GOSHEN -- Jason Ramsey opens his arms as the disc sails toward him. He catches it, looks up, pivots to find an open team member, and tosses the disc. The process continues all the way down the 70-yard field, until a teammate catches the disc in the 25-yard end zone.
The game is ultimate Frisbee, and people have been playing pickup games at Goshen College for decades.
But this year, 105 people from teenagers to their 60s signed up for the Goshen Ultimate Summer League.
Craig Glick Miller, who organized the ultimate Frisbee league, had been traveling to South Bend to play with about a dozen other people from Elkhart County.
"We finally decided it was time to form one in Goshen," he said.
Every Tuesday they gather at Ox Bow County Park, where they break into three fields and two teams go head to head.
Six teams make up the league, with 16 people -- at least four of them women -- on each team.
Glick Miller had hoped to organize four teams and ended up with six.
"There's a lot more interest in Goshen than I thought there was," he said.
Of the 105 people who signed up at the beginning of the season, 60 people had no experience playing organized ultimate Frisbee, Glick Miller said.
"The first couple weeks we took a half hour before we started playing to explain the rules for everyone who hadn't played organized ultimate before," Glick Miller said. "Our main goal with this was to have fun and teach the game."
Explaining those rules included explaining the positions of handlers -- usually good throwers -- and cutters -- usually made up of people who are good runners.
The sport is governed by the Ultimate Players Association.
Goals of the first season include helping everyone improve as players and ensuring everyone has fun, Glick Miller said.
Glick Miller got his start playing ultimate at those pickup games at Goshen College years ago. Krista Daniels of Goshen also got her start there and has been playing for about 10 years. She said she likes that the summer league is a teaching league.
"It keeps you in shape and it's self-refereed," she said. "Everyone knows we're out here to have fun."
