What is Ultimate?
Ultimate Frisbee is an exciting, non-contact team sport, played by thousands the world over. It mixes the best features of sports such as Soccer, Basketball, American Football and Netball into an elegantly simple yet fascinating and demanding game. To compete at the top level, Ultimate Frisbee players require an unmatched degree of speed, stamina, and agility. Yet the simplicity of the rules means it’s easy and fun for newcomers to pick up.
Ultimate Frisbee is played between two teams of seven players on a large rectangular pitch. A line drawn across the pitch at either end creates two “endzones”. These are the goal-scoring areas. A goal is scored when a team completes a pass to a player standing in the end zone they are attacking.
Players cannot run with the disc. When you get the disc you must come to a stop and try to throw it to another player. By passing from player to player, the offense attempts to work the disc up the pitch towards the end zone they are attacking. If the disc hits the ground or is intercepted or knocked down by the other team, then the opposition takes possession. Possession also changes if a receiver is outside the playing area when he or she catches it.
The defending team attempts to stop the team with the disc from making progress upfield by marking them. The theory is that the offense won’t want to pass to a player who is being marked closely, as it’s likely to result in an interception. So it boils down to the offensive players trying to get free of their markers to receive a pass, while the defense makes every effort to stay with them in the hope of forcing a turnover
