  • Ultimate Frisbee (7-12)

    We are excited you are interested in being part of our team.

    Cathedral Ultimate is open to boys and girls in grades 7-12th grade.  Practices are held at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in St. Cloud after school in the spring.

    For team information, schedules and to Register for Ultimate Frisbee Click here.

    What is 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 seven-player squads with a high-tech plastic disc on a field 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.
