The beginner's guide to ultimate
What is Ultimate?
Ultimate, also known as Ultimate Frisbee, is a non-contact team sport played with two teams of seven on a rectangular playing field. The goal of the game is to have a member of your team catch the disc in the opponent's end zone.
Ultimate is self-refereed, meaning that players call their own fouls, facilitate discussions with the other team, and resolve calls by themselves. Because of this, there is a huge emphasis on sportsmanship while playing -- all the while still retaining a highly competitive environment -- known within the community as "Spirit of the Game."
We decided to create this website to encourage girlx to join Ultimate because the lack of girlx trying out often leads to a giant gender imbalance in most Ultimate communities. As girlx, sometimes we don’t feel welcomed in the male-dominated Ultimate community.
When we started the sport, we had no idea what to expect. That’s why we created a website to show femxle athletes what to expect when they start Ultimate. Our goal is to give you the courage to try Ultimate and feel confident as you head into your first tryout.
We hope to see you on the field next season!
