What is Ultimate?

Ultimate is not frisbee golf!

Ultimate is not what you play with your dog.

Ultimate is a team sport played with a flying disc. The object of the game is to score points by passing the disc to a player in the opposing end zone, similar to football. Players may not run with the disc, and must keep a pivot while holding the disc.

In 2008, there were 4.9 million Ultimate players in the US.  This beats out Lacrosse (1.8 million), and is just under Ice Hockey in active players.

Ultimate is one of the few "complete" games.  It requires a person to play both offense and defense, and to make all of the calls on the field.

Ultimate players must understand and enforce all of the rules of the game.  There are no referees, and people on the sidelines can not make calls for anything that has happened on the field.

A copy of the rules can be found here: http://www.usaultimate.org/resources/officiating/rules/11th_edition_rules.aspx

Ultimate? I Thought It Was Called Ultimate Frisbee.

It was originally called ultimate frisbee, but it is now officially called ultimate. This is because Wham-O has trademarked the name Frisbee, creating certain legal issues when calling it "ultimate frisbee".

We use Discraft Ultra Star 175 gram discs.  http://www.discraft.com/ultimate.html

Ultiamte Field

This is an Ultimate field. It is very similar to the size of a soccer field in length and width, being a mere 5 meters longer.
