Ultimate for School

School Outreach was an initiative started by Chennai Ultimate Frisbee this year, to promote Ultimate at Schools in the city. It's run on a voluntary basis, Members of CUF with some spare time sign up to act as Coaches. The 4 month program was carried out in 4 different schools: Vanavani Matriculation Higher Secondary, Kendriya Vidyalaya (IIT), Olcott Memorial School and P.S Matriculation. This program roughly got over 200 kids introduced and addicted to the sport, overwhelming our with their enthusiasm. The first batch of coaching commenced with a First of a kind School tournament which had 6 teams competing. This wing of CUF is looking for volunteers and discs, if you can offer either please do reach out to us.

Quotes from the Coaches:
"School outreach is one of the most productive things I've done at CUF. The enthusiasm shown by the children, motivated us to continue coaching and not abandon, even when there was an acute shortage of coaches. It was definitely a mutual learning experience, it made us understand the game and communicate better." - Sangeetha Manoharan
