I just wanted to say that days after receiving my first order from you (despatched pleasingly quickly) I've found myself ordering again! One disc for a friend that's become hooked after a weekend of messing around with mine and a couple of others just to explore what they're like. Keep up the good work. Andrew

Thank you for making the training very positive today. I certainly enjoyed the training, found it fun and an activity that can be introduced and developed in a number of ways. I thought your delivery & manner was excellent & provided a very warm/positive vibe! The playground supervisors thoroughly enjoyed the day & now have no excuses in developing Frisbee in their schools & I am very keen to introduce at least one inter school competition including Frisbee Golf & Ultimate at some point in the year. The resources look great & I was very impressed with the certificates too!

Jenny Finney, Head of Girls PE, Haydock Sports College

I have just completed the Disc Golf Leaders course led by the unnervingly talented Chris O'Brien. It was packed full of brilliant activities designed to engage newcomers (young and old) to disc golf. Chris presents the activities in a highly accessible way and quite frankly left me wanting more! Simply put, it was superb. I really enjoyed it and just re-affirmed my growing enthusiasm for the sport. Disc Golf is awesome. I didn't realise it before, now I do. I hope my students are ready!
Dr Jaime Martin - Lecturer, Myerscough College, Preston

A very enjoyable course and something that certainly Key Stage 2 children will really enjoy. There was a good progression from the first throws to the Ultimate Frisbee game, which was great fun.

The discs arrived today! Thanks again for the efficient service, will certainly be using you again in the future.

Jim Miller, Class Teacher, Deighton Gates Primary School, Wetherby

Just to say how much we all enjoyed our Frisbee Fun Day last week! The children thoroughly enjoyed the day with James, who was fantastic with all of them... especially as it was one of the very hot days which must have been exhausting for him! He was so enthusiastic and absolutely brilliant with all the year groups that he took. A huge thank you and hope to see you agian soon!

Tom Clayton, Teacher, St Martins Primary School, North Yorkshire

The training session was very well structured and organised. It was good to to see the demos of throwing and catching techniques and different ways to teach the kids which can be used when coaching. Everything was explained clearly and there were a lot of fun games taught. The handbook is very informative and shows great games that we can teach the children and recap knowledge.
Helen Shipman, Sports Coach, Aspire, West Midlands

Just a quick e mail to say a massive thank you for all your hard work over the last two days. It has had a massive impact on the kids already. Feeback from both staff and students has been hugely positive. It was great to see all the kids genuinely enjoying themselves and showing a positive attitude towards sport. Thanks again!!!!

Excellent! Active approach - opportunity to do as many activities as possible to suit all ages groups. I will implement throwing and catching skills (already planned for next term) and self governance for children to master - fair play.
Les Ball, Class Teacher, Chirbury Primary School

Excellent course - another sport to offer children who are never selected for the football, rugby, cricket, netball teams. High level of involvement and clear objectives. Looking forward to implementing in the summer term. Just keep on trucking! Good luck.

My order arrived perfectly and quickly. Thanks for the efficient service.
Mattia

Hi Chris, Just to let you know I receive the discs fine - thanks for your superb customer service. Kind regard Miles.
Miles

I can honestly say that have never experienced better customer service than I received today from Catch The Spirit. Having selected my discs, I was having the regular internet connection issues just as I was processing the payment. Before I had even finished reconnecting and completing the purchase my phone rang and it was none other than Chris at Catch The Spirit calling, to see if I was having difficulties with which he could help. Suffice to say that my order has now been processed and I have had the opportunity to talk to someone about the sport that I love. A very good day. Thanks Catch The Spirit! Thanks Chris!
Ben Teal, Cornwall

Excellent - can see a real opportunity for young people to engage in an energetic fun sport. I liked the variety of games and skills for all ages with relatively little equipment.
Chris Wilson, Head of PE, Wilson Stuart School Sport Partnership, Birmingham

Excellent course with plenty of hints and tips with time to practice and try things out. Loads of games and ideas too. The handbook looks like it's going to be very helpful.
Jo Clay, PE Teacher, Parkside School, County Durham

Hi Guys, just a note of thanks for the super speedy service (next day for first class) and the quality advice on your website. The Aerobie disc for the kids is ace and they are loving it, while the 'proper' 175g disc goes like a train (but hurts when you catch it badly!). Credit where it is due, really happy and loving playing Frisbee again, makes me want to grow my hair long and play The Doors....
Luke Collins

An excellent introduction that can easily be applied to Key Stage 3 and 4 practice. I enjoyed the practical involvement. I can't wait to introduce into school!
Nathan Rogers, PE Teacher, Comberton Village College, Cambridge

I got my frisbee yesterday. This is the coolest thing i've ever seen.. I think I will order some more..
Erthan, Turkey

Very clear instruction and hands on with lots of time to practice - useful ideas to take back into school and use in lessons.
Emma Goolden, PE Teacher, Plymouth High School for Girls

The half day training that the PE staff received was very relaxed taking them through the history and development of Frisbee and the adaptation into disc golf. Chris O Brien's knowledge, skills and enthusiasm really got the best from all of the PE staff. The course was mostly practical based with a pocket sized skills book to recap the skills when teaching students. The Frisbee skills have been used for course work as part of offending behaviour packages and use on small group work and one to one sessions.
Sean Kelly, Wetherby Young Offenders Institute

The course was excellent, fun and clear - accessible for my kids. I liked the fact is was practical - I know what it feels like so I can show others, also the enthusiasm of the trainer and simple instruction - we can do it!
Fiona Dewick - Class Teacher, Gaddesby Primary School, Leicestershire

A well presented course very good introduction to all aspects of the game. It was a fun session with loads of practical time - very easy to introduce into schools.
Mo Thayre, Sport Development Manager, Poltair School Sport Partnership

Thanks for the course, got some good positive feedback from the people attending. Things going really well with the disc golf, introduced it to both year groups in KS4 with some positive results. Taking it into another secondary in the partnership later this month.
Stephen Field, PE Teacher, Balby High School, Yorkshire

Very good - excellent activities that could be easily incorporated into the new key stage 3 curriculum, with little equipment required.
Stephen Stokes, PE Teacher, The Coseley School, West Midlands

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for speed of delivery - out of season as well. Chris was a real help getting the discs to us when our stock was running dangerously low! Cheers guys!
Scott Woods - PE Teacher, Basildon Upper Academy

Excellent ideas for skills introduction and development into the full game. Fun and practical involvement to have a go at something totally new.
Rachel Ellicot, PE Teacher, All Hallows Catholic High School, Cheshire

I have just ordered a Frisbee from you. Can I just say what a great service and what a lovely touch to have a personalised comp slip inside, saying have fun. Special. You certainly have "Caught the spirit" Good on you!!!
Robert Crook

I have to say that I have been very impressed with the speed of your service, having made my first order with you on Sunday, which arrived safe and well first thing tuesday morning!
Grant Palmer

Catch The Spirit have been absolutely fantastic in terms of service, help and quality! The Frisbees we ordered literally fly to us within a day or so of ordering and Chris is always prompt in replying to any questions or needs we may have. The Frisbees themselves are easily the best out there, especially the Superdiscs! The colours, size, design and flight of them is perfect for children of all ages and the rubber around the lip of the disc offers added grip and protection for younger year groups. Rather than waste money on cheaper plastic alternatives or buy discs from other suppliers, which are often oversized and solid plastic, FIT4FUN will always return and encourage schools to use Catch The Spirit! Overall great value for money, durable/dynamic discs for all ages and a great service! Highly recommended!
Tom Farrow, Head Coach, Fit4Fun, East Riding of Yorkshire

Excellent course - another sport to offer children who are never selected for the football, rugby, cricket, netball teams. High level of involvement and clear objectives. Looking forward to implementing in the summer term.
Paul Freestone, Sleights CE VC Primary School, North Yorkshire

Very good course that surpassed my expectations. I learned useful skills and was introduced to a new game which we will use back at school.
David Swift, PE and Games Coordinator, Barrowcliff Junior School, North Yorkshire

The Disc Sports inset delivered by Chris and Matt had lots of active participation and served as a very good team building exercise for the department.
Gabriel Mellor, Head of Sport, Huddersfield New College

Fantastic! Great fun, good tips and plenty of new PE ideas to take back to school. It was very hands on so I learned new skills which the children will love learning too!
Lucy Hodges, Class Teacher, Hackforth and Hornby Primary School, Bedale, North Yorkshire

Great course, really enjoyed it. Lots of ideas and resources. Good instruction so we were able to achieve a wide variety of throws.
Cathy Woodroffe, Teacher, Walton School, Somerset

Just to say thank You for all your help and support last Thursday at our Games Festival. We appreciated the fact that you were willing to adapt and assist us in any way you could, and deliver the high quality activities too. All in all it seemed to go well and most importantly the kids really enjoyed it.
Carol Marshall, PE Teacher, Walbottle Campus, Newcatle upon Tyne

I have just received my Fred Risbee Ultra-Star! And might I say, what a great size. I've never had the 175gram and the larger size is exactly what I've been needing to "step it up a gear". I've just been outside with a co-worker (who I wouldn't trust with an orange let alone my shiny new Fred Risbee), and the results are ASTOUNDING. I'll have more of a play tonight in my own back garden, but I'm really impressed so far with the Quality of Service, the Fast Delivery (ordered less than 24 hours ago), Value for Money and it looks really smart. Thanks Chris
Fin Wright

The information was clear, and the processing and dispatch was nice and quick, and you have been attentive with your service. So all in all, thanks!
Patrick, Kent
