HISTORY OF FLYING DISC
Flying Disc has one discipline offered in The World Games: Ultimate.
Ultimate is a non-contact, self-refereed team sport played with a flying disc (or Frisbee™). Two teams of seven players compete on a playing field roughly the same length as a football field, but narrower. At each end of the playing field there is an end zone. Each team defends one end zone. A goal is scored if a player catches a disc in the opposite end zone. The player holding the disc cannot move, but only one foot must be stationary. Stretching and kneeling with the other foot is allowed. A team can advance the disc to the opposing end zone with any number of passes, including one long throw to the end zone. If a pass is incomplete (not caught before touching the ground), caught out of bounds, caught by a defending player or knocked out of the air by the defense, it is a turnover and the opposing team immediately gains possession, playing to score in the opposite direction. Defenders cannot take the disc from an offensive player who has secured a catch. Contact is also not allowed for the defender marking the offense player with the disc, and they must allow the offense player a specified amount of space.
