In ultimate, if a player performs a Greatest, he or she jumps into the air from in-bounds and catches and throws the disc back into the field of play in one motion before landing out of bounds. If that disc is caught by the player’s teammate, they keep possession of it. It’s awesome to see and even cooler when it leads to a score. Throw in a flying layout and you have this gem of a highlight:
There is a great ultimate summer camp being run this summer through the Falmouth Rec. Department. Click over to read more about it and to sign up.
The two coaches running the camp, Chloe Rowse and Noah Backer, are both locals (Chloe is an alumni of the Falmouth Ultimate program and Noah played in Cape Elizabeth) and have achieved Big Things at the collegiate and nationals level of play. There is a limited number of spots available, so don’t lag in signing up.
Chloe’s dad Rob is one of the head coaches with the high school program and created this highlights video of Chloe and her teammates at Colorado College. Chloe is the tall blonde rocking the long ponytail.
What this video lacks in image-resolution, it makes up for in sheer-awesomeness!
Thanks to coach Rob Rowse of Falmouth Ultimate for sharing this one with us!
I will be helping middle school gym teacher Maureen Sylvia teach a unit on ultimate frisbee to the 6th graders this week and the one after vacation. These are all the discs I’m bringing. And yes, they all have FMSultimate.com written on the bottom. 😀
Another exciting game to watch for homework this week.
All players should visit this page to register their jersey size, name, and number choices.
Also, don’t forget your weekly homework: go for a 20-minute jog and watch 20 minutes of a professional level ultimate frisbee game. Any of the games posted here on the site are fine.
Another great game to watch.
