In a game where players self-officiate, Kaimosi Friends University College’s Tropical Rangers are proving to be the ultimate team.

Having debuted just two years ago, the team of 32 male and female students is posting impressive results and advancing further into the region, having conquered local tourneys

The Tropical Rangers are the Kenya University Sport Association (KUSA) Western frisbee champions. The games were held at Masinde Muliro University Science of Technology grounds on November 13th and 14th.

They were previously second best at the same tourney held at Rongo University in February.

As a club, the team has bagged spirit trophies in tournaments organized in Nakuru and Eldoret.

Ultimate frisbee relies on the spirit sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the player. Whereas competitive play is encouraged, it should never be at the expense of mutual respect among competitors, adherence to the agreed upon rules, or the basic joy of play. This makes the game one of the best routes for achieving national cohesion in universities, nurturing team work

Moreover, it is a good full body workout and nurtures critical thinking.

The KAFUCO team is led by student author Patrick Juma.
