Ultimate Frisbee Club

 

Join the first year of our club! We play in a league with...
 

Lowell High School + Rockford High School +

We believe Ultimate Frisbee is the best sport in the world. All skill levels welcome. We will teach you how to play - or come really good. We work hard to be inclusive and welcoming. Can't throw a frisbee? That's ok! We teach hundreds every year! Never forgetting our our main goal of having FUN above all else.

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 into the basic philosophy of the sport, it is written into 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. Davenport University offers scholarship to play! One day, some of our players may play professionally for the Detroit Mechanix or even for Team USA!
