ULTIMATE FRISBEE CAMP! July 31- August 4 9:00-11:00 AM

As a diploma requirement, IB students at Lakewood High are required to carry out a community-building project involving Creativity Activity Service. To us, Ultimate Frisbee is that community, and now we want to share it with future high school students.

As members of the Lakewood Ultimate Frisbee team, our goal is to teach young players the skills they need, and to instill in them a love of Ultimate which will keep the sport growing and thriving long into the future.
