An exciting new sport has been introduced to our area by Ron sir.
He is a certified trainer with UPAI (Ultimate Players Association of India) and is creating several teams in our area. Each team is comprised of 12 players, but only 7 are on the field at one time. And, importantly, this is a “mixed” sport, which means that girls and boys are on the field at the same time in a ratio of either 4:3 or 3:4.
The sport of Ultimate Frisbee focuses greatly on what is called “The Spirit of the Game”, which means that sportsmanship, self-control, fair play, encouraging attitude, and joy are very important factors. Also, there are no referees in this sport, so each player must know all the rules in order to play the game and be self-referring. In fact, each team must have 2 coaches (one male and one female), one of whom is mainly involved in strategy and the other is the “Spirit Coach” which means he/she keeps the team focused on sportsmanship and kindness.
Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of the bond of mutual respect between players (on the same or even opposing side).
Anyone who is interested in playing this sport competitively, please contact Ron sir or any of the current team members. We have official matches coming up with the pro team in Jabalpur, and even beyond that into other states in India.
