WHO CAN PLAY?
Anyone, boys and girls! We expect most to have never played before - maybe not even know the rules. Or how to throw a disc. As you keep coming you learn the game and how to throw. We work so hard to be welcoming and inclusive.
The sport lends itself well to being inclusive because it takes EVERYONE to move the disc down the field.
WHO WILL WE PLAY:
We play in the Zig Zag Ultimate league with some school teams and some club teams. So, we might play West Side Christian, then Grandville Middle School, then Forest Hills Ultimate Frisbee Club.

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."
Everyone is welcome regardless of experience! We will teach you how to throw, catch, run, and have fun playing Ultimate.
As you progress through our club, you can play in High School, College, professionally with the Grand Rapids Pro Team, or maybe even represent Team USA!

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!
