Youth Ultimate 2018

Anchorage Ultimate is currently coordinating with elementary and middle schools in Anchorage to set up after school programs in the spring and the fall to help integrate Ultimate into the  Anchorage Community.  If you are involved with a school that would be interested in setting up a program, contact us! We can help set up a one time field day or youth game/clinic. We can also help set up a weekly after school program at your school. We work on a volunteer basis and there is no cost to schools.

Community Outreach

Girl Scout encampment

Anchorage Ultimate volunteers put on clinics at the Annual Girl Scout Encampment in Palmer at the State Fair Grounds in 2017.  Girls from all over the state had the opportunity to learn about the sport of ultimate and play outside in the sunshine. They participated spirit games, came up with cheers, practiced throwing and then got to play some 'real' games.  Everyone had an amazing time and we look forward to next year!

 Girls scouts playing a spirit game called mingle to warm up and get to know each other at the start of the clinic.

 Leaders and girl scouts participated in a throwing relay to practice running & catching, stopping with the disc and throwing to space before playing a full game.

After School Programs


Several Anchorage elementary schools have been offering after school programs in the fall and spring.

"The kids at Inlet View LOVED working with Anchorage Ultimate super stars – Brian, Jacob, and Heidi.  Our 4th through 6th graders had a blast learning the basics of Ultimate during a six week session of PLAY! Our frisbee club was open to boys, girls, and all skill levels, and I can honestly say that EVERYONE HAD FUN!"

Family Health & Safety Day
