Ultimate is a fast-paced, non-contact, self-refereed team sport played with a flying disc on a playing surface with end zones.
The key to playing and understanding the sport of Ultimate is Spirit of the Game. Spirit of the Game relies on the mutual respect of all players and coaches. As a self-refereed sport, players are expected to know and adhere to the agreed upon rules. Competitive play is encouraged but not at the expense of fairness or the basic joy of play.
Ultimate combines the non-stop movement of soccer with the aerial passing of football. Play begins when the defense throws or “pulls” the disc to offense. Offense throws the disc to one another in any direction on the field. A thrower cannot run with the disc but can pivot. A team scores one point when a player catches the disc in the end zone they are attacking. When a pass is not completed (goes out of bounds, is dropped, blocked, or intercepted) defense immediately takes possession of the disc and becomes offense.
Head coaches, David “Salsa” Turell, and Yusi Turell have played competitive Ultimate on the national and world stage and coached players from elementary through high school. While Summer Ultimate targets 9- to 13-year olds, 8-year-olds may register after a brief conversation with a league coordinator.
