Darryl Johnson Capstone
In my Capstone project, I took on the role of operating the Ultimate Frisbee Club at the Science Leadership Academy (SLA). The project aimed at nurturing leadership skills and fostering community building through the medium of ultimate frisbee, a sport that uniquely blends athletic skill with principles of fair play and self-officiation. The process involved conducting comprehensive research on leadership theories, team dynamics, and the technicalities of the sport, informed by expert insights, and community-based organizations. Practical execution encompassed regular training sessions, incorporating both frisbee skills and leadership activities, fostering a learning environment that encouraged communication, collective responsibility, and problem-solving. Through this immersive experience, I enhanced my leadership capabilities and gained valuable insights into organizing and managing a community sports club. Additionally, I discovered the power of sports as an effective tool to teach life skills, promote community engagement, and create a supportive and inclusive environment. The project left a positive impact on the SLA community, inspiring students to engage in physical activity while developing leadership skills.
