My friends and I have gotten into the habit of playing Ultimate Frisbee every Saturday afternoon. It's really a lot of fun, we usually play for about 3 hours and as we get better, we've been putting more strategy into the games and trying to design different plays even. I really can't believe it's not more popular than it is right now, because it's definitely one of my favorite things to play, and that's coming from an avid sports fan!
I remember we had to play it in PE one year, it was quite fun...never knew it was so big of a sport though.
Must be what I get for being american. xD
Yeah, Ultimate Frisbee I believe is played in most public schools in the US as a recreational activity for P.E. I haven't played it for awhile since I moved into an ROP class which allows me to not take P.E. Thank you engineering! ^^ But anyways, it is a fun sport to play, whether it is with friends or against other teams.
Heyyy. Ultimate frisbee is the best ever dude. I love it when they throw that frisbee and just catch it...its awesome. Running up and down the field (depencing on the size of the field) can be a great work out and most people sweat, sometimes even the goalie. Its sooo fun to just grab that frisbee and launch it down the field and hope your team or even your goalie. I havent been able to watch the actual sport yet, due to ist rarity on tv, but i play often and love the sport.
I've never played it, but have seen many people practicing and some of them are dalm good - bouncing the frizby of the groud and stuff - looks good
Boy, ultimate frisbee sure brings back some memories from college. I used to love to play, but no one that I know now has any clue what it is or how to play!
Frisbee golf > Ultimate frisbee. I am sorry, but it is true. What other organized games can you play with a frisbee?
Freestyle discing isn't technically a sport, but it can be competitive, I suppose. Other than that, I can't really think of any. Variations on Ultimate Frisbee like box drills (3v3 to the same effect of half-court basketball) aren't really sports on their own.
I have to say that if there is one thing that is hurting the reputation of ultimate frisbee, surprising as it sounds, is the inclusion of the game in PE classes. I am a member of a very competitive high-school team and have also played it in PE and can honestly say that the only similarity between the two is the name. It has become mockingly called Gymby, for the sheer rediculousness of the situation. People play it and assume that gymbie is all there is to the sport, where in frisbee more so than almost any other sport I can think of, that is certainly not the case.
Ive been playing ultimate for like 5 years, and where i live we have a summer league wheres theres like 8 teams from around the state who come and play together from sponsored businesses. This year my team won 'Powered By Jesus' is the team name actually.
