Ultimate Frisbee TEAm Season Wrap-Up

The TEAm, nicknamed the Yetis, was made up of 16 students, 9th - 12th-grade boys and girls.

This fall, TEA launched its first-ever Ultimate Frisbee TEAm – designed for high school age boys and girls. Student-athletes enjoyed practicing on the incredible Martis Valley Campus field twice a week from October till late November.

The TEAm, nicknamed the Yetis, was made up of 16 students, 9th – 12th-grade boys and girls. US Teacher, Nilo Bill, organized the season, created this awesome offering based on his experience playing in college and beyond. He was joined by PE Teacher and Assistant Coach, Patrick O’Malley, who also played on the Korean National Ultimate Frisbee Team. Each coach taught participants the fundamentals and team concepts of this fun, challenging and rapidly growing sport.

During the Fall, our TEAm practiced plenty and even competed against Squaw Valley Academy, hosting a game here on campus and winning in fine fashion!

The season ended with a competitive and culminating December Ultimate Frisbee tournament in the East Bay. The field was comprised of some of the most competitive high school teams in the West, including last year’s national champion! The Yetis played four games in the tournament – finishing with a record of 1 win and 3 losses – a major success, considering the short time we’ve had a TEAm.

A major success too, because everyone had a blast together and are looking forward to more Ultimate come Spring!
