UMBC Women's Ultimate Hosts Layout Clinic

On Sunday, March 25th, the women’s ultimate team helped to host a layout clinic with the club team, Backhanded Compliments, in our very own RAC. Players from neighboring schools, such as Goucher, Towson, John’s Hopkins, and even Georgetown University, made their way to UMBC's campus to participate. Even alumni players, including coaches and upper-level club team players graced us with their presence and showed off their skills.

Many who don’t play ultimate ask, what is a layout? In the game, a layout is when a person vertically dives to catch a disc before it hits the ground, or on defense, it is done to catch or block a disc from the opponent. This is an important part of higher-level ultimate, and it is extremely important to know how to layout correctly in order to avoid injury.

Coach and experienced player, Zara Cadoux, set up stations with different types of safety mats, to help players learn how to layout. The stations included core-strengthening exercises, a “face your fears” mat, throwing routines, and finally, a run-and-jump exercise. Girls had a field day with the stations and there were notable bids from some of our very own players.

It was a successful day for UMBC women’s ultimate, connecting the ultimate community and promoting the sport within our campus.
