The actual first game to fruition when it was played back in 1968. Joel Silver, a then-student of Columbia High School, proposed a school Frisbee team. From these small acorns grew what the game is today with little about the rules and pitch markings changing for the first day that they started playing Ultimate.
A huge part of Ultimate Frisbee is the avocation of the ‘spirit of the game’. This is when teams are noticed and awarded for their numerous contributions to the smooth running and good pieces of sportsmanship that are displayed when playing a game. In fact, it is customary in every tournament that a ‘spirit award’ be given out to the team that has most showed off these qualities when playing.
