Additional Description: Ultimate Frisbee combines 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, and interception, a pass out of bounds, or when a player is caught holding the disc for more than ten seconds. Ultimate is governed by the Spirit of the Game, a tradition of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the players rather than referees.
