Ultimate is a non-contact team sport played with a flying disc (Frisbee)

During a game, the basic aim is for the team with the disc to pass it up the field to others on their team and complete a pass into the endzone. At the same time the defensive team is trying to intercept it or knock it down. If they succeed, they get possession of the disc and are trying to score in the other endzone.

Ultimate is played on a grass field, narrower than a soccer field. Teams play with seven players on the field each, plus substitutes.

Ultimate relies upon a Spirit of the Game that places the responsibility for fair play on every player. Players on the field make their own calls when violations occur - there are no referees. If there is disagreement regarding an incident, the disc returns to the player who made the last pass and the game resumes. The Spirit of the Game award is a highly coveted award at tournaments.

Ultimate is recognised by Sport Australia and the International Olympic Committee
