One of the best kids sports to play is ultimate frisbee. Therefore, we have decided to make ultimate frisbee this week's "Sport of The Week". Ultimate frisbee is a fun engaging game that involves elements of football. Since it is a great sport, you know it will be played at Sports Discovery Camp!
- Create a rectangular playing area with end zones at each end. How big the playing area and end zones are will depend on the amount of people that are playing.
- Create two teams, try to have the same amount of players on each team.
- Each point begins with both teams lining up on the front of their respective endzone line. The defence throws the disc to the offence.
- A regulation game has seven players per team, but you can play with as many players as you would like to.
- When the offence completes a pass in the defence’s end zone, the offence scores a point. To start the play back up, the team who just got the point throws the frisbee to the other team.
- The disc may be advanced in any direction by completing a pass to a teammate.
- Players may not run with the disc, they can only take three steps. The person with the disc has ten seconds to throw the it. Whoever is marking the thrower counts out loud the 10 seconds.
- If you have the frisbee and get tagged by the opposing team the play is dead and the other team gets possession of the frisbee.
- When a pass in not completed (e.g. out of bounds, drop, block, interception), the defense immediately takes possession of the disc and becomes the offense.
- No physical contact is allowed between players.
Sports Discovery Camp will teach important ultimate frisbee skills and techniques. The main focus of this game however, is to teach the campers accuracy when throwing the frisbee and the communication skills that is required when working in teams. We will also ensure that campers learn about sportsmanship, respecting their teammates and their opponents!
