Flying Discs, Teams, and Games Without Referees: Ultimate is Played Here!

What do the University of Oregon, University of Alabama, Baylor University, and University of Notre Dame have in common besides being in the top twenty ranking for college football? They all also have highly competitive Ultimate Clubs for both men and women. In fact, most colleges, small and large, around the country have Ultimate teams that compete against each other in leagues and tournaments.

Ultimate is played on a field comparable to a narrow football field. There are seven people on the field during play. There are no referees in an Ultimate game, so players call their own fouls and learn to work out any disputes themselves. Players learn fair play, good sportsmanship, and a great sense of personal responsibility, which is called the “spirit” of the game. This links in beautifully to our Montessori inspired philosophy of educating children to be responsible, respectful and independent—especially in the way of conflict resolution.

Ultimate is a big deal here in the Pacific Northwest! Children and adults play it, and there are leagues throughout the year organized by the local governing body, DiscNW

We are excited to offer Ultimate Frisbee for Grades 3-8. Faculty and staff members coach the teams. If there are enough players on our grades 4-5 and 6-8 teams, they will play six games on Saturdays between the middle of March and the beginning of May as part of DiscNW's league.

Eton Phoenix Ultimate has a 3rd grade team, a 4th/5th grade team, and a Middle School (6th-8th) team. The teams are coached by Eton’s teachers and staff.
