Women's Ultimate Frisbee
The UW-L Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Team!
What is Ultimate Frisbee?
The sport of Ultimate is a game of agility, skill, speed, and luck. It is a sport, which combines the best elements of soccer, basketball, and American football into one very intense experience. Here's what USA Ultimate has to say about the sport, "Combining the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football, a game of Ultimate is played by two seven-player squads with a high-tech plastic disc on a field similar to football. The object of the game is to score by catching a pass in the opponent’s end zone. A player must stop running while in possession of the disc, but may pivot and pass to any of the other receivers on the field. Ultimate is a transition game in which players move quickly from offense to defense on turnovers that occur with a dropped pass, an interception, a pass out of bounds, or when a player is caught holding the disc for more than ten seconds. Ultimate is governed by Spirit of the Game™, a tradition of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the players rather than referees. Ultimate is played in more than 42 countries by hundreds of thousands of men and women, girls and boys."
