BUDA and Lexington Recreation are providing an expanded youth Ultimate program this fall. This fun, fast-paced sport is popular in schools and in adult recreational and competitive leagues. Our program is designed to teach kids all they need to know in order to play and have fun. A new competitive program is available as well.

The programs all feature a mix of individual skills work, group games, and drills. They’re designed to be fun and very active. All players should bring water. For the more advanced groups, it is highly recommend all players come with soccer cleats, but sneakers are fine for the introductory players.
For younger players, U10 and U12 programs which will teach basic skills and an introduction to Ultimate. Generally, the focus is on small games with no more than 4 players per side in order to maximize playing time and touches. The U10 and U12 programs will run side by side. Our coaches will move players from one program to the other as is appropriate.

For advanced 12 year olds and all 13-15 year olds, the U15 Developmental program will continue instruction and emphasize more Ultimate scrimmaging, understanding rules, and basic strategy. Games are generally kept to no more than 5 players per side.

 For players who wish to compete against other teams and to prepare themselves for high school competition, we are now offering a U15 Travel team. This group will focus more intensely on advanced skills (e.g., breaking mark, hucking, reading the disc, defensive positioning) and strategy (e.g., zone). The first session will be a “tryout” session. Players who are not yet ready will be placed in the U15 Developmental program. The two U15 programs will run side by side. On 2-3 weekends, the U15 Travel program will have a 3-hour round robin tournament instead of their usual practice time. It is likely that these events will be local.
