The mission of Ultimate Spirit is to “strengthen lasting relationships with communities through play and connection by sharing the spirit, culture, and sport of ultimate.” The project will strengthen relationships through play and connection with an emphasis on the values of community, play, culture, and connection. Over 13 months, we will work with four to five First Nation schools in British Columbia to implement Ultimate Spirit. Three programs will be run in each school, with each program consisting of 10 sessions. Over the course of the programs and sessions, the youth will be invited to participate in “Ultimate Spirit” -- a journey of learning elements of the game, while exploring values of connection, inclusion, play, spirit, community, and respect through the vessel of Ultimate Frisbee.
There could be some incurred travel cost to and from each school but as the program is just in the infancy that is not clear at this time.
