Happy 4th of July! Today’s busy day started with the morning session, which included a mental toughness exercise, drill time to work on team-specific offenses and defenses, a short scrimmage, and the women’s game. Tuesday at NUTC means pink Tuesday and there were plenty of pink jerseys, shorts, and accessories on display. Right before lunch, players received their team jerseys and took an all-camp photo.
After lunch, campers took part in disc olympics, competing in the distance competition and most time aloft contest before playing the first two rounds of the tournament. There were lots of smiles, hard work, and athletic play on all three fields.
Dinner was followed by a Gender Equity meeting where campers discussed problems with and solutions to the gender disparity in Ultimate. After a good camp-wide discussion, campers met with their team counselors for both team and individual meetings to gain feedback, ask questions, and discuss their NUTC experiences.
