Beautiful video! This is from a tournament in Hawaii.
I love this new video from Maine’s own Chuck Cleary because it shows that even the best ultimate players in the world drop the disc and throw it into the ground from time-to-time. The most important thing about messing up is how you handle yourself afterwards— get up, forget about the mistake, and keep on jammin’!
Maine’s very own Chuck Cleary put together this fantastic highlight reel of women playing in the mixed division during the 2016 USAU club championships.

We watched this video today in practice and I thought some of the players might want to share. This is Beau Kittredge, one of the best players in the history of ultimate frisbee, jumping over an opponent. Please note: this is not a regular occurrence in ultimate and speaks more to Beau’s killer athleticism more than anything else.
I also showed this picture of a summer league team that I captained when I lived in Boulder, Colorado back in 2002. If you look, you’ll noticed Beau standing on the left side of the image (second from the left). I’m standing in the middle holding up the disc and the number 1 symbol. It was Beau’s first summer in Boulder, no one knew who he was, and I ended up drafted him because he was tall (since I was also new and didn’t know anyone in the draft, I just picked the tallest available choice every round). Of course we won the tournament that year.
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:
