DC’s Truck Stop and Scandal for a DC Area Youth Clinic
Date/Time: October 13th, 1-4pm
Location: Washington-Lee High School
The DC Area Youth Clinic with Truck Stop and Scandal was a huge success! With over 60 kids in attendance, the clinic had a wide range of ages from middle school through high school, and from kids who have played competitively for years to those who were just learning how to throw.
The clinic consisted of four mini fields and eight teams based on age and skill level. The teams scrimmaged against each other in a round robin format – four middle school teams in one pool and four high school teams in the other group. In between each game, the middle school group and high school group did drills focusing on a different skill. The middle school group worked on pivoting while the disc is in your hands and running down hucks thrown by Truck and Scandal players. The high school group worked on dumping and swinging as well as offensive cutting flow drills.
To finish up, one member of each team was awarded a Spirit Award disc by their Truck Stop and Scandal team leaders. The disc is for displaying the Spirit of the Game qualities that are central to the sport of ultimate – sportsmanship, enthusiasm, and desire to learn. The clinic ended with a big huddle and cheer of "DC!".
Thanks to everyone who came out; hope to see you all out at events like this again in the near future!

Spirit of the Game
Ultimate relies upon a spirit of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the player. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of mutual respect among competitors, adherence to the agreed upon rules, or the basic joy of play. Protection of these vital elements serves to eliminate unsportsmanlike conduct from the Ultimate field. Such actions as taunting opposing players, dangerous aggression, belligerent intimidation, intentional infractions, or other 'win-at-all-costs' behavior are contrary to the Spirit of the Game and must be avoided by all players.
