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.
BBA Ultimate Coach Tom von Allmen has played ultimate for nearly 13 years. His competitive Ultimate career started in 2008 in the Fall of his Freshman year at Dickinson College. He’s played in countless summer leagues and spent 3 years and counting as a member of the Albany, NY club team, with whom he’s traveled all over the east coast to tournaments. As a coach, Tom has worked in Vermont for 6 years, and one summer overseas in Israel. His top priority as an Ultimate player and coach is understanding how the self-officiated aspect of the sport can create games that are highly respectful AND highly competitive.
