Ultimate (Frisbee) is a unique sport that fosters many traditional fundamental motor skills as well as requiring new disc-specific skills. The game itself develops many fundamental motor skills such as running, leaping and vertical jumps. Ultimate also develops hand-eye coordination and catching skills as well as the unique forehand, backhand and overhead throwing skills needed to propel the disc. These new skills are easy and fun to learn.
Ultimate also provides a unique approach to officiating, allowing the players themselves to resolve disputes. The Spirit of the Game (SOTG) is the governing rule of the sport that trusts players to play within the rules in an honest and friendly yet competitive environment. SOTG allows players many opportunities for leadership as well as situations for players to practice conflict resolution that can easily be transferred to other areas of life. SOTG is best defined as: Play hard; play fair.
In a time when sedentary children are often considered the norm, Ultimate can inspire participants to continue playing this and other alternative sports. The fast-paced game of Ultimate is a fantastic cardio workout with many new skills to master to ensure the game is always entertaining.
