CUC volunteers presented this week at the annual CTAHPERD conference, introducing the sport of Ultimate to new physical education teachers. The presentation included the basics of Ultimate and several demonstrations of useful drills that may be used in classes. This successful outreach was supported by presentation materials provided by USA Ultimate, and four highly motivated CUC volunteers Owen Butler, Zach Putney, James Sweney, and Chuck Dortenzio.
