The USC offers Ultimate Frisbee in cooperation with NUTS. Do you ever play frisbee in the park with your friends, and do you like the idea of doing it as a team? Have you ever heard of Ultimate Frisbee and are you curious about how it works? Then you will definitely like Ultimate Frisbee!
Ultimate Frisbee is a challenging and fun sport which is played in mixed teams of seven people. Like in American Football, the field has two endzones which are used to score. Unlike American Football, it is not allowed to have physical contact between players nor can you walk with the disc. Points are scored by catching the disc in the opponent’s endzone.
One of the most distinguishing characteristics of Ultimate Frisbee is that there are no referees present during games, even on a very high level. The idea behind this is that the players are considered to be a good enough sportsmen to solve any problems that may occur when a foul is committed.
The spirit is always important in Ultimate and can be described as love for the game, respect for the opponent, and especially enjoying yourself on the field without any brawls and fouls.
Do you want to check out ultimate frisbee, or learn the basics of the sport? You can join the beginners course with NUTS. You’ll learn different throwing techniques and the rules and tactics of the game. Everyone can participate.
