Skills Ready: Ultimate Skills

Social and Emotional Learning        

The over-arching principal of Ultimate is the “Spirit of the Game” which requires and promotes self-awareness, self-management, responsible decision making, relationship skills and social awareness.   After each game the players form the Spirit Circle – a ritual that extends the physical and verbal interaction of the game just played to a deeper level of connectivity and relationship.   During the Spirit Circle, players identify post-game emotions (self-awareness), link arms with their opponents (self-management), build relationships with the other team (relationship skills), practice perspective taking (social awareness), and reflect on their collective performance and behaviour (responsible decision-making).
