What is Ultimate? Its a game played with your friends and a Disc (a.k.a. frisbee). The game is a non-contact game that borrows some of the best aspects of soccer, basketball and American football. Official games have 2 teams with 7 players each. The goal is to complete passes to your teammates to advance the Disc down a field that is similar to an American football field. A point is scored by completing a pass to a member of your team in the endzone. If the offense fails to complete a pass or a pass goes out of bounds the defense immediately becomes the offense and attempts to move the Disc the towards the other endzone. This leads to a very fast paced game that has emphasis on skills of throwing and catching the frisbee. For basics of ultimate see

Currently there are several groups known to play in Idaho Falls. A group primarily from Idaho National Laboratory plays the baseball diamond at the corner of Science Center Drive and North Fremont at Freeman Park at lunch time various times during the week. Another group plays some week night and weekend evenings at the football field in Tautphaus Park. In the summers of 2007 and 2008 the groups combined with another group of Bureau of Land Management folks and other Ultimate enthusiasts who waundered by to play on many evenings at Community Park. In 2009 possibly we'll expand on this group. If you are interested in playing regularly, semi-regularly, or even form your own team send a note to the email below. Maybe we can get a small league going. Other news, a group of INL players still play about once a week even during the winter. A consecutive weeks streak has been marred only by the Christmas holiday this year.
