USA Ultimate: 2018 U.S. Open

The USA Ultimate - 2018 U.S. Open Club Championships garnered international attention from all over the world. Some teams travel from as far as Japan to compete! It is a low-cost sport that children and adults can enjoy to stay active and maintain a healthy lifestyle. There are many benefits and reasons why Ultimate is a great sport, but the most important reason is that each player is held accountable to the Spirit of the Game philosophy, "a spirit of sportsmanship". A philosophy that can be applied on and off the field. 

On Aug. 3-6, 2018, PM&R Drs. Alexander Senk and Jason Eggers provided medical coverage for the event along with PM&R Residents Drs. Logan McCool, Anthony Cavalli, Joseph Benert, and Orthopaedic Intern Michaela. The number 10 item on the Spirit of the Game philosophy is to have fun, something that our physicians bring into their everyday care with patients and the community. Learn more about Ultimate and the Spirit of the Game philosophy here.
