E.R.I.C. Speak Up Tour 2016-2017

The Early Recognition Is Critical (E.R.I.C.) school clinic begins its 22-city tour today in Dallas, home of the Roughnecks. Last week, Beau Kittredge announced the tour last week which is meant to:
  • Teach youth to be healthy, active and aware of their bodies
  • Educates youth on cancer symptoms in non-scary way
  • Learn a new fun, non-contact sport and the importance of Spirit of the Game
  • Teach them to speak up and call their own fouls (because ultimate at that age doesn't and shouldn't have referees, which helps them understand the incredible important skill of conflict resolution)
  • Apply what they learned to life, respect and help others and to SPEAK UP when something feels wrong

Not cited in the E.R.I.C. tour details is the overlap with AUDL cities. According to the list of Am-E.R.I.C-an tour locations, the clinic plans to visit American Ultimate Disc League cities. Though, the map shows 20+ locations including 3 stops in North Carolina while there are just Charlotte and Raleigh  AUDL teams. E.R.I.C. and the AUDL have a partnership that was announced in November 2014.
