Congratulations for digging up our wonderful web page! We're still trying hard to be the the most relaxed Ultimate team in Berlin. Everybody unaware of Ultimate, so far, is encouraged to read an online introduction. The rest of this page contains little information on the game itself, but some facts on Discipuli you might find interesting.

When was Discipuli founded?

The team emanated from a university sports course held by Gerd Röcke in the summer of 1993. Actually we used to play right in front of the Reichstag, then. Unfortunately, that green had to give way to an enormous construction site for a combined car/railway tunnel. Gerd, our first (and only?) coach, decided to take his flock of greenhorns to that year's German University Championships after only six weeks of practice.

Where did we get that silly name from?

On their first tournament, the '93 Students Championships in Kassel, the intimidated greenhorns clung to the skirt of their mentor. Soon, they were mocked at as "Gerds Jünger" (Gerd's disciples), and were even considering that as a team name. Gerd, as it seems, was not so pleased with this idea - after all he had a reputation to lose. What to do? It's not quite clear, who came up with some humble remnants of Latin vocabulary, but they definitely sufficed to translate "Jünger" to "Discipuli" - et voilà!
