We believe that every kid should know how to play ultimate and that each needs their own discs, so every year in Falmouth, we spend a couple of months teaching all the 5th graders in town how to play ultimate in their gym classes and give each of them their own disc. This year we decided to have some fun with our design and had team artist John Rioux form up the Falmouth Rogue squad!
We printed up 200 discs in all to give out, as there are around 180 or so 5th graders in town, leaving us enough leftovers to re-stock the gym teachers’ supplies. Here’s the boxes on stage during a class:
Lots of discs!
Big big thanks to everyone at Discraft for their fantastic service and fair pricing.
And HUGE thanks to the Welch and Wissink families for helping to pay for some of the discs!
Thanks to the generosity of the 2017 FMS Ultimate parents, we were able to order 200 new discs that were given away to this year’s 5th graders. We had enough to hand out a disc to every 5th grader in Falmouth with enough left over to leave some for the elementary and middle school gym teachers. Coach Shea also spent six weeks teaching ultimate to the 5th graders in their gym classes. Thanks as always to gym teacher Maureen Sylvia for letting us come in! There were a lot of great moments in their last few weeks of gym class ultimate as they got out and starting playing full games. We should have a good strong crew of 5th graders in the spring!
This is what 100 discs look like!
The kids will get their discs handed out at practice on Saturday.
