Frisbee Club

Frisbee is an activity that involves throwing a disc back and forth up a field. Movement Park play this fun family activity.

Ultimate Frisbee, or Ultimate for short, is a sport that involves two teams of seven throwing a disc back and forth up a field toward the end zone in order to score.

History
Ultimate has an interesting history as the original flying disc was actually a pie plate from the Frisbie Pie Company. In 1957, Wham-O toy company rolled out the plastic version of the flying disc. The sport of Ultimate was created in 1968 by Joel Silver, the Hollywood movie producer, at Columbia High School in Maplewood New Jersey, USA

How to play

At Movement Park there are no rules its all about good old fashioned fun and engaging the family.


Ultimate Frisbee is a non-contact, organised sport played by opposing teams of seven players each and is somewhat like football. The goal is to be the first team to score 15 points and there is no time-limit to the game.

Frisbee golf can be played with many people and is similar to golf in that throwers try to navigate a series of ‘holes’ in consecutive order and the one with the least number of throws wins.

As a variation, just grab a disc and one or more people and simply throw the disc back and forth. 

Suggested equipment
- Frisbee(s)
- Comfortable clothing
- Cleats (for Ultimate)
- Pylons to mark Ultimate field
- Multi, different sized and weighted discs for Frisbee golf                                                  
Adaptations

Movement Park includes everyone, regardless of any ability or circumstance. Some sports and activities may, however, require a few adaptations to make them as accessible as possible. Below you’ll find recommendations and suggestions on how to accommodate individuals that may have limitations or different needs. With a positive attitude and a little ingenuity, any activity can be made enjoyable for all.

Sensory

For individuals with visual impairments we make sure to have a brightly coloured disc. There are several sizes and designs of discs. We can choose one that will lead to success. We make the target larger and brightly coloured. Clearly define boundaries. Remove obstacles. Play in pairs or use auditory cues.

Learning/Cognitive Disabilities

Recreational Frisbee has no rules so be creative. We will maybe start with a larger softer disc and shorten the throwing distance. 

Mobility Limitation

Movement Park modify this activity to use larger discs, shorten the distance to the target, use a larger target, and play in pairs. This activity can be done seated or standing and a variation can be played indoors or outdoors.
