Excited for the big game? Not USA versus Belgium. For Kelvin King Jr., strength and conditioning coach of the DC Breeze — Washington’s pro team in the American Ultimate Disc League — it’s all about this Saturday’s matchup with the New York Empire.

The two teams face off at 7 p.m. at the University of Maryland (2000 Paint Branch Drive, College Park, Md.; $7-$25; the-dcbreeze.com) for the Breeze’s last home game of the season. And King promises spectators will be impressed by the level of play. He certainly has been ever since he was introduced to the sport last year, when the team formed.

“Ultimate is constant movement,” King says. “It mimics sports like football and basketball — there’s a lot of sprinting, change of direction, agility. It takes a lot of hand-eye coordination.”

It also demands flexibility, endurance and proper hydration, which are three things he’s focused on with players this year. That might explain why they’re looking so strong heading into Saturday.
