Kids and sports
Ultimate de Oro EAFIT 2012” from Flickr user Universidad EAFIT

On the next Outdoor Explorer we have a variety of stories about organized sports and kids. We’re starting with a discussion of Ultimate Frisbee. If you thought it was a disorganized hippie activity, you have much to learn. We’re going to hear about serious ultimate and the group in town that is trying to start a youth league– parents listen up. We’ll also talk about biking for girls, a triathalon that benefits a sick child, and much more.

Thanks for listening!
