Ultimate Frisbee

An active team-building wide sports game

How To Play Ultimate Frisbee

Materials Needed


Divide the group into 2 teams.

Create a playing field with 2 "end zones" which are essentially rectangles marked out with 4 cones on each end.

The aim of the game is to get someone from your team to catch the frisbee in the end zone.

To start off the game, each team stands at their end zone and one team throws the frisbee all the way across the field to the other team. They can let the frisbee land and start playing straight away from there, or they can catch it and play on - however if they drop it, the other team gets to take possesion.

When you have the frisbee you can pivot, but can't take any steps. If you throw it to someone and it hits the ground in any way, even if the other team hits it out of the air, then possesion swaps to the other team.

To defend, a player may stand in front of the person with the frisbee and obstruct their throwing path, but cannot physically touch them. The defender can start counting to 10 and if they reach it and the attacker hasn't thrown the frisbee yet then possesion swaps.

This was a really fun active game. When playing make sure everyone joins in or it won't be as fun.
