Ultimate 101 Clinics

The HAWAII ULTIMATE LEAGUE ASSOCIATION holds FREE monthly clinics the first Saturday of every month where you can learn how to play ULTIMATE FRISBEE.  Ultimate Frisbee is one of the fastest growing, non-contact sports in the nation and combines camaraderie, sportsmanship, a serious cardio workout and tons of fun in an insanely entertaining game.  Never thrown a disc in your life, you say?  Not to worry, we’ll teach you!  A casual pickup game will follow the clinic where you can practice what you’ve learned.

The Ultimate 101 Clinic is usually 1.5 hours long.  In that time, you’ll learn the following:

  • Basic Rules and Spirit of the Game
  • How to catch a disc
  • Backhand technique
  • Forehand technique
  • Stall Count (and marking)
  • Forcing
  • Pivoting (and faking)
  • How to play defense
  • How to cut on offense
  • Basic Horizontal and Vertical Offense

When we’re through with you, you’ll be well-equipped to play a solid game of pickup ultimate!
