DC Breeze players and staff, along with Kelly Ross of elite DC mixed team Ambiguous Grey, spent two days at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, VA teaching Ultimate skills and techniques in clinics for each of the six 9th grade P.E. classes. It was another successful clinic series in the busy Breeze offseason as the team continues to expose DC area youth to the sport along with the incredible support of DC’s elite Ultimate community. In addition to receiving instruction from Ross and the Breeze’s Ben Feng and Tyler Monroe, the 9th graders also enjoyed contributions from Rachel Hess, a member of the back-to-back U19 championship winning mixed team Swing Vote and a Senior at Washington-Lee. The Arlington County School Board recently made Ultimate an official sport in Arlington’s public middle and high schools (story here).
The Breeze are already working on repeat performances at other area high schools this Fall as one of the primary initiatives for Feng, the team’s new Youth and Gender Equity Coordinator. Below is a video montage from Friday’s action with music compliments of one of our 2016 pregame Indie bands, Squid Inc., followed below by photos from both days.
