Ultimate Australia’s Ulti-Mates program introduces primary school children to the fun, inclusive and growing sport of ultimate frisbee.
Through a unique self-refereed and game based approach to team sport, Ulti-Mates develops and improves communication, fair play and social-emotional learning.
The Ulti-Mates program lessons are aligned to the Australian Curriculum and Physical Literacy Framework.
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.
