The campers had a very busy day today, which started off with team time during the morning session. Counselors taught their teams offensive and defensive strategies to use during the tournament. Immediately afterwards, teams were able to try out what they learned in scrimmages, before everyone gathered for the women’s game. With lots of fast paced action, the male campers cheered on their female teammates. Before lunch, campers got together for the all-camp and individual team photos.
Most of the afternoon session consisted of competitions for the Disc Olympics – distance throwing, most time aloft (MTA), and disc-a-thon. Campers played a brief scrimmage before ending early for NUTC’s first ever field trip!
In lieu of holding a gender equity meeting, all the campers and the entire staff of NUTC headed to Medford, MA to go watch the EuroStars take on Boston Brute Squad. The EuroStar team is an all-star team composed of 16 elite female players from 11 different European countries. Brute Squad is Boston’s top female club team and defending National Champion. Session A counselor Angela Zhu and Session D counselor Tulsa Douglas both cleated up for Brute Squad. The campers took advantage of seeing their counselor play on the big stage with an active cheering section. At the conclusion of the game, campers had the opportunity to get discs signed by the EuroStars.
