Teen Ultimate Frisbee

CO-ED GRADES 7-12

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. This program will development skills & strategies, and help players understand and embrace the “Spirit of the Game”.  A unique and defining element of Ultimate Frisbee, Spirit of the Game places the responsibility of fair play solely on the athletes themselves by requiring each player to know the rules and make their own calls, without the help of a neutral official. These underlying principles reinforce mutual respect and trust between opponents; communication and conflict resolution skills; and self-confidence – both on and off the field of play.

Bring: Sneakers/cleats, weather-appropriate clothes (layers), water bottle. Check in/out wearing a cloth face covering.

Instructor: Roger Bakos – Roger is a lifelong ultimate competitor that has experiencing coaching at the middle school level in King County.
