Ultimate Frisbee


Ultimate is an exciting, non-contact team sport, that combines the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of 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 has traditionally relied upon a spirit of sportsmanship which places the responsibility for fair play on the player without the use of referees.

Consequently, Ultimate develops acceptance of responsibility for one's own behaviour - enhanced by a strong honour system. Because players make their own calls, participation develops character, self-reliance, listening and negotiating skills along with leadership qualities. 

Many schools and programs also use this fun sport to promote good sportsmanship and help participants develop conflict resolution skills.
Plus many tournaments give awards for the most spirited team, as voted for by all the teams taking part in the tournament.

As teammates spend hours playing together, developing their skills and teaching each other about skills relevant to life, the teams feel like a family and many players find lifelong friends.  Also unique to the sport is the innate friendly dynamic between teammates and opposing teams which is also facilitated by the Spirit of the Game.

Ultimate is played in more than 80 countries by an estimated 7 million men and women, girls and boys.
