School Games

In 2018 Ultimate was formally added to the School Games (a Sport England-funded initiative responsible for over 3.5 million sports participation opportunities for young people every year) as a sanctioned sport

 

The interest we have seen from Active Partnerships and School Games Organisers (those responsible for organising events and encouraging participation from schools) in running Ultimate events has been huge. Those familiar with the sport won't be surprised to hear that our Spirit of the Game concept has been a major factor in this success, providing the young people taking part the opportunity to develop (and be rewarded for) their communication skills and emotional management, whilst also having fun playing our exciting sport!



 

Get Involved

Being a School Games sport means it becomes much easier for teachers to include Ultimate in their school, and from there, to start playing with and against the other schools in their area. If you're a teacher or SGO wanting to learn how it works then check out the Ultimate page on the School Games website.

Socially Distanced School Games Activities

We know its been tough to keep playing Ultimate since the beginning of the pandemic, so to help with that we've create a set of Socially distanced KS2 School Games activities that you can try out! Although they have been designed with KS2 in mind with a bit of adaptation (adjustment of distance etc) they can also work with other age groups.

 

 



 

 

 

“The children have thoroughly enjoyed their experiences playing Ultimate Frisbee. This is an exciting sport that really encourages team work and respect. The Spirit of the Game element means that children who might normally be intimidated by competitive sport can represent their school and enjoy it. The children thrived in such a positive sporting atmosphere and it was lovely to see them grow in confidence. They were genuinely delighted to be awarded with gold medals after others scored them highly. They didn’t stop smiling all week!” – Rachel Burke, Russel Scott Primary School, Tameside.
