Summer’s Best New Activity
Growing up, I was always exposed to summer sports. This included baseball, soccer, and numerous football camps. The one activity I didn’t do, however, is the one I do the most now: throwing a Frisbee.
"But wait,” I’m sure you’re saying, “what is so special about Frisbee?” Well, let me tell you.
Most summer sports require some kind of equipment in order to play. Baseball requires a bat, ball, glove, cleats, and so on. Football requires you to provide a mouth-guard and cleats. Soccer also needs specific cleats, shin-guards, and a ball. What does Frisbee require? A Frisbee. Yep, that’s it.
When was the last time you played a game of football, baseball, or soccer with only two people? Let me rephrase that…when was the last time you had a lot of fun playing with only two people? Find a Frisbee, an open field, and a couple friends, and have a blast.
This has rapidly become one of the most popular sports to play for young adults, and it's easy to see why. Acrobatic catches, full-sprints, and fast-paced action define this growing sport. What's even better is that this game is very accessible for all players.
My crooked fingers and shoulder pain constantly remind me of my days playing contact sports. Unless you decide to fire your Frisbee out of a cannon, and I’m not sure why you would do that, Frisbee remains a pain and injury-free game that all ages can enjoy.
