Ultra Frisbee is an exciting, non-contact team sport, played by thousands the world over. It mixes the best features of sports such as Soccer, Basketball, American Football and Netball into an elegantly simple yet fascinating and demanding game.
As even the briefest exposure to the game demonstrates, running, throwing, and catching are the key physical skills that make a good player. An understanding of strategy and positioning are the most important mental aspects of the game.
Both sides of the game can be learned easily with practice. The best way to gain those skills is through exposure to the game. Taking the opportunity to join pick-up games often means getting to play with some experienced players. Some cities will even offer skills clinics which is an invaluable way to receive top-notch coaching.
Ultra Frisbee combines the continuous play of soccer with the rapid direction changes of basketball and the aerial passes of football. The big difference is that Ultra Frisbee is a non-contact sport.
Participating is easy and all you need is workout clothing, a pair of good running shoes or cross-trainers, and of course, a Frisbee.
