Flickstart for Beginners - Ultimate Frisbee Clinic

If you are looking for a fun way to get/stay in shape, Ultimate is also a great work-out that requires very little in the way of equipment to play the game. This is a great introduction to Ultimate Frisbee for anyone wanting to learn the game or join one of KUPS league teams.

This evening clinic will cover the basic of Ultimate including: throwing, player roles, general rules, strategies, and “spirit” of the game.

Ultimate was recently cited as the fastest growing team sport in Canada, in part because it is one of the few field sports that can be played at any level by co-ed teams, making it a great social game.

Recommended footwear are Soccer or football cleats, but running shoes also work.

Location: Parkinson Fields (Next to the Rugby Clubhouse)

Fee: $25 (includes a regulation 175g Ultimate Disc)
