Kishroniyah Ultimate Frisbee: Magshimim, Bogrim, Machon & Nivonim

The Ultimate Frisbee Kishroniyah workshop, led by Rich Atkins (bio, below) honed in on developing the skills and teamwork necessary to build a great team.  They also learned the rules, such as: the definition of “possession” is sustained contact with a non-spinning disc.  These intensive few days spent on Ultimate may have contributed to…our phenomenal Roo (all-day athletic competition vs. Ramah Berkshires) win?
