Men’s ultimate frisbee aims for regionals

Men’s ultimate frisbee aims for regionals

Ultimate frisbee is an unknown sport to many, but it’s one of the fastest growing and most popular sports in the country, especially amongst high school and college students. 

Ultimate is a fast paced game that combines various sports, most notably football and basketball. The objective of the game is to get the disc into the opponent’s end zone (game’s are usually played on a football field). Everytime you reach the opposing team’s endzone you receive a point. Once you catch the disc you can no longer move, much like in basketball, and must pivot and throw the disc up field to your teammates. If the disc is dropped then it’s a turnover and the other team picks it up from there. Games usually go to about 13 or 14 points and last anywhere from 45 to 75 minutes.
