Looking for a new sport to try with your child? Something different, something safe, and something very affordable?
Maybe your kid doesn’t want to do the mainstream sports and is looking for another way to get exercise and have fun in a team sport. Perhaps your young athlete is looking for an alternative to traditional organized sports.
And now, there is a tool called Ulticards, to teach ultimate athletes the skills of the game. Every card holds a different skill, technique or drill that ultimate athletes can use at practice or in games.
Ulticards were designed by players with ultimate success at the highest levels of the sport–world champions, national team youth head coaches from the USA and Canada–teachers, and educators. Ulticards is used by USA Ultimate, the governing body for ultimate in the USA, and by its certified coaches.
Ulticards offers four types of packs: the Essential, Throwing, Drills, and Rules Trivia.
The Essential pack is a deck of cards teaching the essentials of the game. It describes different types of throws, catches, and offensive and defensive strategies. The Throwing pack includes much more in-depth information and more advanced techniques than the Essentials pack. The Drills pack features games and drills for 2-20 kids. The games are fun and help to improve ultimate knowledge and skills. The UltiRules Trivia pack is a fun trivia game that teaches the rules of the sport.
