I joined the Ultimate Frisbee clinic yesterday at the Nestea Fit Camp Hot in Fort Bonifacio, near BHS. We went there at 8:30am to register for the 9-11am session.
For P150, we got a small Rudy Project bag with a Nestea shirt (that we were supposed to wear during the clinic), a pseudo Road ID, sunblock, and a tumbler for your bottomless Nestea. It was definitely good value!
During the session, we were about 50-60 pax, but there were a lot of trainors to manage us well. We did basic backhand & forehand throws, a defense drill, and yes...we got to play! :) Our newbie team won despite not having a game plan while the other team took it too seriously. :P
Since we were bitin, I decided to go back there on the same day for the 3-5pm session with bro. This time, I was able to play for almost an hour. :D Super saya & I agree with Julie, it can be really addicting. I met a few regular players who meet every Monday in the Meralco open field. I plan to go there to see how I can improve my game.
Being the runner that I am, I asked our trainor..."I've been getting bruises on my hand from catching the frisbee...are these the common injuries in UF?" No, the common injuries are ACL & MCL. A big uh-oh me. :P
I've been inviting other Takbo.ph peeps with a little warning that this sport isn't for you if you're really serious into running, coz of the lateral movements. However, if you're pasaway like me or if you just want to get a feel of Ultimate Frisbee, TARA NA! There are still 4 Saturday sessions starting on March 6.
I'm having fun here. Let's see where this rabbit hole goes... :)
