Spiders Ultimate Sports Class

Offered in partnership with Bay Area Parks and Recreation Departments, school districts, and other youth organizations, Spiders Ultimate Sports Classes are designed to introduce new and recreational players to Ultimate in a safe, fun, beginner-friendly environment. Generally offered once per week in 4-6 week sessions for Grades 3-5, these classes are a great way to learn fundamental Ultimate skills through mini-games, drills, and modified Ultimate games. Registration includes a Spiders team disc and other prizes, and the opportunity to meet Spiders coaches and players first-hand. 

Spiders Elite Training Clinics

Designed for Middle School players familiar with the basic skills and rules of Ultimate, Spiders Elite Training Clinics help players develop their Ultimate specific skills such as throwing, handling, cutting and defending. Elite Training Clinics are offered on weekends throughout the Fall, Winter, and Spring and led by experienced Spiders coaches and current players. Registration includes a Spiders team disc, reversible jersey, and pizza dinner.

For those players preparing for competitive school, club, college, YCC or similar teams/tournaments, Spiders coaches and players are available for private or semi-private training.
