Social-Emotional Learning

Players will develop more than just their disc skills at Seattle Youth Ultimate Camps. The foundation of Ultimate Frisbee is called Spirit of the Game. Spirit of the Game emphasizes

 * Mutual respect between opponents * Playing fair * Trust in your teammates & opponents to make correct calls * Honesty * 
* Active listening * Collaborating with everyone on & off the field *

Campers develop relationships & communication skills in various games and team challenges, practice implementation of rules knowledge, develop discernment as they consider calls being made, advocate for themselves as they learn to make calls, and grow through self reflection after activities. 

Skill Development

Throughout the week at camp, players will grow their individual & team skills including:

--The rules of ultimate & how to play
--Spirit of the Game, the foundation of the sport

--Offensive movement
       Running & cutting footwork & fundamentals 
       Identifying open spaces & roles on the field
       Moving with others to generate flow

---Throwing stance, accuracy, consistency, and distance

--Defensive skills
       Downfield defensive positioning & responsiveness
       Guarding the thrower
       Safety & body control

Drills and practice vary at every level but these major themes will be touched on in each division to varying degrees of depth & difficulty.

Friends, Free time, & Fun

One of our camp’s core values is to build relationships among players. Throughout the week players are placed in various groups in order to find new connections and build long lasting friendships. Players will have the opportunity to do this during structured activities each day and through supervised free time each morning, during snack break, and lunch. In all divisions players will scrimmage, play large group disc related games, and learn spirit games every day at least once.

 DiscNW CIT Program

The SYUC Coach in Training program is designed to develop high school aged players into strong leaders and coaches in the ultimate community. CIT’s will be paired with various adult coach mentors throughout the week with the following goals:

  1. Develop effective communication styles,

  2. Learn drill development and sequencing,

  3. Become role models who develop positive relationships & rapport with campers.

CITs will participate in small group feedback sessions on their coaching skills, lead camp activities with support & independently (later in the week), and enjoy a rich,  immersive experience coaching of a youth ultimate.
