Ultimate Frisbee

"Get Big" with the Spartans

We are pleased to announce that The Denver Waldorf School will participate in USAU Youth Ultimate Frisbee this year! Our last season on the field was a championship season, and we look forward to riding that momentum into 2021. Open to middle and high school students, ultimate is a coed sport that kicks off at the end of March and ends in May at the State Tournament.

About Ultimate

Combining the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football, a game of Ultimate is played by two teams with a flying disc or Frisbee on a field with end zones, similar to football. The object of the game is to score by catching a pass in the opponent’s end zone.

A player must stop running while in possession of the disc, but may pivot and pass to any of the other receivers on the field. Ultimate is a transition game in which players move quickly from offense to defense on turnovers that occur with a dropped pass, an interception, a pass out of bounds, or when a player is caught holding the disc for more than ten seconds. Ultimate is governed by Spirit of the Game, a tradition of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the players
rather than referees.

ULTIMATE PRACTICE AND GAMES

We practice during the week after school, with midweek games (April) and weekend tournaments (May). Full details coming soon!

Coed Practice

Practice for middle and high school girls and boys officially starts the first week in April, but we aim to gather the students over Spring Break to keep them moving!

  • Day: Tuesday through Thursday
  • Time: TBD
  • Location: Harvard Gulch Park

Coed Games

We are livestreaming home games so you won’t miss a beat, and you can even catch certain away games, too. At this time, we are still determining whether we will open up games to in-person spectators.

AT THE HEART OF DENVER WALDORF SPORTS

Our athletics program aims to reclaim youth sports for what they once were and always should have been: fun, communal and participatory. There are no tryouts or cuts, even through high school. Instead, each athlete is inspired to reach their highest potential, contributing to the team through enthusiasm, hard work, grace, and resilience. Every athlete has their place on our teams.
