OUTDOOR ULTIMATE FRISBEE

Outdoor ultimate Frisbee is an excellent social activity that allows you to interact with others and stay in shape in the process. Outdoor Ultimate is perfect for all occasions and can be a great way to get to know your neighbors if you have just moved into a new home or complex. So ditch the tedious introductions and invite your neighbors or new roommate outside for some good ol’ fashion Frisbee fun.

The World of Ultimate Frisbee

There are a number of variations of Ultimate Frisbee as well as a number of rules. However, you do not have to follow the exact science of Ultimate to enjoy it. Ultimate Frisbee is a recognized sport with millions of people competitively playing across America. There are several Ultimate associations across the world including the Ultimate Players Association (UPA), USA Ultimate, the European Flying Disc Federation, the World Flying Disk Federation and the Ottawa-Carlton Ultimate Association. You can play it indoors, outdoors, on the street, on the beach or anywhere else. All you need is a group of people and a Frisbee. So what are you waiting for?

Get Your Game On

Like soccer, hockey and football, the object of the game is to score in the opposing team’s ‘area’ or end zone. Every time you do so, you will get a point. You do this by passing the Frisbee, a flying disc, to players on your own team. You are not allowed to run with the disk; instead, you make headway by passing the disk to each player. If you have the Frisbee, you are allowed to pivot on one foot but cannot take any steps. In addition to the Frisbee, you will also need cones, bottles or anything else to make ‘goals’ or ‘end zones’ as well as ‘pinnies’ or certain colored shirts to identify who is on which team.

In professional Ultimate, games will last until one team reaches 15 points and usually consists of 7 players per team. There are allotted time outs and a ten minute half time. However, when playing outdoor Ultimate Frisbee, you can make your own rules. Play for twenty minutes, thirty minutes, sixty minutes; have a ten minute ‘beer’ break or take a time out for a sandwich; play with five people or ten people per team– whatever you want.

Ultimate Frisbee is a non-contact sport which means there is no need to push, shove, kick, hit or bite your way to the Frisbee. These actions are considered penalties and will not be tolerated. Any inappropriate behavior will result in a foul and the other team will be given the Frisbee.

The Ultimate Social Gathering

If you are looking for a good way to meet your new neighbors, then consider asking them to join in on a game of outdoor Ultimate Frisbee on a spare weekend. Set a time and a venue (preferably a park or grassy area close to home) and bring the Frisbee. You may be surprised how many people show up to play. Furthermore, those that are too little to play or would prefer to watch can set up their chairs and start a cheering squad.

You don’t have to be the best Frisbee thrower or the fastest runner to play Ultimate. You will be surprised how exhilarating this sport can be.You can even add some competition to the game by suggesting the loosing team has to supply the drinks next game or has to take out the winning team’s trash next week. So find a Frisbee, let loose and have some fun this weekend.
