Ultimate  is a fairly new sport that is growing rapidly throughout the US. It was created in 1968 by Joel Silver.

The sport grew significantly after the first college game between Princeton and Rutgers. Rutgers won 29-27.

Today, there are over 100,000 players in 40 nations, and over 13,000 UPA members in the United States.

1. Backhand- The backhand is the most common and basic throw. You simply reach across your body, while holding the disc around the rim, and flick your wrist while releasing the disc. This throw is helpful when "hucking" the disc downfield.

2. Flick- A flick is the second most common throw. To do this, place your middle and index finger on the inside of the disc, leaving your thumb on the side of the disc. Keep the disc on the right side of your body (if you are right-handed), and flick your wrist. Try not to use very much of your arm to throw this because it will cause you to mess up.

3. Hammer- A hammer is a useful throw when trying to break a defender up high. You will grip a hammer just like a flick, except throw it upside down and across your head. Try to keep this throw fairly low and out of the wind.
