  1. 1. AKYSB: Ultimate Frisbee
  2. 2. Spirit of the Game • Ultimate stresses sportsmanship and fair play. Competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of respect between players, adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play.
  3. 3. The Field • A rectangular shape with end zones at each end. A regulation field is 70 yards by 40 yards, with end zones 25 yards deep.
  4. 4. Equipment • Ultimate is one of the least expensive sports to play, as all that’s required for a game is field space and a disc. Most players opt to wear cleats as well, and cones are helpful for marking the boundaries of the playing field. • Discraft 175 gram Ultra Star Sport Disc – Cost as low as $8.13 • http://www.amazon.com/ Discraft-gram-Ultra-Sport- Black/dp/B0014LZVSK
  5. 5. Game Specifics • Number of Players: Teams have only seven players on the field at one time, but may have as many people on their roster as they choose. • Game Length: A typical game is played to 15 points and usually lasts about one and a half hours. • Initiate Play: Each point begins with both teams lining up on the front of their respective end zone line. • Scoring: Each time the offense completes a pass in the defense's end zone, the offense scores a point. Play is initiated after each score.
  6. 6. Game Specifics Contd. • Change of Possession: When a pass is not completed (e.g. out of bounds, drop, block, interception), the defense immediately takes possession of the disc and becomes the offense. • Substitutions: Players not in the game may replace players in the game after a score and during an injury timeout. • Non-contact: No physical contact is allowed between players. Picks and screens are also prohibited. A foul occurs when contact is made.
  7. 7. Game Specifics Contd. • Fouls: When a player initiates contact on another player a foul occurs. When a foul disrupts possession, the play resumes as if the possession was retained. If the player committing the foul disagrees with the foul call, the play is redone. • Self-Officiating: Players are responsible for their own foul and line calls. Players resolve their own disputes.
  8. 8. Potential Modifications • Reduce the size of the field. • Play with few or more players on each team. • Don't let anyone defend the thrower. Allow the player with the disc to throw freely. • Play shorter games to fewer points. • Play for a certain period of time, and see who has the most points when time expires. • Do away with the 10-second counting rule or decrease the time to speed the game up.
