Loppet Ultimate Program

Opportunities For Youth 10-18 Years Old

Summer Ultimate Frisbee Camps, June and July 2023

Beginners

The Beginner camp is a good fit for athletes between the ages of 11-16 that are new to the sport and want to get a fun and comprehensive introduction to what Ultimate Frisbee is all about.  The beginner camp will focus on teaching the rules of the game, basic throws such as Forehands and Backhands, what “spirit of the game” is, and what it means to play a self-officiated sport. Most importantly, having fun in a safe manner will be our priority. 

Intermediates

The Intermediate camp is a good fit for anyone between the ages of 11-16 that are familiar with throwing Backhand and Forehand but are new to vertical/horizontal stack, and handling and cutting. 

Advanced 

The advanced camp looks to strengthen big throws like backhand and forehand hucks, common vertical stack set plays as well as horizontal stack set plays, 1 on1 defensive skills and marking skills, how to play good defense as an individual and how to play good defense as a team. These skills will be coached by high-level ultimate players that are enthusiastic to grow the skill level of young ultimate athletes.

All Camps Held at Lake Nokomis playing fields

Equipment Needed:

  • Cleats without metal spikes (soccer, baseball, or football cleats), if the player does not have cleats tennis/running shoes are the next best option
  • A FULL WATER BOTTLE
  • A Light and Dark T-Shirt
  • Lunch & Snacks 
  • Swimsuit and Towel (Beginners and intermediate) 

Cleats are not absolutely necessary for campers but are highly encouraged for intermediate and advanced players. Water bottles will be very important for campers to bring as there will be a lot of physical activities. There will be a water cooler on site for campers to refill their bottles as needed. Swimsuits and towels will be needed for the Beginner/intermediate sessions as we plan on taking advantage of the beach that’s right across the street! Advanced campers will be notified a day before if we plan to go to the beach.

The Loppet Ultimate Program’s (LUP) mission is to provide equitable access for youth in the Twin Cities to learn the sport of Ultimate, connect with members of the Ultimate community, and be mentored by experienced Ultimate players. Through each week of camp, we hope to convey our passion for Ultimate to our campers through a fun, safe, and community-focused learning environment. Ultimate has a tight knit and welcoming community that continues to grow every year. The sport of Ultimate centers the camp but having FUN and inclusion is at the forefront of the LUP experience. LUP is dedicated to promoting diversity and inclusion in Ultimate. As of right now, Ultimate is a predominantly white sport, however through the LUP camps and clinics we aspire to bring diversity into the ultimate community.

Why should I go to Loppet Ultimate Camp?

  • Fun outside, develop new skills with coaches who love the sport
  • Get some exercise, improve quickness, speed, jumping ability and overall athleticism
  • Campers get to take home a frisbee and a custom reversible pinnie 
  • Learn the “Spirit of the Game” – why ultimate frisbee is unique among team sports
  • Make new friends and join a very welcoming Ultimate community!

LUP is looking to strengthen the Minnesota ultimate youth scene. States with good ultimate programs are good because the best players in those states come back to coach the youth. That is what LUP is striving for, coaching the youth the ins and outs of what it looks like to play on the next level. LUP is looking to develop a culture of really good players (or campers) coming back to teach the youth what they’ve learned in hopes of turning Minnesota into an ultimate powerhouse!
