Ra’anana Park Frisbee Trick Shot Video – Israel

This trick shot video was filmed in Ra’anana Park, Israel featuring Yarden, Semo, and Avner on behalf of Fresh Ultimate. Ra’anana Park is a beautiful park with lots of open grassy spaces, climbing structures, a train that brings guests all throughout the park, and multiple courts for sports such as basketball, soccer, hockey, and skateboarding.

Catch Both Ways #zipstips

When throwing on the green or when warming up make sure to catch “both ways.” Alternate catching with your right hand versus your left hand on top of the pancake. For good throws, this doesn’t make much of a difference, but if an errant throw is to the right of your body, it will be easier to catch left on top, and the same goes for the other side, but switched. The more comfortable you are catching both ways, the more natural it will be for you to catch with the correct orientation. I guarantee your drops will go down if you work on this.

Help Grow The Sport By Becoming a Patron

Help Grow the Sport!

My life, my passion, my purpose, and my primary goal is to introduce frisbee to as many people (mainly kids) as possible and to challenge them to Get Unplugg’d. My slogan is “Let the Wind Guide You“.

Become a Patron

To date, I’ve spoken in more than 200 schools and taught frisbee to more than 50,000 kids. I have also traveled all over the world and interviewed many hall of fame frisbee players. With your help, I can continue to do more.

Everyone Needs a Hero – Especially Kids

If we were to ask a kid to come up a list of their heroes from the pro sports leagues, they might say something similar to the following: NHL – Sydney Crosby; NFL – Peyton Manning; NBA – Lebron James; MLB – Mike Trout. Why are each of these players considered heroes to the kids? The reality is that 99% of kids will never get to meet any of these players and if they do, it will be an autograph and a photo to remember their meeting. Is that really what a hero represents though?

Thoughts on Spirit of the Game with Dan “Stork” Roddick

Dan “Stork” Roddick is a friend and mentor and is widely considered the Godfather of Frisbee. Stork is in all of the frisbee hall of fames (UltimateDisc GolfFreestyle, and Frisbee), has been playing and growing the sport for more than 50 years, and is still actively involved in playing, growing, and guiding the direction of the future of frisbee.

Stork was tasked with writing the section on Spirit of the Game which became part of the rules of ultimate in the 1970’s. I reached out to Stork to ask him more about how the idea of Spirit first came about about below is his response to that question, and a video I filmed of Stork in 2011 talking about the Origins of Spirit. Enjoy!
