A game played with a disc and seven players per team on the field at a time. Object is to score by catching the disc in the correct endzone. Games are usually played to 13 or 15 unless a time cap is put on. Players cannot run with the disc, it must be worked up the field, generally by "handlers" passing to "cutters". A very athletic sport that demands running comparable to soccer or football.
Started on the East Coast in the late 1960s and is now played at a national level. Is run by the "Spirit of the Game"TM. Games can be as unorganized as pickup games with friends or they can be organized by clubs, leagues, schools, or the Ultimate Player's Association(UPA).

Best game ever played. Common among collage students and hippies. Equipment includes frisbee disc, and a field where a disc may be thrown. 7 players per team each one with an endzone. One team tries to throw the frisbee down the field and catch it in the opposing teams endzone. Main rule: no running with the disc. Ultimate Frisbee is a self regulated self officiated game, there are no refs, all part of spirit of the game. Players judge themselves and all have a good attitude.
person 1: lets go play ultimate frisbee,
person 2: Ok! there is a pick up game at the local collage.
person 3: don't forget your sandals.

Outstanding game. Good fun among men and women of all ages.

The sport is sort of like a combination of football, rugby, and handball. Each team is allowed seven players on the field at a time. The game begins with the defense performing a "kickoff" by throwing the Frisbee to the offense. The offense retrieves the disk and begins their trek down the field. The teams can score one point by completing a successful pass into the other end zone.

The player who is in possession of the disk cannot move and can only pivot and throw. Turn overs occur after a score or failed pass. Defensive players are permitted to block and intercept passes. A foul occurs when any contact is made between a defensive player and an offensive player.

There are many different types of throws to be used in Ultimate Frisbee. The major ones include:backhand, forehand/flick, hammer, push pass, roller, scuber, wheeler, and many more. I won't go into how to perform each throw but the internet is a great source to learn any of these.

The two major ultimate Frisbee leagues are Major League Ultimate (MLU) and American Ultimate Disk League (AUDL). AUDL has 25 teams, while MLU is a smaller league with only 8 teams. (The Philadelphia Spinners are part of the MLU.)

Some Ultimate enthusiasts speculate that the sport has a good chance of entering the Olympics within the next decade. It is one of the fastest growing sports of all time.

Its a great sport to try out and get you up and running.
Person 1: What sports can we play? We've gotten tired of all the generic sports.
Person 2: If you want, I can call some guys over to play some Ultimate Frisbee?
Person 1: That's a great idea! I'll go grab the Frisbee!
