Its a really fun game, that can basically be played anywhere there is a large opening of a grass. Here is the official site LINK (http://www.upa.org/)


Combining the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football, a game of Ultimate is played by two seven-player squads with a high-tech plastic disc on a field similar to football. The object of the game is to score by catching a pass in the opponent’s end zone. A player must stop running while in possession of the disc, but may pivot and pass to any of the other receivers on the field. Ultimate is a transition game in which players move quickly from offense to defense on turnovers that occur with a dropped pass, an interception, a pass out of bounds, or when a player is caught holding the disc for more than ten seconds. Ultimate is governed by Spirit of the Game™, a tradition of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the players rather than referees. Ultimate is played in more than 42 countries by hundreds of thousands of men and women, girls and boys.

Here are some simplified Rules LINK (http://www.upa.org/ultimate/rules/10simplerules)


I know it sounds a little dorky but it really is a great game. You have some really amazing grabs because the frisibe floats.

I play for my school team. People call it a "sissy" sport, but it really takes a lot of skill and you have to be able to sprint up and down the 70m field forever basically.

I was on a team that competed in an Ultimate Frisbee tournament to raise money for cancer research. Like usual, we were victorious, thanks to my leadership, and a diving grab for the win!

:bow:

But it really is an awesome sport.
