Mission Statement

The Red Scare is Hampshire's Ultimate Frisbee team. The team practices and competes as a Mixed team, though some tournaments that the Red Scare travels to call for single sex teams in an Open or Women's division. The Red Square owes its namesake not to the connection that communism has with the color red, indeed the name came about because the Russian word красная (krasnaya) can mean either "red" or "beautiful". Naturally, the team's official colors are red and black. The Red Scare is a student group dedicated to having fun, and making sure that everybody who wants to play and participate is able to. According to their website, Red Scare is only ten years old, though Hampshire's participation in the sport of ultimate dates back to the 1700s.


Hampshire College's Ultimate frisbee tradition goes far past its current incarnation as The Red Scare. After the collegiate expansion of Ultimate Frisbee during the first half of the 1970s, Hampshire hosted the first ever 16 team "National Ultimate Frisbee Championships" tournament in 1976. Hampshire College came in second in that tournament, losing in the final game to a veteran Rutgers University team[Leonardo, Tony; Zagoria, Adam (2005). ULTIMATE: The First Four Decades. Ultimate History, Inc.]. Rutgers University is the largest institution for higher education in New Jersey (located in the armpit of the Northeast Corridor of the United States [of America]). It is the eighth-oldest college in the United States and one of the nine Colonial colleges founded before the American Revolution. Since then, Hampshire has been active in the Ultimate community, even purportedly helping Amherst Regional High School create its now highly successful high school Ultimate team.


The Red Scare is led by between two to four captains, who are voted to their positions of leadership by the rest of the team. Much like Supreme Court Justices, the captains of Red Scare must be nominated by the POTUS, approved by both The House and The Senate, and must wear black robes until they die.
