Don’t miss our annual Ultimate Frisbee Game with Jeff Landesman and Family, Saturday, July 25 at 3:00 pm. We promise it will be FUN for all ages.
Jeff volunteers with Ultimate Peace, an organization with “high hopes of spreading the joy of throwing a disc and playing Ultimate on a global level.”
After more than 30 years of playing, coaching, and teaching Ultimate, Jeff is still enamored with Spirit of the Game. It is the reason why he started playing Ultimate, and it is the reason why he keeps playing as often as possible. Jeff began his Ultimate career as a junior in high school in New York City. His team won the New York state championship, and Ultimate has been a major part of his life ever since.
Jeff has competed in more than 15 national and world championships. He has been teaching an Ultimate P.E. class at the California Institute of Technology since 1996, and uses Ultimate in his curriculum teaching special education classes at Madison Elementary School in Pomona, California. Jeff has also coached many college teams including The Claremont Braineaters, a team he founded as a freshman at Pitzer College in 1979.
When he got the chance to accompany The Matza Balls to Israel in October of 2005 a dream was realized. It was the highlight of his Ultimate career. Jeff can think of no better vehicle for peace then the Spirit of the Game inherent in Ultimate.
