New to Ultimate?

Ultimate Frisbee is a 7-on-7 team sport, similar to soccer, basketball, and football all mashed together. Ultimate is played in more than 80 countries by an estimated 7 million people of all ages. If you're new to the sport, here are some resources that will help you get acquainted. If you've never played before, don't hesitate to join us on Sundays for Pickup!

The Rules

In St. Louis (and in most places around the country) we use the latest edition of the USAU rules. If you're brand new, try reading the 10 Simple Rules for Ultimate Frisbee.

Spirit of the Game

via World Flying Disc Federation 
“All players are responsible for administering and adhering to the rules. Ultimate relies upon a Spirit of the Game that places the responsibility for fair play on every player. It is trusted that no player will intentionally break the rules; thus there are no harsh penalties for breaches, but rather a method for resuming play in a manner which simulates what would most likely have occurred had there been no breach.
Highly competitive play is encouraged, but should never sacrifice the mutual respect between players, adherence to the agreed-upon rules of the game, or the basic joy of play.”

Actions such as intentional fouling, cheating, dangerous plays, disrespectful conversations, and other ‘win at all costs’ behaviour are contrary to the Spirit of the Game. Often a player is in a position where it is to his/her advantage to foul or commit some violation, but that player is morally bound to abide by the rules. The integrity of the sport depends on each player’s responsibility to uphold Spirit of the Game, and this responsibility should not be taken lightly.

As Ultimate is a self-refereed sport, maintaining Spirit of the Game is essential. Players must know the rules, be fair-minded and truthful, explain their viewpoint clearly and briefly, allow opponents a reasonable chance to speak and resolve disputes as quickly as possible, using respectful language.
