Aspengrove School has a strong and thriving Ultimate Frisbee program. In addition to competing and travelling as a school team, they join forces with staff members in a local community league as well.

The official final score of the match was something like “a-whole-lot to not-much” in favour of the younger team. But it’s not about wins and losses – it’s about celebrating community, a growing successful sport at Aspengrove – and having a lot of fun together.
