Ultimate teaches self-esteem, confidence, sportsmanship, team concept and positive attitude.

Ultimate Frisbee™ (simply referred to as “Ultimate”) is one of the fastest growing sports in the United States and is played in more than 80 countries across the globe by an estimated 7 million people. This incredibly athletic and thrilling non-contact sport is a combination of soccer’s non-stop movement and flow, combined with American football’s accurate aerial passing. Similar to football, the game of Ultimate is played by two teams of players (7 on each side), trying to score by catching a flying disc or Frisbee™ in the opponent’s end zone. Ultimate is played at many levels including middle school and high school leagues, college club, and professional city teams.

Ultimate is still dominated by adult athletes, but the global ultimate community has been working hard to spread this sport to the youth level. In the last few years, there has been a rapid emergence of new high school teams, youth programs, and even summer camps. Nike Sports Camps began offering youth ultimate camps at 6 locations nationwide in 2013 and has expanded their Nike Ultimate Camp offerings to include over a dozen summer locations and a spring camp location for 2015. As the largest youth ultimate camp network in the world, Nike Ultimate Camps is at the forefront of the youth ultimate movement and is determined to reach more young athletes than ever this year.

“We have worked hard to expand our youth ultimate camps network,” says Charlie Hoeveler, Founder and CEO of US Sports Camps. “Ultimate teaches self-esteem, confidence, sportsmanship, team concept and positive attitude. It feels great to impart such important lessons upon our campers and to be able to offer quality camps in this highly athletic, fast-paced sport.”
