Frisbee is a limited-contact field sport involving a maximum of seven players aside, and is played with a disc (also known as a Frisbee).

The origins of the game point to America in the late 1960s. Since then, it has become a major sport across the world and is now recognized as an International Olympic Sport.

The sport was introduced in Kisumu by expatriates working in town.

Initially very few locals were playing. However this has gradually changed and now the team is purely played by locals.

In Africa the game is currently played at club level in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, South Sudan, Rwanda, Egypt, Morocco and South Africa.

The team currently needs funds to the tune of US$ 30,000 that will enable them take 15 local players to Cincinnati this July. This will cover the tournament fees, visa applications, flight air ticket, accommodation, local transport in Ohio and meals for the 10 day tournament.
