On Thursday, October 19 (11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.), students from 16 Lakehead Public Schools Elementary Schools will be playing in the Ultimate Frisbee tournament! The fast paced, exciting game that is played on a soccer sized field features athleticism and a high degree of sportsmanship. This is the second year for the tournament.
“While throwing and catching are integral components of Ultimate Frisbee, sportsmanship plays a key role as well,” says Michael Oades, Principal of CD Howe Public School and Ultimate Frisbee Tournament Organizer. “Ultimate Frisbee is one of the few sports that does not have a referee or an official on the field to monitor the game.”
Ultimate Frisbee players monitor their own play through what is referred to as “Spirit of the Game.” Thirty-one teams from 16 schools will showcase their Spirit of the Game at the second annual Lakehead Public Schools inaugural Ultimate Championship on Thursday, October 19 at the James Street Field.
