Ultimate is a fun, fast-paced game that many have played informally or in gym classes. This camp is an opportunity to learn more about the skills and strategy of playing Ultimate competitively from BBA’s Ultimate coach, Tom von Allmen. We’ll practice a variety of throws, talk about effective strategies on offense and defense, and learn how competition, fairness, and fun work together in this sport. Great for first-time players, returners to the sport, or athletes of other sports looking for a way to increase skills like quickness, field awareness, spacing, and stamina.
