Ultimate

Ultimate is a non-contact sport played with a disc (commonly called a Frisbee). Ultimate is an exciting, spectacular team sport where players develop unique athletic prowess in speed, anticipation and impulse. It is common to see a player layout horizontally to catch or block a disc.

 

In the AUDL, a game is divided into four 12-minute quarters with a 15-minute half-time. During the match, two teams competing against each other each have seven (7) players on the field at one time. The offensive team has to move the disc up the field using throws until the disc is caught in the endzone of the opposing team, scoring a point.

 

At the amateur level, ultimate is a self-officiated sport. It is therefore the players’ responsibility to know and respect the rules. This “spirit of the game” aspect of Ultimate has been modified at the professional level, as use of referees has been incorporated to speed up the flow of the game. Nonetheless, sportsmanship remains an essential element of the game and it highly-valued at all levels of the sport. At the amateur level, in important games including international competition, observers can be used. Observers intervene only when players request help.
