COED, GRADES 6-8
(Kids in grades 4-5 with prior Ultimate Frisbee experience may join)
Learn and play Ultimate Frisbee! Ultimate combines the continuous movement and endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football, and the goal of completing a pass to a player in the end zone. Teamwork, spirit and safety are ingrained in the sport and are emphasized here. Participants learn the basics of throwing, catching, and positioning from volunteer coaches. Kids will love trying a new sport in a supportive environment. Ultimate Frisbee is a player defined and controlled non-contact team sport played with a flying disc on a playing surface with end zones in which all actions are governed by the ‘Spirit of the Game’. Sports & Fitness Industry Association continues to report ultimate as one of the fastest growing team sports in the country. Ultimate is genuinely fun and exciting.
