“When a ball dreams, it dreams it’s a frisbee.”
Ultimate Australia introduces students to the fun, inclusive and growing sport of ultimate frisbee through two introductory programs:
- Ulti-Mates for primary students, and
- Fly for secondary students
Through a unique self-refereed and game-based approach to team sport, Ulti-Mates and Fly develop and improve communication, fair play and social-emotional learning.
Both Ulti-Mates and Fly programs are aligned to the Australian Curriculum and Physical Literacy Framework.
Primary school program
Ultimate Australia’s Ulti-Mates program develops the skills and confidence for children to get involved in Ultimate Frisbee.
Ulti-Mates consists of many fun activities, games and lessons that cater to two key age groups:
- Foundation to Year 2
- Year 3 to Year 6
Through modified games, Ulti-Mates introduces students to movement skills including throwing and catching a frisbee. Students will also develop a strong foundation in teamwork and fair play skills through an introduction to Ultimate Frisbee’s unique ‘Spirit of the Game’ concept.
Secondary school program
Ultimate Australia’s Fly program uses a game-based approach to introduce Year 7 and 8 students to the fun and emerging team sport of Ultimate Frisbee. Learning to throw and catch a frisbee captivates students from the start of the Fly program.
Students will enjoy developing their leadership and conflict resolution skills as they implement self-refereeing and spirit of the game into their game play. Regardless of current physical abilities, using a frisbee instead of a ball can level the playing field among your class, providing an opportunity for different students to excel as everyone develops new skills.
Ulti-Mates equipment packs feature junior discs made from memory-plastic. These junior discs are soft and flexible, making them safe for primary school students. They are smaller and lighter and they fly beautifully. Using the right disc significantly increases the enjoyment and success that your students will experience in the program.
