We currently offer two sports opportunities for students at Lewis and Clark Montessori Charter School. Ultimate Frisbee includes developmental and compettive divisions for both elementary and middle school students. Additionally, 4th through 8th grade students may participate on the school’s cross country team. Please see below for more information and registration instructions.
Ultimate is a fast paced team game played with a disc (frisbee). It is a co-ed, non-contact sport that is similar to soccer. Ultimate players manage and referee their own games based on a key pillar of the sport: the Spirit of the Game.
Based on interest & participation, LCMCS will field both middle school and elementary Ultimate teams in the fall and in the spring. We practice during the week afterschool and then compete against other teams on the weekends in a league run by Portland Ultimate.
In the past, our teams have competed in both the fall and spring leagues and in all day tournaments. In the spiring of 2019 our middle school team won the Spirit Award at the end of the season tournament.
This is a co-ed 4v4 league. The league is open to elementary school-based teams (grades 3-5),
Middle School Team
This is a co-ed 5v5 league, 3:2 gender ratio. The league is open to middle school-based teams (grades 6-8).
Please send an email to Peter Jensen at firstname.lastname@example.org, expressing your child’s interest in participating in the Ultimate Frisbee program.
Fall 2019: we didn’t get enough interest for a fall Ultimate team to play in the Portland Ultimate league so we are offering a non-competitive club through the CLC.
The club will focus mainly on skill building, spirit, team play & fitness with the goal of building interest and a team for the spring season.
- Practices on Tuesdays from 3:35-5 pm (starting 9/17)
- Running through the end of October.
- No official games or weekends.
You can always join the cross country team even after the season has started. Contact Coach Peter Jensen at email@example.com to participate or find out more.
Each fall all 4th-8th year LCMCS students are invited to join the LCMCS Explorers Cross Country Team’s participation in the North Clackamas League within the Willamette River Conference.
Cross country running is both a team and individual sport that’s a good fit for Montessori students.
Now in it’s sixth year, our team is running strong and is coached by lifelong runner, Peter Jensen. Together, students will experience running as a healthy lifestyle and gain skills important to the development of any young athlete.
Returning runners will build on their experience from privious years. New team members may try cross country for the first week for free but will need a current physical exam to participate.
Please note that we will not have an activity bus [after practices.] First Student cancelled this service due to a shortage of drivers. Carpools may be arranged independently and we will assist by connecting families who have this need.
- Practices are on Mondays, Wednesdays & Thursdays from 3:35-4:45. Our first practice is afterschool on Wednesday, September 4th.
- League meets will start in late Sept and will take place off campus from 4-6pm usually on a Wednesday or Thursday. There will only be one weekday meet per week.
- Invitational meets will start in early September and are on the weekends. These meets usually take a good chunk of the day usually in the morning.
- The season ends on November 3rd.
- Please click here to download and complete the 2019 LCMCS Cross Country Registration Form. Each partiipation must also complete a Middle School Athletic Participation and Insurance Waiver Form. These forms may be scanned and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or dropped off at the school office.
- New athletes will need a Physical Exam and returned a signed Middle School Sports Physical Exam Form prior to participating in practice. Physical exams are good for two years so returning athletes with an updated and current exam form on file with the school, do not need an exam this year.
- An E.P.C. (emergency procedure card) is also required by the North Clackamas League. (Coming soon)
- There is a $120 fee to cover the cost of participation in cross country. Payment may be made by cash or check at the school’s front desk. Or, click here to pay online.
