What is Ultimate?
Although ultimate resembles many traditional sports in its athletic requirements, it is unlike most sports due to its focus on self-officiating, even at the highest levels of competition. This concept, called Spirit of the Game, is integrated into the basic philosophy of the sport, written into the rules, and practiced at all levels of the game from local leagues to the World Games.
Combining the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football, a game of ultimate is played by two teams with a flying disc on a field with end zones, similar to football. The object of the game is to score by catching a pass in the opponent’s end zone. A player must stop running while in possession of the disc, but may pivot and pass to any of the other receivers on the field. Ultimate is a transition game in which players move quickly from offense to defense on turnovers that occur with a dropped pass, an interception, a pass out of bounds, or when a player is caught holding the disc for more than ten seconds. Ultimate is governed by Spirit of the Game™, a tradition of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the players rather than referees. Ultimate is played in more than 80 countries by an estimated 7 million men and women, girls and boys.

C.H.A.M.P. Camp Ultimate is a two-day frisbee camp that strives to instill our founding core principles in each of our campers: Character, Heart, Attitude, Motivation, and Pride. Through the teaching of frisbee fundamentals (catching, backhand, forehand, marking, pivoting/faking, downfield defense, cutting, and force) and guest speakers, we set campers up for success both on and off the field. Although all players are welcome, we especially encourage female athletes to attend. All skill levels, including players who have never played, are welcome to attend. Campers will learn fundamental skills and compete in a fun learning environment. Registration if FREE if campers sign up by the May 22nd deadline!
