Ultimate Frisbee is a limited-contact team field sport played with a flying disc (frisbee). Points are scored by passing the disc to a teammate in the opposing end zone. A relatively new sport but gaining lots of popularity for its ability to mix fun with a quality work out.

In addition to being a physical activity, dancing is also a highly social activity. Dance can help children improve their social and communication skills, learn how to work as part of a team, develop a greater sense of trust and cooperation and make new friends.

Rounders

Rounders Featured

The game of rounders has been played in England since Tudor times, with the earliest reference being in 1744 in “A Little Pretty Pocketbook” where it was called baseball. This is a sport primarily played in school but US baseball authoritarians agree it was likely their game derived from rounders.
