What's Ultimate Frisbee

Describing the sport of Ultimate continues...

Ultimate is a fast-moving team sport that emphasizes athleticism and sportsmanship. It combines the aerial passing skills found in football with the quick transitions from offense to defense found in basketball, all using a high tech plastic disc (frisbee).

[Ultimate is] action-packed, exciting and a lot of fun. It's very camaraderie-based; that's the spirit of the game. Players strive for a high level of competition but still have an appreciation for the other team.

Ultimate combines several aspects of other sports and has become a good fit for some athletes who want to remain competitive but in a different sport than they previously played....Ultimate utilizes basketball skills like cutting in order for players to get open, while also engaging soccer skills like moving without the ball or Frisbee and using intricate passing plays to set up scoring chances. Each team has seven players on the field at one time.

Ultimate Frisbee is a limited-contact team sport, where players pass a Frisbee to each other in an attempt to score points in opposing end zones. Players can't take steps while in possession of the disc. ...a mix of soccer, American football, netball and basketball. Unlike virtually any other sport, it is self-refereed even at the highest levels.
