The Super Clinic is Extra Super this Year
Learn some new skills. Play some fun ultimate. Make a new friend or two. Do some good for the sport of ultimate. Get fed.
Sound like fun?
We've got a great afternoon planned for you on June 9, 2018 at Jericho. The event includes:
- a series of clinics
- a pick-up game for charity that's being played in 30+ other communities in Canada.
- a BBQ by donation (to raise money for the Art Hawkins Great Canadian Ultimate Game)
- casual disc games in the park
Clinics (12-3 pm)
Led by experienced players from Vancouver’s competitive teams, this is a great opportunity for beginner and intermediate players to absorb new knowledge while putting it into practice. You'll spend about 45 minutes each at a handful of stations to work on cutting, defending, handling and game tactics. All for free!
Art Hawkins Great Canadian Ultimate Game (3-4 pm)
This is an annual event that takes place in more than 30 ultimate communities across Canada and was started by the late VUL Executive Director, Art Hawkins.
We'll play a pick-up game of ultimate between the red team and white team. In past years one community would play in an allotted time-slot and then pass the score on to the next community, but this year each community will choose what time they play at and the scores across all communities will be added up to determine which team wins.
As part of the game, we'll be collecting donations and hosting contests to raise money for the Art Hawkins Development Fund. The Art Hawkins Development Fund supports the accessibility and development of Ultimate and Spirit of the Game in Canada with children, youth and those with a disability, especially in economically disadvantaged communities. Here's a video that shows an example of the type of projects your donations will support:
BBQ and Casual Disc Games (4-6 pm)
After the clinics most players stick around for our bbq and fun disc games! This year we'll be running the BBQ by donation to raise funds for the Art Hawkins Great Canadian Ultimate Game.
As for the games, we'll set up frickets, and maybe guts (if anyone is actually interested in getting frisbees whipped at them...). This year, we'll also have life-size jenga... Don’t know what (or how much fun) those games are? You’ll have to stick around to find out!
