Tips for New Players
Ultimate Home Page
Ultimate is a great game to play.
Ultimate combines elements of soccer, football and basketball in a fast-paced
game, played with a frisbee, where everyone is a quarterback and everyone
is a receiver.
There is a group of people at the Roseville site that play a pick-up game MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS and FRIDAYS at noon on the fields near
the pavilion at the Southwest corner of the site.

We welcome anyone, whether you are a beginner or experienced
player. When you come to play please bring a white shirt and
a dark shirt since you may have to play on either team. Also,
if you have a pair of cleats you'll want to wear them.
For those not familiar with the game, it is a highly aerobic,
non-contact sport (less contact than soccer and basket ball), well suited
to co-ed play. Two teams compete to score goals by completing
a pass in the opposing team's endzone. The disc can only be advanced
by completing passes (i.e. you can't run with the disc). The only
thing needed to play the game are a disc and a rectangular field to play
on. The rules are quite simple, making it very easy to learn.
You can find more details about Ultimate, including the simple
rules from the Ultimate Player's
Association. Have a look at these tips
for new players also.

Sign-up To Play
With the great weather we have in Roseville we generally play year-round...
skipping a day only if it is too rainy. However, with our
busy schedules here at HP there are days when can't get a quorum together.
So if you are planning to play on a particular day it is always a good
idea to put your name on the sign-up
page. That way we'll know whether we have enough for a game.
A NOTE ABOUT THE SIGN-UP
PAGE: You should add your name to the form on the day
you plan to play, and before 11am. At 11:05 the form will
send mail to the mailing list announcing whether there is a game on for
the day or not. Each night the form is automatically cleared.
To have your name added to the mailing
list let me know (that is the way you will get confirmation of whether
there is a game on when you sign-up to play).
Ultimate Comes Highly Recommended for Runners
For you runners that are bored with your running routine, but feel like
you just can't skip a day of training, a respected running magazine recommended
Ultimate as an excellent cross-training vehicle since it develops muscles
not normally used in straight-line running, thus helping to avoid injuries.
