Ultimate Frisbee is the perfect sport to get your students excited about physical education. Made official by UK Sport in 2008, it’s a mixed, non-contact team sport. The rules are simple and the set-up and tidying away is quick and easy.

Unlike some other sports, Ultimate Frisbee games don’t require a referee, so you can run multiple matches at once. The unique spirit of the game adds a fantastic cross-curricular PSHE dynamic to the activity.
