Our mission is to pass on skills and values to kids that will transcend the field, such as sportspersonship, personal accountability, and open-mindedness, through the Sport and Spirit of Ultimate Frisbee. We are making better human beings one frisbee at a time.
Elevate Ultimate is an award-winning company and the leader in Ultimate Frisbee programs for kids aged 6 – 19. Our aim goes beyond helping an athlete make their school’s A-team or even Team Canada (although we can help with this).
Elevate coaches are always positive and high – energy. We teach the #FUNdamentals of Ultimate to our Elementary athletes, and refine our High School athletes’ skills and strategy.
WHAT IS ULTIMATE FRISBEE?
Ultimate frisbee is a team sport which mixes elements of football, basketball and rugby, substituting the ball with a flying disc (Frisbee) and the referee with spirit of the game. It’s the most popular sport among those played with a flying disc. Invented and popularized in high schools and universities in the United States in the ’60s, Ultimate came to Europe in the early ’80s. It is now played in over 500 countries and has a good chance of being an Olympic sport in 2028.
WHAT IS DISC GOLF?
Disc golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of a ball and clubs, however, players use a flying disc, or Frisbee® The sport was formalized in the 1970′s, and shares with “ball golf” the object of completing each hole in the fewest number of strokes (or, in the case of disc golf, fewest number of throws). A golf disc is thrown from a tee area to a target which is the “hole”. the hole can be one of a number of disc golf targets; the most common is called a Pole Hole® an elevated metal basket.
In Ultimate, one athlete literally cannot do it alone. You cannot dribble up the court and dunk it, or skate end-to-end and score a sweet goal. You are not allowed to run with the disc so athletes must pass to, and rely on their teammates to achieve success.
Ultimate is self-refereed and at first, this fact raises many eyebrows. You may be asking yourself right now, “Won’t the kids just cheat?” It turns out that when every athlete on the field becomes the referee, they learn the true value of sportspersonship.
Ultimate is progressive and strives to create an inter-sectional, inclusive, and safe space for all its athletes. Upwind Ultimate is a great example of an organization that is breaking boundaries in sport and pushing Ultimate athletes to become more aware of intersectionality.
