Ultimate Frisbee

Rating: 12+

Ultimate Frisbee is played on a field with end zones. A field is usually 70 by 40 yards. End zones are 25 yards into the field. Teams are composed of seven players. The game is started with players lined up at their respective end zones. The defense throws the Frisbee to the offensive team. Offensive players score points by completing passes in the end zone of the other team.

Players must not run with the disk and must throw it within ten seconds of gaining possession. If the pass is not completed, the other team gains possession. Defensive players attempt to block or intercept passes. Players are not allowed to touch one another. Intentional physical contact between players results in a foul. Games are usually played to 9 points or for forty-five minutes. A team must win by 2 points.

Are there any other games that people play with a Frisbee?

Another fun game is Frisbee golf. It is played on a course of nine or eighteen “holes.” Players divide into groups of up to four. Groups start at different holes—for example, group 1 starts at hole 1, group 2 at hole 2, and so on. Players attempt to throw the Frisbee into the “hole,” which is a basket. The basket and “tee” are usually about 200 feet apart. The number of throws it takes to get the Frisbee in the basket is counted. The player with the fewest accumulated throws at the end of the round wins.
