"The Ultimate"

Recently we've been making a habit of playing Ultimate Frisbee on Sundays - what a great way to get some exercise and have fun together with friends! If you've never tried it, you should!

How to throw a frisbee:

"Backhand: Grip the edge of the disc so that all your fingers are wrapped around the edge of the disc and your thumb lies along the top of the disc. Extend the throwing arm across your body and swing your arm away from your body, releasing the disc when your arm is about 45 degrees from your body with a snap of the wrist. At the same time, step forward with your right leg; you should complete your step and release the disc at approximately the same time. The power behind your throw should come mostly from wrist motion and partly from the movement of your arm. Make sure the disc stays level while you throw!"


Scoring -- Each time the offense completes a pass in the defense's endzone, the offense scores a point. Play is initiated after each score.
Movement of the Disc -- The disc may be advanced in any direction by completing a pass to a teammate. Players may not run with the disc. The person with the disc ("thrower") has ten seconds to throw the disc. The defender guarding the thrower ("marker") counts out the stall count.
Change of possession -- When a pass in not completed (e.g. out of bounds, drop, block, interception), the defense immediately takes possession of the disc and becomes the offense.
