CASCADES CAMP

Sunday, June 30th — Wednesday, July 3rd

Fort Casey on Whidbey Island

 
 

Overnight Camp!

The Seattle Cascades are hosting a 4-day youth ultimate camp at Fort Casey on Whidbey Island. Kids will sleep in the bunk rooms, and eat in the Camp Casey cafeteria.

Over the course of the camp, we will offer a variety of ultimate training sessions suitable for different levels of play, so all experience levels are encouraged to attend.

Beginners focus on solidifying skills, fundamental strategies, and spirited play. Experienced players have opportunities to engage in intermediate and advanced ultimate tactics, in addition to refining skills, practicing SOTG, and making friends!  Sessions will include a strength & agility component and each day will include multiple scrimmages.

Registration is open to students entering 6th grade up to students entering 11th grade. We are designating an equal number of registration spots for young female and male athletes.

We communicate primarily by email, but if you’d like to talk on the phone, we can arrange a time to talk.
