- What is League?
Ultimate Frisbee League is
a co-ed league offered twice a year by Valley of the Sun Ultimate
Association (VOTS). The goal of league is twofold:
- to introduce new players to the sport of Ultimate
- to provide a place for all levels of players to play in a competitive team-oriented atmosphere
What is Ultimate Frisbee?
Ultimate Frisbee is a high
energy, non-contact team sport. It combines elements of many different
sports including soccer, basketball, and football. Ultimate is played
on a rectangular shaped field with end zones shaped like football end
zones. Each team consists of seven players. The disc is passed from
teammate to teammate until somebody catches the disc in the end zone
for a score.
