Building Communities Through Team Sports

Building group awareness and cooperation through practice of team sports. How to teach life skills using a team sport.

Playing a team sport is equal parts about the team and the sport. Learning the skills of the game is only half the job done. Working with a group of humans can be a complex exercise under any circumstances (not just sport). But can we use sport to learn how to work with a bunch of fellow humans? Sport can mimic life in many ways and give us a low stakes environment to make mistakes and learn from it. If we get good at this game, we could also get good at building caring and empathetic social surrpinding for ourselves and others. We will be exploring these aspects of sports while having fun playing a sport called ’ Ultimate Frisbee’.
