Torneo Cocibolca 2016

Torneo Cocibolca brought people together from all over Nicaragua and all walks of life. There were players with 20 years of playing experience and players with not even 20 minutes. There were people who could apply for a senior discount and others who are navigating middle school. There were people who had never played a mixed gender sport before or never played sports at all. There were people that had money and people that had no money. Ultimate is such a unique tool for many things, but here in Nicaragua it is bringing people together in a way that nothing else does. 

I had such a great time and really learned so much from the youngins. This was an awesome experience and I can’t wait for next year.
— Paraphrased from Christopher Shanks (Project Bona Fide and Aqua Wellness Resort)
Este fue la mejor experiencia de mi vida.
— Julio Zapata (15 yrs old)

We created 5 teams from almost 80 people and were so happy to have such a strong showing from the women. Almost 30% of those who played were women! After a long and hot day Team Maderas defeated Team Masaya by just 1 point to become the first ever Torneo Cocibolca Champions! 

Final Standings:

  1. Team Maderas
  2. Team Masaya
  3. Team Mombacho
  4. Team Concepcion
  5. Team Momotombo

Torneo Cocibolca was the first ever Ultimate Frisbee tournament hosted in Granada at the Cocibolca Jockey Club! After an entire day of playing, learning, making friends, and enjoying the pool with some Kiss Me ice cream we can say that it was a huge success.

We are very excited to make it an even bigger and better event next year. We hope you will join us from all over the world and get to know our beautiful country! 

We are so thankful to our Partners and Sponsors for making this event possible! The event would not be possible without them! An extra special thank you to the Cocibolca Jockey Club for hosting the event! You can check them out below!
