What people say
Growing the game of ultimate disc, especially with youth, is a core priority of the AUDL. We are privileged to support Y-Ultimate’s mission to impart life skills education in children, especially those from lesser privileged socio-economic backgrounds.
American Ultimate Disc League
In our experience with Ultimate Frisbee, we have seen it to be a great leveller where girls and boys have played together on the same platform at equal footing. The focus on building collaboration, communication and respect has show in the way we have seen our students transform.
The Apprentice Project
Engaging with Ultimate can go a long way to build mindsets for Peace and Equity in children growing up in conflict-affected areas, where we operate. Ultimate is revolutionising the role of sport in a child’s education.
With Frisbee coming in, I saw children doing better with team activities, taking initiative to solve problems on their own before bringing them to the teachers
All the coaches would always demonstrate the values they talked about – gender equality, perseverance, knowledge of the game, most importantly Spirit of the game. The kids at Childscapes, learnt not just by listening to them but mostly by observing them.
Art of Play Foundation
It is a rare and very good sport that covers life lessons with genuine intentions.
