What is ultimate?
Since its creation in the late 60s, ultimate has gained worldwide recognition as a fast-paced, low-cost sport that emphasizes sportsmanship through Spirit of the Game. It’s easy to learn, requires little equipment and can easily be played in any open space.
The basic skills of the game – throwing, catching, running and jumping – make for an easy transition for athletes from other sports, both team and individual.
Ultimate is a self-refereed sport with the onus on each player to ensure that other players and themselves are acting within the rules and abiding by the ideals of fair play and Spirit of the Game. It’s built on the understanding of respect for all players on the field and that fair play is essential in creating an enjoyable playing experience.
What is Ultimate Newfoundland and Labrador (Ultimate NL)?
