WHAT PARENTS SAY:

  • "This is the first sport my son actually enjoys. We wouldn't let him play football after he got injured."

  • "I like it because my 4th grade son, 7th grade daughter, and 8th grade son can all play at the same time. ONE car trip!"

  • "I was hesitant about the fact that there are no refs, but after the first game I'm surprised at how well it works. They actually talk about disagreements to each other instead of needing a ref." 

  • "I appreciate that I don't have to worry about concussions like when he was doing football. I also love knowing my son will always get a good workout in every single practice and game."

WHAT IS ULTIMATE FRISBEE:

Combining the nonstop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football, a game of Ultimate Frisbee is played two seven-player teams on a field similar to football. The object of the game is to score  points 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. 
 

Just like basketball, Ultimate Frisbee 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. Although, Ultimate Frisbee resembles many traditional sports in its basic athletic  requirements, the rules are simpler, which allows the game to be self officiated. The concept of Spirit of the Game is integrated in to the basic philosophy of the sport, it is written in to the rules and is practiced at all levels of the games from local leagues to the World games. 

Several local colleges have teams including GVSU, MSU, Cornerstone, Ferris State, and Calvin College. One day, some of our players may play professionally for the Detroit Mechanix or even for Team USA!
