20 minutes: beginner throwing (backhand, forehand) and catching
10 minutes: beginner cutting
10 minutes: beginner defense
5 minutes: throwing re-cap
5 minutes: warm-down, dynamic & static stretching

Client Reviews

Theo is a very experienced and focused coach. He has been my coach for two summers, a season that has always ended at nationals. Each practice had a focus, that may be marking, field placement, strategy, etc. and each practice was a building block to improve us as ultimate players. One of his many strengths is knowing rules, teaching them, and applying them to the game. Not only is Theo an amazing coach he also shows his love for ultimate by being a member of the Vermont Youth Ultimate League Board. He is one of most active members.
Having been involved either as a player or a coach with teams ranging from youth to masters, Theo has tons of experience in the world of Ultimate. His best quality as a coach is his ability to present that experience in a practical and understandable way. He’s great at providing in game context and specific drills in order to back up his knowledge. I learned a lot working with Theo. He’s a really cool guy, as well as a fun and effective coach.
Theo was my high school coach and coached the Vermont All-Star team I was a part of. He really helped foster my love for Ultimate. He was fantastic working on throws in particular, as well as teaching me the basics of the game. Theo's passion for Ultimate shines through in his coaching. He is an extremely amiable person, fun to work with, and exceptional at refining the technical aspects of one's game.
Theo is a fantastic coach. During my first year of playing ultimate he really encouraged me to hone my skills, and instilled in me a solid love for the game. He taught me to have fun and play the game at the highest level. With my college team now I think of how lucky I was to get into this sport early and to be coached by Theo.
