The history of ultimate at Princeton began in 1972, when the first intercollegiate game was played between Princeton and Rutgers. Since then, the face of Princeton Ultimate has changed quite a bit. No longer the men of "Garden State Brickface," today, four teams represent Princeton Ultimate: competitive men's and women's teams both named Clockwork Orange, a developmental men's team named Clockblock, and a developmental women's team named Stopwatch.

In 2014, Princeton University's matriculation exceeded the D-III maximum enrollment of 7,500 undergraduate and graduate students and Clockwork Ultimate officially became a D-1 team. Unofficially known as "Boys' Clock", the team competed in the Metro NY section of the Metro East division from in 2014 and 2015. Clockwork looks to qualify for their fifth straight regionals appearance in the 2016 season. Ranked at 201 in the most recent USA Ultimate rankings, Boys' Clock hopes to exceed expectations in the historically volatile Metro East division.

Who we are

Princeton Clockwork rosters a team of 24 for the 2015-2016 season, with two head coaches and three captains. The developmental B-team (Unofficially named Clockblock) boasts a roster of 30+ led by three captains. Each year, Clockwork holds tryouts in the fall to identify A-team players for the following season. All Princeton University undergraduates and graduates are welcome to try out for A-team and/or play for the developmental B-team.

Both the A-team and the developmental Clockblock participate in tournaments throughout the Fall and Spring seasons. Additionally, Clockwork has historically traveled to Myrtle Beach over spring break to participate in the High Tide and Southerns Tournaments along with the girls team.

Going forward

Clockwork looks to build off their unprecedentedly talented 2019 freshman class to cement its status as a premier Ultimate team in the Metro East region. To do so, Clockwork is looking to recruit and develop Ultimate players of all skill levels.

The beginning of classes marks the first week of returner practices, while we hold pick up for those interested in learning this fast-growing sport.

Off the field, Clockwork has earned a reputation of being the premiere social institution on campus. Two appointed Social Chairs oversee the budgeting and organization of a plethora of events strategically scheduled over the school year.
