Elevate Ultimate Summer Camps focus on teamwork, skill development, and sportsmanship. Now if you are like me you’ve heard the terms “ultimate” and “frisbee golf” (or “disc golf”) but have literally no clue what the actual sport entails. While I know my dog and I aren’t playing ultimate when I throw the frisbee at the dog park that was about the sum total of understanding. But I’m now in the know and eager to share the inside scoop with you. Here’s what I’ve learned about these really cool sports!

Ultimate Frisbee is a team sport that mixes together aspects of football, basketball, and rugby. But rather than playing with a ball, the participants use a flying disc (aka Frisbee). Ultimate is now played around the world and has a good chance of being an Olympic sport in 2028!

Disc Golf is played in a very similar manner to regular golf however, the clubs and ball aren’t part of this sport. Players use a flying disc with the goal of completing each hole with the fewest number of throws possible. If you’ve been to a park and seen a metal pole with a funnel-shaped chain basket attached around waist height, you’ve seen a disc golf course!

Elevate Ultimate Summer CampsThe Elevate Ultimate Summer Camps introduce both Ultimate Frisbee and Disc Golf to the participants. The camps are open for players new to the sport as well as more experienced players. Coaches will split up the group by skill level when necessary (e.g. certain scrimmages or throwing drills). The majority of the camps run all day (9am – 3pm) but a few morning-only camps (9am – 12pm) are being offered in Burnaby. Save $15 of any camp when you use the discount code: FamilyFun15
