WHAT IS UTLIMATE?
Ultimate is a non-contact disc sport played by two teams of seven players. The object of the game is to score goals. Ultimate relies upon a spirit of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the player. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of mutual respect among competitors, adherence to the agreed upon rules, or the basic joy of play.
A game is played until one team first reaches or exceeds the game total, with a margin of at least two goals or until a cap is reached. A standard game has a game total of 15, with a point cap of 17. Halftime begins when one team’s score first reaches or exceeds half of the game total, and lasts ten minutes. Overtime begins when the score is tied at one goal less than the game total.
Ultimate rules can be found HERE on the VPA website.
PRACTICE: Monday through Thursday 3:15 – 4:30, Friday 1:00-2:30
