Moose Ultimate Southwest, or MÜS for short, is Southwest high School's Ultimate Frisbee team.

We play in both the fall and the spring, and we encourage everyone with an interest in Ultimate and Frisbees to come out and play! Learn to throw and catch a disc! Sure we field teams in competitve leagues, but we also provide numerous opportunities for everyone to learn and play. Even part-time participation is enthusiastically embraced. 

Come join in the fun!

Ultimate Seasons

  • Fall League - In the Fall the MUS play as a co-ed team in the Twin Cities Ultimate League (TCUL), ultimate is unique in that at all levels of play (even in international competition) there are leagues that have males and females playing side by side.  Note that most of the teams in the league are comprised of adult players, although there are a number of high school teams in the mix.
     
  • Spring - Spring is the main season for Ultimate.  High school teams from all over compete on a regular schedule, culminating in a State tournament at the end of the season. In the spring the MUS field an open team and a girls team and compete with over 50 other highschool open teams and 20 girls teams. Last year our Girls team took 1st in state!

Ultimate at Southwest High School

We are Moose Ultimate Southwest (MÜS), a letter status club at  Southwest. We practice and compete in the sport of Ultimate. We have several volunteer coaches with extensive elite experience, an effective parent boosters club, and a cadre of highly motivated captains.

Ultimate at Southwest has a strong tradition. We are one of the founding teams of the State League and are always competitive in league play. We focus on the fundamentals and strategies that make our players successful in the game and in life

Our club is designed to take advantage of the rapidly growing opportunities for High School play in the Twin Cities, the state, and across the county. We compete in Twin Cities Ultimate League, the Minnesota State High School Ultimate League , and in national and international qualifier events. We make day trip and over-night trips to regional high school tournaments. 

We want to encourage all students from any school to play at some level. Even if you can only come part-time, you are welcome to join in.

About Ultimate

Combining the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football, and the vertical nature of basketball, a game of Ultimate is played by two seven-player squads with a high-tech plastic disc on a field similar to football. The object of the game is to score by catching a pass in the opponent’s end zone. A player must stop running while in possession of the disc, but may pivot and pass to any of the other receivers on the field.  Ultimate is a transition game in which players move quickly from offense to defense on turnovers that occur with a dropped pass, an interception, a pass out of bounds, or when a player is caught holding the disc for more than ten seconds. Ultimate is governed by Spirit of the Game, a tradition of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the players rather than referees. All players are responsible for knowing the rules and calling the game.

Ultimate is played in more than 42 countries by hundreds of thousands of men and women, girls and boys. In the USA, Ultimate is governed by the Ultimate Players Association. They also sanction the Minnesota State  High School Ultimate League.

Who runs MÜS?

MÜS is a volunteer effort, largely run by the team captains with administrative help from parent boosters and great volunteer coaches.  Ben Zhao, Southwest art teacher, is the Faculty Sponsor and a founder of MÜS.
