Chemainus Secondary students catch on quick to Ultimate Frisbee

Sport experts provide instruction in a two-day clinic during physical education classes

An Ultimate Frisbee clinic proved an interesting experience for students at Chemainus Secondary School.

Held over two days, May 6 and 7, some pros came in from Victoria to teach the physical education classes.

Students had a lot of fun learning about Ultimate Frisbee from Jimmy Roney, Claire Remington and Casey Skrepneck who directed the sessions. The sport is catching on like wildfire in popularity.

There was also an Indoor Archery clinic held recently that spanned two days in the gym.
