Slice of Life Challenge Day 3#
Have you ever heard of ultimate frisbee as a sport? Well I hadn’t until yesterday, when our latest cycling couple landed on our doorstep (ie where we run our little school in northeast India). Seems we’re currently on the route between Nepal and Myanmar and cycling is the new ‘way to go’ method of travel! More of that in another slice I’m sure….
Apart from all arriving on bikes, the couples and singles (twelve to date) who’ve been through so far, have had diverse interests. Most are pretty good at some kind of sport, which varies from ironman triathlon, to rugby, to kayaking and now ultimate frisbee!
In brief, it’s a fast moving seven a side, non contact sport, where you catch the frisbee and are not allowed to move with it, so teamwork is essential!
Our younger students who could barely handle a ball just a few weeks ago at the start of our school year, are now learning how to throw and catch a frisbee.
Who would have thought such stimulating opportunities could become available in a remote little corner of India?!
