This is a huge undertaking but I think I have the solution: Ultimate Frisbee. Ultimate Frisbee is a coo-ed sport, that is self reffered that promotes good sports menship and team work. Last year, some friends and I were playing a pick up game of ultimate frisbee. A teacher on his way home saw us playing, and, being an ultimate fanatic, was egear to find others that played this sport. In a short amount of time, we put together a team (of just the most intresting group of kids in the school, about a third of these kids had never played a school sport before) and were entered in the Maine High School Ultimate League. All of us on the team learned so much about this sport and created a close bound with each other.
I had just such a positive expericence last year with the team that I want to make sure it happen this year and years to come. With lots of hard work, this year we are recognized as a club by the school. The team is mostly student lead, we have no founding from the school, so our wonderful coaches are helping us out of the goodness of their own hearts. To ensure that we stick around we are looking for some money for jersey's, cones, and a few discs that would go to Windham High School Ultimate team.
