Ultimate is played by two seven player squads on a 40x120 yard playing field. Teams advance a disc (Frisbee) by passing from one player to another. While in possession of the disc a player must stop running but may pivot in any direction. A goal is scored when a player catches the disc in an opponent’s end zone. Ultimate combines the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football.
Most importantly, Ultimate stresses sportsmanship and fair play. It is a self officiated game, so players must conduct themselves with a high level of integrity called Spirit of the Game. The concept of Spirit of the Game is written into the rules and is practiced at the highest levels of the sport – from local league play to the World Championships.
