2018 Ultimate Frisbee Program

This parent-led program is one of several activities sponsored by funds raised at 2017’s SPRING FLING. This was the 4th full season that the program has been offered at Dickens.  

Approximately 165 Grade 5,6 & 7 students played ultimate as part of their PE instruction.  57 Players, plus some drop-ins, joined the after-school club program for 15 sessions from late April until early June - these were a mix of practices and games versus other schools.

18 Grade 7 athletes from the club program were integrated into a practice run with the Ultimate Team at Sir Charles Tupper Secondary, providing an additional link for students transitioning to high school next year.  

We took part in 2 full day tournaments: 

25 Athletes in Grade 7 competed in the “Sabrefest” hosted by Stratford Hall. They played against 22 other teams from across the Lower Mainland at Montgomery Park. Our top team finished 5th. 

The second tournament was the "2nd Annual VSB City Championship" which had 37 elementary school teams competing. Our top Grade 7 team finished 3rd!

Many thanks to Dickens Parents, Todd Hickling and Ania Jakobs, and to the other wonderful parents for organizing this fun-filled  program!
