What is Ultimate Frisbee?

Have you ever heard of Ultimate Frisbee? I can assume that most of you have never heard of it, but gradually its popularity is growing. The unsteady flow of the frisbee and various dynamic plays caught my attention. It brings home the fact that I have been playing it for five years, both in Canada and my native Japan. As one of many ultimate frisbee enthusiasts, I’d like to introduce you to the sport of ultimate frisbee and all the possibilities it offers. 

Ultimate Frisbee is a fast-paced, non-contact team sport played with a flying disc. The game’s objective is to score points by catching the disc in the opposing end zone. The game is played on a rectangular field with two end zones, like American football. Players are not allowed to run with a Frisbee. If the person holding the disc wants to move, they must throw it. As a result, it generates new forward movements to carry the disc to the end zone. 

The most compelling reason why I love this sport is that it is truly self-officiated. The players are responsible for making their calls and judging fouls. A common theme that is heard within this sport is the “Spirit of the Game”. Players are expected to play fairly and respect both teammates and opponents. Also, to truly enjoy the experience of ultimate frisbee, a positive environment is desired. For instance, if somebody does not fully understand a part of the rules, others must explain it with great sportsmanship.

I have a wonderful community that I can call my second family when I play ultimate frisbee.

Play if you get the chance and take pleasure in the experience!
