Ultimate Frisbee has been around for quite some time now. This American sport arrived on our shores in the early 2000s, and it wasn't long before schools, towns, and cities launched and organized their own tournaments.

The rules of the game are simple. Two teams of seven players battle on a playing field that is roughly the same length as a football field but narrower. At each end of the playing field, there is an end zone. Each team defends one end zone. If one of the players catches the disc in the opposing end zone, they score a goal. Unlike any other sports, Ultimate Frisbee is a non-contact, self-refereed team sport so players are solely responsible for following and enforcing the rules, even at World Championship
