Ultimate Frisbee - Les Lions v. Les Tigres

I am such a proud frisbee coach! After much delay and anticipation, Les Lions faced off agains Les Tigres tonight at the little football pitch down the road. This time, the rules and concept of the game stuck. You don't run when you have the frisbee. When your teammate has the frisbee, you run to get open and catch it. When your opponent has the frisbee, you wave your arms wildly in front of them, but you DON'T touch them. This means, logically, that you don't tackle them, bear hug them, steal the frisbee and run, etc! After a couple of failed scores in which the frisbee was tossed through the football goals, the concept of catching the 'bee in the end zone stuck.

Our Keuleng Frisbee crew - showing the tattered colored bands (uniforms).

With strips of two shirts - one blue, one peach - tied around our heads or arms as team uniforms, we played - stopping frequently to explain a rule or return the frisbee to the correct team. It started off pretty scrappy, but soon became apparent that the kids who lived in close vicinity to the frisbee had a serious edge on those who hadn't thrown around as much. Three from the Chefferie - Steve, Lily, and Arol - dominated the game. Not only did the get the concept of getting open, but they all have sweet throws and AMAZING hands. Arol, the smallest of the three, seems to be able to snatch anything out of the air. As I stood back and filmed, I couldn't believe how well the three of them could string together passes and move the disc down the field. Again, what a proud coach!
