What is Ultimate Frisbee?
Ultimate Frisbee is a team sport that is like a cross between netball and American football, played with a flying disc. Teams work together to pass the disc around and try and take a catch in the endzone to score a goal. The sport is non-contact and self referred, so players take responsibility for the safety of themselves, their teammates and their opponents.

I’ve never played before!
That’s ok! We run learn to play sessions where coaches teach you the basic skills and play some mini games with other new players. And the best part is that it’s free to try!
If you’re brand new to ultimate, or have not played any sport lately, we suggest coming to 2 or 3 learn-to-play sessions before joining in the league. But if you’re super keen to give it a go on your first week we’re not going to say no!
What do I wear and what do I need to bring with me?
Wear footy/soccer boots if you have them, otherwise runners or other flat-soled shoes. There are no uniform requirements – wear whatever you are comfortable running around in. Please bring a white shirt and a dark shirt with you as these help us designate the teams. There are change rooms at the venue, but most players just put their white/dark on over the top of whatever else they have on.
Bring a water bottle as you will get thirsty playing! Otherwise we have all the equipment you need to play ready to go.
How much does it cost?
For the first few weeks City West Ultimate is free to play! After that, there will be a small per-week fee to play. There is no ongoing membership or initial registration fee, you just pay each week you can be there! EFTPOS payment is available at the venue.
Do I need to register?
You will need an AFDA (Australian Flying Disc Association) account to be able to take part. This is free to sign up for.
