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.


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

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.

Looking to learn more about the athletics program for middle and high school students? We want to hear from you! Contact Athletic Director Michael Quinn via email: athletic@denveraldorf.org


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.
