Youth Ultimate

 

Our theory of change
Bay Area Disc develops better young athletes and better people by using Ultimate to strengthen physical, social, and emotional development and providing a truly safe, positive, and inclusive sport and a lifetime passion.

Ultimate is an exciting, fast-paced, non-contact team sport played with a disc (or frisbee). Ultimate has unique characteristics like self-officiation and coed play at the highest levels. The Spirit of the Game represents a unique ethos and emphasis on personal responsibility. Ultimate can be used as an educational tool to develop the five Social Emotional Learning (SEL) competencies.

Girls and boys ages 8-18 are invited to come learn and improve their skills in one of the fastest-growing and fun sports on the planet. Ultimate very well could be your next favorite thing to do!

We are committed to facilitate programming in which SAFETY, FUNDAMENTALS, PLAYING TIME, and SPIRIT OF THE GAME are the goals for each player!

Waivers
These two forms are required to participate in all Bay Area Disc events:

PE Teachers? New team?
Ultimate meets and exceeds the standards of what your school curriculum desires from an athletic program:

  1. Educational - based on sportsmanship, respect and conflict resolution skills
  2. Coed - offers equal opportunity for girls and boys
  3. Inexpensive - play anywhere, with minimal equipment
  4. Safe -  non-contact sport and win-at-all-cost behavior are contrary to the Spirit Of The Game
