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.

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