Why play Ultimate?

WHY PLAY ULTIMATE?

HERE’S 5 GOOD REASONS!

  1. Non-contact – as a non-contact sport it is a great, safe sport for students of all ages, sizes and abilities.
  2. Self-refereed – the self-refereeing aspect of Ultimate encourages a mature response to competitive situations.
  3. Skill Acquisition – the task of throwing a frisbee accurately and catching it successfully is great for the development of hand-eye co-ordination.
  4. Fun – we regularly find that students who wouldn’t usually get involved in PE really take an interest in Ultimate.
  5. Co-ed – Ultimate is most commonly played with both men and women. Most leagues in Australia are Mixed!

Ultimate is a unique sport that fosters many traditional fundamental motor skills, as well as requiring new frisbee specific skills. The game itself develops many fundamental motor skills such as running, leaping and the vertical jump. Ultimate also develops hand-eye co-ordination and catching skills as well as the unique forehand, backhand and overhead throwing skills needed to propel the disc. These new skills are easy and fun to learn and many of the movements can be adapted from other sports.

SPIRIT OF THE GAME

Ultimate also provides a unique approach to officiating, allowing the players themselves to resolve disputes. The Spirit of the Game (SOTG) is the governing rule of the sport that trusts players to play within the rules in an honest and friendly-yet-competitive environment. SOTG allows players many opportunities for leadership as well as situations for players to practice conflict resolution that can easily be transferred to other areas of life. SOTG is best defined as: Play hard; play fair. In a time when sedentary children are often considered the norm, Ultimate can inspire participants to continue playing this and other alternative sports. The fast-paced game of Ultimate is a fantastic cardio workout with many new skills to master. This ensures the game is always entertaining. Simply playing throw and catch has many health benefits as you chase and jump attempting to make a catch.

Staff PD sessions

STAFF PD SESSIONS

We’ve found that the best way to get ultimate into schools is by training the PE Staff. As a result, we aim to run Staff PD sessions at least once a term.

INTERSCHOOL COMPETITIONS

If your school sports district is interested in including Ultimate Frisbee as a weekly sport, or running Ultimate Frisbee during your Inter-School sports days, please get in touch with Ultimate Victoria. We could support your regional sports days by running some introductory skills, creating a draw and also helping convene the day.
