time again over that period, Tufts qualified for and played in the first ever Ultimate Frisbee College Nationals, in 1984. This inaugural tournament was held, organized, and run by Tufts.
Building on this great tradition, since 2009, the E-Men have appeared in 4 of the last 7 college Nationals. For the past 9 years, the Tufts E-Men have reached at least the game-to-go to Nationals; the longest such streak in the region. In 2012 the team matched our 2002 peak with a trip to the quarterfinals and a 5th place finish among all American and Canadian Universities (even the big ones!).
As a perennial power in the New England region, we have enjoyed success at both the regional and national level. We compete in the open division of USA Ultimate’s college sector. Despite our school’s size we compete alongside traditionally Division 1 schools and we are proud to represent Tufts University on this elevated stage.
The students that make up our program come from diverse backgrounds and represent many different aspects of the Tufts community. We dedicate ourselves to both the competitive spirit and the dignified respect of the sport of ultimate frisbee. Off the field we hope to model the hard work, diplomacy and passion that Tufts Ultimate breeds.
Pax et Frisbus.
