Keys to Success

Being successful at Ultimate Frisbee requires skill, cooperation, endurance, and a good attitude. Below, Chris has provided a few tips of his own.

Chris cheers while catching the disc.

"Play defense offensively." Often, the best plays of the game are defensive ones, which can change the momentum of the game in fractions of a second. Rather than knocking the disc down, try intercepting it to make a quick turnover, and hopefully a point.

"Don't give up on a play." To many Ultimate players, the most annoying thing a passer can do is launch the disc down field and hope for the best when no receivers are open. "Always look for an opening," he says. "A good attempt is better than a shot in the dark."

The most important key to success, of course, is to have fun!
