On Thursday 26th June a group of GU coaches went along to Fullbrook School in West Byfleet to assist in the running of the school’s first ever Ultimate tournament!
Nine teams from three schools attended (Fullbrook, Rydens and Salesians) and after some great play and several close matches, Fullbrook were crowned the champions.

The session started with some basic throwing and catching skills with demonstrations and tips from the GU players. Followed by the 5-aside tournament, with a GU captain on each team to help with tactics. The presentation at the end saw brand new discs being awarded to the winning team and two tournament MVPs.
If you’d like to help with future junior coaching, or you know a school who would be interested in running a similar event, get in touch!
There will be no training on Saturday 21st or Monday 23rd June.
This weekend, most of the club are away at Open/Womens Tour 2 in Nottingham.
You can follow the team on Twitter, @gfordultimate or keep an eye on all the scores with the live schedule: http://goo.gl/ksXvgW

Everyone welcome, no charge. Bring a light and dark top, boots, and water.
If you’re coming, it would help if you could like the post on the FB group so we have an idea of numbers.
Pick up will run until it starts getting too dark/cold in September.
