Welcome to our guide to ultimate frisbee for beginners!
Ultimate is a team sport played with a flying disc. It is played on a rectangular field, with an end zone at each end. The objective of each team is to score a goal by having a player catch a pass in the end zone that they are attacking. A thrower may not run with the disc, but may pass the disc in any direction to any team-mate. Any time a pass is incomplete, a turnover occurs, and the other team shall take possession and attempt to score in the opposite end zone. Ultimate is self-refereed and non-contact. The ‘Spirit of the Game’ guides how players referee the game and conduct themselves on the field; our guide to Self-refereeing & Spirit of the Game will give you a good overview.
