Ultimate Frisbee Gym Demos are back

I'll admit, sometimes I get weak and throw "Frisbee" into a title for search engine reasons. Bridging that gap between bringing in those who don't yet know the sport, and promoting the actual name can be a conflict of interest.

Solution? Flatball.... But that's for another day. For now,

PHUL is once again offering to run gym demo programs at high schools and middle schools in the Western Pennsylvania region. For more information please contact: Pat Hammonds at pathammonds@phul-ultimate.org. A description of the program can be found below:

The Pittsburgh Ultimate League Gym Demonstration program, started in 2004, was created to deliver high quality instruction in the rules and skills of the sport of Ultimate to high school Physical Education programs. A team of six college and club level players will travel to middle and high schools in the area and teach the classes for the entire day. Two of the instructors begin by explaining the rules of the game, teaching the basic skills required, and then compete in a 3 vs. 3 demonstration game with the other instructors. After this, the students compete in various activities, depending on their age and skill level. These can include the students competing in their own 3 vs. 3 games, a full game with the students competing against the instructors, or skills practice and drills.
