He has played in more than 15 teams across the world, and has captained / coached more than 6 teams including Ahmedabad DC and Chennai Airborne.

Jaidip has been interested in helping Surat Ultimate for quite some time and with SUO in mind we thought the previous weekend would be a great time to learn Ultimate from him.

Timings: 7:30 am to 6:30 p.m. with 6 hours of on-ground training, 2 hours of classroom teaching (theory, videos etc.); Sunday we will end earlier at around 4 p.m. The exact schedule will be sent after registrations are done.

Purpose: to work on skills and game strategies especially with the SUO in mind

Transport will be provided from nearby stops depending on the registrations. Lunch will be provided. Unlimited bananas will also be available.

All those interested in playing SUO 2014 should surely register for this (unless are you out of town on those dates, in which case you can even come for 1/2 days instead of 3).

It’s time to crack the ‘Secret Code’!

It’s time to crack the ‘Secret Code’!

The learners were provided with worksheet of “Secret code” and “The first logic puzzle”

Learners had to break up the code using the information given . They had to search each coded letter on the shaded bottom row , and read up to break the code.After decoding they had got the different names of books as their final answers.

For the first logic puzzle , there were three different robots Rone , Dack and Zumm with pictures given in the worksheet. There were only three food items given in the form of picture ( metal chip cookies , Oil and crunchy cogs) with one condition to feed only one food item to one robot. Two clues were given in the form of a sentence and the students were asked to put a tick or a cross on the option selected.

These kind of  worksheets were given as a fun activity for kids as well as a way to help them develop analytical and logical thinking skills. Learners enjoyed  decoding the secret messages, and they wanted  to invent codes of their own for writing small sentences for their friends , teachers or  any family members.
